On June 6th, we carried a report from Mundo Deportivo, who explained Barcelona are planning for a ‘minimum four signings’ in the summer transfer window.
Frenkie de Jong was the first new addition for the 2019/20 season and Neto became the La Liga winners’ second signing after they agreed a deal with Valencia.
Friday’s edition of Mundo Deportivo claims Ernesto Valverde’s side are still missing ‘three or four signings’ in this window, even after adding the Brazilian to the squad.
The Blaugrana are looking for a back-up for Jordi Alba in the left-back position and a No 9 to reduce the burden on Luis Suarez’s shoulders.
In addition to this, Antoine Griezmann could be the Spanish champions’ next signing as the forward’s release clause at Atletico Madrid will drop from €200m to €120m on July 1st.
Paris Saint-Germain star Neymar is another option for Barca, but the deal is not close.
Mundo states there is a possibility Barca can sign both Neymar and the World Cup winner
or bring in one of the two.
With the addition of De Jong and Neto, Barcelona could still plan for ‘three or four signings’ this summer.
That’s just being greedy.
