 Giving up Erling Haaland does not stop Barcelona from looking forward to a successful 2022 summer.

The media suddenly revealed that it was difficult for Barca to have enough financial capacity to recruit Erling Haaland. They withdrew in this deal, thereby creating contradictions in the previous statements of President Joan Laporta.

However, although Blaugrana could not recruit Haaland as promised by Laporta, the club still did a good job of “closing the book” for a bustling 2022 summer market.

Once again, Joan Laporta targets players leaving on a free transfer to save money. Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie have both agreed to join the Spanish giants after their contracts with Chelsea and AC Milan expire on June 30, respectively.

 Barca can welcome a series of rookies with 0 dong in the summer of 2022.

The third player on the list of rookies with 0 dong at the Nou Camp is likely to be named Noussair Mazraoui. The right-back on the Ajax payroll has no intention of extending a new contract with the host club and automatically becomes a bargain in the eyes of Barca. The agreement between Barca and the targets is almost complete. As long as the small terms are adjusted, Barca will soon announce the above deals. 

 

Laporta is closely following the criteria set last summer when he completed the signings of Eric Garcia, Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero. They all came to Barca according to Bosman’s law.

Dani Alves arrived later in January with no transfer fee. It was a shopping move that suited Barcelona trying to fix the serious problems of the Josep Maria Bartomeu era.

The signing of Kessie is considered a big win for Barca because the midfielder has attracted a series of interest from Premier League clubs, where there are teams willing to offer a salary higher than what he will pay. earned at the Nou Camp.

 Having Kessie will be a big win for Barca.

Barcelona are also hoping to sign Cesar Azpilicueta from Chelsea, although there are problems based on the automatic extension clause attached to the player’s current contract. The player is keen to sign for Barcelona and return to Spain, but Chelsea are still uncertain as to whether they will be legally allowed to offer the player a new contract.

Anyway, without Haaland or whether successfully owning Azpilicueta or not, Barca right now has the right to be satisfied with how effectively it works on the negotiating table.
