Barcelona offer conditions-based wage structure to Nico Williams

La Liga heavyweights Barcelona are reportedly offering a conditional wage structure to Athletic Club attacker Nico Williams, a target for Chelsea.

According to reputed Spanish journalist Alex Pintanel, Barcelona and Chelsea are interested in Nico Williams. Both clubs are ready to propose contracts to the Spanish international, with the West London club offering double the money compared to the Blaugrana. As for the Catalan giants, they will pay the Athletic Club attacker a fixed sum, which will increase based on the number of games he plays.

The rise and rise of Nico Williams

Nico Williams has established himself as one of the best young players in the world in the last few years. The Spaniard is a mainstay in the final third for his club and country and is enjoying exponential progress with every passing week.

The 21-year-old was phenomenal in the 2023/24 season, contributing to 27 goals in 37 outings across all competitions by finding the back of the net eight times and providing nine assists. Williams has continued his exploits at UEFA Euro 2020, playing his part in making Spain the most dominant team in the tournament.

Meanwhile, Nico Williams’s progress for his club and country has not gone unnoticed, capturing the attention of several high-profile clubs across Europe. Barcelona and Chelsea are among the prospective suitors vying for the Spanish international in the summer transfer window.

Big summer move beckoning?

Chelsea’s interest in Nico Williams is understandable. The Blues have been scouring the market for a wide attacker heading into the summer transfer window due to the inconsistent displays of Raheem Sterling and Mykhailo Mudryk. Williams has thus emerged as a viable target for Chelsea, with the West London club ready to offer a lucrative contract to him.

The update by Alex Pintanel has suggested that Chelsea’s offer will be double what Barcelona can pay the 21-year-old Spanish international. The Blaugrana might part ways with Raphinha and Ferran Torres this summer, with Williams the priority target for them. Alex Pintanel has revealed that Barcelona will offer a fixed amount to Williams, with his wages increasing as he plays more.

Personal terms should not be an issue for Barcelona despite offering considerably less than Chelsea. The Spaniard is keen on joining the Blaugrana and will snub other suitors to join the Catalan outfit. Meanwhile, Joan Laporta has proclaimed that Barcelona can afford Williams. So, a summer move is on the cards.
