Barcelona planning to announce three or four signings before the Euros – report – originally posted on Sportslens.com
Barcelona are planning to announce three or four signings before the European Championships next month, Spanish outlet Ara reports.
The Catalan giants had a disappointing 2020/21 league campaign by their high standards, and ended up finishing seven points behind champions Atletico Madrid.
There is likely to be a summer rebuild at the club, but it is still unclear whether Ronald Koeman will remain the head coach for the next campaign.
The club are still working on potential new signings, and it is reported that they are working to announce three or four deals before the Euros.
It has been an open secret that Eric Garcia will join the club on a free transfer when his contract with Manchester City expires next month.
An announcement is planned after the Champions League final. The Spaniard could be joined by fellow Cityzens teammate Sergio Aguero.
Pep Guardiola has confirmed that the Argentine is close to joining the Blaugrana. Aguero’s arrival is likely to convince Lionel Messi to sign a new deal beyond June.
Elsewhere, Brazil international Emerson appears set to return to the Blaugrana after a couple of seasons on loan with Real Betis.
Betis and Barcelona co-own the rights for the left-sided defender, and the latter are expected to buy him outright for around €9 million.
The club are likely to assess his performances in pre-season before considering whether to sanction his sale for a profit in the transfer window.
The above-mentioned trio appear certain to join the club. A fourth signing could be Memphis Depay, but he has yet to make a decision.
Depay has regularly been linked with the club with the chance to reunite with Koeman, who transformed him into a striker while managing the Netherlands.
