Tuesday saw the disclosure of Xavi Hernandez’s demands for this summer’s transfer window by Joan Laporta. The head coach of Barcelona wants to bring in three more players after previously signing Ilkay Gundogan, Inigo Martinez, and Vitor Roque.
Barcelona needs to add a right-back and two midfielders, according to Xavi. Oriol Romeu is anticipated to sign, and a contract with Girona is most likely to be reached in the next days.
Another midfielder that Barcelona has signed might be a well-known name. Sport claims that they are keeping an eye on Thiago Alcantara’s circumstances at Liverpool. The 32-year-old has drawn attention from a number of teams in recent weeks, and the Premier League’s powerhouses may let him depart.
With eight years at Barcelona between 2005 and 2013, Thiago is well-known there. He was unable to cement his place in the starting lineup, and a transfer to Bayern Munich dually followed.
Due to his ability to play as both an advanced inside player and a pivot, Thiago would be a flexible option for Barcelona. It seems unlikely that they will be able to sign him permanently due to their financial difficulties, but if Liverpool are receptive to the idea, a loan arrangement may work.
