Barcelona are already working on a deal to sign RB Leipzig forward Dani Olmo and could make moves for Erling Haaland and Paul Pogba next summer, say reports.

The Catalans endured a nightmare summer transfer window just gone following off-the-pitch turmoil, including a £1.15billion debt announced in August which saw them unable to keep star man and talisman Lionel Messi, who is now at Paris Saint-Germain.

The summer crisis also limited Barcelona’s muscles in the transfer market, with the Spanish giants only signing free agents in Sergio Aguero, Eric Garcia and Memphis Depay, with Yusuf Demir and Luuk de Jong joining on loan and new right-back Emerson Royal being shifted to Tottenham for a profit.
