FC Barcelona is considering a move for Real Sociedad striker Alexander Isak. The Swedish forward is in good form for the Spanish club.
Alexander Isak joined Real Sociedad from Borussia Dortmund in 2019. In his 69 appearances for the club, he has scored 24 goals. This season he has scored 12 goals in the League in 20 appearances. Isak’s blistering pace, ability in air makes him one of the future star of world football.
The Covid-19 pandemic has already affected the economic condition of every sector of the world. The football world is not an exception. Some small clubs have already faced multiple crises. Now, some big clubs have also started to face the same situation. FC Barcelona is one of them.
Barcelona sold Luis Suarez, Arturo Vidal, Arthur Melo, Rafinha Alcantara, and Nelson Semedo last summer. But that was not enough.
FC Barcelona was interested in signing Kylian Mbappe or Erling Haaland next summer. But both of them will cost a world-record fee. However, it is not a good idea to go for a big-money signing in this financial crisis. So FC Barcelona is considering some other options as well. Alexander Isak is one of them.
Alexander Isak has a release clause of €70m at the Estadio Anoeta. The club is also trying to extend the contract of the striker. But he will surely leave the club if an offer comes from the side of FC Barcelona. The main barrier before FC Barcelona is Borussia Dortmund can come back in for the 21-year-old if Haaland leaves, with the Bundesliga giants having a €30m buy-back option on him.
