Barcelona preparing Manchester raid

Misfiring Barcelona are set to launch a January transfer attack on both Manchester clubs.

Barca are assembling bids for a number of Premier League stars, with plans to improve the Blaugrana squad taking shape under newly-appointed manager Xavi.

Sport claim the LaLiga club is primed to step-up their pursuit of Manchester City forward Raheem Sterling, while also tabling an offer for Bernardo Silva, who has expressed a desire to play in Spain.

In addition, AS report Ferran Torres is high on Xavi’s wish list and the club is willing to go all out to secure the services of the former Valencia ace.

Staying in Manchester, Mundo Deportivo believe Manchester United duo Edinson Cavani and Jesse Lingard remain key transfer targets for the Camp Nou hierarchy, as the Catalan giants seek reinforcements to save a disappointing first season in the post-Lionel Messi era.

A goalless draw in Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Benfica leaves their knockout hopes in severe jeopardy, while an unconvincing league campaign — including a home El Clasico defeat to Real Madrid — has left their title chances in tatters.
