Barca offer ‘€30m plus players’ for Alcacer

Barcelona’s offer for Valencia forward Paco Alcacer is €30m plus the loans of Munir El Haddadi and Sergi Samper, and Diego Alves is wanted still.

Mundo Deportivo reports the players have been added to the approach for the Spain international but Munir doesn’t want to leave Camp Nou and Samper is wanted by Paco Jemez at Granada.

It’s been claimed Barca and Alcacer have already agreed a contract but getting Los Che to consent to the deal is proving more difficult, though there could be movement after the second leg of the Supercopa de Espana, against Sevilla on Wednesday.

Munir has been told that he should leave Barca to get more playing time elsewhere, the report adds, but he is emboldened by his goal in the Supercopa first leg and wants to remain, while it’s felt Valencia are in need of midfield options after the departures of Javi Fuego and Andre Gomes.

Alves is the preferred choice to join to replace Claudio Bravo, who appears bound for Manchester City, and his arrival is much more straightforward than that of teammate Alcacer.

The Brazil international, currently with his country at the Olympic Games, is third choice at Valencia and it’s believed he would accept Barca’s offer to be back-up to Marc-Andre Ter Stegen.
