Nico Williams provides an update on his future amid Barcelona links

As is already widely known, Barcelona is fervently attempting to sign Nico Williams from Athletic Club this summer. With the new season approaching with Hansi Flick in charge, the 21-year-old Spanish international has become the top priority to bolster the attacking left side.

But the young player’s €58–60 million release clause is viewed as a bit of a roadblock, and the growing competition for his talents adds to the difficulty. According to SPORT, Blaugrana has already made an offer to Athletic Club for €40 million, to be paid in two installments of €20 million each, plus Inigo Martinez (market value of €5 million) in exchange for the signing of the Spanish winger.

Barça is preparing a second proposal with a much higher budget, though, as they believe their first will be turned down.

Martinez will be included in the deal, and the Catalans are preparing a second offer worth a set fee of €55 million plus an additional €10 million in variables. With Martinez added, the operation’s overall worth would surpass Nico’s release clause by €65 million.

Nevertheless, Barcelona plans to pay the €55 million fixed price in two installments of €25 million and €30 million instead of paying the whole release clause amount all at once. Furthermore, according to journalist Jose Alvarez, the Catalans want to pay the Spaniard between €8 million and €15 million.
