Africa-Press – Botswana. The Barcelona coach reiterated to president Joan Laporta the need to guarantee the priority reinforcements that were selected, namely Robert Lewandowsk and Koundé.
According to AS, Xavi Hernández has insisted with Laporta that the transfers of Lewandowski from Bayern and Jules Koundé from Sevilla be closed quickly.
The coach wants to count on them since the beginning of the pre-season, and they have to be integrated in the training they will do in the United States in July.
The coach would also like to count on Raphinha, but he knows that the club may not reach the 40 million euros requested by Leeds.
The Bernardo Silva hypothesis is even more remote, due to Manchester City’s financial demands.
