Barca transfer news: Barcelona eye 30M rated RB Leipzig World Class defender

Barcelona are interested in RB Leipzig Centre back Ibrahima Konate who is valued at €25M-€30M, to help stable the team's leaky defence and replace the potential outgoing Samuel Umtiti.

📰 [AS🥈] | 21-year-old Leipzig center-back Ibrahima Konaté is on the agenda of both Real Madrid and Barcelona, and his price could range from €25 million to €30 million.

Konate would be a great addition to the squad, his experience and ability is exactly what the Blaugrana's defence lacked in recent years. Samuel Umtiti was the man who delivered consistent solid displays at the back, but since his long term injury after the 2018 mundial (world cup), the Frenchman has been out of form and now a liability at the club..

The negative side of the player in question (Ibrahim Konate) is his proneness to injury. The Frenchman has suffered 8 different injuries in the last 4 seasons, an average of 2 injuries per season.

With the Possible arrival of Eric Garcia from Man City and Bayern star David Alaba, both on a free transfer, Barcelona might just over look Ibrahima Konate, and spend the suppose €30M on another position, preferably the attacking department.
