Ever since the humiliating defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League, the club has been making some changes in the team. Firstly, they sacked their coach Quique Setien to sign the former Netherlands coach Ronald Koeman.

What changes has the club made ever since the defeat against Bayern Munich in the UCL quarter-finals?

Now, after signing Koeman, the club has made some crucial changes in the team. The club brought onboard players from La Masia to join the first team. Some of those players are Pedri, Trincao, Carles Alena, and Moussa Wague. After that, the board decided to sell some of the players who were not part of Koeman’s plan for the club. As a result, the Catalans sold Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, and Luis Suarez. Rakitic made a move to his former club Sevilla.

On the other hand, Vidal took off to join the Italian giant’s Inter Milan. Lastly, Suarez joined the Spanish club Atletico Madrid as he now looks forward to playing against Barcelona in La Liga. Recently, the Blaugranas made a deal with Wolves FC to sell the Portuguese right-back Nelson Semedo.

The Barcelona board reached an agreement with Wolverhampton Wanderers FC for a deal approximately worth £37. The English club has made quite a few signings this season, especially from the Portugal national team. Wolves signed Semedo as they had no other option as an RWB this season. Semedo is a quick and physically healthy player, one of the qualities that the club looks for in its players. The Blaugranas have signed the deal, and the Portuguese will be at Molineux until June 2023. He may also extend his contract for two more years until 2025.
