The coming week will be crucial at the Camp Nou as Barcelona look to complete a key signing or two before the transfer market closes. Despite time being short, the Catalan club are determined to achieve their goals and one of them is the long-awaited signing of Joao Félix.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta recently expressed the club’s desire to see arrivals and departures in the final days of the market. This means the management team led by Deco has a lot of work to do and very little time to finalize negotiations as the market closes at 11:59pm on August 1st, a day later than usual due to an agreement on Die major European leagues.
Barcelona won’t give up on their goal of signing Joao Félix
According to SPORT newspaper, Barcelona expect to receive the outstanding money from the German Libero football fund before the deadline, which will allow for the registration of Joao Cancelo and Íñigo Martínez, the latter not yet registered in La Liga. Cancelo, the Portuguese winger, is awaiting travel authorization as he has been awaiting approval in his country since last Thursday.
With those issues resolved, Barcelona will focus on their next target: Joao Félix, the talented Atlético Madrid striker. Felix expressed his desire to join Barcelona at the start of the season and is willing to wait until the last minute for the deal to go through.
However, Joao Félix’s arrival will depend on the departure of some Barcelona players, including Clément Lenglet, Abde, Marcos Alonso and possibly Eric García. Although Ansu Fati’s situation is also mentioned, his participation was limited early in the season.
The next few hours at the Camp Nou will be crucial as Barcelona look to balance their squad and achieve their transfer goals before the transfer window closes. Barcelona fans are excited to see if Joao Félix will finally wear the Blaugrana shirt this season.
