Barcelona starlet Munir El Haddadi is waiting to receive an offer from Tottenham Hotspur as the 20-year-old forward knows that his short-term future lies away from the Nou Camp, according to Sport. Everton, Stoke City, Valencia, Celta Vigo and Real Sociedad are also monitoring the situation but the Spanish publication claims that he could make a "surprising move" to White Hart Lane instead.
Munir committed himself to the La Liga giants only last month after signing a new deal until 2019, setting his release clause at €60m (£51.7m, $67.7m). However, his future at Barcelona has been under scrutiny in recent days as manager Luis Enrique is expected to add a new forward as back-up to Lionel Messi, Luis Suarez and Neymar before the end of the transfer window.
Recent reports in Spain claimed that Barcelona met with Munir to inform him that he may need to leave the club to secure playing time. Yet, the Catalans still have faith in his long-term future at the Nou Camp and are likely to see him moving on loan or by including a buy-back option in a potential transfer.
However, they are also open to let him go somewhere else for only €15m should the suitors agree to include a buy-back clause in the deal. Celta and Valencia have been linked with such a move in recent days but Sport claims that the emergence of Tottenham in the race could see the Spanish starlet moving to the Premier League instead.
The Spanish publication add that Tottenham are yet to make any formal offer but are "seriously considering his signing in what could be one of the latest surprises of the transfer window".
Mauricio Pochettino, according to the report, wants to add another versatile forward to his squad and consider that the availability of Munir could be a good transfer opportunity for Spurs. However, Sport believes that the stumbling block in Munir potential move to White Hart Lane is that Tottenham are not likely to include a buy-back option in the transfer. The report pointed out that Spurs failed to sign Sandro Ramirez in the past due to the same issue.
Meanwhile, Sport add that Everton and Stoke are also monitoring the situation but consider the €15m demanded by Barcelona too high.
