FC Barcelona faces a growing challenge with the rise of soccer in Saudi Arabia

FC Barcelona faces a growing challenge with the rise of soccer in Saudi Arabia, where clubs with colossal ambitions are tempting stars from the Culé team. This phenomenon, which intensified last summer with the departure of renowned players to the Middle East, seems far from over. Efforts to strengthen the Saudi league in preparation for the 2034 World Cup have led to an aggressive search for talent, including prominent members of FC Barcelona.

One of the names that resonates in this context is that of Raphinha, whose presence on Saudi soccer's radar is undeniable. Although the Brazilian opted to stay with Barça in the past, new offers could tempt him to reconsider his position. With the emergence of youngsters like Lamine Yamal, the Catalan club's management understands the possibility of a departure, although they are confident of retaining him.

On the other hand, the situation of Robert Lewandowski adds another nuance to this plot. Despite his roots at Barcelona and his crucial role in the team, Saudi interest, with its tempting offers, casts doubt on his permanence. The decision ultimately rests with the player and his willingness to remain a key player at Barcelona.

Finally, the case of Marc-André ter Stegen adds another element to the puzzle. Although the German goalkeeper is on the radar of Saudi clubs, his commitment to FC Barcelona and his contract status until 2028 suggest that a departure would be unlikely. However, the prospect of one last big contract could influence his decision.
