Barcelona’s summer of transfer failure: The incredible starting XI they missed out on

11 Sep

“Ousmane Dembele signed from Borussia Dortmund, but Barcelona missed out on a lot of other targets”

The Catalan superclub aren’t suffering too much on the pitch at the moment, judging from their 5-0 hammering of local rivals Espanyol on Saturday, but they were still very disappointed with their summer business.

There is turmoil off the pitch with president Josep Maria Bartomeu disliked by fans and players alike – particularly since the £198m sale of Neymar to Paris St-Germain.

Ousmane Dembele was signed from Borussia Dortmund as a replacement – for an initial £95m which could rise to £138m – but a whole host of other targets were not secured by the Blaugrana.

In fact, we’ve managed to make a whole starting XI in a 4-3-3 formation from the players that were linked with a Nou Camp move but never made it there.
