Clubs like Barcelona claim to be able to pocket 20 million Euros or around Rp. 330 billion to bring in new players in the January 2022 transfer market.
Crazybola.com – Barca are known to want to bring home their former player, Dani Olmo, from RB Leipzig. In addition, they are also interested in signing Raheem Sterling from Manchester City.
However, this is not entirely considered bad news for the Blaugrana. They have enough space and time to be able to strengthen their squad at the start of next year, if needed.
In fact, the club will pocket more than IDR 330 billion if they decide to bring in new players in the January market. That number can increase if there are players who leave Camp Nou. Thus expressed Sport.
Barcelona are known to want to sign a striker and a full-back, possibly on a loan deal or a cheap transfer fee, in the hope that they can help improve the team’s performance in the second half of the season.
Reducing the club’s payroll from the payroll – including the exit of two high-paying stars, Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann, plus additional sales of a number of players have also opened the door slightly for the entry of new players at the Catalan club.
Barca did not spend a lot of money in the summer transfer market and cut the salaries of their players.
The idea of borrowing players with a purchase option has given Sterling the opportunity to join Barcelona. Moreover, the Manchester City striker has also been a target for the Blaugrana in the last days of the transfer market.
They are also aiming for a full-back. The exit of Emerson Royal and injuries to a number of key players have left Barca with few options in that position so far this season.
It was previously reported that Sterling’s name surfaced as a secret Barca target after sporting director Mateu Alemany flew to Manchester and was rumored to want to negotiate the transfer of Edinson Cavani. In fact, it wasn’t Cavani he was aiming for, but he tried to borrow Sterling from City.
The player himself was open to a move to Camp Nou, but all hopes were dashed after City failed to sign a new top striker. Sterling’s salary itself is actually quite expensive, but quite affordable for Barcelona, while the loan offer is believed to be attractive to all parties.
