Reports from El Heraldo de Colombia indicate that Laporta has already initiated discussions with Carlos Van Strahlen, an intermediary representing the former Porto sensation. These discussions aimed to glean insights into the potential financial figures required to persuade Liverpool to part ways with the dynamic winger.

However, the momentum of negotiations hit an impasse when Laporta was confronted with Liverpool’s lofty valuation of Diaz at €140 million. Such a substantial asking price presents a considerable challenge for Barcelona, given the financial constraints plaguing the Catalan club.

With Barcelona navigating a challenging financial landscape, the feasibility of initiating negotiations at the current valuation appears bleak. Laporta and his team must carefully strategize their approach to secure Diaz’s services without jeopardizing the club’s fiscal stability.
