FC Barcelona left the football world speechless with a spectacular performance in the Dallas classic, where they prevailed with a convincing score of 3-0 over their eternal rival, Real Madrid. The azulgranas shone on the pitch, leaving Ousmane Dembélé, Pedri and young youth squad Fermín López as outstanding players.
Despite the great victory and the euphoria produced by the culé fans, Xavi Hernández was aware that the team still has room for improvement. In statements in the mixed zone, the Terrassa coach stressed that the sports management and the president are aware of the need to reinforce the team before the market closes, scheduled for August 31.
Two clear positions to reinforce
The coach is clear about what he is looking for in the transfer market: an interior with goalscoring capacity that can be complemented by the strikers, and the name of Bernardo Silva has sounded strongly as his favourite. In addition, Xavi has his sights set on reinforcing the right-back position, since Sergiño Dest could leave the club and there is a lack of a specialist in that area. Jules Koundé and Sergi Roberto appear as the main candidates, although Xavi prefers a player with experience to ensure immediate performance.
The challenge for FC Barcelona is to maintain the level displayed in the Dallas classic and achieve maximum performance to be able to fight for all the titles next season. With the intention of achieving this, Xavi and the club are working hard to get the necessary reinforcements to strengthen the squad and increase the chances of success.
