Barcelona Has Three Goals For The Upcoming Summer Transfer Window.
Sporting Director Jordi Cruyff and Director of Football Mateu Alemany are beginning to arrange the summer window as Barcelona’s extension negotiations pick up steam.
Before the summer, there are a number of crucial contracts that need to be renewed, with the club expected to give new contracts to Alejandro Balde, Inaki Pena, Ousmane Dembele, Sergi Roberto, and Sergio Busquets. In the summer, they will then go for three important targets.
After Memphis Depay joined Atletico Madrid, Barcelona acquired Yannick Carrasco with what was reportedly a €20 million purchase option, whereas MD pegged it at €15 million. The Belgian winger is a favorite of Xavi Hernandez, and the Blaugrana will make an effort to cut down on his appearances by deploying Diego Simeone mostly as a substitute.
The 17-year-old Vitor Roque is someone Barcelona is reportedly in talks with Atletico Paranaense for as a temporary stand-in and eventual Robert Lewandowski successor.
Sofyan Amrabat is perhaps the most challenging of their three desires. Amrabat attempted to push his way out of Fiorentina for the Moroccan midfielder, but was unsuccessful. The Blaugrana made a last-minute loan move for him.
La Viola is still expected to want a sizable sum of money for Amrabat. Although his contract expires in 2024, Barcelona would probably have to compete for his services.
