Be careful, Barça! The 3 big Premier League players who want to sign Alejandro Balde

Manchester City, Manchester United and Chelsea are engaged in an intense battle to sign Alejandro Balde from FC Barcelona. Reports suggest the left-back could be one of the top signings next summer. While all three Premier League clubs are expressing interest, Manchester City could have a strategic advantage.

Barcelona could be forced to sell some assets amid financial problems and Balde, a product of their spoils, is being offered as an option. Although Chelsea appear to be the strongest rivals, Manchester City are already negotiating with Barcelona over Joao Cancelo’s future, which could complicate the situation and give City an ace up their sleeve.

The Premier League is free

Despite extending Balde’s contract until 2028 with a significant release clause, Barcelona could consider offers, especially if they include players in the negotiations, as was the case with Cancelo. However, the Catalan club is reluctant to let go of Balde, who was a key defensive player under Xavi.

Although the 20-year-old full-back is aware of Premier League interest, Barcelona are determined to keep him unless he is made an offer they cannot refuse. Balde has proven his worth with 73 games played, a recent contract extension and his prominent role in both La Liga and the Champions League.

The Premier League sees Balde as a valuable addition as Manchester City look for more depth at the position, Manchester United struggles with injuries in defense and Chelsea consider options for the future. However, Barcelona will not give up on their young talent so easily and the battle to sign him is expected to be intense until next summer.
