The Premier League’s decision to change Everton’s point deduction may have been great news for the Toffees, but it’s being taken a little differently in the Catalan media.

Following Monday’s announcement, outlet Mundo Deportivo now shares a story claiming that it ‘harms’ Barcelona for their ‘strategic signing’.

As repeatedly reported in recent weeks, the Camp Nou side are interested in Amadou Onana, and would like to pay Everton as little as possible for his transfer.

They were hopeful that the Toffees would be relegated to the Championship, as that’d give them a stronger position to negotiate with the Toffees.

Barcelona director Deco is said to see Onana as the target he ‘likes the most’, as they’re in big need of reinforcing their midfield.

With Everton now standing safer from the relegation zone, Mundo Deportivo highlights how the Premier League’s decision ‘plays in favour of Everton’ in this transfer situation.

There’s still a long way until the end of the season, but perhaps Barcelona would have to act like a normal club and pay what it takes for the signing, instead of hoping for a vulture opportunity.
