Amid all the speculations linking Joshua Kimmich to a move to FC Barcelona, it appears even FC Barcelona are looking to raid the Catalan club this summer, for the services of Alejandro Balde.

According to Gerard Romero, Bayern have sent an offer to the young Barcelona left-back over a potential move to Allianz Arena this summer.

It is no secret that the Bavarians are in the market for fullbacks lately. They have not had much luck with the acquisition of Joao Cancelo, who has become a target for Barcelona in the coming summer.

Existing options such as Lucas Hernandez has struggled with injuries while Alphonso Davies has been linked with a move away from Bavaria. This has forced Bayern to enter the market for a new left-back, who can prove to be a long-term option for coach Thomas Tuchel.

Balde has emerged as the ideal option as the young Spaniard has shown immense potential at Camp Nou this season. He has featured in 41 competitive matches this term, racking up one goal and seven assists.

The 19-year-old has impressed the onlookers with his speed and technical ability. He is versatile enough to operate at right-back as well – making him quite an asset for coach Xavi.

Romero, though, admits Bayern might not find much success pursuing Balde this summer. Barcelona are determined to keep hold of their young left-back as they consider him a vital part of the club’s project under Xavi Hernandez.

Romero adds that Balde will likely end up signing a contract extension at Camp Nou. His current deal at the club expires in 2024, but Barça could add a customary €1 billion release clause to his new deal.
