In recent seasons, Barcelona is known as a club that often brings in star players. This season, for example, the Catalan club has just brought in two well-known figures, namely Sergio Aguero and Memphis Depay despite losing their superstar, Lionel Messi.
It is believed that Barcelona will re-sign star players next year. A number of top names have also been linked with the club based at Camp Nou.
Here are five star players that Barcelona could sign in the summer transfer market in 2022.
1. Aymeric Laporte
In addition to a less sharp front line, Barcelona also has problems at the back. The 3-0 defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League was one proof. One of the players who is considered to be able to increase the density of Barcelona’s back line significantly is Aymeric Laporte.
In the summer of this year, the Spaniard has actually been linked with Barcelona. However, Barca’s financial problems made Laporte cancel joining. Laporte himself seems to have a desire to leave Manchester City because John Stones and Ruben Dias are more often installed by Pep Guardiola as the main choices.
2. Paul Pogba
Paul Pogba did appear very promising with Manchester United at the beginning of this season. Even so, he has not yet decided his future at Old Trafford. In fact, the French midfielder’s contract will expire in 2022. Therefore, there is a possibility for the player to leave for another club on a free transfer next season.
Barcelona has indeed been linked with the 28-year-old player. If you are able to sign him for free, it will certainly be a distinct advantage for Barcelona. His presence is considered to be making Barcelona’s midfield more solid.
3. Bernardo Silva
Bernardo Silva is another star player who is considered to be able to join Barcelona in 2022. The Portuguese player is known to have great technique on the ball. In addition, he can also play in various positions, such as central midfielder, attacking midfielder, to the right wing.
However, to bring in the player, Barcelona had to prepare a lot of funds. According to Transfermarkt data , Silva has a tag of 70 million euros, equivalent to Rp. 1.17 trillion. The nominal is very likely to increase if the player is able to perform well this season.
4. Dani Olmo
Dani Olmo is arguably one of the best graduates of the La Masia academy in recent years. Despite coming from the La Masia academy, Olmo actually found his best performance when defending Dinamo Zagreb and RB Leipzig. In the Bundesliga, the midfielder’s appearance has improved and made Barcelona want to recruit him again.
During his uniform with RB Leipzig, Olmo has created 12 goals and 14 assists from 64 matches. If you want to bring Olmo back to the Camp Nou, Barcelona must prepare funds of around 50 million euros or the equivalent of IDR 837 billion.
5. Erling Haaland
It is common knowledge that Barcelona want Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Haaland . If able to bring in the Norwegian player, this will certainly be one of Barcelona’s best transfers in recent years. Even though he is only 21 years old, Erling Haaland has become a fearsome striker in European competition.
The proof, Haaland last season managed to come out as the top scorer of the Champions League with a score of 10 goals in only 8 matches. While at the start of this season, he continued to show his tajir by successfully collecting 11 goals and 4 assists from 8 matches that he had played. With that great quality, of course Barcelona have to prepare big funds. Reportedly, the price of Haaland is in the range of 150 million euros or the equivalent of IDR 2.5 trillion.
