Barcelona Update News: Wow, Xavi will use Pep Guardiola’s path, what is it?


Barcelona learned a valuable lesson when they lost badly at the headquarters of Real Madrid, some time ago. In the 2022/2023 Spanish League continued match, many weak points of Xavi Hernandez’s fleet were visible.

One of them is in the middle area, which doesn’t seem to have a special general to set the rhythm of the game. The zone also contributed when the flow of the ball from Real Madrid’s troops was unstoppable in the center.

No wonder Barcelona still has a high desire to add players. At least, the new player will have classy qualifications as a champion in the middle area.


Keep Chasing

Therefore, it is only natural that Barcelona do not want to stop pursuing their target player, namely Bernardo Silva, a Manchester City midfielder. The Spanish giants plan to bring Silva to Camp Nou via the January 2023 transfer market.

Well, in order to achieve the target, Barcelona is ready to pour 55 million euros or the equivalent of Rp. 838 billion. This figure is for the sake of getting the signature of the Portugal international who was born on August 10, 1994.


Never Fail

Previously, in the transfer market last summer, Barcelona coach, Xavi, included Silva as one of the players to be recruited. But failed miserably, because Silva preferred to stay at the Etihad Stadium.

Now, it seems Xavi is taking advantage of his proximity to Manchester City’s tactical interpreter who has also coached Barcelona, ​​Pep Guardiola. It’s just that, it is possible for Xavi to re-applaud.


Find Capital

You see, in order to get Silva, Barcelona must look for capital first. The trick is to sell off its star, Frenkie de Jong. Manchester United is widely reported to be ready to redeem De Jong at a fantastic price, 100 million euros or the equivalent of Rp 1.5 trillion.

In addition to waiting for uncertain capital, Silva will also think twice because the Blaugrana are threatened with never playing as well as in the Pep Guardiola era. Moreover, Silva hopes to lift the Champions League trophy.


Bound Contract

After all, Silva still has a fairly long contract at Man City, which is up to the next three years. So far, he has packed two goals and four assists in 15 appearances for The Citizens.

Meanwhile, De Jong confirmed that he was actually still fine at Camp Nou. That means he doesn’t want to move yet. The energetic, 25-year-old Dutch midfielder has also been on Liverpool and Chelsea’s radar.


Still at home

He emphasized that he was calm enough to face the financial crisis that was still hitting Barcelona.

“I was never really confused. I have to say quite calm. I decided in May I wanted to stay at Barca. My opinion on that has never changed,” he said.

Now, Barcelonistas around the world are hoping Xavi can gain additional strength in the midfield. Understandably, Barcelona’s line of strikers is well-known thanks to the presence of Robert Lewandowski, Ferran Torres and Ousmane Dembele.
