When Xavi Hernandez came to replace Ronald Koeman as Barcelona coach, apart from the ambition to raise the performance of his squad, he also wanted to bring in new players to further strengthen the composition of his squad.
Currently, they also have an interest in bringing Ferran Torres from Manchester City, after the Spanish passport player was allegedly intending to leave the Premier League competition in the near future.
While Joan Laporta has confirmed an interest in Ferran Torres, the Blaugrana president also has bad news for his supporters, after claiming that it still sounds impossible to issue a transfer fee in January 2022 after the financial crisis.
“Xavi, has asked us to strengthen the squad and Barca will try to do it. But at this time, the club has not been able to make it happen,” said Laporta quoted from Football Espana.
“Therefore, at the moment Barcelona can’t. However, we have to let the club’s sports department do its job,” he concluded.
The best way for the Blaugrana to be able to bring in a new face, it seems they have to be willing to sell one of their players first in the upcoming winter transfer window of 2022 in order to get additional funds.
