Spain, RB Leipzig: the very hot summer that awaits Dani Olmo


By: Manu Tournoux

Among our Spanish friends, we have, logically, talked a lot about the gems Lamine Yamal or Pau Cubarsí during this international break. Adolescents already performing at the highest level; Obviously, it’s not commonplace. But if there is a player who has emerged even stronger from this break of selections, it is Dani Olmo. While this very young Roja still lacks certainties and real leaders, the Leipzig star is present in every match he plays with La Roja. Against Brazil on Tuesday evening, he delivered a real exhibition.

Used to playing on a wing in the selection in recent years, the player trained at Barça is in the process of changing roles. He now plays in a register very close to number 10, alongside two other midfielders – Rodri and Fabian Ruiz against Brazil – with a lot of freedom. He is the only player who can move wherever he wants on the field and who has carte blanche to do whatever he wants. Endowed with superb technical quality and superior vision of the game, he does very poorly between the lines. And above all, he is a player capable of scoring, and not just a little.

A big transfer this summer?

Also brilliant with his club, RB Leizpig, and despite some physical problems in recent months, the 25-year-old attacking midfielder risks experiencing a turbulent summer. Already coveted by the biggest European clubs last summer, the best teams of the Old Continent risk returning to the charge after the Euro. It must be said that it may be available at a relatively affordable price… As indicated Sport, during his extension last summer, he negotiated a release clause of 60 million euros. A substantial amount, certainly, but not excessive given the prices charged on the market today.

Especially since his rating risks rising depending on his performances with Spain on German soil. As the Catalan media explains, FC Barcelona remains very interested, but inevitably, it will be complicated to repatriate the player given the financial situation of the Blaugranas. On the other hand, Olmo is also very coveted in the Premier League, where money will not be a problem. To be continued…
