Barcelona continues to chase after their most missed youth player while the rest of their dealings look to be those of selling rather than buying.
The arrival of Alexis Sanchez marks what could be the first and only major signing if the Blaugrana fail to be able to raise the funds to make their much wanted deal with Arsenal. Youngster Kiko also has already joined the club from Hercules, but will feature for Barcelona B.
Multiple targets have already left the club as once believed future Camp Nou star Bojan Krkic already joined Roma. He moved with hopes of getting more first team action as his time was limited with Lionel Messi, Pedro Rodriguez and David Villa holding down the front line for the Catalan giants.
The Spanish club are nearing the completion of their North American tour as the face Club America Saturday at 16:00 EST. It is their second straight match against a top class Mexican club after Chivas Guadalajara upset the Spanish champions 4-1 on Wednesday.
