Following in the footsteps of Nico Williams, Barça is now set on the price to pay to secure the player’s services.

As he enters a fourth season at Athletic Bilbao, Nico Williams is one of the stars in Spain. A very sought-after star, so to speak. Lately, it’s Barça who seem to be focusing on the native of Pamplona. In any case, the management of the Catalan team now knows what it will cost to afford the Spanish jewel.

Athletic Bilbao raises price for Nico Williams

According to information provided by Mundo Deportivo, Athletic Bilbao are waiting for Barça to write a check for 60 million euros. That is 10 more than the latest news, since the amount initially set was 50 million euros. But there is no need to recall Barça’s more than critical financial situation. Can the leaders close the deal? Not sure, especially since sports director Deco intends to get a new midfielder.

This information seriously compromises the trend of seeing the 21-year-old winger land in Catalonia, even though he had reached an agreement with Barça last year. Enough to rejoice the competitors of the culé club on this issue. Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, Newcastle United and even Paris Saint-Germain have all inquired about the young Spaniard.

Nico Williams could be tempted to discover another championship, especially after monkey cries towards him last week. During his team’s defeat (1-3) against Atlético Madrid, the young striker was targeted by racist cries while he was going to take a corner. An isolated case ultimately affirmed the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).

This season, Nico Williams has scored 4 goals and provided 10 assists in 28 La Liga matches.
