Barcelona Looking To Improve Options

Despite the success of winning the La Liga title and comfortably beating Man United at Wembley to claim their third Champions League title, Pep Guardiola is still keen on increasing the size of his squad. Barca look interested in bringing in Alexis Sanchez and as we all know, I hope, the very talented Cesc Fabregas who has been tracked by Barca ever since his rise to fame in an Arsenal jersey, although he was on the Barca books at a very young age.

We all know that this Barcelona side is one of, if not the, best club side that we have ever seen but that won't stop Guardiola from reaching into the clubs bank account to take out a cheeky £50 million or so, although the club's board are insisting that all their funds will be generated from the transfers of players currently playing their trade at the Nou Camp. The likes of David Villa are being mentioned as the ones who could be offloaded.

Barcelona have insisted that they will go no higher than £35 million when it comes to the bidding for Cesc Fabregas. Arsenal have made clear time after time that Fabregas is not for sale but I don't think they can do much if the Arsenal captain really wants to move although he hasn't made any indications or expressed any desire to leave the Emirates.

An awful lot has been said about Alexis Sanchez and a lot of people I would presume think he is just "all talk". I'm going to be blatantly honest and admit that the most I've seen of him was a six minute clip on youtube but trust me, he can play. Barcelona are now favourites to land the Chilean playmaker after bids from both Manchester City and United have seemed to have fallen through.

Like I mentioned, if Barcelona want to purchase these players, some players must be sold to generate funds and that will leave the door open to a few of the top European clubs such as Chelsea, Man City, Inter Milan and maybe we could see a cheeky offer put in by Real Madrid for one of the Barca stars.

I would love to hear any comments you may have.
