Barcelona President, Joan Laporta, has said “they are back”, claiming they will be able to compete for the best players next summer.
Laporta stated this on Monday, after presenting new signing Ferran Torres.
The LaLiga club let Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann leave last summer due to financial problems.
But Laporta has now warned their rivals they are ready to spend big to get back to the top.
After completing the transfer of Torres from Manchester City for €55 million, Barca have been strongly linked with Borussia Dortmund’s Erling Haaland.
“Allow me not to talk about individuals because it doesn’t benefit anyone.
“We’re working on the summer window. Everything is possible if it’s done well. I am sure things will go well. Barcelona are still a reference. Every player considers the possibility of coming here.
“We still have our status in the transfer market. Everyone can get ready because Barca are back; the arrival of Ferran shows that. We’re a reference. Barca’s resurgence is a reality and the football world has realised that,” Laporta said.
