Barcelona could insert a buy-back clause should they plan on selling emerging defender Mikayil Faye, with Manchester United interested.

According to Mundo Deportivo via Sport Witness, Barcelona might look to insert a buyback clause in any deal to sell Mikayil Faye. The 19-year-old Manchester United target could leave the Catalans for a reported €30 million price tag, but there are challenges for the Spanish giants regarding those clauses.

Barcelona mull over buyback clause for Mikayil Faye

Barcelona are in a strange position ahead of one of the most important summers ahead of them. The club are still reeling from their abysmal financial situation that could restrict their hand in the transfer market, especially when they need to strengthen their squad in multiple areas.

The Catalans also have to make a few key decisions on player sales, with some of their notable stars likely to leave to raise funds for new transfers. One of those names could be that of emerging defender Mikayil Faye. The 19-year-old Manchester United target has many clubs chasing his signature, with Barcelona contemplating adding a buy-back clause to his contract.

Faye has been impressive, but he is at the period when he has to play regularly with some club. Barcelona’s idea of adding a buyback clause may work out should Faye leave for a mid-table club in any of the other top five leagues.

For instance, Manchester United is closely monitoring his situation. But they are the sort of club that might not entertain a buy-back clause in player deals. Hence, should Barcelona get their way, they might have to sell Faye to a club of lesser stature, which may not land them the money they wish to seek for the midfielder.

Mikayil Faye will mull over options

Faye might want to play regularly next season, either at Barcelona or at another club. The defender is keen to make his presence felt, as a recent call-up to the Senegalese national team will have propelled his confidence to new heights.

Barcelona are already mulling about selling him for a decent price. The Blaugrana are already mulling about selling him for a decent price. Meanwhile, several clubs will be chasing his signature, with Barcelona even rejecting RC Lens’ approach for the defender.
