Transfer: World-class players eager to join Barca – Laporta lists targets
Barcelona president Joan Laporta has listed the players the club will be signing this summer.
He said surely the club would sign a full-back, a center-back, and a striker.
He boasted that world-class players still want to join the Catalan club, and this summer will be an example of that.
Manchester City midfielder Ilkay Gundogan is said to be very close to joining after agreeing to a deal and moving on a free transfer.
Laporta told SPORT that world-class players are prioritizing a move to Barcelona this summer.
“I have to tell you that world-class players continue to prioritize coming to Barça,” he said.
“Barça will surely have to sign a full-back and also a centre-back as long as there is a good opportunity in this case. I think a striker will also have to arrive, but someone will have to come out.
“We have a good midfield.”
