Barcelona are expected to have a busy summer transfer window, with club officials looking to resurrect their financial situation. Incoming will be targeted, but to offset this, outgoings will be required in order to help balance the books.
One player that Barcelona are expected to keep around is Ez Abde. The 21-year-old was facing an uncertain future in Catalonia before this season, but an impressive loan spell at Osasuna has elevated his prominence at his parent club.
However, if Barcelona were to receive a big offer, they’d likely move on Abde due to their financial issues. That could be the case, with Sport reporting that Atletico Madrid are looking into making a summer move for the Moroccan international.
Barcelona have an agreement with Atletico that could see them signing Yannick Carrasco for as little as €15m. As such, Los Rojiblancos could look to replace the Belgian with Abde as Diego Simeone prepares for a big summer in the Spanish capital.
However, Barcelona value Abde a lot higher than the reported fee for Carrasco, so Atletico Madrid would likely have to dig deep into their pockets in order to sign him/
