While FC Barcelona is still looking for a scorer, the name of Cédric Bakambu has circulated in Catalonia. An interest mentioned by the main interested party.
In this month of January, the priority of recruiting FC Barcelona is to strengthen in attack. For this, Joan Laporta took out the checkbook to recruit Ferran Torres to Manchester City , for a € 55M + € 10M bonus. But a real goalscorer would still be sought after by the Blaugrana. While the priority would be called Alvaro Morata, bringing in the current Juventus player seems very complicated. What therefore forced Barça to study other possibilities and for that, the name of Cédric Bakambu in particular circulated.
Since leaving China, Cédric Bakambu is now free. Passed by Sochaux , the Congolese striker could then make his return to La Liga, he who totally exploded in Villarreal . And in an interview with Footmercato, Bakambu Responded to Barca's interest, explaining: “Of course it's flattering to be associated with Barca. Now, it's not an end in itself, I take it as a source of motivation, it pushes me to perform. It proves that my work in China paid off. Despite the fact that I went into exile on the other side of the planet, the European teams still think of Cédric Bakambu and, for me, it is the fruit of the work done, let's put it that way “. Afterwards, Bakambu also said more about his future, confident: “Today, I prefer the sporting challenge, we are not going to lie to each other. I traveled a lot, I made a good living, I gained a lot of experience. There, I am looking for a purely sporting project, here in Europe. (…) I attach a lot of importance to relationships, it is important. I want to feel wanted by the management, but above all by the technical staff. We know very well that in a group, the advice of the coach is essential. This is clearly what I am looking for with the sporting challenge. Today, I'm a little more open let's say and we'll see “.
