The zero cost signing that escaped Barcelona

The defender was of interest to the Catalans but they were never going to match Bayern's wages

Barcelona are combing the market for low cost signings, zero in the cases of Kessie and Christensen. On the agenda was Ajax’s right back Mazraoui, but he has taken his Bayern Munich medical already, according to Bild.

There were conversations but the Moroccan seems like he’s going to Germany. They bet on him from the start, knowing he has a lot of potential at 24 years old.

With Barcelona sniffing around Bayern intensified their negotiations to close the deal as soon as possible and in the coming days can get his signature.

They are said to be offering him over 10m euros gross per season, which Barcelona wouldn’t get near. 

Mazraoui will battle with Pavard for a spot as Bayern’s right back.
