O Globo claim that scouts from the Spanish club were at Goodison Park to watch the 22-year-old score against Chelsea and Manchester United while Barça representatives also ran the rule over him on international duty in games against Cameroon, Panama and the Czech Republic.
The report says that they have also approached both his agent and Everton to sound out the possibility of doing a deal but it's likely that the Blues will want around £80m to £90m for him if they are interested in selling.
Meanwhile, The Mirror are saying that Paris St Germain and Atletico Madrid want Richarlison and are set for a summer "tug of war" for him.

So there we have it, who'd have thought, you can be a buyer anda seller and why not, you can't have one without the other.
Its the Brands business model, £45M outlay, £90M cash in, buy cheap, sell dear, business 101.
The real trick is to have the cheap replacement lined up.
Like it or not, baring it going all Mike Walker-ish, we're going to have to let our 3 'M's run with this method for a season or three, because as Spurs and Arsenal before them have found - New Stadiums and spare cash do not go hand in hand.

However, if Barca want a player they normally get him - Id hope hed demand more than the few they paid for Dembele though given his record in this league, so well over €130m

Everything changes, especially in football. Barcelona had their arses seriously kicked by that lot over the road and were probably a tad lucky to be leading 3 nil anyway. Pressing with high energy players seems to be the way forward and Richarlison ticks both those boxes, hence the gossip about Klipperty showing interest.
I could see this working with Gomes coming this way plus lots of cash.
For me it's Gueye that's going to hurt the blues far more than losing Richarlison.

Gueye would be a big miss, but so would Luca Digne, even if he was part of a swap deal involving Danny Rose!
Richarlson has got to stay, but if he cant, then Everton, would have to demand the same type of fee that Barca paid Liverpool for Coutiniho, and a bit more on top.
We say it every year, but this summer is the big one as far as Im concerned, and I think we will have a much clearer view of the direction the club wants to take, when its over?
8 Posted 12/05/2019 at 10:19:25
If we get Rose for Digne, though, we might as well give up. That has to be bollocks.

On purely business terms a great deal but wed obviously need an idea of a replacement and if the deal happens early everyone will know weve chased in and try to relieve us as a much of our new found cash as possible.
On another note, shame there are no stories linking us with Mitrovic. If Southampton get him for £30m that would be an absolute steal. The guy is big aggressive and a proven goal scorer. Exactly what were crying out for. £30m when we coughed up £27m for Tosun is just ridiculous.

Echo also saying we have opened talks with Barcelona for Gomes, so still hope ?
If we flipped Richarlison for 90m that is quite a profit within a year but we'll struggle to find better.
It's good that there is interest in our players however - if there wasn't we'd be in a worse position.

Wouldn't Mrs. Digne prefer the grand life in the North West (big house, big garden, countryside, nice environment to raise their newly born) than the hovel that is London ?
Traveling down (from Liverpool) to London last Tuesday I was sat in front of an Evertonian who was clearly a football agent or scout / club official on his way to a meeting with "Matt". Grimes from Swansea ? DM so I understand if so who's out ? Understandably Gueye has caught the eye of a few mega clubs but unless we intend to replace him with Ndidi (or Choudhury ?)I feel that we need to keep him.

He's young, scores goals and he's Brazilian, his value is only going one way. If we do have to sell, then we need to take the stance them shits across the park took with Courtinho.
