At 19, Konrad De la Fuente is one of the great promises of American football. However, his present is not the one he wants. It is that Ronald Koeman will not take it into account for the following season in Barcelona, so he's in the transfer market waiting for an offer that will seduce him.

In this sense, according to what RAC1 reports, the young American is closely followed by Olympique Marsella, a team coached by Argentine Jorge Sampaoli and who wants to be a protagonist again in Ligue 1.

The arrival of Sergio Agüero, plus the possible arrival of Memphis Depay mean that De la Fuente doesn't have a guaranteed place to have important minutes in the Bsrcelona first team. It must be remembered that Konrad barely counted this season of minutes by Koeman, being the player least used by the Dutch coach, with 36 minutes, surpassing only the Brazilian Matheus Fernandes (17 minutes).

How much is Konrad De la Fuente worth?

In principle, according to RAC1, the most viable option is his departure to Olympique Marseille, although it has yet to be assessed whether it is a transfer with a mandatory purchase clause or directly a transfer. In the event that Barcelona definitively part with De la Fuente, Olympique Marsella will have to pay 5 million euros, which is the value.

Barcelona prepares more departures from its squad

After Konrad, according to what Mundo Deportivo publishes, the Danish Martin Braithwaite is next on the starting grid to leave the club. A special case is that of Ousmane Dembélé, who would only be looked for a team if the forward refuses to accept a downward renewal.
