Learn about Barcelona news for the transfer market today, Friday, May 12, 2023, and what are the upcoming deals and players nominated to join the Blaugrana in the Mercato?

Barcelona fans are waiting for a lot of things from the club in the transfer market, after the great revolution that the “Blaugrana” carried out in the last summer transfer period, despite the huge financial crisis that the club suffers from, which Joan Laporta’s management tried to deal with by all means.

And after Barcelona lost the services of its historic star, Lionel Messi, in the summer of 2021, after failing to renew his contract due to the economic situation, he was forced to also abandon a number of young players, whether on loan or sale, to improve his budget.
