The French team, one of the suitors of The flea, would be willing to spend just over USD 30 million to buy 100 percent of the token of Emerson Royal. The Brazilian side, emerged from black Bridge that shone on Atlético Mineiro, belongs to the Barça team but has not even played a game at the Camp Nou yet.
