PSG and Tottenham Target Never Considered Barcelona Move as a Free Agent, Report Says

FC Barcelona are among the clubs keen on Athletic Club’s Nico Williams. His impressive performance at UEFA Euro 2024 has likely generated more significant interest in the 21-year-old.

A recent report from CaughtOffside reveals that Williams is on the radar of several major clubs, including Chelsea, Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, Tottenham, Barcelona, and PSG.

However, the latest information on this file from SPORT is good news for Barcelona, as Williams’ priority is to join Barcelona, even though Chelsea have made a dizzying financial offer.

Still, while the young winger reportedly wants a move to the Catalan side, Mundo Deportivo notes that Williams never considered leaving Athletic Club as a free agent, hence why he signed his extension but puts Barcelona in a tough position.

According to the Spanish media outlet, because Athletic Club treated his family well when the left winger of the Basque club faced the choice in 2024 to leave San Mamés for free or renew, he didn’t hesitate: he couldn’t leave Athletic, where they adore him and his brother Iñaki, leaving them empty-handed without receiving a single euro.

He could depart, but his brother might suffer the consequences of such a snub. Therefore, Nico instructed his agent, Félix Tainta, to negotiate with Athletic in good faith, defending his position and avoiding maximalist stances. This resulted in his contract extension until 2027 and a release clause of €58 million.
