Laporta doesn’t care about the club’s economic crisis and the bickering on social networks: he wants to end the transfer market with a coup
The Barca president is a show genius and after signing Gündogan, Iñigo Martínez, Vitor Roque and Oriol Romeu Laporta prepares one last big surprise for FC Barcelona. The Barca president knows there is a good team to fight for any title and is ready to risk anything. You need a world cracker for that. A player who decides games.
In that sense, there is one player that Xavi Hernández really likes. A player who would increase the competition in midfield and strengthen one of the positions that worries the Barca coach the most. It’s possible that Laporta will meet the Barcelona manager’s requirements, but if he doesn’t meet them, he will sign whoever is needed.
Laporta wants a world star at FC Barcelona, whoever that is
As we have known in the past few days, Laporta is ready to pull a new lever. It would be a very risky option as it would further jeopardize the club’s future. However, by pulling that lever, FC Barcelona could seek the signing of a world elite footballer.
How can it be otherwise The player that FC Barcelona likes is Bernardo Silva. The 28-year-old Portuguese footballer is in the best moment of his career, having just won the Champions League with Manchester City. A title in which he was instrumental, leading the team at key stages of the tournament.
Laporta overtakes Xavi Olympic
For his part Bernardo Silva has already publicly recognized that FC Barcelona are among the teams that attract him. But signing Bernardo Silva is practically impossible at this point in the summer. A club like Manchester City will not allow one of their stars to have so little time to find relief.
And here comes the confrontation between Laporta and Xavi over the signings of FC Barcelona. Xavi wants an option that offers control, like Lo Celso and a winger, should Bernardo not come. But Laporta needs that coup de effect. And if it’s not Bernardo Silva, it will be Neymar or Joao Félix, players Xavi doesn’t see in the team.
