The FC Barcelona closed their qualification for the next edition of the UEFA Champions League after defeating Real Betis at the Benito Villamarín, which is good news for Xavi Hernández’s project for next season. The first complete of the new project. And, after fulfilling the objective, they have got down to work planning their squad for the coming campaign.
The club’s sports management and Joan Laporta have met with the intention of starting to work in the future and putting together a competitive squad to fight again for important titles. And, as reported Sports worldthe intention is to close six signings in the summer transfer market, which comes hand in hand with several important exits and take advantage of market opportunities.
The 6 signings in which FC Barcelona is working for the summer
-Franck Kessie: Is closed. He will arrive as a free agent after finishing his contract with AC Milan. A different profile for the midfield.
-Andreas Christensen: Is closed. He will arrive as a free agent after finishing his contract with Chelsea. One more piece for the rotation at the rear and that will facilitate the exit of names like Lenglet and Umtiti.
-A right side: César Azpilicueta is the main option due to his experience and current situation at Chelsea. Xavi likes him a lot and feels that he can bring a lot of leadership to the team. He can also play as a center back in a three line.
-One left side: Marcos Alonso is the one that sounds the most within the options that Laporta handles. He will not continue at Chelsea and his contract ends in 2023, so his starting price will not be too high.
-Other midfielder: The dream is Bernardo Silva, but it seems impossible due to the importance he has gained this season at FC Barcelona. They want a quality interior that can take the place that Frenkie de Jong could vacate.
-Center forward: Robert Lewandowski is the main target. They need a star in that area to be able to compete for the most important titles, they have more options but the Pole is the chosen one after Haaland.
