3 Players That Can Improve Barcelona's Squad If Xavi Signs Them.

After Lionel Messi was sold by the management of Barcelona FC, the club has suffered so many losses. Their performance compared to when Lionel Messi was with them has dropped dramatically. This in turn made the management to get a new coach to improve the team's performance. 

Xavi was announced new manager early this month, and everyone is looking forward to him improving the team. 

If Xavi wants to perform well in Barcelona, here are players he should consider signing :

Jules Kounde:

The fact that Barcelona has had to make do with a weak defense is one of the numerous reasons for the Catalans' terrible start to the season. Clement Lenglet and Eric Garcia are still mostly inconsistent, while Gerard Piqué is clearly past his prime.

Jules Kounde, a French defender, is one player that could help Barcelona's defense. Last summer, Kounde was on the verge of joining Chelsea, and the 23-year-old would be willing to join the Catalans provided a transfer agreement can be achieved with Sevilla.


Sterling, Raheem:

Raheem Sterling, an English forward, has also been linked with a move to Barcelona in recent years. The 26-year-old winger is now out of favor at Manchester City and would be a fantastic addition to the Catalan club.

Sterling would bring a new dimension to Xavi's attacking options at the club, as the English forward possesses the pace and directness that the Catalan club currently lacks.

Haaland, Erling

While signing Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund would be difficult, the striker is exactly what Xavi Hernandez needs at Barcelona right now.

With Martin Braithwaite, Luuk De Jong, and Sergio Aguero all struggling so far, the Catalan club has failed to fully replace Luis Suárez, who moved Atlético Madrid last year.

Haaland, who has proven to be one of the most complete and clinical attackers in the world in recent seasons, would surely fill that striking role for Barcelona.
