The Blaugrana team is still waiting to close new deals to finalize a squad that likely lacks the finishing touch of a new midfielder.
As the winter transfer market reaches its midpoint, FC Barcelona stands at a crossroads, facing the challenge of sealing crucial deals to bolster their squad. While the club has already secured the addition of Vitor Roque, the focus now shifts to reinforcing the midfield.
Sergi Roberto's performances in midfield in recent matches have brought relief to coach Xavi Hernandez, but the need for new arrivals persists. While there has been speculation about interest in players like Aleix García in previous days, there are other clear targets on the radar of the Catalan club.

President Joan Laporta's stay in Saudi Arabia in recent days is not just about representation but also about finalizing key business deals. As reported by Sport, the primary focus is on completing the sale of Barça Studios, which was halted with the Líbero Fund for €40 million. A successful income would allow Barcelona to register a new player.
During his stay in Riyadh, Laporta actively participated in talks with coach Xavi Hernandez and former player Deco, strategically leveraging the celebratory atmosphere of the Spanish Supercup. Together, they have identified and agreed upon several potential reinforcements for the team.
However, the crucial aspect for the successful execution of their planned operations lies in obtaining approval from the financial department. As Barcelona navigates through the latter phase of the winter transfer market, the next few weeks are expected to carry significant weight in their efforts to strengthen the squad for the challenges that lie ahead in the remainder of the season. This period marks a pivotal juncture for the club's strategic planning and player acquisition strategy.
