The squad now seems well set, with Thomas Vermaelen the latest arrival. However, if Luis Enrique thinks further strengthening is required, the likelihood is the board will back his judgment.
Sky Sports noted Andoni Zubizarreta's words:
With the addition of Thomas we completed a defensive line of a very high level. There are options that we are working on for the exit of some player, as such we're not discarding that others could come in.
What I can say is that at midnight on August 31 we hope to have the best squad possible. Even though we are very happy with the players that we have, if there is a chance to improve it, we will try.
Until the first or second (of September), when we talk about the market being closed, anything could happen.
Let's take a look at who has been linked with the club in the last couple of days. Remember to keep checking back throughout the week for updates.
