Barcelona looking for revival this season – Key Summer Movements!

The 2022-23 Summer transfer was one of the best windows for Barcelona, and it was perhaps the longest in history; and it was a period that Barcelona made quite a lot of big moves leading up until the deadline day.

From a side almost reaching bankruptcy in the previous season, it looks like Xavi has confirmed his dream squad for the next few years, thanks to this summer window. It was a window that transformed the image of Barcelona as they tried to set their sails right for another exciting season.

At a time when the club had well-documented financial troubles, it made the club find innovative solutions to register the newly signed up players. The side also moved up on several free transfers to complete their signings.

While several players were brought in, the club also saw transfer exits from key players, some of which were for financial reasons.

Here’s a look at the high profile Barcelona transfers during the summer window.


Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich (€45 million + €5 million add-ons)
Raphinha, Leeds United (€58 million + €10 million add-ons)

Looking at the sheets, it is evident that the club had more transfers than incoming ones. Some of the transfers did not please the Barcelona tickets holder, but they had to be done to sustain the club for the next few seasons.

The last two transfers that came Barcelona’s way were the signings of Hector Bellerin from Arsenal and Marcos Alonso from Chelsea. Both players came as free transfers as their contracts were terminated by Chelsea upon mutual consent.

Former academy player is the other newest signing for Barcelona, with Arsenal paving the way for him to join the Catalan club. Manager Xavi, who’s been extremely busy, expressed his delight at a recent press conference last week.

“The club has made a tremendous effort: he added. He now believes that the club has a competitive side.

“We now have a competitive squad and we need to prove it. We are very happy and satisfied with where we are.”

Elated Barcelona tickets holders are now flocking in numbers to ensure that they get their access sorted out for the games as we head into an all-important season.

Few of these signings out of the list were world-class, and Barcelona bid everything they had to get them signed. The race for Robert Lewandowski was one every Barcelona tickets holder was rallying around. The side faced more challenges in terms of not being able to sign him before the start of the La Liga, but the management effectively carried out all that to bring in these talents.

Here are four critical moments in the Summer transfer window for Barcelona

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Chelsea (€12 million)

The exit of Aubameyang probably was the disappointing one of it all. After starting at Barcelona at the start of the year, following a spat with the Arsenal manager, Aubameyang showed he was world-class.

In 23 appearances for the club, he scored 13 goals and brought in a single assist. It felt like the balance was restored for everyone who watched Barca play at the Camp Nou with Barcelona tickets.

But Aubameyang’s life at the Catalan club was shortlived, with the club facing financial liquidity. When Chelsea offered Barcelona a transfer request, it felt like it was the right thing to do. Aubameyang departed for somewhere near 12 million Euros but won the hearts of everyone who purchased Barcelona tickets.

Robert Lewandowski, Bayern Munich (€45 million + €5 million add-ons)

Ever since the Bundesliga concluded, it was inevitable that it was the Polish striker’s last game for Bayern Munich. The transfer was confirmed in July for a sum of 45 million Euros after months of negotiations with the club. Having realized that Lewandowski had less than a year left in his contract, Xavi was adamant that the 33-year-old continue his football at the Catalan club.

His impact was seen immediately as he currently dominates the game for Barcelona at the front.

Jules Kounde, Sevilla (€50 million + €10 million add-ons)

Another signing that Xavi was running after was that of 23-year-old Jules Kounde. The defender who was impressive at Sevilla was an obvious choice for the Barca manager and did not hesitate to spend big.

Considering Barcelona’s current squad maturity in the backline, this was an excellent move for the club. Barcelona had to push their limits to get Jules Kounde signed as liquidity and wage cap issues meant that the Kounde had to sit out two games without any action.

But with a 25% sell-out of their future television rights, Kounde was finally listed as a Barcelona player. Fans who purchased Barcelona tickets for the opening games were slightly disappointed not to see the Frenchman in action. But all of that is in the past – Kounde is all set now.

Raphinha, Leeds United (€58 million + €10 million add-ons)

Another top-tier signing was the signing of the Brazilian winger Raphinha from Leeds United. The deal was discussed before the pre-season friendlies and forced Raphinha not to travel to Australia with Leeds.

Speaking to the media, the winger added that it was “a dream come true” to play for Barcelona, and he looks forward to making his mark at Camp Nou.

One winner in the Summer Transfer Window

If we needed to name a winner for the summer transfer window, it would be FC Barcelona. From a disastrous season where they were pushed to their limits, the Catalan club has come out on top to cement their future.

These signings have brought excitement to everyone who purchases Barcelona tickets, and the number of tickets available to watch the side play at Camp Nou is running out.

While official sources might disappoint, trusted reseller platforms are now providing every fan with an opportunity to watch a game. By selecting the team on the platform, you will be open to multiple options regarding purchasing Barcelona tickets.

With all of these Barcelona tickets coming from verified sources, you can proceed to purchase with confidence.
