In order to strengthen its midfield, the Catalan club would think of Lamine Camara. As would the Saudi Arabian club Al-Ittihad, who would like to associate Sadio Mané and Kevin De Bruyne.

All the leads are good for FC Barcelona at the start of the transfer window, but it is very difficult to know which one will arrive in Catalonia by the end of this transfer period. Because one thing is certain, the Catalan club cannot recruit the players it wants because of its financial situation which has been delicate to say the least for several years. However, it will be necessary to strengthen Hans-Dieter Flick’s squad, particularly in midfield.

Who says economic difficulty in football necessarily says less expensive transfer, as was the case during the last summer transfer window. Suddenly, Laporta and Deco would currently be looking towards Lorraine where a certain Lamine Camara (20 years old) would be in the sights and could do the trick in the Blaugrana midfield.

Revelation of the 2023-2024 season in French Ligue 1 with FC Metz, the Senegalese international is expected to leave the Club with the Cross of Lorraine this summer. Tracked by Monaco, Galatasaray and Premier League clubs, there is no progress in his file yet. This is why, according to information from the Catalan media Sport, taken up by wiwsport, Barça would examine the situation of the former resident of Génération Foot, who would be valued at 10 million euros.
According to the same source, Lamine Camara “would be delighted” to wear the jersey of a team like Barça that could consider a loan with an option to buy. But for the moment, the Catalans have not made any approach to the player’s clan or to Fc Metz. It is therefore difficult to see them going through with this matter. While waiting to find out what his future holds, Lamine Camara will start the pre-season with Fc Metz, relegated to Ligue 2 BKT.

Al-Ittihad wants the Senegalese and the Belgian
While Kevin De Bruyne has just been eliminated from Euro 2024 with Belgium, he (105 caps, 28 goals) seems to have finally made a decision about his future.

According to information relayed by Sport, taken up by Senenews, the 33-year-old midfielder has agreed to join the Middle East this summer and has reached an agreement with Al-Ittihad. Fifth in the Saudi Pro League last season, the Jeddah-based club did not achieve the expected results at the start of the season and has already begun its transformation by announcing the departure of Marcelo Gallardo. Eager to return to the top of the championship, Al-Ittihad intends to carry out an ambitious transfer window where Kevin De Bruyne would be a first prestigious recruit.

Al-Ittihad must now find common ground with Manchester City, who would not be opposed to the departure of the 33-year-old player. The Belgian could find Sadio Mané at Al-Ittihad. According to “Transfer News”, the latter has been offered on loan to this club. Linked to Al-Nassr until 2026, who want to transfer him to Al-Ittihad, the native of Bambali, who receives an annual salary of 40 million euros, therefore demands the remaining 80 million euros to leave the club during this summer transfer window.

The Saudi press indicates that Mane is determined to fight to get what is his. To be continued…
