Barcelona are still looking for a few more players to bolster their team. They have already spent lots of money on players like Robert Lewandowski, Jules Kounde and Raphina. They even offered a new contracts to important players like Sergi Roberto and Ousmane Dembele. However, there are only four days left before the summer transfer market closes. If they need to do more business, they must do so fast.

Due to problems with player registration, Barcelona had to postpone their transfer plans. But they were ultimately able to formally register Jules Kounde in time for the match against Real Valladolid. The Frenchman started the game at right-back and managed to keep a clean sheet on his debut.

After settling these issues, Barcelona will concentrate on bringing in one or two more players before the dealing window closes. New full-backs are manager Xavi Hernandez’s top priority. A number of names have been mentioned, including Javi Galan and Marcos Alonso.

There are doubts however if Barcelona can register them. They will need more funds to complete the operation with the new names. 

Barcelona and their strategy to register players

To raise money, the Catalans are looking to move on some players. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Memphis Depay are considered expendable by the club. Moreover, Martin Brathwaite also faces an uncertain future at the Nou Camp.

According to claims from Gerard Romero, goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen reportedly agreed to accept a pay cut in order to aid Barcelona in adding more players before the transfer window closes. 

Ter Stegen has been a mainstay of Barcelona’s team for years, but in recent seasons, his performance has come under fire due to a drop in quality. He has made a solid start to the new season though. Fans will appreciate his gesture and hope that he can reach his previous levels again.
