FC Barcelona is showing interest in Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak for a long-term target. The Swedish striker has shown immense talent in la Liga Matches.
FC Barcelona at this moment facing difficulties in their attacking qualities. After replacing their main striker Luis Suarez, they tried different players to fit in that position but they don’t have a proper striker to perform in big games.
They couldn’t make a proper formation and their Lionel Messi is lacking on a supporting player.
The Catalan giants tried to make a link with Kylian Mbappe and Erling Haaland in the next 12 months, but a move for either player could trigger a world record fee.
After COVID 19 pandemic in the 2019-20 season suffered a lot in the financial department. And Barcelona’s current financial condition is such that they can’t even properly pay the salaries of every player. So, it can be a fair decision to go for a low-budget transfer in this Summer market.
According to ESPN, FC Barcelona wants Isak for a long-term transfer for their striker position until the summer of 2024. He is holding a release clause of €70m, also former club Borussia Dortmund may call on the €30m buy-back option to replace Erling Haaland, the superstar forward that Barcelona was keen to recruit last January.
Isak’s performances have been tracked by Barcelona scouts since October 2020. The current sporting directors Ramon Planes set every plan for the transfer market and combing it to make decisions not worrying about whoever president will be.
Alexander Isak scored 16 goals in his first year for La Real and this season he showed an impressive return of 12 goals in 20 games. Starting off the season was bad for him but made a hat-trick comeback against Alaves.
Also, Erling Haaland eyed by Barcelona this season, this could be a high budget transfer if the Spanish Giants could make their decision with the Borussia Dortmund Superstar.
