Barcelona plot shock £35m transfer for Tottenham flop Juan Foyth after stunning career turnaround at Villarreal | The Sun

BARCELONA are lining up a shock transfer offer for Tottenham flop Juan Foyth.

Foyth, 24, never truly found his feet while at Spurs and was subsequently shipped out to Villarreal after an unsuccessful three-year stint in North London.


The defender's move to La Liga was initially only a loan move, but his impressive performances at Villarreal in his first season convinced them to sanction a £13million transfer for him last summer.

His first season with Unai Emery at the Yellow Submarine actually ended with a victory in the Europa League final against Manchester United – the club's first ever trophy.

And now following his success Spanish giants Barcelona are now plotting a move, according to Mundo Deportivo.

However, Villarreal will not allow the defender to leave unless his £35m release clause is met.

The Bluagrana missed out on Chelsea's Cesar Azpilicueta after he signed a new two-year deal at Chelsea to fill their right-back spot.

Xavi's side will reportedly allow Sergino Dest to leave the club in a deal worth £17m, with Manchester United and Chelsea said to be interested.

Currently, central defender Ronald Aruajo is the preferred option at right-back but the club are understood to have a list of more natural options who they can bring in.

Among these are Arsenal's Hector Bellerin and Borussia Dortmund's Meunier.
