Barcelona transfer news: The La Liga 22/23 champions elect have a big summer transfer window ahead of them. The league board has asked them to trim their wage bill by €200 million in order to comply with Financial Fair Play. However, they still want to register new players to bolster their squad ahead of the new season.
Sergio Busquets recently confirmed that he would be leaving the club when his contract expires in June – ending an 18-year spell with his boyhood club. There are now rumours that Ansu Fati could also leave, and sign for Wolves in the Premier League.
Barcelona transfer news: Fati, Neves, Gundogan and Torres updates
There are doubts over Fati’s future, while Ruben Neves has long been rumoured as an option for the club. But it remains to be seen whether Xavi really wants the Portugal international in his squad, considering they have another Premier League midfielder close to signing.
Ilkay Gundogan is close to agreeing a free transfer to Catalonia, when his contract with Manchester City expires. The veteran is open to trying a new challenge, and Barcelona are stepping up in their efforts to recruit him.
Ferran Torres could be on his way back to England, with Aston Villa looking to sign him. Unai Emery has done a remarkable job since taking over, and Torres could prove to be a great addition to the squad for the coming season to build on what they already have.
Inigo Martinez has already signed for the club, and the deal is only subject to FFP regulations. More Barcelona transfer news can be expected on Lionel Messi’s future in the coming weeks, when the player decides his next destination.
