Barça will soon replenish its coffers: here are the 6 players that Xavi absolutely wants to recruit

Barça were playing part of their short-term future this Thursday evening. During an Extraordinary General Assembly, the members voted by a very large majority to sell 49% of BLM (Barça Licensing Merchandising) and 25% of future La Liga TV rights. At the club, we hope that the activation of these economic levers, on which the management has been working for months, will make it possible to get our heads above water at the economic level. According to Mundo Deportivo, it could net the club between €700m and €800m. What a good blow.

Even if the Catalans will not splurge on the transfer market, the management intends to be able to strengthen the team, aware that the workforce needs quality players. With top priority: Robert Lewandowski. The Polish striker has been desired for many weeks in Catalonia and he has publicly announced that he wants to leave Bayern Munich. For the moment, the two clubs have not yet reached an agreement, but a new offer from the Spanish club should arrive on the table of the Bavarian leaders in the coming hours.

Mundo Deportivo have compiled a list of players considered priorities by Xavi. The first is called Jules Kounde. The French defender from Sevilla FC is the number one choice to strengthen the defense but it is expensive and it will be necessary to be convincing, especially as he is still on the list of recruits for Chelsea.

It is also on the side of the Blues that the Catalans wish to recruit. While the transfer of Andreas Christensen is already completed, but not yet formalized (just like that of Franck Kessié), Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso have both received a proposal from Barça, they who have only one year of contract left at Stamford Bridge.

The club is also looking for a replacement for Ousmane Dembélé, who is coming to the end of his contract on June 30 and who has not given any sign of life. It’s been a while since Raphinha, the Brazilian winger from Leeds, has been targeted. An agreement, broadly, would have even already been found. But he too is the subject of interest from several Premier League clubs (Arsenal, Chelsea), who have no problem paying the 55 million claimed by the former club of Marcelo Bielsa.

Finally, Xavi’s big dream is called Bernardo Silva. The problem is that Manchester City does not intend to part with it unless there is a crazy offer. The Portuguese could only enter into the plans on one condition: that Frenkie de Jong be sold. However, the Dutch median, courted by Manchester United and whom Barça will not retain in the event of a good offer, does not necessarily want to look elsewhere. This file is therefore complicated.
