As Barcelona continue to look for ways to generate revenue this summer, they could be set for a small financial boost courtesy of one of their former players in the form of Juan Miranda.

Indeed, as per reports relayed by SPORT, Barcelona inserted a 40% future sell-on clause in their agreement with Real Betis when selling him to the club back in 2021.

And that clause could now lead to the Catalans pocketing some cash as Miranda has emerged as a serious target for Premier League side Fulham.

Miranda came through the youth ranks at Barcelona’s La Masia academy, having joined the club in 2014.

The 23-year-old left-back made his first-team debut for the club in 2018 and went on to play four times, before spending the 2019/20 season out on loan at FC Schalke 04.

Upon returning, Miranda signed for Real Betis on loan in 2020 before making the move permanent a year later on a free transfer. As part of the agreement, Barcelona reserved a 40% future sell-on clause.

Miranda has gone on to make close to 80 appearances for Real Betis but could be on his way out this summer amid serious interest from Fulham.

The Premier League club’s manager, Marco Silva, is very much interested in signing the Spaniard and wants him at Craven Cottage this summer.

Given that his contract with the Seville-based outfit expires next year, this would be the last chance for them as well as Barcelona to stand to profit from his departure.

There is no mention of a possible fee in the report, but his market value stands at €9 million, and 40% of that value would still see Barcelona pocket close to €4 million.

It remains to be seen how things develop on this front, and Barcelona will be keeping a close watch on the situation.
