Barcelona coach Koeman dilemma as Sassuolo, Cadiz move for Manaj

Clubs are queuing for Barcelona striker Rej Manaj.

The Albania international has been in sensational preseason form for coach Ronald Koeman's senior team.

The Barca B striker now has enquiries arriving from Sassuolo, Cadiz and Famalicao, with offers of €3-5m being considered.

However, Sport says Koeman wants to delay a decision over the future of Manaj.

The Dutchman has been impressed by the striker, 24, and is seriously considering adding him to his squad this new season.

Manaj has enjoyed a superb preseason with Barca so far this summer, scoring four goals in two games. The striker struck a spectacular hat-trick against Nastic, which included chesting home one goal similar to Rai's famous effort.

Manaj was signed by Barca in January 2020 from Albacete, having previously been with Inter Milan.

Last season with Barca B, Albania international Manaj scored 14 goals in 24 games.
