Additionally, Joao Cancelo, another recent addition on loan, is 29.

These signings were intended to provide experience alongside established players like Robert Lewandowski, Marc-Andre ter Stegen, Marcos Alonso, and Sergi Roberto. However, Deco believes it’s time for the club to shift its focus to a different type of acquisition.

According to the report, Barcelona will not consider even free agents who are older than 30, as new signings must maintain their transfer value.

Conversely, Barcelona is also fostering young talent, with players like Lamine Yamal, Alejandro Balde, Gavi, Fermin Lopez, and Pedri gaining significant playing time.
