It’s a hat-trick: Barcelona confident about signing superstar trio

Published

on

Ahead of the next season, Barcelona have their eyes set on three players as a priority this transfer window. Namely, these players are Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde, and Bernardo Silva.

While all three are blockbuster names in European football, Barça are confident about completing the signing of the trio, according to Alex Pintanel.

Robert Lewandowski

Lewandowski is unquestionably Xavi’s top priority ahead of the 2022/23 season. The Bayern Munich striker has a year left on his contract, and will be available for a discounted price in June.

He has been rather vocal about his desire to leave Munich even though the club officials at Allianz Arena are adamant about keeping the Pole for another season, at the very least.

There have been contradictory rumours about Lewa’s transfer fees and Barcelona’s offers in line with the same. Some suggest that the Catalans have made two official bids already, both of which have been rejected, while others suggest Bayern are yet to respond at all.

Jules Kounde

Gerard Pique, at 35, is at the last juncture of his career, and will likely retire at the end of the 2022/23 season. Barcelona must be prepared for his exit beforehand, and are eyeing a move for Sevilla’s Kounde.

The Frenchman has a price tag of €65 million on him, which the Blaugranas will look to negotiate. They want to add a player in the deal to lower the quote, with Sergino Dest seen as the prime candidate.

Chelsea are Barcelona’s main rivals in Kounde’s pursuit, but are leaning towards Matthijs de Ligt and Presnel Kimpembe over the 23-year-old, according to recent reports.

Bernardo Silva

The most expensive and least likely of the three, Bernardo looks to be on the exit ramp at Manchester City once again this summer.

The defending Premier League champions have demanded around €90 million for him, and are under no pressure to sell.

Barcelona can afford his signing, but it comes with several asterisks. First and foremost, they need to finalise the sales of their economic levers, which might bring in €300-400 million.

Barcelona plan to offer €30 million for 24-year-old La Liga defender

Even though we are just a few weeks away until the transfer window slams to a shut, Barcelona remain active in the market and are still looking for ways to strengthen their squad.

The Catalans have roped in a slew of top-quality stars in the month of July, including star striker Robert Lewandowski. Although they are yet to sign a player in August, Xavi has set his sights firmly on a few players.

One of those players in question is Juan Foyth. The Villarreal starlet has been identified as the ideal replacement for Sergino Dest as Barcelona look for a reliable right-back that can offer more quality than the American international.

Indeed, Barça have been left frustrated by Dest’s lack of progress at Camp Nou. They are prepared to sanction the exit of the former Ajax starlet, with Manchester United among the clubs in contention to snap him up by the end of the month.

While Dest’s exit from Camp Nou could soon be on the horizon, Barcelona are actively trying to lure Foyth away from Villarreal. The club are even weighing up an offer for the young Argentine, according to Gerard Romero.

The reputed Spanish journalist suggests Barça are considering a bid of around €30 million plus add-ons for Foyth, in an attempt to convince Villarreal this summer.

The Catalans are aware of the fact that the Yellow Submarines rate the defender highly due to his tremendous success in La Liga. In addition to his form, he offers a lot of versatility to the table and with time on his side, he could be a smart long-term investment for the club.

Manchester United are serious about signing a world class star in the form of Casemiro and reports suggest that they are ready to agree a mammoth contract to convince the player.

As per today’s version of AS (news image provided below), the Real Madrid superstar is really tempted by the offer made by the Red Devils.

The famous Spanish news source have mentioned that Man Utd have tabled a five year deal that will make the midfielder earn a net salary of more than £34million (40 million euros).

Casemiro is now in a massive dilemma. United’s offer is so succulent that it guarantees the midfielder and his family’s stability for ‘decades’.

On the other hand, by accepting such a contract, the Brazilian international will have to give up on immediate sporting glory.

Moving to Old Trafford would mean swapping Champions League for Europa League and it is a hard decision to make for someone who is currently a European Champion and has won the continent’s premier competition five times.

AS claim the situation must be resolved soon. If Casemiro gives the green light to leave, then Real Madrid would demand a fee of at least £68million (80 million euros) to sell him.

The Samba star is one of the best defensive midfielders in the world but the Los Blancos have already prepared for the future by signing youngsters like Camavinga and Tchouameni, who can effectively play in the DM position.

At Old Trafford, Ten Hag does not have a specialist holding midfield star and someone like Casemiro will largely improve the squad. However, the question is, should Man Utd spend £68million to sign a player who will turn 31 next year?
