Catalan sports tabloid ‘Sport‘ says, while Barca sports director Txiki Begiristain will follow president Joan Laporta out the door at the end of the season, coach Pep Guardiola has made it clear his squad is short of four major signings.
The Barcelona chiefs have agreed they need four new signings for next season.
Guardiola wants a midfield general, a wide player, a new right-back and a goalkeeper.
The goalkeeper will arrive as a replacement for Jose Manuel Pinto, whose contract will apparently not be renewed in June, Real Scoiedad keeper Claudio Bravo (26) has recently been linked to the club (read more).
The new right back will act as a back-up to Brazilian international Dani Alves (26), who is considered as the undisputed number one for the position.
Meanwhile Arsenal’s Cesc Fabregas (22) and Valencia’s David Silva (24) are seen as prime targets for the midfield and left wing.
