The Saudi Pro League wants to continue signing world-class players in the summer transfer window. The Saudi Pro League already has stars like Neymar, Sadio Mane, Karim Benzema, and Cristiano Ronaldo. The league is not ready to go big, and they are willing to spend big this summer to bring more. Rumors are suggesting the league will try to bring Premier League stars Mohamed Salah and Kevin De Bruyne. The league is now looking towards La Liga and will try to sign an FC Barcelona player.

FC Barcelona is looking to sell players this summer to gain funds due to its economic crisis. Barca has started to now sell key players in the squad, but if a big offer arrives, the club will consider it. Players like Raphinha, Frenkie De Jong, and Ronald Araujo are seen as highly valuable players the club could sell for a big price. Raphinha has bids reportedly from the Premier League, and the Catalan club could let him go this summer.

Ronald Araujo was ruled out after Bayern Munich bid near $85 million in the winter transfer window. Araujo is seen as having the Barca DNA since he took part in La Masia. While Barca wants to keep Araujo, De Jong is also another name that could leave. Bayern, Man United, and Chelsea are interested in him this summer. Chelsea already reportedly bid over $100 million to sign him this summer. De Jong could potentially stay at Barca after positive contract talks between his agent and Barca sporting director Deco.
