Barcelona squad overhaul

Barcelona want to make four new signings this summer as well as have a big clearout of their first-team squad, says Spanish football expert Guillem Balague.

The Nou Camp club want to re-sign Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain and Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.

But Balague says it would be very unlikely Barca could afford both players, as they also want to strengthen in defence and in midfield.

He started by claiming RB Leipzig’s Dayot Upamecano will be on Setien’s radar, as he looks to sell up to nine players.

“Upamecano, top player, there was talk about him two years ago and he will be wanted by many, many teams,” Balague said on his YouTube channel. “Barcelona want a centre-back, a midfielder, a winger perhaps and a striker.

“I don’t think Lautaro Martinez and Neymar can come at the same time, they just don’t have the finances, it’s as simple as that, even though they will try and get rid of eight or nine players in the summer yet again.”
