Dani Olmo was very close to Barcelona on the deadline of transfer window
Young Spanish prodigy and top-tier player opened up about the potential transfer. Olmo said that Barca made the last move on the deadline day but the deal never happened.
Last day contact
Barcelona made a last ditch attempt to sign Dani Olmo before the end of the summer transfer window, and the player himself admits everything happened in a flash. The Spanish international was in negotiations with the Blaugrana on the final day of the transfer window but a move eventually never materialised. There was no time to even think about a transfer, everything happened too quickly,” Olmo told a German newspaper . For now I have my mind on the season with Leipzig, and I’m fine here. I really want to play, to fight in international tournaments again. That is my motivation. Barcelona sporting director Mateu Alemany also spoke about the attempted Olmo transfer during the presentation of Luuk de Jong, without giving too much away. We could talk about many players because in the last days of the market we began various negotiations with players who could’ve helped us in the offensive third – Olmo said. I would not like to talk about professionals who are not here but we have several windows and several players under control. Many things could happen, but in the end it happened that Luuk de Jong arrived as our forward.
Barcelona made last minute deals
Laporta was very active on the deadline day. The team signed not only Memphis Depay but also few strikers. Barcelona signed a player from Sevilla. Luuk De Jong signed for Barca on the last day of the transfer window. It was the last hour of the transfer window and he was very happy about the deal. De Jong posted a statement about Sevilla and how they helped him to improve. At the same time, De Jong will be a good addition to Barca during the La Liga season.
