Chelsea urged to sign defender last summer, now valued at £855m

Pau Cubarsi, the 17-year-old Barcelona starlet, has made a breakthrough into the Barcelona team this season. Chelsea’s interest in Cubarsi may be hindered by his release clause, which is set to increase to a massive £855million. This significant rise in his release clause puts the player out of reach for a moderate fee, as it was previously valued at £13m. Barca’s move to extend his contract until 2026 and raise his release clause was confirmed by transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

The final details of the agreement are being sorted out with an official announcement expected in the coming weeks. Deco, a former Barca player and now the sporting director of the club, has emphasized the development of young talent and has played a key role in convincing Xavi to continue as the manager. This indicates Deco’s high regard for Cubarsi, who made his debut in the Copa Del Rey in January at the age of 16 and has made significant strides in his career since then. Chelsea’s summer spending may already be limited, and their failure to qualify for the Champions League next season adds further financial constraints.
