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 2023 window, shut close and Barcelona left almost as they came, many fans were surprised. They signed Adam Traore on a six-month loan and also added Arsenal Centre-Forward Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on a free transfer last year. Ferran Torres was the first winter signing of Barcelona from Man City from last season.
They had an impressive summer signing where Barcelona got players like Gavi, Depay, Luke de Jong, and Garcia. Aguero also joined Barcelona from Man City but he announced retirement at the midway of the season.
Barcelona transfer rumors 2023
Let us now move into who the Blaugranas might be looking to sign come summer. A transfer market is a tough place now. Unluckily for the Blaugranas, they cannot spend a lot on new players. They have qualified for the Champions League 2023-24 after winning the Spanish League this season. 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. Watch & Bet here =>
Defense – Barcelona transfer rumors
Let us start with defense obviously!
Defenders – Iván Fresneda/Inigo Martinez
According to a report from ESPN, Barcelona is close to signing Real Valladolid’s 18-year-old Spanish right-back Iván Fresneda. According to the source, the Blaugrana are “putting the finishing touches” on a five-year contract with the player and are also nearing an agreement with Valladolid regarding the transfer cost.
Despite being relegated from La Liga with Valladolid on the final day of the season, Fresneda managed to enjoy a breakout season. Prior to new Barça sports director Deco’s aggressive pursuit of the teenager, Fresneda appeared headed for Borussia Dortmund. Fast-moving negotiations led to Valladolid allegedly agreeing to sell for about half of the player’s €20 million release clause.
The only remaining challenge is Barça’s battle against time to free up salary cap space for this summer’s additions, which also include free agents Ilkay Gündogan and Iigo Martnez as well as Girona’s Oriol Romeu, who is reportedly the favourite to succeed Sergio Busquets.
Clément Lenglet is close to being sold to Tottenham Hotspur, and the Catalans have already saved some money by releasing Samuel Umtiti. With Sergio Dest also being strongly linked to a permanent departure from the club in the coming weeks, there should be enough room on the budget to accommodate all the new names while still adhering to Spain’s financial fair play regulations.
Inigo Martinez, a centre back from Real Sociedad, is allegedly close to joining Barcelona as a “reliable partner to Gerard Pique.”
Josep Maria Bartomeu, the president of Barcelona, and Jokin Aperribay, his counterpart at La Real, held negotiations over the weekend, according to the Spanish publication Marca (via Fox Sports Asia). It is anticipated that Martinez will cost roughly €32 million (£29 million).
Midfield – Barcelona Transfer Rumors
This is where Blaugranas have needed the maximum back up.
Midfielders: Gabri Veiga/Oriol Romeu/Sofyan Amrabat
Gabri Veiga, a midfielder for Celta Vigo, seems to be in demand ahead of the summer transfer season; Barcelona is now also rumoured to be interested in signing the 20-year-old.
According to Diario AS, president Joan Laporta is a big fan and believes that he would be a perfect fit for Barcelona’s brand of football.
Veiga has a release clause of just €40 million and has been linked to teams like Liverpool, Manchester City, Bayern Munich, Manchester United, and Real Madrid.
According to the report, if Barca can find some room on the pay bill and if they are unsuccessful in bringing Lionel Messi back to the Camp Nou, they may opt to sign Veiga.
According to Diario Sport, Barcelona wants Oriol Romeu, a defensive midfielder for Girona, to take Sergio Busquets’ place.
Busquets joined the Blaugrana’s midfield after graduating from La Masia, but he is now moving on to MLS team Inter Miami, creating a vacancy to fill. Romeu has the chance to return after departing in 2011 to join Chelsea as it appears Barcelona has now turned to another La Masia alum.
Romeu, 31, who came from Southampton to Girona just one season ago, has excelled by making 33 appearances and even contributing with two goals.
Sofyan Amrabat is still being connected to Barcelona, and the most recent reports indicate that the midfielder might be offered at a discount this summer.
Although Amrabat only has a year left on his current contract, it is believed that he has a 60 million euro release clause.
Therefore, Fiorentina would be open to selling the midfielder this summer for just 20 million euros, according to Marca.
Amrabat’s brother has made it obvious that the Moroccan international is interested in moving to Spain this summer and is aware that Barca is interested in signing him.
Attack – Barcelona Transfer Rumors
This is another area of major concern for the Blaugranas. Check out who is being lined up for transfer targets!
Forwards: Bernardo Silva/Neymar Jr.
According to reports, Barcelona‘s pursuit of Bernardo Silva would be complicated by Manchester City’s demands for the midfielder. Mundo Deportivo claims that Barca manager Xavi is still a huge Bernardo supporter and has not “forgotten” about him.
The Catalan giants are reportedly out of any agreement because of City’s demands about the transfer money. Barcelona must be careful with their spending on transfer transactions because they are currently having financial problems.
According to Pep Guardiola’s recent ecstatic admiration of the Portuguese superstar, Bernardo is regarded as “indispensable” by City, which is supported by the allegation that he is so.
Recently, Neymar was mentioned in Spanish media as perhaps making a comeback to Barcelona, but manager Xavi has other plans.
Due to the club’s financial difficulties and memories of his first departure, Lionel Messi’s return to the Camp Nou was unsuccessful. However, following the Messi announcement, new rumours started to circulate that another former Blaugrana star, Neymar, had offered himself to Barcelona in place of Messi.
At Paris Saint-Germain, the Brazilian’s future is unclear. The injury-prone 31-year-old would be a victim of this new strategy as the French giants are apparently trying to develop a new frontline with “more discipline, less flash” with Messi gone.
Neymar’s enormous salary prevents the majority of teams on the planet from making a play for him, despite the fact that PSG are apparently open to selling him. Neymar wouldn’t be willing to just abandon his absurdly wealthy contract, either.
