Nico is not coming.
How do you say with such certainty?
Send this cuck to manchester united. They would pay a lot, and for their sake he's at least twice a player then that anthony and garnacho idiots they have at disposal.
Not a big fan of him but I'm still calm because he was injured and lacks rhythm. Very unbrazilian winger when it comes to dribbling, yet he still managed to contribute quite a bit last season and I'm optimistic he can provide that again. Second season is always a deciding one if someone makes it at a club or not.
Let's be honest, 60M is too much for him in the old market, but with these highly inflated prices that's like 15-20M back then. Back when everyone made big eyes when Barca spent 40M on a high-flying David Villa.
Don't get me wrong, if a good offer close his market value comes in Barca should consider it and even take it, but it's not as easy at it sounds to get a proper replacement. Lamine still needs some years to develop behind a starter and maybe Raphinha can provide these years.
We could argue club should have spent Torres + Raphinha millions on one proper elite winger, but who could you get realistically in club's financial situation back then? Even the more expensive ones aren't a sure bet as seen with Sancho, although that kinda could've been expected as he always lacked pace for an elite player.
