The transfer window is not even open yet and things are already heating up in the Catalan capital. But we all know that Barça have Lautaro and Neymar on their radar this summer. However, the situation is not exactly that straightforward.
It has been all about these two for Barcelona for months now. In the case of the latter, we can even talk about years since the two are a love story of old. But given the dire financial situation at the club and the current circumstances regarding the recent outbreak of COVID-19, one thing has become blatantly obvious: Barça will need to choose either Lautaro or Neymar, not both.
This goes hand in hand with the latest cover from Sport that emphasises exactly the same thing: Barcelona can sign only one star this summer.
Recently, we have learned that the negotiations for Lautaro with Inter have become quite complicated since the Italians are still adamant in asking for a hefty price and the operation to bring Neymar back was always going to be nigh impossible for Barcelona.
And now, it seems they are in a really difficult situation with both deals looking far from easy, the money scarce and the squad in need of a big revamp. What will Bartomeu’s next step on the market be?
We will simply have to wait and see…
