Barcelona Considering Shock Bid For Southampton’s Right-Back Cedric Soares
Barcelona are eyeing a shock move for Southampton right-back Cedric Soares in the summer transfer window, The Telegraph reports.
The Catalan side have struggled to find a suitable replacement since Dani Alves departed, with the Euro 2016 winner said to fit in with the Barcelona style.
Sergi Roberto is yet to stake his claim as a bona-fide successor to Alves, and the Daily Telegraph reports that Cedric has been included on Barca’s shortlist of potential replacements.
The 25-year-old joined Southampton for less than £5m in 2015 and last summer signed a new contract that keeps him at the club until 2020 having helped Portugal to Euro 2016 glory.
The Saints are unlikely to consider bids of less than £15m, with uncertainty already surrounding the futures of in-demand defensive duo Virgil van Dijk and Ryan Bertrand.
