When asked about the club’s failure to land Haaland or Mbappé this summer, the Spanish coach agreed with suggestions that Barca simply didn’t have the financial capacity to match bids for those players right now. “That’s right. The economic situation is what it is,” said Xavi. “We are not in the bidding of Haaland or Mbappe, but it is what we have inherited. We must not look back, but forward.”
