Transfer window Mikayil Faye : Senegal and Barcelona youngster heading to FC Porto

Senegal centre-back Mikayil Faye will probably leave La Liga giants FC Barcelona this summer as FC Porto continue to push for his signing.

The 19-year is considered as one of the most talented players in FC Barcelona’s youth side.

Mikayil Faye is not only a very good defender but has the capacity to drive the ball forward and contribute in goal scoring as he did on his Senegal debut against Gabon in a friendly game in March.

However, he is yet to play a single game with Barcelona first team and the Teranga Lion is seriously considering leaving the club.

According to Fabrizio Romano, the Portuguese side sent Barcelona a €15m bid to sign the defender and are waiting for the Spanish club’s answer as they prepare a huge offer for the player himself.

Before letting on their young talent, the Blaugranas want to discuss a buy back clause which will allow them to sign back the Mikayil Faye in the future should he continue progressing. Once an agreement is reached in that side, the deal can be done.
