The Barca president seems to be very confident in shopping after having just completed a series of “financial leverage” for the club.
Barcelona have recently signed four new signings, including Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie. Players were added to the list just before the club’s opening match of the La Liga season against Rayo Vallecano at dawn on August 14. Jules Kounde is the only notable player absent after suffering an unfortunate injury. As a result, his registration is not prioritized by Laporta but will be completed in the next few days.
But that does not mean that the Barca president is done with this summer market. On the contrary, the Catalan “giant” still wants to buy more even after “closing orders” massively in recent times. They are looking for a new right-back in the context of Sergino Dest ‘s performance and development not being as expected by coach Xavi Hernandez.
According to journalist David Bernabeu Reverter, Barca are also keeping a close eye on Bernardo Silva . The Portuguese player is still Xavi’s top target this summer, because the Barca captain highly appreciates the Man City star. The Spaniard even considers Silva an ideal partner for Pedri in midfield, behind Sergio Busquets as the number 6 in the squad.
Barca continue to raise hopes of signing Silva this month. The price that Man City “screams” is up to 100 million euros , but president Laporta is determined to “close the deal” right next week to please Xavi. Many people question the level of risk of this deal, but Silva’s talent over the years is undisputed.
To make this deal more convenient, Barca accepted to let their midfield prodigy Nico Gonzalez leave on loan to Valencia. If successfully buying Silva, Laporta deserves to be praised as a “transfer witch” for turning Barca from a financially difficult club into a real king at the 2022 summer market.
After much effort and effort, Barcelona has finally successfully registered their summer rookies before the first round of La Liga season 2022/23 kicks off.
Thus, the long-awaited signatures of the Blaugrana like Franck Kessie, Andeas Christensen, Raphinha, Robert Lewandowski or two players who have just renewed their contracts like Ousmane Dembele and Sergi Roberto all have the opportunity to play in the first official match. in the new season of Barca.
However, there is still a bit of regret in the case of Jules Kounde when he has not yet appeared in the registration list. Therefore, in the near future, Barcelona is likely to accelerate the sale of names that no longer play an important role in the team such as Memphis Depay, Martin Braithwaite or Frenkie De Jong to continue to create a budget gap. .
In particular, a remarkable case is Miralem Pjanic, when he had almost no opportunity to express himself during his playing time at the Nou Camp. Therefore, there has been a lot of information showing that the former Juventus player is likely to leave Barca soon.
Speaking about the future of the Bosnian midfielder, coach Xavi Hernandez said: ” Miralem Pjanic will stay with us . He has convinced me and will continue to stick with Barca “.
