No La Liga title, no Champions League success, winning the Copa del Rey is simply not enough for Barcelona, who, even more than the last years, need to strengthen their squad, and that’s exactly what they will do, according to their sporting director.
We have a lot of information and there’s a lot of work going on behind the scenes. It goes without saying that we’ll bolster the squad in the positions we need and that they’ll be big-name signings
Robert Fernandez told Barca Magazine. It’s interesting what he feels though, that Barcelona’s main problem is, in their quest to attract big names, or very hopeful talents.
The biggest difficulty we face is our own grandeur. A lot of players don’t want to come here because they aren’t sure they’ll get much playing time
Fernandez said, before sending an indirect message to Barcelona’s targets, ‘showing’ them how last year’s signings evolved these last 12 months, playing at the Blaugrana.
We are very happy with the players that we signed last summer, because they have all made big steps forward in their careers
Barca’s sporting director said, as if telling the Blaugrana’s targets this summer that if they work hard, they will be given the chance to shine at the highest possible level.
