The transfer plans of Barcelona are affected yet again by their current financial situation as it prevents them from pursuing a €40 million deal for Brazilian prodigy Vitor Roque. Amidst the latest developments, Barcelona are set to pursue their former star striker yet again despite parting ways with him last summer.
The 2022 summer transfer window saw Barcelona successfully secure the signature of Bayern’s iconic number nine, Robert Lewandowski, even though they already had Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in their books. The Catalan club had acquired Aubameyang on a free transfer from Arsenal but due to complicated financial concerns throughout the summer, Aubameyang departed to Chelsea after Lewandowski’s arrival.
As per new reports from Roger Torelló of Mundo Deportivo, Aubameyang has emerged as Catalan’s prime target to provide support for Robert Lewandowski at the forward position. The former Arsenal man is finding it hard to capture the striker spot at Chelsea and might be lured back to Spain.
In these difficult times, Aubameyang is a good option since the player will be signed as a free agent with a low wage and his positive impression in Barcelona’s locker room from his previous spell at the club might play a part in the ordeal.
As the transfer saga unfolds, Barcelona’s pursuit of Aubameyang highlights the club’s desire to bolster their attacking options and maintain a competitive edge, without breaking the financial fair play rules set by the league. The Summer window certainly highlights an interesting period for both the fans and the club alike.
