Ferran Soriano He has been one of those in charge of this management since 2012 as executive director and he also had the opportunity to be vice-president in Joan Laporta’s first period in FC Barcelona. For this reason, the commercial relationship between the two clubs is always fluid.
For this season they have already closed the signings of Erling Haaland and also the Argentine Julián Álvarez, who will join Manchester City in the coming days. In addition, there are two possible names to be announced as Kalvin Phillips and Marc Cucurella. “We only need to change what we need and there are two things: a striker, who we already have, and a replacement for Fernandinho”Soriano explained.
For the executive director, the names of the current squad are very good, but in the citizen team there is no rest when we are talking about signings. Those of Etihad have some names in their sights that could become signings for next season.
Among the main links we have Barcelona. A clear example is the change of shirt that Ferrán Torres spent six months ago for the sum of 55 million euros: “We have a normal commercial relationship with Barça, we sold them a player.

“At Barça there is no forward or defensive midfielder”Soriano explained. This affirmation is in charge of discarding certain signings like Gavi, Pedri or Ansu that were news in the last hours. for the director “They are good players but we have well covered positions”he added.
Phillips and Cucurella are the names that will be announced in the next few hours to join City training. The former Leeds and the former Brighton, respectively, meet the expectations of the places that need to be strengthened for next season.
