Xavi Wants More Reinforcements at Barcelona

Despite having completed five new signings and two contract renewals, Barcelona has admitted that the club needs more work on and off the pitch.

Following the goalless draw with Rayo, Barcelona manager, Xavi Hernandez reached the conclusion that the club needs to further strengthen the squad.

Xavi has therefore, demanded the signing of a right-back and insisted on it in the last few hours after Saturday’s duel.

The goal at Barcelona is to build a competitive team that can challenge for titles. The board is demanding trophies, which comes at a price, requiring certain conditions.

Who Players Are Coming in and Going Out at Barcelona?

A number of departures have yet to be finalised. The club needs to get rid of the players Xavi does not count on such as Samuel Umtiti, Martin Braithwaite and Sergino Dest.

The club is also working towards cashing in on players with high salaries such as Frenkie de Jong, Memphis Depay and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to meet their salary cap and register Jules Kounde.

Barcelona want to sign Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso, Manchester City midfielder Bernardo Silva and a right-back.

Against Rayo, Xavi used centre-back Ronald Araujo on the right flank and the Uruguay international suffered out of position.

The coach didn’t call up Dest and sent on Sergi Roberto in the second half when he moved Araujo to centre-back.
