FC Barcelona Unveil New Head Coach Ernesto Valverde

Barcelona have a great squad right now and it was evident when they almost went unbeaten for the whole season last time. However, their Champions League campaign was sinusoidal and eventually, they were knocked out by AS Roma.

The Catalan giants are not without Andres Iniesta and replacing him is almost impossible. The huge gap left by the Spanish legend will be difficult to fill but Barcelona need to make a couple of world class signings to minimise the loss. 

While there are a lot of stunning players out there, it is important for Blaugrana to sign the ideal ones for their team. Signing random players isn’t the way forward, it is about signings who can make it into the first team and the one who can actually challenge players already in the starting XI.

Here are three players who can take Barcelona to the next level:

With Iniesta gone, it is essential for Barca to sign a replacement. The ideal player who can do it right now is PSG star, Marco Verratti. The Italian is one of the best in the world right now and has been linked with a move to Camp Nou for a long time.

He was reportedly close to joining them last summer but the Neymar saga made things bitter between the two clubs and he stayed put at Parc des Princes. Now might be the ideal time for Barcelona to make a move as PSG have FFP rules to comply with they would rather lose the midfielder than part ways with Kylian Mbappe or Neymar.

A midfield of Verratti, Busquets and Rakitic/Paulinho will be very difficult to get past. They will also be deadly in attack and create more chances for Luis Suarez and Lionel Messi.

Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele are already there in the squad and if they can chip in with some stellar performances when needed, Barcelona can go unbeaten next season and even break Real Madrid’s monopoly in the Champions League.

Manchester United have been linked with a £70 million move for Verratti and that means Barcelona will have to act fast if they wish to sign him.
