Barcelona is working fast to secure more than a lot of players this summer transfer
However, Xavi is keen to bring new players to the club this summer transfer ahead of next season
The board is doing everything possible to back him up during the transfer window
Recent reports claimed, that Barcelona has linked with 23-years-old defender seen as the new club Dani Alves
Although, the club has lately been linked with a move to sign Chelsea defender Cesar Azpilicueta
But the Spanish player could end up staying at Chelsea until next season when his contract expires
Thus even if he is signed this summer, Azpilicueta could only be a short term player at Barcelona due to his age
However, the club management is looking into the possibility of signing Dodo from Shakhtar Donetsk.
A right-back by trade, the Brazilian is dubbed as the ‘new Dani Alves’ following his excellent performances in Ukraine. He excels in going forward and is technically astute enough to thrive in La Liga.
Since joining the club in 2018, Dodo has made almost 100 competitive appearances for Shakhtar, registering 17 assists while scoring five goals
the 23-year-old feels his time at Shakhtar Donetsk is over, not least because of Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine.
He believes he is ready to take the next step in his career, with Barcelona among the clubs considering a move in the coming summer.
A move to Camp Nou could prove to be a wise move for both the club and the player.
Barça is in desperate need of a reliable long-term option at right-back – someone who can serve as a deputy for either Azpilicueta or Alves, before eventually taking on the mantle.
Dodo fits the bill well due to his offensive prowess and athleticism on the right-hand side of the pitch.
