In the group stage of the Champions League in autumn 2021, Borussia Dortmund experienced two games to forget. Within just two weeks, BVB was chased through the stadium twice by Ajax Amsterdam. On the Dutch side, Noussair Mazraoui celebrated the two victories, which played a large part in the fact that the Bundesliga club missed the round of 16. Apparently reason enough for Borussia to want Mazraoui in their own ranks. However, the competition is said to be enormous.
After the “image” and the “Ruhr news” recently fueled rumors about BVB’s interest in Ajax defender Noussair Mazraoui, brings “Mundo Deportivo” from Spain brought the Moroccan international into play at FC Barcelona.
Accordingly, Barca are following the right-back’s situation very closely. Especially since the 24-year-old is free in the summer and therefore fits perfectly into the loot scheme of the financially stricken Catalans.
Does the good connection to Raiola help BVB?
Like BVB star striker Erling Haaland, Mazraoui is advised by Mino Raiola. A circumstance that could definitely be an advantage for Borussia. The top consultant and BVB managing director Hans-Joachim Watzke is now connected by a friendship. “We had a fight, a really big fight. But we still respect each other. Why shouldn’t we be allowed to fight? I would even call Watzke a great friend. And I don’t say that often,” Raiola revealed in December 2021 in an interview with “Sport1 “.
However, when a big name like Barca comes knocking, Mazraoui shouldn’t be averse either. Especially since the Blaugrana make no secret of the fact that after the deep fall in the summer, which culminated in the departure of superstar Lionel Messi, they are already working at full speed on a change.
President Joan Laporta announced in January, less than six months after the announcement that the coffers were completely empty, that the company was back on the market “as a big player”. You will even get involved in poker for super striker Haaland. Among other things, a new mega deal should make this possible.
