Barcelona started looking for midfield players in light of the team’s most recent injuries. Gavi, a young player with promise, suffered a critical injury recently, and Pedri, another midfield player, also had an injury, which was revealed yesterday.
Scouts for the current Spanish champion are reportedly keeping an eye on Kalvin Phillips of Manchester City, according to Barça Universal. The midfield player may be acquired by the team as early as January, according to expectations.
Since the 28-year-old player has only participated in seven games this season and rarely sees the field, things are not going well for Phillips in the City camp.
His transfer is expected to cost 49 million euros.
As we previously stated, Barcelona plans to avoid paying transfer fees by renting a player to fill the centre of the field until the end of the current campaign.
