Xavi tells Laporta to make two summer signings – but sacrifices are needed. Xavi Hernandez is reported to have informed Joan Laporta that he wants only two transfers in the summer window.
The Catalan club is working on reducing the wages of some players, while others will depart from Camp Nou. The target amount is €200 million, as set by La Liga – but Xavi has made his two transfer desires public to Laporta. Lionel Messi and Martin Zubimendi are the two players that the Barcelona coach wants in the summer window, according to Mundo Deportivo.
In recent weeks, Messi has been linked with a departure from Paris Saint-Germain and will not renew his contract.
On the other hand, Zubimendi has been sought by Xavi for some time, and player exchanges could be used to facilitate his transfer and complete the deal.
