Barcelona managed to lift the Joan Gamper Trophy thanks to the action of its youngsters. Lamine Yamal and Abde were the clear protagonists of the clash coming off the bench and Xavi Hernández was really happy at the end of the game. Another of those who left his mark was Ansu Fati, who scored once again in this preseason, but the Spanish coach did not ensure his continuity in the team from September 1.
«We will see, until August 31 we cannot say anything. We depend a lot on ‘fairplay’, a lot, I’ve always said it. Ansu is training very well, like Ferran or Raphinha. If Ousmane leaves, we will have to reinforce ourselves,” Xavi Hernández commented to the media as soon as the game against Tottenham concluded.
On the other hand, Neymar has also come to the fore in recent days as a possible reinforcement in the event of Dembélé’s departure. In fact, the newspaper L’Equipe advanced this Monday afternoon that the Brazilian had asked Luis Enrique to leave PSG this summer. Later, the player’s father denied it. Xavi Hernández did not avoid the question about his former teammate, but he did not get too ‘wet’: “I cannot advance anything about the names of other teams”.
“We will see what we can do between now and August 31, but I can’t advance anything about names,” added the coach. And it is that Barcelona’s discourse so far, and it seems that it will be like this until the end of the market, is to remain calm and cautious in these last three weeks of the market that have been frantic at ‘can Barça’.
