Amazing Barcelona line-up with Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha joining ex-Arsenal man Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

It’s been three years since Barcelona won their last LaLiga title – but head coach Xavi is on a mission to do something about that.

The club’s legendary midfielder returned as manager last November and, with plenty of new signings expected to arrive this summer, he has been entrusted to bring the title back to Catalonia.

Despite still struggling with the financial difficulties that saw Lionel Messi leave the club for PSG, Barca have been linked with various new signings this summer.

But they need to sell first, with the likes of Samuel Umtiti, Frenkie de Jong, and Ousmane Dembele potentially set to leave the club when the transfer window opens.

Xavi has already been busy when it comes to incomings, however, having agreed deals to bring in Chelsea defender Andreas Christensen and AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie on free transfers.

Christensen looks likely to be joined by fellow Blues defender Marcos Alonso, who would provide some much-needed competition for Jordi Alba.

A third defender from Stamford Bridge has been linked to the club, with Cesar Azpilicueta reportedly wanted by the Spanish giants too.

In midfield, Pedri, Gavi and Kessie will all be good long-term options for Xavi, who knows all about central midfielders, with Sergio Busquets soon turning 33.

As for attacking options, Barca are inundated – and it could get even more exciting when it comes to forward options.

Memphis Depay only joined the club last summer, whilst Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Ferran Torres signed for them in January.

But they could add another two exciting attackers this summer, with Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha heavily linked with a move to the Nou Camp.

Lewandowski revealed that his time with Bayern Munich is ‘over’ as speculation continues around his future.

The 33-year-old striker spent eight years with the German giants and is one of the most prolific frontmen in world football.

And a move to Barca appears the most likely outcome for Lewandowski, with Fabrizio Romano stating that they’ve readied a three-year contract for the player.

As for Raphinha, he has reportedly turned down Liverpool in favor of a move to Spain.

That’s according to Sport which says the player has told his agent, who is former Barcelona player Deco, that he wants only Barca.

If a front three of Torres, Lewandowski, and Raphinha isn’t enough, the club are said to be lining up a move for Liverpool superstar Mo Salah when his contract expires next summer.

Who knows how they’ll fit them all in!
