The Barcelona prodigy will await better offers after approach by English side
According to Mundo Deportivo, Alex Collado got an offer from the British championship.
Sheffield United are the club interested in the youngster and are reportedly in contact to show interest. The English club have offered to loan players for the upcoming season.
In addition, Sheffield is ready to bear the entire salary package of the player. Collado is aware of the offer, but is currently holding it on hold and waiting to see if there will be a better offer than a move to England’s second division.
It seems that at the end of last season, the Barcelona B youth player moved to Catalonia and signed a new contract with the club which included a promotion clause.
Even though the club were all set to promote Collado, the competition for a starting place seemed too great. In pre-season, the player realized that he would not be watching too many minutes in the Catalan capital, so he decided to organize his future and look for a move.
Since entering a young age, he has received interest from Club Brugge and Braga, among others. However, talks stalled because the parties wanted a purchase option that neither Barcelona nor the player were interested in.
Additionally, Collado is reportedly looking into signing a contract with a team playing in the Champions League, but no approach has yet been taken.
With time in the transfer window, Collado must quickly find a solution. Each day that passes reduces the chances that a better offer will appear on the table.
