That doesn’t seem right to me. I don’t think Barcelona are in a position to spend big transfer fees right now.
There are many other clubs that want Jeremy, although I am not allowed to say anything about that.
He can say, ‘wait and see’. I don’t think he wants to change yet, but in football, everything can change quickly. It depends on which team is interested.
