Intermediaries have reportedly offered Barcelona the chance to sign 26-year-old Portuguese international Goncalo Guedes this month.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona will have the chance to sign Goncalo Guedes this month. Jorge Mendes has offered the 26-year-old Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker to the Blaugrana. And the player has emerged as a candidate to replace Memphis Depay.
Goncalo Guedes ended his long stint with Valencia to join Wolverhampton Wanderers in the summer transfer window. But the spell at the Molineux has not gone to plan as he has blown hot and cold. In addition, the Portuguese international has lost his spot under the tutelage of Julen Lopetegui.
The former Real Madrid manager recently dropped Guedes from his team. And the 26-year-old, who has two goals and one assist in 18 appearances for Wolverhampton Wanderers this season, wants to return to Spain. The player’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has now offered him to Barcelona.
Barcelona will likely enter the market for an offensive reinforcement before the January transfer window shuts down. That is because Memphis Depay is on the verge of joining Atletico Madrid in a permanent deal. With the Dutchman’s frustrations at Spotify Camp Nou set to end, Barcelona will need a replacement.
Goncalo Guedes has thus emerged as a potential option for the Blaugrana. Recent reports claimed that the 26-year-old Portuguese international featured on Barcelona’s radar. And with Jorge Mendes offering the player to the resurgent club, a January move might be on the cards. But the Wolverhampton Wanderers attacker is not a priority target for Barcelona this month.
The Catalan giants are instead focusing on signing Marcelo Brozovic from Inter Milan in an audacious move. Barcelona and Brozovic’s entourage are already in contact to discuss a possible January deal. But the Blaugrana will also need to bolster the attack, even though Depay has been a bit-part player.
So it will be interesting to see if Barcelona will approach Wolverhampton Wanderers over a potential January deal for Guedes. With the Black Country outfit signing Pablo Sarabia, a move is on the horizon. For now, Mendes has offered the 26-year-old Portuguese international to Barcelona.
