Zapping World Eleven EXCLUDED: Youssouf Fofana’s “Little brother” interview!
Barça is looking at Chelsea! Eager to strengthen next summer to expand a workforce and become a serious competitor in all competitions, Xavi Hernandez also knows that he will not have unlimited means. With this in mind, it will try to make some good moves, the financial surface of its leaders not being unlimited. Today, the daily Sport takes stock of the various avenues studied by the Catalans, who would like to do business with Chelsea again. Last year, they secured the services of Andreas Christensen and Marcos Alonso, and tried to enlist César Azpilicueta, in vain.
Chelsea also want to bring in some money
This summer, they want to get their hands on the 33-year-old Spanish defender again, under contract until 2024, who has played very little since the start of the year with only 11 starts in 31 Premier League days. In addition to the defense, the Blaugrana are monitoring this time especially the offensive sector, with three names mentioned: Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, already passed by Barça, Hakim Ziyech, tracked by PSG this summer, the American Christian Pulisic, as well as Mason Mount , more than ever on the start. Even Romelu Lukaku is mentioned, but bought more than 100 million euros almost two years ago, he surely does not enter into Barça’s financial plans. Finally, the very interesting profile N’Golo Kanté, at the end of the contract in June, appears, as has been the case for several weeks, but his club is also looking to extend it. With no less than 600 million euros of investment since his arrival last summer, Todd Boehly will seek to bring in some money, and Barça could well help him.
To sum up
Like last summer with Marcos Alonso and Andreas Christensen, Barça wants to make its market on the side of Chelsea, they had also tried Azpilicueta, now they are targeting Aubameyang, Ziyech or even Mason Mount.
