Two players from Barcelona could end up in Real Betis even as Manuel Pellegrini continues to plan for his squad ahead of next season. The Chilean football manager and his employers have set their target on finishing strong in Spanish La Liga and Europe.
According to Estadio Deportivo, as cited by Fichajes, Real Betis intends to sign at Camp Nou, which could come at a lower cost. Betis are gradually becoming a competitive side in the Spanish top flight, and plans are in place to maintain such a level.
The two Barcelona players Real Betis intends to sign next year
Marc-André Ter Stegen is the undisputed first-choice goalkeeper at Barcelona, and it looks like the Blaugrana are looking for continuity.
Iñaki Peña, whose contract ends in the summer of 2023, could leave the club for free. Real Betis considers the Spanish goalkeeper the top choice.
Perhaps one of the surprise signings of FC Barcelona last summer, the right-back may not stay beyond next season at the club.
Barcelona has other options and intends to sign a right-back instead, meaning Bellerin would leave Camp Nou for free.
