Manaj is wanted in Italy, but Barcelona does not lend him
Thanks to the good performances he has made with Barcelona B in recent months, but also with the Albanian national team, Rey Manaj has aroused the interest of Italian clubs which seek to return the red and black bomber to Italy, where he took his first steps as a footballer and where became famous with the Inter jersey.
According to Italian media, Crotone in Serie A and Pescara in Serie B, with whom the striker has played in the past, are the two clubs that are ready to approach the red and black striker. The latter is playing regularly again with the second team of Barcelona, ??but being in the third Spanish category, finds it difficult to properly show his values, so he is open to a possible return to Italian football.
But in the meantime, what becomes an obstacle is Barcelona. The Catalans, on the one hand, do not want to leave the Albanian footballer because their plan to take the second team to La Liga 2 was not successful. On the other hand, they do not want to let him go on loan, but to recoup some of the money they spent on him by buying him from Albacete. For this reason, both Italian clubs have received negative responses to the loan, making it clear that Manaj can only leave as a final transfer, paying his card for a value that the club estimates at around 2 million euros, so how much they spent to buy it. Rey Manaj from the moment that the coach Edy Reja became part of the Albanian national team has been a fixed starter even for the red and blacks, scoring several goals with weight.
