Barcela want a reunion with former La Masia player

Dani Olmo has taken a different path to the top of world football. After leaving Barcelona’s academy for the Croatian big club Dinamo Kiev in his teens, he has through Dinamo gone to RB Leipzig and then get a call up to the Spanish national team.

But now a return to Barcelona may be underway. According to the German newspaper Sport Bild, the Spanish big club is interested in recruiting the now 23-year-old Olmo. This will be a loan for the rest of the season, which can cost up to ten million euros, and then lead to a mandatory purchase of the midfielder for 60 million euros.

Olmo has missed part of the season due to a muscle injury, which he is currently working on coming back from. So far, there have been three appearances for Leipzig this year, where he was noted for an assist.

Manchester United and Manchester City are also said to be interested in Olmo.
