Three in, five out? How Barcelona expect their final days of the transfer window to shape up

The Blaugrana have been busy all summer


Barcelona have told La Liga are looking to make another 8 transfers before the window slams shut on September 1st, with 3 additions to be complemented by 5 departures in an ideal world, according to reports.

The Blaugrana finally managed to register Jules Kounde ahead of their 4-0 win over Real Vallodolid, meaning that they have now registered all of their new signings from this summer, but they are still on the hunt for fresh additions.

Specifically, they are looking to target the wide areas, with Marcos Alonso still high on their list of potential left-backs, while they are also on the hunt for another right back, though that may depend on being able to offload Sergino Dest.

Juan Foyth was one option, but injury has lessened the prospects of that move happening, and Xavi’s side are weighing up a move for Arsenal’s Hector Bellerin according to reports.

And Spanish journalist Gerard Romero even claims that a third addition may be possible, though it is as of yet unknown who, as Barca look to put the finishing touches to their squad this summer.

Who will leave?

Advances on a trio of departures are expected on Tuesday, with Martin Braithwaite and Miralem Pjanic both expected to leave, while a deal involving Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Chelsea continues to be discussed.

Meanwhile, Dest could depart if a buyer can be found, and Memphis Depay continues to be linked with a move away from the club after his agreement with Juventus fell through earlier in the month.
