The English club is willing to pay a transfer fee if he ends up on the market

The future of Sergiño Dest in Barça hovers uncertainly. The American full-back seemed set to carry on in Barça, but as Xavi Hernández has warned the summer is very long, and a lot could change over August. The club could likely agree to his departure if Azpilicueta ends up signing, and Manchester United have already been interested in his situation and are willing to pay a transfer fee for his services. Barça would want at least 20 million euros on such a sale to add to their coffers.

Dest is a player who Ten Hag admires, as the fullback can play with posession and is very consistent with his style of football. Manchester United must still undertake several signings in every rank, and Dest is one of the targets they would like to have right now, as they have confirmed to Barça.

FC Barcelona is fully prepared to sell Dest if Azpilicueta arrives. Azpilicueta is a sure starter, and Xavi would also have another option both on the wing with Sergi Roberto and for central defenders with Koundé and Araujo. As for Dest, he has many offers and already last season had approaches from Bayern Munich, Chelsea, Atletico Madrid and Monaco. The American has always wanted to stay at FC Barcelona, but United is a tempting team and he feels that he will have less game-time at Barça.
