Noussair Mazraoui has reportedly handed a boost to Barcelona as the 25-year-old wants to move to Camp Nou this summer.
According to a report by Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo, Noussair Mazraoui wants to end his frustrations at Bayern Munich. The 25-year-old is keen on leaving the Bundesliga club in the summer transfer window. And he is eager to join Barcelona ahead of the 2023/24 season.
Noussair Mazraoui has endured a difficult season since leaving Ajax as a free agent to join Bayern Munich last summer. The Moroccan international had several options on his table when he was due a Bosman move. And he chose to continue his fledgling career in the Bundesliga ahead of the 2022/23 season.
But Mazraoui’s decision has not worked, as he has struggled to become a regular for Bayern Munich. The 25-year-old failed to stamp his authority thus far, starting only 14 games across all competitions. And his frustrations have captured the attention of several high-profile clubs, including Barcelona.
Barcelona attempted to secure Mazraoui’s services last summer, with his free-agent status fitting the budget, or lack thereof, at Spotify Camp Nou. But a move did not materialise, with the player choosing to join Bayern Munich instead. However, Barcelona’s interest in the 25-year-old remains, despite his struggles in the Bundesliga.
While the 25-year-old full-back will not arrive in a Bosman move this time, his price tag might not be high. And Barcelona can raise enough sum by selling a few players. In addition, Sergio Busquets’s impending departure will also help make room in the wage bill. So Mazraoui’s arrival might be on the cards.
Meanwhile, the Moroccan international, who can play on either flank, is keen on joining Barcelona. He is ready to push for a move to Spotify Camp Nou if he leaves Bayern Munich this summer. But recent reports have claimed that the Bundesliga champions do not want to entertain offers for him.
