According to French Foot Mercato, Barça would ask for less than €25m for Jean-Clair Todibo, unless the 20-year-old will take part in a new loan deal. Things are accelerating for the young defender’s departure, and it remains to be seen where the 20-year-old will land after spending a season on loan at Schalke.
The player is not in Barcelona’s plans for the season, hence is in official talks with interested clubs. Currently, Rennes and Napoli are leading the race to sign Todibo. The two clubs have already officially contacted the Catalan club and the player’s representatives.
Reportedly, Todibo wants to leave Barça himself as well, and some German clubs which remain unspecified show interest in the player too. At 20 years of age, Todibo has already had minutes in three major leagues; La Liga (Barcelona), Bundesliga (Schalke), and Ligue 1 (Toulouse); which adds quite some value on the player experience-wise.
His departure is still being studied by the Catalan club, and all options are being put on the table.
Barcelona legend Ronaldinho tests Positive for COVID-19
Former Barcelona player and club legend Ronaldinho has confirmed that he tested positive for COVID-19.
The World Cup winner, through a story he posted on Instagram, broke the news, saying that he tested positive for Coronavirus, while being asymptomatic, and self-isolating in Belo Horizonte, Brazil.
“I’ve been here in Belo Horizonte since yesterday, I came to participate in an event.” Ronaldinho says in the video, before adding, “I took the test and tested positive for COVID. I am fine, asymptomatic, but we will have to postpone the event for later.”
The Brazilian legend ends the video on a positive note, by saying, “Soon we will be there together. Big hug!”
The 40-year-old joined Barcelona in 2003, and is often said to be one of the best players to play for the club. He is also called for being a revolutionary, helping Barcelona win their first Champions League in the new era, and their second ever after a 14 year gap. We wish Ronaldinho a speedy recovery!
