"Daily Sports" said that because Barcelona was clearly behind Bayern in the fight for Durst, it turned to Norwich's Aarens.
It is reported that Barcelona had contact with Norwich for the first time two weeks ago, and they have negotiated a five-year contract with the players. The newspaper yesterday also exposed a photo of Aarens wearing a Barcelona jersey when he was 7 years old, saying that the player wanted to play for Barcelona and would join as a loan. There was no buyout clause in the contract.
Norwich rejected Barcelona's request for a lease with no buyout clauses given by Barcelona on Friday, demanding that if the lease is leased, it must be accompanied by a buyout clause next summer. Norwich’s asking price is 20 million euros, plus a 10 million euro floating bonus, but a lower offer may be accepted.
