Barcelona transfer news
In this article we bring you all the news about today’s Barcelona transfers. Be sure to check back for more daily updates on transfers during the summer.
Neto emerges as Arsenal’s goal
With Barcelona clearly struggling financially, it is not surprising that clubs have started looking for their assets, hoping for a cheap deal. Arsenal is one of them, and Athletic reports that the club will look for goalkeeper Neto in its search for a number 2 shooting block.
The club was thought to be close to a deal for Aaron Ramsdale, but last night’s reports revealed that talks had broken down as their valuation was too far from that of Sheffield United. As a result, the Gunners have turned to Barça’s 2.
It’s time for another @AthleticUK Arsenal Transfer Updates:
🚨 Odegaard remains the main target
🚨 Aouar back into the frame as an alternative
🚨 Maddison is not under serious consideration at this time
🚨 Barça net is a goal like GK2
🚨 Striker’s Hopes Diminishhttps://t.co/oJDUaX77wX

According to the report, “Arsenal can hope to reach a loan agreement” for the 32-year-old goalkeeper, who would be hired solely to provide backup to Bernd Leno. With Barcelona in desperate need of cutting the payroll, they may be forced to consider the offer.
Benfica’s move for Umtiti
Another possible exit is that of the French central Samuel Umtiti, who has been linked to a signing by the Portuguese Benfica.
Benfica will seek the signing of Samuel Umtiti after Jan Vertonghen’s injury, according to @Registro_Portugal. Barcelona’s economic crisis could make it easier for them to move to a free signing, although their salary demands could be an obstacle for them. pic.twitter.com/Qkeew1AVqc

According to the Portuguese Registry, Jan Vertonghen’s injury has forced Benfica to enter the transfer market in search of another defender, with Umtiti potentially available on a free transfer due to the Catalan club’s financial problems.
Umtiti has struggled in Barcelona since his 2018 play, and has apparently lost the faith of his own fans, who booed him every time he touched the ball in his last match.
Samuel Umtiti was whistled every time he took the ball during last night’s Barcelona game. (Related to not accepting a salary cut for Messi)
He went straight to the locker room after the game and was not in the group photo when he was presented with the Gamper trophy.

A withdrawal may be the best outcome for all parties, but will Benfica be able to ease their strong salary demands?
No more transfers unless Braitwaite leaves
Meanwhile, there is a clear problem with income. Toni Juanmarti, considered reliable by everything about Barcelona, took to Twitter to explain the situation, saying that:
There will be no more signings. Koeman met yesterday with the technical secretariat and asked for a midfielder and a forward. The club told him that his application will not be possible. I’d only go for a ‘9’ if Braithwaite left and for a good price.

However, since Braithwaite is currently not attracting much interest, Koeman may be forced to work with what he has in the post-Messi era.
