Barcelona’s Jean-Clair Todibo joined Schalke on loan in January and his performances for the Bundesliga club was sufficient to draw attention from several clubs across Europe.

Last week, we covered claims from Mundo Deportivo the defender has ‘received proposals’ from Watford, Southampton, Napoli, 1. FC Köln and Sevilla.

Barca’s idea is to sell him this summer and Mundo added the 20-year-old ‘wants to take time’ before deciding his next destination.

Another Catalan newspaper Sport now claim the La Liga giants’ technical leaders, in line with CEO Óscar Grau, have decided to cash in from the centre-back’s sale this summer.

The Catalan club remains hopeful of receiving €20m for the former Toulouse man.

It’s claimed Quique Setién’s side are ‘pleasantly surprised’ that several clubs called Camp Nou to register their interest in the player in recent months.

The list includes the Saints, Nigel Pearson’s side, Bayer Leverkusen, AC Milan and AS Monaco.

Unfortunately for Watford, Southampton and others suitors, the same report also explains Everton and AS Roma are battling it out for Todibo’s signature.

Sport say these two sides have made ‘firm offers’ for the central defender.
