OKEGOAL.COM - Ahead of the rolling 2023/2024 season, Barcelona continue to prepare.
So far Barcelona has brought in three new players.
These are the players Xavi Hernandez wants as a coach, namely Ilkay Gundogan, Inigo Martinez and Vitor Roque.
But it turned out that the arrival of the three players did not satisfy Xavi.
Quoted from Football Espana, the Spanish tactician still wants three more players to improve the quality of his team.
Barcelona president Joan Laporta has made it clear that there are two midfielders and one right-back that Xavi wants.
Sport newspaper later reported that the former Al Sadd player wanted a squad that was not too fat.
Xavi plans to go into the 2023/2024 season with only 22 players.
Therefore, many players not included in the scheme will be sold by the club.
There are approximately seven to eight players who will be kicked out of the Camp Nou. However, selling players remains a difficult task for Barcelona.
Currently only Samuel Umtiti has left the club. Meanwhile, Clement Lenglet, Frank Casey, Alex Collado, Ferran Torres and Eric Garcia are also on the sale list.
However, they need money from player sales to improve their financial condition.
Midfielder can be hooked
The problem of victory can suddenly make Barcelona win.
It is known that the club that Cristiano Ronaldo defends has been sanctioned by FIFA.
Al-Mirrat newspaper reported that the reason for preventing FIFA (aka Al-Nasr) from buying new players has something to do with the English club, Leicester City.
The club that brought Cristiano Ronaldo in January 2023 did not pay the bonus for the purchase of Ahmed Musa from Leicester from 2018 to 2020.
The reward they did not pay to Leicester City is estimated at 460,000 euros.
Because the penalty is still in effect, Barcelona's opportunity to choose one of Al-Nassr's players is open.
As you know, before finally moving to Faris Najd, Marcelo Brozovic was the target midfielder at Barcelona.
