Barcelona could be set for a small financial boost in the summer transfer window from one of their former strikers – Ferran Jutgla. The Spaniard, currently at Club Brugge, is linked with an exit, and his ex-club could end up gaining from it.

Barcelona sold him for a discounted price of around €5 million to Brugge in the summer, but made sure to retain 10% of his rights in the process. As such, should the Belgian outfit choose to sell him, Barça would end up getting 10% of the total transfer fees.

One of the parties linked to Jutgla, according to SPORT, is Benfica. And their interest stems from Goncalo Ramos’ potential exit in the summer.

The Portuguese has scored a massive 17 goals (joint-top) in 24 appearances this season, and is on the radar of several top clubs, including the likes of Manchester United.

Benfica have identified Jutgla as one of the potential replacements. Having scored ten goals, and assisted five in 30 appearances in the Belgian Pro League, he is among the players with most goal contributions, with Brugge still in the top four.

He also recorded two goals and assists each in the Champions League this season, including one each in a 2-0 win against Atletico Madrid.

Brugge would be looking to get around double — nearly €10 million — of what they paid for him in the summer, which would secure around a €1 million in sell-on fees for Barcelona.

While it is not a huge sum, it helps Barcelona massive in times of financial trouble.
