FC Barcelona is on all fronts. Camp Nou residents are working hard to provide Xavi with a competitive team.
Ilkay Gündogan and Iñigo Martinez have already signed. Vitor Roque also.
But Brazilian crack cocaine will not arrive until 2024. The Culés are still waiting for reinforcements for this summer. Oriol Romeu has a good chance of being next.
A right-back, who could be João Cancelo, will also be recruited by the Blaugranas, reports Footmercato.
Players to take off before the summer tour
But Spanish champions must manage an XXL degreasing operation in parallel.
Selling players is imperative for Catalans, who have financial worries.
The idea is also that Xavi doesn’t end up with too large a group.
After Umtiti left Catalonia, which terminated his contract, the Catalans are working on other departures. Three things should go relatively quickly.
The plan would be to part company before the start of next week’s US tour.
Barça don’t want to let players train alone while the main group is gone. That is certainly what Sport said on Friday. Alex Collado and Clément Lenglet will be the first to be sacrificed.
The Frenchman should go back to Tottenham. Details are yet to be worked out, but Spurs are hard at work. It’s the Culés priority.
