Barcelona latest signings news (Barcelona transfer rumors) – Who have Barcelona signed?
Another great source of Barcelona transfer rumors is who has Barcelona signed?
When the January 2020 window, shut close and Barcelona left almost as they came, many fans were surprised. Quique Setien has inherited a good team from Valverde. However, his team needs new players to complete the squad, and Quique despite shortlisting many could not get his hands on many players. They did sign Braithwaite but he was an emergency signing.
However, as January rolled into February, Barcelona surprised everyone with their big-name Barcelona transfer rumors. February is not usually a time when you sign players but it was another start of a rumor for Aubameyang again. It kept going up and down. Auba is now set to leave Arsenal and Barcelona can sign him up.
Barcelona transfer rumors 2020
Let us now move into who the Blaugranas might be looking to sign come summer. The transfer market is a tough place now. Unluckily for the Blaugranas, they cannot spend a lot on new players. They also want to qualify back for Champions League 2020-21 and are in the 1st spot in the Spanish League this season so far. It means Barcelona owners will unleash a rather heavy war chest. Some have reported that the amount is likely to be in the region of around £250 million at best!
It will certainly be a huge advantage for Barcelona. So let us see who they are interested in signing.
Defense – Barcelona transfer rumors
Let us start with defense obviously!
Left Back – Nathan Ake/ Ryan Bertrand
This is one area Barcelona desperately need to back up. Their current option is only Jordi Alba who is brilliant but very often injured and ageing fast. So, they need a back up if they want to win multiple competitions. A possibly good deal could be the chase for Alex Telles from FC Porto. They will add good intensity to the squad and can be vital for Barcelona.
Centre Back – Kalidou Koulibaly/ Dayot Upamecano/ Jerome Boateng/ Gabriel Magalhaes/ Samuel Umtiti
This is a position where the Blaugranas lack strong defense. With Pique and Lenglet they have old and decent players but not world-beaters. So the backline lacks depth besides Umtiti who is not doing much better under Setien either. Upamecano is a good player for the future but Barcelona needs someone who can take charge now.
Boateng has plenty of experience but maybe past his prime. However, Koulibaly would tick all boxes and really take Barcelona to the next level. He will not come cheap though with Napoli last time asking for around £100 million for him! The Gabriel Magalhaes situation is also favorable since he is developing fast and has expressed interest in changing clubs but Barcelona will have to fight Chelsea!!
Midfield – Barcelona Transfer Rumors
This is where Blaugranas have needed the maximum back up.
Center Midfielder – Sandro Tonali/ Isco
The Blaugranas have Frenkie De Jong, Arthur Melo, Sergio Busqets ready to fill in this role, and Rakitic too if he stays. Hence, these are not priority signings. However, they do need a midfield workhorse if Ceballos leaves. Sandro Tonali would definitely be one for the future as many clubs are already after him. As for Isco, he is world-class and Barcelona despite not needing him, might go for him as he will increase the level and quality in that midfield. But it will be tough to buy Isco from their arch-rivals
Attack – Barcelona Transfer Rumors
This is another area of major concern for the Blaugranas. Check out who is being lined up for transfer targets!
Left-wing, Right-wing Forward – Jadon Sancho/ Willian
Wingers will be of great importance to this attacking-minded Barcelona team. Right now they have Griezmann and the imperial Lionel Messi. Griezmann however, primarily plays up top with Suarez. Philippe Coutinho is being seen as a likely option to stay back with Quique Setien a huge fan of the player. He can be a star again. Ousmane Dembele has seen his career go wayward in Barcelona. However, at this young age a new start could do wonders for him. Especially with a new manager.
Jadon Sancho is the big prize money. He has a host of clubs on his tail with Barcelona believed to the lead. Sancho will almost definitely leave Dortmund this summer and is expected to break the transfer record. Well, Quique does have money for that.
The Blaugranas are also reportedly in talks to coup up Chelsea’s soon to become free agent Willian! He has openly stated that the club (Chelsea) and he are at a stalemate. It means Barcelona are free to sign him for nothing in the summer! He would be a brilliant squad player!
Centre-Forward – Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang/ Neymar/ Lautaro Martinez
Messi is world-class but cannot play all 60 matches a season anymore. They need someone to take the load off him. With Fati and Suarez as only two backups, Barcelona is looking at options.
The chase for Martinez will see Barcelona take on other clubs who are seriously in need of a striker. Inter have shown interest in Aubameyang and Barcelona will have to swoop fast to get Auba and Neymar is always an option. Will Barcelona finally bring him back home?
Barcelona Latest Transfer Targets – Barcelona transfer rumors
Barcelona transfer rumors are reported via various media agencies, news sources, club sources, and players sometimes!
So these were our list of players who we feel could be on the Blaugranas’ radar for Barcelona transfer rumors. If Barcelona did even manage to get 2-3 of them, that would cap off a fantastic summer and the Blaugranas under Setien could be ready for a title challenge much sooner than we think. Do you think there are some other players Barcelona should try to sign? What about some transfer rumors you have heard of? Let us know!
