Strange transfer posse: top club agrees with Eintracht star – but change is far from fixed

Going into the last year of the contract with a top performer is always critical for the club. Eintracht should also feel that

Frankfurt am Main/Barcelona – In the football business, it has become more and more common in recent years to let your existing contract with your current employer expire before you devote yourself to more ambitious goals. The same seems Evan N’dicka (23) with the Frankfurt unity to practice – and already seems to have a firm goal in mind.

As the sports news portal Sport1 reported late Monday evening, none other than the top Spanish club FC Barcelona have been dealing with the young Frenchman since the beginning of the calendar year – and have now even reached an agreement with the player.

Does that mean at the same time that N’dicka is just rewinding his time in Frankfurt and only counting the days until he moves to the Catalan capital? Rather not! Because, as Sport1 claims to have learned from a reliable source, Barça should still look around the market and continue to explore the situation.

However, there was a special agreement between the two sides, which required a decision by “Blaugrana” by the end of March at the latest. Otherwise, N’dicka should also keep an eye out for a potential buyer.

There have been a few of them in the past – at least in speculative terms: AC Milan had shown serious interest in the Adlerträger’s ace defender even before the start of the season.

In the meantime, city rivals Inter could also be considered as a new employer for the 23-year-old.

Despite all the frustration on the part of Eintracht fans, a transfer to a top club would be a deserved reward for N’dicka’s career, who moved from AJ Auxerre to Stadtwald in 2016 at the age of just 18 and has since played 168 competitive games for Hessen.

In view of the prevailing transfer posse around the young French defense chief of the Diva from Main, there were of course – admittedly – overly optimistic voices that still believe in a contract extension.

The fact that N’dicka will leave the SGE at the end of the season regardless of the outcome (in the direction of a top club) is almost set in stone.
