Barcelona Continues Its Hunt for Exceptional Talent, With a Focus on Homegrown Prospects: Savio on Their Radar”
As part of their ongoing efforts to assemble a top-notch squad, Barcelona has a knack for scouting talent close to home. This approach was evident during the summer transfer window with the acquisitions of Oriol Romeu and Joao Felix, and it seems that in 2024, they may follow a similar strategy.
Reported by Gol (via Sport), Barcelona has set its sights on the promising talent of Savio, who is currently making waves at local rivals Girona. The young Brazilian has been in remarkable form this season, backed by compelling statistics that attest to his prowess on the field. Notably, Savio is on loan at Girona from the French club ESTAC Troyes, which conveniently falls under the City Group umbrella. This arrangement would spare Barcelona the complexities of negotiating with their local rivals, as they encountered during the summer transfer window when pursuing Oriol Romeu.
Savio’s potential addition to the squad could align with the role currently occupied by Joao Felix at Barcelona, especially if the Portuguese star does not secure a permanent transfer from Atletico Madrid. What makes this prospect even more enticing for Barcelona is the likelihood of an economically feasible deal, which should undoubtedly pique the interest of the Catalan giants.
