The new season has gotten off to a crazy start for FC Barcelona. The club has already experienced everything, from being eliminated from the Champions League to Gerard Pique retiring, and as we prepare for a mid-season break, we could be in for yet another wild journey.
Barcelona will likely examine the market now and possibly pursue a few players in the upcoming January transfer window as the FIFA World Cup approaches.
Rafael Yuste, club vice-president, has now attested to this. The Spaniard recently claimed that Barça is actively searching for new players, although much may rely on the Financial Fair Play rules.
“Jordi Cruyff and Mateu Alemany are constantly keeping an eye out. We need to wait and watch how Fair Play plays out. You must be really careful,” he remarked (credit: Victor Navarro).
Barcelona has been engaged in numerous altercations with the Fair Play rules in Spain. The club’s comparatively modest pandemic revenue along with its excessive wage budget has been the main issue.
Although Pique’s retirement should significantly aid in budgetary balancing, the team is also looking to sell a few undesirable talents during the January transfer window.
After the new year, the Catalans should be able to sign a few fresh players thanks to this. According to recent sources, the club is largely searching for a new right-back and center-back, particularly in light of the uncertainty surrounding Hector Bellerin’s future and the departure of Pique.
