I hope laporta is not using Raphinha as a decoy to get Dembele ....cos Leeds would have been massively screwed if that's the case...

Jorge Mendes is in Barcelona right now according to Gerard Romero

Cr7 to Barcelona here we go

Nah Mendes is offering him to Girona


Cannibal_Trailblazer

How much would Chiesa cost? If we're willing to spend 60 million on Raphinha then we can spend around same for Chiesa as well and despite his last injury he's a world-class winger when he's playing regularly.


Kunalkotkar

Chiesa even after his ACL is easily a 100M+ player. Plus he's one of Juve's most integral player.


holahermano1602

Juventus will never let him go.


TsaFack

IIRC Juventus bought him for about €60m, so I doubt that they'd sell him for that same amount

My dream window IF FDJ goes. Raphinha Lewy Christensen Koulibaly, Kounde, or one of. Later in the window to squeeze Lim: Soler, Gaya \+Dembele, Gavi contracts etc. 4-3-3 (4-1-2-3) starters+covers Ter Stegen (/Pena) Out: Neto Dest (/Araujo/Kounde/Roberto,) Kounde (/Garcia), Koulibaly Araujo (/Christensen+Pique), Alba (Gaya) Out: Lenglet, Umtiti, Mingueza Busquets (/Kessie/Roberto/Nico loan? Out: Frenkie, Pjanic Kessie (/Soler) Pedri (/Gavi) Out: Puig Raphinha (/Ferran/Dembele) Lewy (/Auba/Ferran) Dembele (/Fati/Ferran) Out: Memphis, Trincao, Braithwaite 22+Pique high quality players players in contention, in a kinda Man City shuffling way. With Pique and Alba phased out in a couple of years now that there is already adequate replacements in the team. I think this is a CL contending squad, Real won it. Right back will still be an issue though, but Araujo (/Kounde) will keep deputising there in Xavis inverted tactical switches when the other side is stretching, Alba/Gaya. The amount of levers Laporta will have to pull though.. My absolute dream is both Kounde and Koulibaly.. for both RCB and LCB balance.


holahermano1602

Koulibaly is unnecessary since we have signed Christensen.


Enslaved4eternity

Koulibaly is twice the player Christensen is. If not Kounde, then Koulibaly.


holahermano1602

Wow, you totally missed the point. Nobody's doubting his abilities, but incase you didn't notice Christensen is already a barca player. Signing kounde and koulibaly(which is what the original comment suggested) on top of that is unnecessary


Kunalkotkar

Christensen was never signed to be a starter tho. He's a squad player who can also play at DM. Club and Xavi both want another defender bcoz we're letting go Lenglet, Umtiti, Mingueza that is 3 defenders.


holahermano1602

And you'll think we'll buy two world class defenders? Lmao no chance. Mingueza anf umtiti were surplus to requirements. Lenglet was actually a squad rotation player. There is no chance we go for two top centrebacks. We don't have the financial power to pull it off.


Kunalkotkar

But we're definitely going for a top CB tho.... We're approaching Kounde. We have Koulibaly as an alternative. We're selling 15% TV rights to have the funds to buy these defenders. Whether they'll come or not that depends on many factors, but Barca is buying another CB is the truth. Christensen deal was done in March lmao we just announced it now that doesn't change shit.


holahermano1602

I think you have misunderstood my comment. We are DEFINITELY going for one more top cb. Thats necessary. The original comment suggested that we'll get both kounde and koulibaly on top of Christensen, which is unrealistic. One more top cb is definitely important.


Kunalkotkar

Ohhh yeah right. Buying both Kounde and Koulibaly when you've Araujo Pique Garcia and Christensen already is plain stupidity lol. Even in the hypothetical scenario that we do wanna buy another CB after Kounde/Koulibaly, a left footed CB will be preferred as every CB mentioned above is right footed.


holahermano1602

Exactly.


thepastprimefuture

signing 2 more center back would be overkill specially when we have already signed christensen


neandertales

Yeah I know.. But Koulibaly and Kounde are 2 of my favourite players and Koulibaly for a long time so. I just love their ball playing attributes+ability to be able to stand high. +They have been coached to do that a long time now.

themann55

I really hope we didnt use him as a decoy for Dembele like we did with Rudiger so Araujo renews. Raphinha wants the move badly and it was too advanced so it will be very bad if we pull out meaning we didnt have the "funds" to sign him while advancing it a lot.


CryptographerLife686

Chelsea want Ronaldo? Laporta about to hijack that deal too.


DonAvatti

They only want him on reasonable wages

What was the last big Italian player Barcelona signed?

Zambrotta


passion4indiegames

I like that Chiesa kid, can we get him to replace Dembele please?

Idk why you're asking me but no won't happen. Juve will never let him go and he's similar to Vlahovic in that he has some deep love for Juve for some reason.

It would be a real shame if we didn’t sign Kounde, he would be the most important signing we make this summer imo

How good is Christensen? Can he be first team player?


Yeager_isgoat

Yep having Araujo and Kounde back there should 100% clear up our defensive worries

Red1mc

black_bury

Probably cuz he ate spaghetti last night.


DALLAVID

I think Kounde leaves this season. 1) His contract expires in 2024, if he's not sold this window he'll be cheaper in the next, and he's not going to renew, he's waited long enough to go to a big club. 2) Sevilla are financially in a poor position and they need to sell, and they want to sign Luis Alberto from Lazio, and to make such signings which will cost a decent amount of money, they'll have to sell their biggest asset Kounde. ​ It seems that Chelsea don't have much interest in Kounde anymore as they are pursuing De Ligt, alongside Sterling and they might even sign Ronaldo. There's a decent chance we sign him this window and he shouldn't cost the 60m that Sevilla are asking for, signing him for 45m is possible.


DanielSophoran

were probably meeting them middle of the road depending on how much they need to register players. We have a good relationship with them and wont fuck them over


turtlemons

We might actually not need to pull the 49% BLM deal off. Laporta said that the second 15% TV deal would be enough. Better keep 100% of our assets.

Why does he keep saying that lmao


doxqwae

I understand that people want Kounde but you should remember that they already sold one of their starting CBs in Diego Carlos, they aren't going to let their other starting CB just go without finding an appropriate replacement


thepastprimefuture

if they dont sell kounde then they dont have any money to sign/register their other targets

Great point. They need to sell to sign so there’s no leverage there

rockyraccoonroad

There’s no contacts at the moment because we need to activate our other levers. Once they’re activated, we’ll knock on their door


latortillablanca

Marcão sure looked legit against us


inuyasha99

This is like Laporta saying there are other clubs interested in Frenkie


godish

Chelsea want kounde however


BabeeshKuttikkal

Inviting other potential bidders to increase the prize.


FANTASY210

This means nothing. Activity would always begin after the second lever


TsaFack

If Sevilla are making it difficult to get him, Alemany can always take that trip to Naples


slocean

I don’t think they will. The second quote is pretty telling imo


themann55

Of course it will be tough for them to lose 2 starting CB in one window, I think we will wait to activate the lever and of course after removing Umtiti and Lenglet. Kounde is the coach's priority and I really think Kounde and Lewandowski are the top of the list with Raphinha being necessary if\* Dembele doesnt renew.


ProfessionalKey5701

Raphinha is pretty much a priority too. Sure, there is optimism about Dembele's renewal, but his agent has only agreed to renew till 2024. Talks about his contract expiring might as well start again in a year or so, and you've also got to factor in the possibility of him being injured at some point.

Mrtuelemonde

0%, no official offer has been sent, he can't say anything else


inuyasha99

I would be worried if Chelsea was still going for him, but they switched targets and are going very hard on De Ligt. What other clubs are after Kounde besides us? I would say none


godish

They might get both? New owner looks to have a big wallet


inuyasha99

Doubt it tbh, he is not a priotity for Tuchel


Mapixoo

I think we are waiting till the second lever is activated to negotiate with Sevilla


iwillsoccerballs

not much, I'd say, he probably just wants to keep quiet about this situation for now. I can bet Barcelona have definitely at least contacted Sevilla for him


Amori17

A lot of sources have said they’re talking. My guess is they’re saying it to keep things quiet so everything goes smoothly


themann55

Bernardo Silva will not force a move away from #ManCity, but is interested in the possibility of Barcelona. However, the most important thing is Barcelona pay the amount requested by €80M. If we sell Frenkie then I hope we sign Silva otherwise Xavi's midfield would be weakened a lot in offensive phase.


ProfessionalKey5701

I see this move to be very difficult. If he ain't pushing, then City have no reason to sell after already selling Sterline, Ake, and Jesus. He's one of their most important players and has an exciting project in front of him. I also wouldn't be so confident in the asking price of €80m. Can easily see City stamping a 'fuck you' price to make it practically impossible.


themann55

No I dont think so, they are real with their prices when they place them. 80 million and he is yours is the approach they are giving and they have plenty midfielders to cover the positions. KDB, Foden, Rodri, Phillips, Gundogan.

If Frenkie leaves, I don't see how we can't pay 80 mil for him


latortillablanca

Or… just…. Keep the guy you have. If we make a move like that—at a loss in terms of fee—then it will say quite a bit about how Xavi rates de jong.


de_tu_sueno

If Bernardo fits the role better and comes in at half the wages, it's better that we switch.


Polskidro

Wanting a different and more versatile profile has nothing to do with how he rates Frenkie.

Titan-Shifter99

No neither will happen , Umtiti can join any club for free and Barca don't have to pay any termination fee.


holahermano1602

Never thought this day would come.


themann55

While we were talking shit about the board because of departures that I know still arent concluded but a lot of reports that are going in a good way, Selling/loaning these type of players would be the hardest job and its good to see news coming our way. Coutinho, Umtiti, Lenglet, Mingueza, Puig, Braithwaite, Trincao, Neto, Pjanic all of these guys has been circulating rumours much more than before. Some of them have been completed like Coutinho and Lenglet but also some of others have been advanced. Replacing them with Raphinha, Kounde, Christensen, Lewandowski, Kessie, Torre, Azpilicueta would be a miracle.

I explained many things to him in detail and that he had to play well from the beginning, have a good attitude and be focused to the fullest. Barcelona is a great city and I told him not to go out much at night, to be careful (laughs).

(🌕) JUST IN: Rennes is very much on track to sign Umtiti. The formula of the deal remains to be defined, yet.

CosaSara

I think if Umtiti asks to leave for free, we should let him. Would be fair to return the favour after he lowered his wages when he had no reason to mid-season. It'd also be beneficial to use I think. Of course, the risk could be that he goes to Rennes and recovers some of his form making him more valuable to sell later on had he we only loaned him rather than let him go definitively.


Mrtuelemonde

IIRC in his "extension" he can unilaterally break his contract to leave for free as he wants Definitely watching Rennes next year more, I'm curious to see how he is really


Mrtuelemonde

Wow, departures are really heating up Edit: according to [this account](https://twitter.com/Soso9zb/status/1543541339299741697?t=fhABuHBqZEQpGT3CVNEmrg&s=19) (guy behind the ActualiteBarca account, can attest he has had reliable info in the past, never huge news but he has direct links to Umtiti's entourage - but keep a critical mind even to my comment, it's still ITK stuff), Umtiti did 4 (!) medicals before going to Rennes, all positives - could explain why they are ready for a free agent signing, they must be confident

holahermano1602

Eriksen will be a bench option. I don't see him starting ahead of bruno in ten hat's system.


Jasvinder_SINGH

Bruno isn't good on the ball at all !! He is a guy who makes runs and not just normal some insane runs in the attack but Eriksen is clearly a better ball carrying option plus he can play at both wings too, Eriksen fits alot more than Bruno in this system.

Brunos decision making isn't good and he loves consistently going for the impossible, eriksen had a better season so he'll definitely be competition

Van der beek might get a go too. Under his old manager

CosaSara

Kinda surprised that what I'd think are the easiest 2 signings (Alonso & Azpi) are the ones with the fewest noise. Might be that Chelsea don't want to lose their whole defense in one window?


Darduel

They aren't priorities


Kunalkotkar

Maybe the club is prioritising starters like Lewy, Kounde and Raphinha. I mean Xavi wanted majority of "his" team before preseason... Alonso is backup for Alba and Dest Roberto are at the RB position so the club isn't in a rush.

Too much turnover and new management that wants to keep as many players as possible I think we can forget about Azpi and Alonso


themann55

Its a disaster for them. Imagine you have a new owner and you get bodied by a "broke" Barcelona. Raphinha, Christensen, Azpi, Alonso, Kounde, Dembele can all be taken from them.

Broke Barcelona still has the Barcelona tag


godish

They'd be shattered about Kounde

Tbh the day he first talked about this he gave it a 98% chance. He then switched to a 95% and now he is back to where he started.


godish

Dembele and raphinha is very impressive.

🗣 @gerardromero: “Raphinha to Barcelona, 98%” #Transfers 🇧🇷 Next updates gonna be 99.25% lmao I love Romero


Mrtuelemonde

You know when that happens to me when installing something, usually it falls down at 99,5...


moneytrees1899

I swear "98%" caught me off guard and made me laugh


holahermano1602

I would love to know how he calculates this.


godish

He said de jong is 95% to united a while back so he must have a snazzy formula


thepastprimefuture

he said that there is 95 percent chance that de jong goes to man utd, not 95 percent done


godish

Isn't it the same thing?


Polskidro

No


thepastprimefuture

95 percent chance that he goes to man utd means he can join them any time this season and he will be correct 95 percent done means that negotiation are 95 percent advanced and about to be a done deal
