Manchester City have been handed something of a bonus in their potential pursuit for Dani Olmo, with his €60m release clause extended by five days.

That’s according to Sport, who report that Spain’s progression to the final of Euro 2024 means Olmo’s clause has been given an extension.

The midfielder has been one of the star performers for La Roja this summer, playing a key role as they’ve made their way to the final and arguably been the best team at the tournament in Germany too.

His performances seem likely to spark a battle for his signature, with several big sides in Europe credited with an interest, particularly as he has a €60m release clause in his current contract.

Manchester City are one of those reported to be interested in him, with it explained earlier this month that the prospect of a move was getting ‘really hot’. That was then followed up by a claim they could easily pay his release clause if they wished to do so.

The big problem was that the clause has an expiry date set into it, although that issue has been somewhat lessened after Spain made it to the final of Euro 2024.

Sport report that, according to their information, Spain’s success means that the €60m clause has now been extended by five days. So, rather than expiring on the July 15th, it will now expire on July 20th.

Any club that reaches an agreement with the player can acquire him for that figure up that point, and now have ten days rather than five days to do so.

Whether Manchester City do move remains to be seen but the opportunity is there and has now been extended, almost tempting them into moving.
