Barcelona transfer news - Barca consider former Manchester United star David de Gea

According to an exciting claim by Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are considering signing David de Gea on a free deal, since he is currently without a club. It's thought the free agent would be a cost-effective solution to bolstering Barca's goalkeeper options.

David de Gea has been without a club since his contract expired at Manchester United in the summer of 2023. The goalkeeper is known as one of the best in Premier League history, so it's bizarre to see him without a club for this long. He has great experience of playing La Liga soccer, too, since he spent three years with the Atletico Madrid first team, having come through their youth ranks.

Barcelona transfer news - Simone Inzaghi eyed as Xavi replacement

The biggest confusion at Barcelona currently is their managerial situation for the new season. It is known by most that Xavi will leave the club come the end of the season, so they need to hire a new manager as soon as possible, to avoid any further confusion.

According to a report by Mundo Deportivo, Simone Inzaghi has been named as the latest candidate to replace Xavi at Barcelona.

Inzaghi is the current manager of Inter Milan, who have achieved great success in recent times. Let's not forget that last season, they reached the final of the Champions League, which is always Barcelona's aim. Therefore, it's no surprise that the report is claiming Barcelona will face competition from Premier League clubs.
