Barcelona’s unexpected midfield choice: latest updates

Barcelona is reportedly contemplating bolstering their squad in the winter transfer market, according to sources from Spain. This move could potentially reinforce manager Xavi’s selection options.

Particularly, the focus for the Spanish club could be on acquiring the former Manchester United player, Jesse Lingard. The Englishman is still a free agent after parting ways with his previous club over the summer. He was not persuaded to move to Al Ettifaq in Saudi Arabia. Barcelona’s interest comes as they have been consistently monitoring the ‘Financial Fair Play’ situation and are looking to take into account affordable recruitment.

The sources however did not provide any further details regarding how advanced these discussions might be, making the prospect of Lingard’s arrival at Camp Nou anything but certain.
