Barcelona are willing to include three players to complete the signing of Andre Onana from Ajax.
The Spanish giants have been linked with a swoop for the Cameroon international keeper. Onana is Ajax’s main keeper but came up through the Barcelona youth system.
Spanish media reports that the Catalans are willing to include their own reserve keeper, Neto, as well as one of Riqui Puig, Alex Collado, and Carles Aleñá. Those younger outfield players could be loan deals, however.
Ajax set the price for the keeper at £35m as they are unwilling to let go of their high-performing player. But neither Barcelona nor other interested teams such as Chelsea or Paris Saint-Germain were willing to pay that price.
However, prospective clubs are hoping that the price will come down as the coronavirus pandemic has impacted on the transfer market.
Barcelona reportedly value Neto between 20 and 25 million, and the idea is to only get Onana if they do not have to spend much more than they get out of Neto.
If the price was too high, Barcelona B’s Iñaki Peña could become the backup keeper.
