Rey Manaj has been a surprise package this pre-season. The club have faith in his goalscoring abilities, and feel that his departure could benefit the club going forward. The Albanian striker will leave Camp Nou this summer and he has various offers on the table.
According to Israeli media outlet '1one', Maccabi de Tel Aviv have bid €1.5 million for 50% ownership rights. Negotiations have been going on for several weeks, but the player is currently assessing other options.
Serie A side Sassuolo are also interested in signing the player, while Cádiz would like to take the player on loan with an option to buy. Two clubs from the Portuguese league are also understood to have enquired about the player.
Barça's priority, however, is to sell the player in a deal which includes a sell-on fee or a buy-back clause. While both club and player are understood to prefer a transfer to Sassuolo, the offer from Maccabi de Tel Aviv is a tempting one. While his destination remains unclear, he will not remain at Camp Nou beyond this transfer window.
