What will be the future face for FC Barcelona? Difficult, for the time being, to detail the outlines with precision, as the Catalan workforce still includes uncertainties. One thing is certain, since his return to Barça, Joan Laporta, the boss of the Culés, has become used to being active on the various transfer windows, and it is not the last winter window that could contradict this trend. With the arrivals of Ferran Torres, Pierre-Eymerick Aubameyang and Adama Traoré, the Blaugranas thus display a more than attractive face and will, as such, have the opportunity to regain their second place in Levante (this Sunday at 9 p.m.). in the league on the occasion of the 31st day of La Liga. A sporting success which inevitably pushes the Catalan leaders to try to keep this solid framework, what is more after the terrible failure experienced around the extension of Lionel Messi, today at PSG.
With this in mind, the Culés have already secured the future of Pedri and Ansu Fati, not to mention Ronald Araujo, who could extend in the coming weeks. But among the extensions, other issues still remain thorny. This is particularly the case for Sergi Roberto. Free of any contract next June, the midfielder trained at La Masia still does not know what his future will hold. A hot topic to which Rafael Yuste, the vice-president of Barça, therefore wanted to react: “We are talking with Sergi Roberto and his agents. He’s a footballer who comes from here and I hope the negotiations will end well.”.
Barça wants to extend its stars!
Same story for Gavi, a young 17-year-old nugget from Barcelona. Under contract until June 2023, the Spaniard also remains a priority file for the Catalan leaders, which is more in the light of the many courtiers seeking to offer the services of the international of La Roja (6 selections) . “Gavi is a great example for all the children of La Masia. We are working to reach an agreement with him and his agent for the renewal., assured in this sense Rafa Yuste, also questioned on the Ousmane Dembélé case … Sparkling since his return to the Catalan workforce, the former Rennais has also still not made an official decision concerning his future. But at this level, optimism is in order in the upper echelons of the Culés.
“Dembélé is very happy, I see him better than ever. There are still a lot of negotiations and we will see what happens. But the intention to renew it is there”, recalled the Barcelona vice-president. Asked, finally, about the Erling Haaland file, Yuste recalled the importance of respecting the financial framework, thus requiring certain caution in investments. “We work in discretion, but we will not make any reckless maneuver”, recalled Yuste. Enough to support the speech of Dani Alves who admitted, without language of wood, that he would not spend a lot of money to attract the Norwegian cyborg. The Brazilian side preferring to bet on the star of PSG: Kylian Mbappé. One thing is already certain, the next summer transfer window of the Blaugranas promises to be boiling.
