Barcelona is preparing to live a restless end of the mercato between departures and arrivals. Moreover, the Blaugrana have identified the two recruits they want to bring in.
The mercatos follow each other and are similar for FC Barcelona. A year ago, the Camp Nou residents had to deal with the shocking departure of Lionel Messi. La Pulga had not extended his contract and had joined Paris Saint-Germain for free. This summer, the Blaugrana live an equally busy summer. The leaders are breaking their heads to try to sell their unwanted and recover money to replenish their coffers and recruit.
Barcelona reassured the clan Marcos Alonso
But this mission is anything but simple. Frenkie de Jong refuses to leave, Memphis Depay has crazy financial demands and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has just suffered a violent attack at his home, while his future is at stake. Regarding the Gabonese, Sport explains that the Barça directors, accompanied by Xavi, met on Tuesday to examine the latest offer from Chelsea. At the same time, they will decide on the last two summer recruits.
Regarding the position of left-back, Marcos Alonso is the priority. It is no secret that the Spaniard has been courted for weeks. But the different parties are not able to finalize this operation. However, AS reports this Tuesday that the case is on track. Joan Laporta met yesterday with Marcos Alonso’s agents and he assured them that the player would sign before the end of the mercato.
Advantage Meunier on the right?
Regarding the right-back position, the other priority of Xavi in terms of recruitment, the Catalan club is struggling a little more. Targeted for a long time, Juan Foyth is injured for 8 to 10 weeks. The FCB will therefore turn to other tracks, especially since Villarreal was greedy for the Argentine. According to Mundo Deportivo, Thomas Meunier (Dortmund), who has already agreed with the Culés, is now the number one target.
The Belgian wants to join Barça and is ready to go for his medical if the two clubs manage to agree. Sergiño Dest could go the other way around. MD then states that the former PSG has told BVB that he wants to leave to fulfill his dream of playing for Barcelona. However, Sport nuances by assuring that Barça must decide today on the identity of the right-back chosen. In addition to Meunier, Hector Bellerin and Hamari Traoré, a track revealed exclusively on our site, are also targeted. All these people should be fixed soon.
