According to the British press, MU and Chelsea are willing to spend money and compete to own the midfielder duo Gavi and Pedri, if Barcelona really wants to sell to have more money to recruit other stars.
The schedule for the Premier League matches in 2023 and 2024The rankings for the Premier League in 2023 and 2024Because Barca is short on funds, the club may be obliged to sell one of its rising talents to alleviate some of its financial strain.
The sports newspaper Sport recently claimed that Barcelona is still having financial troubles, even though they implemented a comprehensive savings scheme over the summer of last year.
The reigning champion of La Liga has made use of a variety of other ‘leverages,’ including selling Spotify the naming rights to the Camp Nou stadium, which they currently occupy. They only shelled out 3.4 million euros throughout the summer for the purchase of fresh recruits. Now, to pay off their debt and have more money for shopping, Barca may have little choice but to continue selling off valuable “assets” within the squad. Pedri and Gavi are two names that are likely going to be eliminated from consideration among them. However, Barca may only part ways with one of these two promising young midfielders.
Both Manchester United and Chelsea want to add Spanish players to their rosters, therefore the possibility that Barcelona would have to trade Gavi or Pedri has sparked a “war” between the two Premier League clubs. Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain are not the only European clubs interested in Gavi and Pedri, but both of these clubs are willing to spend a significant amount of money to get either of the two players whose names were previously mentioned.
Moises Caicedo, Romeo Lavia, and Lesley Ugochukwu were all players that Chelsea may have signed during the summer of 2023 to bolster their midfield. Similarly, Manchester United strengthened their midfield by acquiring Mason Mount and Sofyan Amrabat on loan from Fiorentina. Both players will spend the season at United.
Despite this, none of the two British titans has been able to achieve stability. As a result, there is a compelling need for them to look for fresh midfielders. If Chelsea or Manchester United hope to outcompete Bayern and PSG in this transaction, they will need to move quickly and aggressively.
