Despite its poor financial state, FC Barcelona has been linked with a host of stars ahead of the upcoming season.
Prominent among these linked players include Robert Lewandowski, Franck Kessie, Jules Kounde, Cesar Azpilicueta, Bernardo Silva among others.
Various media reports have it that the Catalan giants are actively chasing these players and they could secure all their signings this summer.
In this article, SportsBlitz.ng takes a look at how Xavi could set up his men if all these deals come through. Check it out below:
Xavi is unlikely to revert from his favorite 4-3-3 formation with Marc Andre Ter Stegen starting in the goal.
Jules Kounde and Araujo could be partners in the heart of the defence while Azpilicueta and Alba form a full-back partnership.
Sergio Busquets could finally get some rest as Kessie could replace him in the middle of the park, thereby, forming a midfield trio with Pedri Gonzalez and Bernardo Silva.
Ansu Fati is likely to be favored at left wing with Ferran Torres serving as an option. Robert Lewandowski and Ousmane Dembele should occupy the other two positions upfront.
Here’s an illustration of the possible lineup below:
