The midfielder who tested Barcelona

Amidst the restructuring and changes in the FC Barcelona squad, the sporting directors have been looking for many names that could fit into their transfer policy and Mohammed Kudus, the promising Ajax winger, was one of the most surprising names. After Ousmane Dembélé’s departure, the Catalans’ eyes fell on this Ghanaian footballer who has made his mark in the Eredivisie. However, although his signing was seen as a viable option to strengthen the attack, economic differences have meant that the Blaugrana dream is on hold.

At 23, Kudus has proven he is an explosive force on the pitch, a combination of speed, skill and a precise left foot that has earned him a spot in Ajax’s one-of-a-kind starting line-up. This winger is not only capable of making the difference with his runs, but also provides crucial goals and assists for his team. His meteoric rise has made him one of the most sought-after players in the Dutch league.

Although FC Barcelona and Ajax have fruitful cooperation in the transfer market, numbers were an insurmountable obstacle this time. The Blaugranas offered several options to acquire Kudus, including a deferred payment or a transfer with an option to buy, but the Dutch have valued the player at more than €40m, Sport newspaper reported. This has put Barça at a financial crossroads that hasn’t allowed any progress in the negotiations.

However, the illusion of having Kudus disguised as a Barcelona player could not be completely erased. Sources close to the club say that while his signing will not materialize this summer, the player’s environment will continue to be monitored for future appearances. FC Barcelona have had an open dialogue with the player and his squad, suggesting they could resume talks in the future.

The importance of the relationship between Ajax and Barça in the transfer market cannot be underestimated. Historical ties between the two clubs have resulted in successful transfers in the past and this interest in Kudus is further evidence of this collaboration. Barcelona’s philosophy of positional play finds an echo in the playing style of the Ajax school, making Kudus an attractive candidate to adapt to the Barça system.
