    However, despite Barcelona missed out on the La Liga title to their rivals madrid last season campaign, Bartomeu says new coach Ernesto Valverde has the best team in the world and he his read to shake the world of football with the squad.
    “I want to give some value to the current squad, we have great players,” Bartomeu said in an interview with El Periodico. “We’ve renewed [Lionel] Messi, Neymar and [Luis] Suarez. [Gerard] Pique, [Sergio] Busquets. Now we have to renew [Andres] Iniesta.
    “We also have a precious team B,we have to promote some hardworking players from there also. Valverde is a coach that likes to look to the academy, that’s what he’s talked about in our conversations and we value that a lot.”
    However, Barcelona president concluded that where they had faults last seasons will be fixed
    “We’re working on it. Two or three players will join the club. There’s a long way to go in the window, we’ve got until the end of August. Patience.
    “There are some signings, but I can’t announce them until they’re done, we have a lot of teams that are spying to hijack. Robert is very clear on who he wants.

    Why Barcelona pulled out of signing Hector Bellerin.

    Barca’s budget starts at €60 million, Bartomeu says, plus any additional money brought in from player sales, and he “hopes” that at least one player is sold for more than €20m.
    The Catalan club’s transfer activity has been minimal so far this summer. Gerard Deulofeu and Marlon Santos have been signed on permanent deals, while Jeremy Mathieu and Cristian Tello have left for Sporting Lisbon and Real Betis respectively.
