With five players who may be of interest to Newcastle, Barcelona has a transfer ‘hope’.

This January, BARCELONA appears to be undergoing a major reorganization.

Newcastle United could be in talks with Barcelona in January, with the Catalan club reportedly hoping to offload some of their surplus players through the Magpies.

The Catalan club is eager to clear space on their wage bill, as financial constraints continue to limit their transfer market activity.

Xavi has already signed Dani Alves and Ferran Torres for Barcelona in recent weeks.

While this should help the team, the cost of doing so has forced them to offload players before they can officially register the pair, or even sign more stars.

Xavi’s determination to give youth a chance epitomizes the period of change at the Camp Nou, which has resulted in established stars struggling for playing time.

According to The Athletic, the club is hoping to offload some big names to a wealthy club like Newcastle, which has plenty of cash.

Pep Guardiola will miss Man City’s FA Cup tie against Swindon due to the Covid outbreak.

The Magpies had been linked with Philippe Coutinho earlier this month, but the Brazilian appears to be close to signing a loan deal with Aston Villa.

However, amid reports that Barcelona is desperate to offload the World Cup winner, Samuel Umtiti could be of interest.

After rejecting a move to Fenerbahce, Xavi and his teammates are said to have lost patience with the Frenchman, so any reasonable solution would be welcomed in Catalonia.

Newcastle’s recent transfer activity strongly suggests that a central defender will be their next target, with Sven Botman and Diego Carlos being mentioned.

Sergino Dest, meanwhile, could become the club’s second full-back signing, following the imminent announcement of Kieran Trippier’s transfer from Atletico Madrid.

Both men can play on either flank, and full-back has been identified as one of the areas where manager Eddie Howe needs to improve this month.

The likes of Ousmane Dembele, Memphis Depay, and even Frenkie de Jong are thought to be expendable at the right price when it comes to statement signings.

The former recently caused a stir at the Camp Nou due to his long-running contract dispute, but Newcastle would face stiff competition to land the winger.
