Barça and Betis’ good relationship is set to amplify as the Verdiblancos want no less than seven Blaugrana players, according to Spanish newspaper Sport.

Barcelona look to offload a lot of players as they have a big wage bill. Also, some players would benefit from the game time they’d get at the Benito Villamarín.

The first one is Carles Aleña, who is already playing for the Andalusian side and Betis want to extend his loan until next year.

Betis are also believed to be interested in another bright Blaugrana midfielder in Riqui Puig. The lack of playing time he’s getting in Catalunya might make him inclined to play for Rubi’s side.

Junior Firpo is also another player who has suffered from a lack of playing time since his transfer from the Verdiblancos. It is rumored that Betis have inquired about the left-back, but there is nothing concrete yet between the two clubs. Barça is stuck between two minds with Firpo and is thinking about including him in the Lautaro deal.

Betis also look to bolster their attack as they’re enquiring about Ansu Fati, Pedri, and Francisco Trincão. Fati is already regarded as a first-team player, and it is highly unlikely he’ll leave, even on loan. Whereas Pedri and Trincao could benefit from the playing time in Seville and a loan move would be adequate for both players.

As a Lebanese teenager who never had the chance to support their local team, I fell in love with the club that was FC Barcelona at the start of the decade. I always was passionate about writing and this is exactly what I am looking for: sharing my insights and opinions on football.

Just in: Neymar’s entourage confirms renewal with PSG as he ‘likes the project’

Fabrizio Romano has broken huge news as part of Neymar’s contract situation with Paris Saint-Germain, which all but officially announces that the Brazilian will be staying in France, contrary to what has been reported recently. The report suggests that that he will sign his extension soon, which is bound to include a massive UCL bonus.

Neymar’s entourage have confirmed his decision to stay with the Paris outfit in conversation with France Football, saying, “Neymar wants to stay at PSG. He sees that the club is growing. He likes the project.”

PSG have, in fact, actually enjoyed success in Europe in the recent past. They reached the Champions League final last season, crumbling only to the unstoppable Bayern Munich by a mere one goal to nil. Since then, they have fired Thomas Tuchel, and hired Mauricio Pochettino, who inspired an incredible victory against Bayern in this season’s Champions League quarters. Spearheaded by Neymar and Mbappe, the capital-side hit the defending champions for three goals, conceding two.

Despite their lead in the UCL, they do not have a stronghold on the trophy with the likes of Manchester City, Chelsea, and Real Madrid still in the running. It becomes a lot more problematic when you realise their situation in Ligue 1.

PSG look far from comfortable in the league, which is a shocker to say the least. As it stands, Pochettino’s mean are in second place with 66 points, three adrift of Lille who top the table with one of the most impressive defensive records in Europe.

A season without either of the big trophies might force Neymar to have a change of mind, with the Barcelona project looking much more comprehensive under Joan Laporta. In fact, the new President might look at the Brazilian as the key that will allow Lionel Messi to stay at the club. We do the same rumours annually, so it is only fair if any of these ‘confirmations’ are turned on their head in the coming weeks.
