A report from Spain's "Daily Sport" declared that if Eric Garcia cannot be successfully signed back from Manchester City, another goal of Barcelona's defensive signings is Nunez of Athletic Bilbao.
Nunez, now 23, was previously thought to want to leave Athletic Bilbao on loan in order to seek more opportunities for the game, and in exchange, he will be willing to complete the renewal with the club.
Nunez has previously played on behalf of the Spanish national team once. His existing contract with Athletic Bilbao has been signed in 2023 with a penalty of 30 million euros.
According to the "Daily Sports", if Barcelona can't buy back Eric Garcia from Manchester City this summer, they may try to introduce Núñez on loan.
Last season, Nunez represented Athletic Bilbao in 26 official games, 22 of which were the starters.
