Manchester United offers €30 million for Fermín López

Fermín López is one of the jewels of FC Barcelona, a youth player who has earned a place in the first team with great effort. The club needs some sales to square the accounts, but not that of the midfielder from El Campillo, unless an offer arrives that is completely irresistible.

On ‘La Posesión’, the program broadcast on every Monday, it has been reported that Manchester United knocked on the door of the Blaugrana club to discuss the signing of Fermín López. The ‘Red Devils’, where the Dutchman Erik ten Hag will continue at the helm despite a disappointing season, are looking for midfielders with Fermín’s characteristics, players with technical quality and, above all, with a lot of arrival.

Manchester United offered 30 million euros for the player from El Campillo, but were met with the refusal of FC Barcelona, who responded practically with a smile. This is the first offer that the Blaugrana club has received for the footballer.

But the club does not consider it an offer of the right level. In addition to the fact that FC Barcelona has no intention of transferring one of the team’s most promising players – he is 21 years old and has a more than promising career – the offer is considered totally insufficient for the Blaugrana entity.

Rising valuation

The truth is that Fermín has revalued himself practically from zero in a dizzying season and his current market value, which is offered by the German portal Transfermarkt according to a series of parameters, is, curiously, 30 million euros, the same amount proposed by Manchester United.

Although this is his current valuation, the Blaugrana club is very clear that Fermín López’s trajectory is upward and that the player from Huelva will continue to multiply his value. For this reason, they are not considering the offer from Manchester United, who, if they want Fermín, will have to ‘stretch’ much more. Only an ‘outrage’ in the form of an offer would change his situation as untransferable.

In his first season in the elite, Fermín has already become an important and decisive player, a footballer who gives his all and gives everything in matches. Xavi Hernández was the one who propelled his career, because when he returned from his loan spell at Linares, at most he was expected to play for the Blaugrana reserve team. But the Egarense took him on the North American tour and the player from El Campillo responded to his confidence with a goal in the Dallas Clásico.

In official competitions, Fermín López has scored 11 goals in 42 games. Real Madrid was, once again, another of his ‘victims’, and with an iconic celebration at the Santiago Bernabéu.

A performance that has led him to make his debut for the Spanish national team and to be present at the European Championship. Without minutes in the Red’s debut match against Croatia, he hopes to have his chance this Thursday.

Rafa Márquez set him as an example

Fermín is a mirror for the players of La Masia who, despite their efforts, see the option of reaching the first team one day as an uphill battle. The player from El Campillo has shown that success can be achieved through other paths, in this case, the loan spell, and the coach of Barça Atlètic, Rafa Márquez, wanted to set him as an example after the draw against Córdoba (1-1), when he referred to the future of his players.
