Barcelona put together €30m supply for former La Masia star

Reports from Spain have given Barcelona an interest in Dani Olmo.

Olmo’s previous career

Dani Olmo was inducted into Barcelona’s famous La Masia youth system in 2007, but despite having spent eight years at the club, he was never granted a senior-level appearance.

Olmo would then leave Barca in 2015 and join Dinamo Zagreb, who sold him to Leipzig last year.

During his stay in Croatia, Olmo scored 124 games for Zagreb, scoring 34 goals and providing 28 assists.

Then, as mentioned above, Olmo was brought in by RB Leipzig in 2020, for whom he has played 67 times since then, scoring 12 and assisting 14.

Olmo back to Barcelona?

But could Olmo return to Barcelona now?

If the above reports from Spain are correct, this could very well happen.

According to Goal, citing the Spanish outlet El Nacional:

Barcelona are preparing to make a € 30m (£ 26m / $ 34m) offer for Spanish international striker Dani Olmo during the winter window, claim El Nacional. A man who spent some time as a youngster in the famous La Masia academy system is currently in the books of the Bundesliga team RB Leipzig.

While Barcelona are undoubtedly a quality talent, do they really have to sign Olmo now?

Its main positions are center center or attack center. And while there are a lot of problems with Barcelona’s squad right now, you’d probably say that midfield isn’t one of them.

Pedri, Gavi, Nico Gonzalez and Riqui Puig are all promising talents, while Frenkie de Jong has proven in the past that he is a world class player.

In this sense, would Xavi and Co. isn’t it better to spend this money elsewhere?
