FC Barcelona is going to do some serious business in the transfer window as they have agreements in place for five players. The notion that Barca are broken and/or in heavy debt is more and more disproved after receiving a £555m cash injection to secure all of their primary transfer goals (as reported by Sport). Used to be.
main dish Barca’s summer transfer window operation features Bayern Munich attacker Robert Lewandowski, a player they have been after for quite some time. Lewandowski has also publicly expressed his desire to play for the Catalan giants, who are looking to consolidate their ranks after finishing second in La Liga last season.
Lewandowski is not the only player Barca are looking to sign, with the Spanish team agreeing a transfer for AC Milan’s Franck Casey and the Chelsea trio of Andreas Christensen, Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta.
Barca are also proving to be a pain for Chelsea as not only are they raiding the 2021 UEFA Champions League winners, but they have also gone ahead in the race to sign Sevilla defender Jules Conde. Chelsea have also explored the idea of signing Lewandowski, but Barcelona are firmly ahead of signing the Polish international. Despite the cash injection, Barcelona are still negotiating a pay cut with their current players.
Casey and Christensen are out of contract this summer, while Lewandowski, Marcos Alonso, and Azpilicueta have one year left on their contracts; Kaunde is signed to Sevilla until 2024. In terms of Barcelona’s own players, Dutch midfielder Frankie de Jong has been linked with Manchester United.
