On Tuesday, we carried a report from Marca, who explained Barcelona have made a ‘formal offer’ for Dani Olmo and these claims were also made by Mundo Deportivo on Tuesday.

Another Spanish newspaper AS claims sources close to the La Liga winners have denied making a formal bid for the Dinamo Zagreb star, but they confirmed their interest in 21-year-old.

Any approach from the Catalan club in signing the Spain international will not be easy because they are ‘aware’ of competition from Manchester City.

The report suggests Pep Guardiola’s side are also interested in the attacking midfielder and are in the race for Olmo’s signature.

Olmo has publicly expressed his desire to leave Dinamo Zagreb and the report sates the Croatian side will demand €40m to sanction his sale. 

Barca’s idea is to bring Olmo back to the club after the end of this season and not in the winter market.

Chelsea and Tottenham have been linked elsewhere in Spain today, so added to Manchester City and Barcelona this one looks like a serious battle.
