It’s no secret that Raphinha (Leeds) is in the starting blocks to join Catalonia. Mundo Deportivo assures this Friday that Xavi’s idea is to associate him with Robert Lewandowski and Ansu Fati to form an infernal trio.

Because, in addition to wanting Lewy, the leaders are ready to play another bad trick on the Bavarians.
Barca have plans B
Catalunya Radio and Mundo Deportivo have announced that Barca have inquired about Serge Gnabry. At the end of the contract in a year, in 2023, the winger refused all extension proposals and no meeting is planned soon according to the German press.

Other name cited: Gonçalo Guedes. On the sidelines of a meeting with Valencia concerning Carlos Soler and José Luis Gayà, Joan Laporta discussed with the club the case of the Portuguese international striker. The player, whose price has been set at 40 million euros by his club, has been put on the market and offered to the Culés, who are studying the question as much as they have a good relationship with his agent Jorge Mendes. But the former PSG, courted by Atlético, is not a priority according to MD. Pending the outcome of the Ousmane Dembélé case, Barça has its back.
