Undisclosed: Barcelona have completed the signing of a Spanish player.
While the summer window is still a couple of months away, transfer activity is already happening at Barcelona.
The Catalans have reportedly agreed deals to sign Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessie on free transfers when their contracts expire with Chelsea and AC Milan, respectively
Now, El Chiringuito TV has made a surprise revelation, claiming that Barça have completed another new signing. Indeed, the report states that the Blaugrana have a deal in place to sign another player.
However, it does not disclose the name of the player. But, it is revealed that the player who is supposedly heading to Camp Nou is of Spanish nationality.
Barcelona have been linked with quite a few Spanish players in recent months. The strongest links have been to Chelsea captain Cesar Azpilicueta, who is expected to join despite his one-year contract extension being triggered at Stamford Bridge.

Other notable Spanish players to have been linked to Barça include Valencia left-back Jose Gaya, former La Masia trainees Dani Olmo and Alejandro Grimaldo, and Celta Vigo full-back Javi Galan, who has been identified as the successor for Jordi Alba, among others.
The update from El Chiringuito TV also adds that the name of the player that Barcelona have supposedly signed will be announced imminently by the club.
The club have been locked in contract negotiations with several key players to extend their deals. Meetings with the representatives of Ronald Araujo, Gavi, Sergi Roberto and Ousmane Dembele are taking place this week as Barça seek to resolve their contract situations.
It will be an impressive feat if Mateu Alemany & co. have pulled off a new signing as well during this period and managed to keep it under the wraps. It will certainly be interesting to see if there is any announcement from the club’s part on any potential deal.
