The transfer market in European football is slowly moving. However, there are two clubs that are very active in it: Barcelona and Manchester City. The Spanish team, whose main objective is the renewal of Lionel Messi, has already hired three players, two of them from the Citizens, and is very close to signing its fourth new face for the 2021-2022 season. However, they do not stay still and in the coming days held negotiations to continue incorporating players to the roster Ronald Koeman.

Joan Laporta was clear at the time of his inauguration as president of Barcelona: he wants to put together a team that lives up to the club's history. In that sense, an agreement was first reached with Sergio Agüero, who arrived in Barcelona as a free agent, signed a two-year contract and, if Messi continues, he will play alongside his friend.

Then, another player at zero cost and also from Manchester City: Eric García. The defender returned to the club where he trained and will provide security to a team that last season had too many shocks in the background. Emerson Royal was also hired for that sector of the playing field, from Real Betis.

Now, who will be the next players to sign for Barcelona? Bernardo Silva and Joao Cancelo, from Manchester City. Yes, as he read, the Spanish and English clubs will continue to negotiate for more players. On this occasion, Pep Guardiola asked the Citizen authorities to get Sergi Roberto and Ousmane Dembélé in exchange, so that an exchange could be given.

But that's not all, since Fernandinho, Ilkay Gundogan and Scott Carson are also liked by Ronald Koeman, the former mainly because of the impossibility of signing Georginio Wijnaldum. If all the transfers are completed, Barcelona and Manchester City will have changed a total of seven players in the same transfer market.
