Barcelona are hoping to strengthen their squad this summer as they want to take back the La Liga title from their rival Real Madrid. The Spanish giants sold 10 percent of their La Liga TV rights to sixth street in other to get 207.5 million Euros. They will likely want to seal most of their summer transfer as soon as possible so that they could start to integrate into their playing style. The image below shows how Barcelona could lineup with their new signings and summer targets.
Barcelona’s Possible Lineup Next Season With Their New Signing And Five Summer Targets.
Goalkeeper: Ter Stegen.
Defenders: Marcos Alonso, Ronald Araujo, Andreas Christensen and Cesar Azpilicueta.
Midfielders: Franck Kessie, Gavi and Pedri.
Forwards: Raphinha, Ferran Torres and Robert Lewandowski.
Barcelona has just confirmed their signings of one of their summer target Christensen.
In the past few hours they confirmed the signing of the free agent Kessie and this means that Barcelona now has two new players in the team.
Earlier last week, Laporta gave a hint that the club will reveal two new signings and this has come to reality today. Christensen is expected to partner with Araujo in the defense next season.
While Kessie could be a perfect replacement for the outgoing Frenkie de Jong who has been linked with a move to Old Trafford this summer.
Barcelona are still pursuing more targets this summer as they have already made official bids for Lewandowski and Raphinha. Both players could soon join Kessie and Christensen at the club this summer.
Xavi Hernandez would be delighted that the club has finally brought in some new recruit as the team prepare to resume their summer tour.
Chelsea are in a bidding war with Barcelona over the potential signing of Raphinha. Barcelona are also interested in acquiring the services of Alonso and Azpilicueta but they are yet to give any update on both players.
