The 24-year-old Portuguese youth international has turned heads while playing for Benfica and many tip him for a jump to the next level.
Barcelona are still looking for a replacement for Sergio Busquets, as Oriol Romeu, who was brought in as a cheap replacement, has not covered the hole fully.
The problem is a lack of funds to make the transfers happen. And Luís won’t come cheap; his release clause is set at 120 million euro.
However, the Catalans think he’d be available for around 40 million. Even then, that’s not a cheap price for that kind of player. Therefore, it’s understood that the most likely scenario is that Barcelona will keep scouring the market for a more affordable option.
