Xavi vetoes Barcelona’s move to Manchester United star Reports

Barcelona reportedly planning a move for Manchester United forward Edinson cavani in January.

The Uruguayan has emerged as one of Blaugrana’s main transfer targets, as they have prioritized the signing of a striker in January. The Barcelona boss Xavi Hernandez is, however, uninterested in the 34-year-old. According to The national, Xavi is keen to recruit young players, and has vetoed a move for the Manchester United star.

Barcelona is suffering from a massive injury crisis in the attack. Former Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero may be forced to retire due to heart problems. Meanwhile, Ansu Fati and Martin Braithwaite have been ruled out of action for injury.

As a result, Barcelona has been heavily dependent on Dutch forward Memphis Depay. Blaugrana had parted ways with Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann last summer to reduce the financial burden caused by the duo’s huge salaries.

However, Barcelona failed to sign adequate replacements for Messi and Griezmann. The club ends up in seventh place in the league table and has won five of 13 matches this season.

Xavi’s men have struggled to create goal chances this season. The new Barcelona boss is reportedly keen to recruit a forward in January. But he wants to recruit a young talent rather than a forward in the twilight of his career.

Manchester United forward Edinson Cavani scored 17 goals in 39 appearances in all competitions for The Red Devils last season. However, the former PSG striker has seen his playing time at Old Trafford decrease this season due to Cristiano Ronaldo’s arrival and recurring injuries. Cavani has only scored one goal in eight games for United this season.

Barcelona has been linked with many strikers of the highest quality in recent months. But Blaugrana is facing debts of 1.35 million euros. This may force them to turn to the free agency or loan market for new recruits in January.

Manchester United striker Edinson Cavani is entering the final six months of his contract with the club in January. The 34-year-old may therefore be available for a bargain price during the winter transfer window.

But Xavi’s reluctance to sign aging players could force Barcelona to target RB Salzburg sensation Karim Adeyemi instead. The 19-year-old is one of the hottest properties in Europe this season. He has scored 14 goals in 18 matches over competitions.

Barcelona will need to sell some of their fringe players to raise the money needed to sign Adeyemi. Samuel Umtiti, Luuk de Jong and Martin Braithwaite have all been linked with a move away from the club.
