Barça director Jordi Cruyff has confirmed that La Liga giants are considering a move for Ghana star Mohammed Kudus who has taken the 2022 FIFA World Cup by storm.
A report by Goal.com also claims European heavyweights Real Madrid are also monitoring the performance of the 22-year-old at the tournament. Los Blancos have a track record of signing players who shine at the FIFA World Cup. Ronaldo (2002), Fabio Cannavaro (2006), Mesut Ozil (2010), James Rodriguez (2014), and Thibaut Courtois (2018) all joined the 35-time La Liga champions after enjoying successful World Cups.
Liverpool have already sent scouts to monitor the performance of the former Right to Dream Academy graduate while Manchester United and Chelsea are also reportedly interested.
Kudus attempted to force a move to Everton during the summer transfer window but the deal couldn’t materialise.
He has scored 2 goals and provided 1 assist for the Black Stars at the ongoing World Cup in Qatar and has also picked up one MVP award.
