Like many football clubs in Europe, the coronavirus outbreak has hit the revenue stream in Barcelona badly, which changed the attack of the club when the transfer window reopened.
Barcelona’s president Josep Maria Bartomeu remains confident that they’re going to always be ready to sign the simplest players within the world, but after the worldwide pandemic, transactions might be arranged differently.
“Because of the pandemic there wouldn’t be the maximum amount liquidity within the export market,” he explained. “But I expect we’ll see tons more swap deals.”
Sources suggest to ESPN that only Messi, Ter Stegen, and De Jong are excluded from transfer.
Barcelona has reportedly listed Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martínez and Paris Saint-Germain’s Neymar as its main summer transfer targets.
The Argentine forward features a €111 million release clause but it’s not anticipated that the Spanish outfit will meet Inter’s valuation and discussed the likelihood to use players to lower the fee.
