Barca News Round-up: 06 January 2023

Barca News Network brings you today’s latest Barca News round-up including recent rumors regarding Ansi Fati’s future, Lamine Yamal’s renewal, Ruben Neves’s transfer updates, and talks with Roberto Firmino’s camp to sign him as a free agent.

Barcelona to Bet on Neves:

Recent reports suggested that the Blaugrana were in the market to look for another midfielder, and the names of Ruben Neves, Ngolo Kante, and Ilkay Gundogan were the most likely ones to be pursued. Now Neves has been finalized as the No. 1 target as per the reports from SPORT, with Xavi now also being convinced to trust the Wolves man.

Roberto Firmino in Talks with Barcelona:

Owing to the lack of funds available with the club, FC Barcelona have relied to a significant extent on signing quality free agents to bolster their squad. This policy is seeming to be continued as Barcelona are in talks with Liverpool striker, Roberto Firmino, whose contract expires at the end of this season.

Ansu Fati loan is being considered:

Ansu Fati rose to prominence in FC Barcelona a few seasons ago as he displayed his brilliant skills, especially in the domain of finishing chances. However, he has only been able to showcase his abilities in patches, as he has faced a significant amount of time on the sidelines with injuries.

New reports from Fichajes suggest that the club is now fast losing patience with the young Spaniard, and instead of waiting for his breakthrough, are more open to sending him on a loan spell.

Lamine Yamal’s renewal:

Lamine Yamal is one of the brightest jewels in the current crop of Barcelona’s La Masia and has impressed the club hierarchy with his performances with the B team. As he turns 16 next July, the club has already started the process to give him a proper contract once he becomes eligible by holding negotiations with the player and his agent.

Joan Laporta on FFP situation:

The financial difficulties being faced by FC Barcelona have been well-reported, and have drastically influenced the club’s ability to flex its muscles in the transfer market. The club President Laporta suggested yesterday that the club would need at least an income of €26 million in order to bring in new players in accordance with La Liga’s 1:1 rule.

Juventus eyeing a move for Jordi Alba:

The Italian giants are interested in the signing of Barcelona left-back Jordi Alba as a free agent or on a loan spell as reported by Barca News Network previously. However, the veteran defender wants to fulfill his Barcelona contract that is set to expire in 2024.
