Xavi Hernández was pleased with his side’s win against Real Madrid (3-0) in Dallas on Saturday but still wants the club to add more signings in the summer transfer window.
“The window closes on August 31 and a lot of things can happen. Hopefully, we can strengthen the squad a bit more. We need to and the sporting director and the president know that. Despite the result and the euphoria, we need more,” said Xavi in the mixed zone after the win over Madrid.
Barça have already signed the experienced trio of Ilkay Gündogan, Iñigo Martínez and Oriol Romeu this summer, in addition to completing a move for talented Brazilian forward Vitor Roque, who will arrive at the club in 2024.
The coach from Terrassa wants another midfielder, with Bernardo Silva high on his list, as well as Giovani Lo Celso, according to Mundo Deportivo.
Right-back is also an area where he wants to add to, with Joao Cancelo and the highly-rated Valladolid full-back Iván Fresneda among the names on the club’s shortlist.
