Barcelona target SEVEN transfers including hat-trick of world-class signings with Lewandowski and Silva on wishlist | The Sun

BARCELONA are reportedly targeting SEVEN signings this summer – regardless of the dire financial situation at the club.

Boss Xavi is eyeing a hat-trick of world class stars that includes Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski.

Manchester City ace Bernardo Silva and Sevilla defender Jules Kounde are also on the shortlist, according to Mundo Deportivo.

It's claimed Barcelona have formulated a financial plan that allows them to sign all three players, ideally before their pre-season tour to America begins on July 16.

Barca are expecting a cash injection from TV rights, plus licensing and merchandise, over the next month.

There is also the potential of funds from the sale of Frenkie de Jong.

Barcelona and Manchester United remain locked in talks over a move for the Dutchman with the Spanish side demanding £74million.

Bernardo, 27, is also admired but will only be targeted if De Jong does end up leaving leave for Old Trafford.

Xavi sees Bernardo as the perfect replacement for De Jong.
