Xavi validates the signing of a world champion

FC Barcelona is already working on the succession of Sergio Busquets. A tricolor world champion could sign for free at Barça.

Despite its impressive recruitment this summer, FC Barcelona is far from achieving the expected season. Leader of La Liga at the truce, the Blaugranas have especially suffered a new disappointment in the Champions League. For the second season in a row, Barça was released from the group stage of the C1. After this new disappointment on the European scene, the Catalan club intends to strengthen its workforce. The signing of a new central defender is particularly desired following the departure of Gérard Piqué. The 2010 world champion decided to hang up his crampons in October. Besides Pique, Sergio Busquets should also leave Barcelona but at the end of the season. A tricolor world champion could come to ensure his succession in Catalonia.

N'Golo Kanté still targeted by FC Barcelona

The Catalan daily Sport ensures that FC Barcelona targets N’Golo Kanté to compensate for the future departure of Sergio Busquets. The slender midfielder’s contract expires at the end of the season. He should join Inter Miami, the franchise chaired by David Beckham, in MLS. Barca hope to get their hands on the French world champion in a similar situation at Chelsea. His contract also expires at the Blues next summer. From January the midfielder could negotiate freely with the club of his choice for a free transfer next summer. A golden opportunity that the Blaugranas would like to seize again after the free transfers of Kessié and Christensen last summer.

But the Catalan publication assures that a factor could compromise this deal. This is the physical condition of the middle of the Blues. Operated on hamstrings, the tricolor midfielder has only played two games this season with his club. His last appearance on the green rectangle dates back to August 14 in a Premier League draw against Tottenham (2-2).
