It’s not hidden how proactively Barcelona are involved in the recruitment of a potential Right fullback in the transfer market. And necessarily so as it has emerged as one of the weakest links in the squad.
With Sergi Roberto being a makeshift fullback and Hector Bellerin performing well below the expected level, La Blaugrana might look forward to signing a young right back.
According to the ever-reliable source, Gerard Romero, Barcelona want to acquire a Young right back and sign him for the B team. He will still be involved in the first team dynamics but this maneuver is expected to help align the club with the FFP regulations enforced.
Also, Barcelona’s target for next summer, Moukoko, is garnering interest from Bayern Munich. The Bavarian Club is very much in the race to sign the player from their domestic rivals.
As for the CDM recruitment, Martin Zubimendi remains the priority and is the favored signing by Xavi and Mateu Alemany. Laporta likes the idea of Ruben Neves, whose agent Jorge Mendes has offered him to the Garnet and the Blue.
For the outgoings, Barcelona look to offload Dutch Forward Memphis Depay in January. The Catalan side hopes that he performs well at the world cup. This will hopefully increase his suitors and help the Catalan giants create FFP space post his departure.
