Fulham and Barcelona reached an agreement for Jean-Clair Todibo’s transfer and this has been reported up by Mundo Deportivo and Sport in the last two days.
The Cottagers tabled an €18m bid, but the signing wasn’t concluded as the centre-back, who didn’t fancy a move to Fulham, was studying the English club’s proposal.
RAC1, via Sport, once again explains the agreement in principle between the two sides, but the 20-year-old ‘resists’ the option to join Scott Parker’s side.
Borussia Dortmund have joined the race to acquire the France U20 international’s services and the defender ‘likes’ the Bundesliga club.
A move to Dortmund would allow him to play in the Champions League, something that will not be possible if he swaps the Camp Nou for Craven Cottage.
Fulham’s sporting project is less convincing for Todibo, more so when you compare it with that of the German club.
The player is not included in Ronald Koeman’s plans this season and despite knowing his situation, he and his representatives are not making it easy for Barca to offload him.
