In the absence of a week to complete the transfer period, the Barça club continues to work to release several players and signings could also arrive
There is only one week left to reach the end of the transfer market and FC Barcelona still has work ahead to close the squad. There are several players who can leave the club, but new signings could also arrive to make a dream team.
The Gabonese (33 years old) is Chelsea’s priority objective in this final stretch of the market. The striker’s agents are acting as intermediaries and hope to close the deal soon, although there is still no firm offer. Barça aspires to obtain at least 15 million fixed for a player who arrived for free in February.
The Dutchman (28 years old) had advanced his departure to Juventus, but in recent days the operation has cooled down. The striker must reach an agreement with Barça to free himself from his last year of a contract before signing for Juve and there are still some differences.
The American (21 years old) is not part of Xavi’s plans, who left him out of the squad for the first two league games. There are no specific offers for the side, but it is speculated that Manchester United could try to sign him for an affordable price.
The Dane (31 years old) does not fit into Xavi’s schemes either and he does not have a shirt number at Barça for this season. Mallorca was emerging as his destiny, but the striker’s high salary claims would have paralyzed his departure. He has two years left on his contract.
The Frenchman (23 years old) is waiting for there to be departures in the squad in order to be registered in LaLiga. The center-back played the entire game against Manchester City to start filming and be ready for when he can make his debut in an official game.
Barça is tracking the market to sign a left-back to compete with Jordi Alba. Marcos Alonso (31 years old, Chelsea) seemed the chosen one, but Balde’s good performance could have caused a change of plans. Javi Galán (27 years old, Celta) is another of the alternatives.
Strengthening the right lane of Barça’s defense is also on the agenda. Juan Foyth (24 years old, Villarreal) is the favorite, but his high price complicates his signing. Thomas Meunier (30 years old, Borussia Dortmund) and Héctor Bellerín (27 years old, Arsenal) are other candidates.
A ‘low-cost’ striker?
In the event that Aubameyang and Memphis leave, Barça could go to the market to find a cheap striker and assume the role of substitute, as happened last year with Luuk de Jong. Xavi did not rule out this option in the previous one against Real Sociedad.
