Barcelona desperate to add a star name to attack this summer

There’s calm and stability at Barcelona. At least on the pitch. The 4-0 Clasico win before the international break has allowed the club to keep working on their objectives for next season.

And while a lot of the work has been done in defence, there is less certainty in attack. It’s known that Erling Haaland is the priority, but his signing is complicated. Salah and Lewandowski are the alternatives.

SPORT break down Barça options…

Erling Haaland (30%)

Barça will not throw in the towel but accept they are not favourites. There cannot be confusion about the fact that Barça have made the striker their top target and the chances of signing him. Expected revenue means Barça believe they can pay the 75 million euros fee and his wages within their spending cap, but the commission, up to 100 million euros for the agent and father, is a problem.

Barça are keeping a low profile now and want to convince Haaland with their sporting project. On the financial side of the deal, they hope to renegotiate the commission. Xavi is clear that Haaland is his No.1 option.

Mo Salah (60%)

The Egpyt forward, 30 in June, is a more versatile player. Like Ansu and Ferran, he can play wide or as a false nine. And Aubameyang’s performances mean a box player ins not necessarily as essential as it was. Salah’s contract talks with Liverpool are not progressing. His deal runs until 2023. Salah would like a new adventure away from the Premier League.

Robert Lewandowski (10%)

The Polish striker would immediately bring goals to the attack. His career and experience speak for themselves. Lewa is one of the best goalscorers in the game. He has a contract with Bayern until 2023, so a fee would have to be negotiated, as is also the case with Liverpool. However, Barça would presumably not give him such a long-term deal at 34, so the fee would have to be amortised over a shorter length of time, which could be a problem. His agent, Pini Zahavi, has a good relationship with Joan Laporta the Barça president.

Barcelona face major financial deficit if they suffer Champions League elimination

Just as you thought things could not get any worse for Barcelona, Europa League football may well be coming to the Nou Camp in 2022.

Xavi Hernandez ‘s side face Bayern Munich on Wednesday in a make-or-break match for their hopes of avoiding Europe’s second-rate competition and reaching the knockout stages of the Champions League.

And not only would relegation to the Europa leave Barca embarrassed, but in deeper financial trouble.

Having not competed below the Champions League since 2004, the tournament has been a source of trophies and lucrative income for the Catalan club over the past 17 years.

Now Xavi and co could suffer a serious loss which would all but end their hopes of completing a major January transfer.

Marca have pointed out the implications of losing or drawing in Munich and what Barcelona had banked on ahead of the campaign – long before they found themselves just one point above of third-placed Benfica in Group E heading into the final matchday.

In the club’s pre-season budgets, the Blaugrana planned on at least making the quarter-finals and collecting the subsequent £17million revenue.

But if Benfica, who host bottom-placed Dynamo Kiev, climb above Barca (who they best on head-to-head) on Wednesday, a deficit will emerge in the La Liga giants’ wallet.

Barcelona secured a winning end to their 2021/22 preseason campaign with a 3-0 victory over Juventus.

La Blaugrana hosted the Serie A giants at the Estadi Johan Cruyff as part of their annual Joan Gamper Trophy final.

Barcelona’s preparations for the game have been dominated by Lionel Messi’s exit from the club after the Argentinian international delivered an emotional goodbye message to fans.

However, despite the enduring cloud hanging over the club in recent days, Ronald Koeman‘s side impressed right from the start in Catalonia with Memphis Depay continuing his strong recent form with a fine early goal.

The home side picked up where they left off after the restart as Danish star Martin Braithwaite got away from his marker to head home Depay’s corner just before the hour mark.

With Juventus offering little in response, Barcelona added some gloss to the scoreline in added time as Riqui Puig fired home a third.

Koeman and his players will get their La Liga season up and running on August 15 with a home game against Real Sociedad.

Bundesliga giants Bayern Munich are said to have enquired about the possibility of signing one of three Barcelona players this summer.

Bayern find themselves in need of a right-back ahead of the coming season, and they have cottoned on to the fact Barcelona might just have one too many.

Between Sergino Dest, Sergi Roberto and new signing Emerson Royal, Barca have a wealth of options at right-back.

And according to RAC1 and BILD via Mundo Deportivo, Bayern have asked for prices for all three to find out which player could be signed.

Though, as detailed in the Mundo Deportivo report, none of the three players are likely to make the move this summer.
