So far this summer, Barcelona have announced four arrivals: Franck Kessie, Andreas Christensen, Raphinha and Robert Lewandowski. There was also Pablo Torre, but despite training with the seniors, he was signed for Barca Atletic.
These arrivals have had a significant impact on what Barca’s current most expensive XI looks like. Here it is.
Goalkeeper: Marc-Andre ter Stegen – €30m
Despite this, the Catalans intend to offload the winger this summer. With the recent additions, it will be difficult for him to get playing time with the first team next season. As for Barca B, he might be too good to stay with the reserves in the third tier.
This suggests that Barca want to send Abde on loan and don’t consider a permanent transfer. His current deal runs until 2024, meaning that he would have only one year left on his contract when he returned next season.
Extending it until 2026 would give the club more control over the youngster’s future.
