Vitor Roque is the latest reinforcement, but can not feature until the summer of 2024, while Real Madrid successfully hijacked Arda Guler, even though the Catalan giant had approached first.

Ilkay Gundogan arrived at Camp Nou as a free transfer, and it is the ideal strategy to help Barca during their financial crisis.

According to Gerard Romero, Silva’s agent, Jorge Mendes, has been in contact with Barca and is pushing for the midfielder to be a Blaugrana.

Silva is reportedly willing to reduce his salary to fit the financial conditions. Barça have already contacted La Liga, but a BIG sale is needed.

Meanwhile, Mirror Football revealed that Frenkie de Jong might be offered in a deal for Barcelona to sign Bernardo Silva, which is not good news for the Barca fan.
