Like this it remains the staff of the FC Barcelona 2022
A market has ended that, due to the volume of operations, will go down in the history of FC Barcelona
The first team squad has undergone profound changes in all lines
The summer transfer market lowered the curtain. The transfer window has been one of the busiest for FC Barcelona in terms of entries and exits. The flow of operations began very soon (May) with the transfer of Coutinho to Aston Villa and, as has been verified, it has practically ended in the last breath. This market, without a doubt, will go down in history and, after its completion, the FC Barcelona first team squad has already been defined.
The great numbers of said market are the following: seven signings (Kessie, Christensen, Lewandowski, Raphinha, Kounde, Marcos Alonso and Bellerin) in addition to the ‘refixing’ of Dembélé. As for casualties, there have been fourteen: Coutinho, Dani Alves, Luuk de Jong, Adama, Lenglet, Mingueza, Riqui Puig, Neto, Nico, Umtiti, Dest, Braithwaite, Aubameyang and Abde).
In any case, some of these players, due to leaving on loan, will return to the Camp Nou next season, in the event of Lenglet (Tottenham), Nico (Valencia), Umtiti (Lecce), Dest (Milan) and Abde (Osasuna).
Like this it is the staff of the FC Barcelona after the closing of the market:
