FC Barcelona had to let go of their best player Lionel Messi, all because of financial reasons. The club was and still is in debt, they ended their fiscal year with losses. But since Laporta was appointed, he made changes and the wage bill has also improved.
This means that if not in this window but definitely in the next transfer window, Barcelona will participate. As of now, they are targeting more players whose deals are ending. They are also targeting many talented youngsters but in that situation, the financial barrier will be a hindrance.
FC Barcelona transfer chief Mateu Alemany has travelled to Manchester to discuss a few signings.
Premier League targets for FC Barcelona
From Manchester City
Manchester City forward Sterling has been linked to Barcelona for a lot of time. The England international is looking forward to getting regular game time and is also reportedly looking for a new challenge.
Sterling once used to be a key part of Manchester City and played regularly. But the arrival of better players than him (Foden, Bernardo Silva and others) has reduced his game time.
Another target for The Culers is talented youngster Ferran Torres. The former Valencia player has impressed both Spain and Manchester City.
However, unfortunately, Pep has revealed that he looks forward to keeping the youngster. This is because he can become a very valuable asset to the club. Even if City will quote a high price then Barcelona will not be able to pay for it hence a loan move is possible. Barcelona is also willing to swoop Ousmane Dembele for Ferran Torres. Dembele is willing to stay but the situation is not in his hands.
FC Barcelona is also targeting Hakim Ziyech and Werner from Chelsea. The recent arrivals and competition have pushed these two to the fringes of Tuchel’s plans. Possibly Thomas will look forward to signing more players. Chelsea will not have a financial issue or barrier to sign players.

From Manchester United
Barcelona signed Aguero from Manchester City but unfortunately, things took a dark turn. The Argentinian was one of the most prolific strikers but had to retire unfortunately because of a heart injury.
The Culers are looking to sign Edinson Cavani as a replacement for Aguero. Cavani is looking forward to playing regularly and currently, Ronaldo is playing instead of him. Inter are also targeting Edinson Cavani according to the report. (Source: ESPN)
