It has been reported that Xavi Hernandez wants a new holding midfielder in the winter because he is not too impressed with Oriol Romeu. However, the Spanish military leader may not soon receive what he expected.
Diario Sport revealed the reaction of Barcelona’s board of directors to the request from Xavi. Specifically, Barca warns Xavi not to expect new contractsi in January because it will be difficult to bring in new recruits due to the club’s difficult financial situation. The team’s top brass want Xavi to take advantage of existing resources, unless the club partes ways with some players.
The only possible arrival is Vitor Roque’s name but many other sources indicate that the Brazilian talent is unlikely to land at the Nou Camp in January. The Catalan team will try again next week to make the deal, but there is no certainty that Roque will become a Barca rookie in the 2024 winter transfer window.
Blagrauna have been missing a number of key players due to injury over the past few weeks but have just welcomed back Robert Lewandowski, Raphinha, Pedri and Jules Kounde. Frenkie de Jong is also expected to return after the international break, which will give Xavi more options in his squad.
