According to Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are willing to make a €14m bid for Celta Vigo striker Nolito, who would return to the Camp Nou to replace Pedro, who’s move to Manchester United looks to be getting closer and closer.
Luis Enrique, Barcelona’s manager, has asked for the Catalans’ hierarchy to make a move for the former Barca star.
Celta Vigo’s release clause in Nolito’s current contract is set at €18m, but the La Liga side would undoubtedly let their star return to the La Liga champions for a tad less, as the Spanish outlet have suggested that Barca would let the player return to the Balaidos for six months, as they wait for their transfer ban to be over.
The Catalans are set to offer their former player an outstanding four-year-deal at the Nou Camp, and will treble the Spanish international’s wages that he is currently on at Celta Vigo.
Nolito was the backbone of Barcelona B’s incredible team that earned promotion to the Segunda Division again after departing the 2nd league in Spain 11 years prior.
Luis Enrique and Nolito were then reunited at Celta Vigo, as the player signed a four-year-deal back in 2013. Despite the fact that the boss left just one year later, Nolito remained at the club and continued his progress as a footballer. He was then rewarded after all his hard work after he was called up to the Spanish senior team in 2014.
