Two months before the opening of the summer transfer market, FC Barcelona is busy. If the Blaugranas are still experiencing so many financial difficulties – the Spanish league has asked the Catalan leaders to reduce their payroll by 200 million euros – the current La Liga leader does not intend to remain inactive during the next transfer window. With this in mind, the Culers continue to push for a possible return of Leo Messi. But that’s not all.

According to the latest information from Sport, Barça would have already reached a contractual agreement with Yannick Carrasco, currently in the colors of Atlético de Madrid. With a priority purchase option contracted with the 29-year-old Belgian international during the winter transfer of Memphis Depay, the Blaugrana club would also like to return to the negotiating table to lower the amount of this option, which remains to date unknown. Under contract with the Colchoneros until June 2025, Carrasco, for his part, refused several offers from English clubs.
