Noussair Mazraoui wants to join Barcelona.
Noussair Mazraoui wants to put an end to his dissatisfaction with Bayern Munich, according to a report by the Spanish outlet Mundo Deportivo. The 25-year-old is eager to leave the Bundesliga team during the summer transfer window. And he is eager to sign with Barcelona before the 2023–24 season.
Since leaving Ajax as a free agent and joining Bayern Munich last summer, Noussair Mazraoui has had a challenging season. When a Bosman move was required, the Moroccan international had some options available to him. And before the 2022–23 season, he decided to continue his fledgling career in the Bundesliga.
However, Mazraoui’s choice has not been successful as he has struggled to establish himself as a regular for Bayern Munich. With just 14 games started across all competitions, the 25-year-old has yet to establish his dominance. And a number of prestigious clubs, including Barcelona, have taken notice of his frustrations.
Mazraoui was a free agent last summer, and Barcelona tried to hire him because of the limited resources at Camp Nou. However, the transfer did not take place because the player opted to join Bayern Munich. Despite his struggles in the Bundesliga, Barcelona still has interest in the 25-year-old.
Although the 25-year-old full-back won’t show up this time in a Bosman move, his cost might not be excessive. Barcelona can also raise the necessary funds by offloading a few players. The upcoming departure of Sergio Busquets will also help reduce the wage bill. Therefore, Mazraoui’s arrival could be imminent.
The international Moroccan player, who can play on either flank, is eager to join Barcelona. Should he decide to leave Bayern Munich this summer, he is prepared to push for a transfer to Spotify Camp Nou. But according to recent reports, the Bundesliga champions are unwilling to consider any offers for him.
Mazraoui’s removal from the Allianz Arena will be a difficult task for Barcelona to accomplish. It will be interesting to see if the 25-year-old submits a transfer request to Bayern Munich in order to join Barcelona this summer.
