Barcelona strengthened their squad over the summer with seven players. Four players arrived on free transfers (Franck Kessié, Andreas Christensen, Marcos Alonso and Héctor Bellerín), while Barça splashed out on Raphinha (€58m+7), Jules Koundé (€60m+4.7) and Robert Lewandowski (€45m+5).
On Sunday, Barcelona’s director of football, Mateu Alemany, said the club must now take into account the economic difficulties they are going through and that they must adjust to the financial fair-play rules set by La Liga.
Alemany explained that Barça will aim to sign free agents and Mundo Deportivo has produced a list of the players whose contracts expire on 30 June 2023 and who could be of interest to the club for next summer.
