The names of the players that will tour the United States for preseason have been announced by Barcelona Football Club.
On Saturday, July 16, 2022, the club posted a list of the players on its official Twitter account. Despite original indications that he might miss the tour, Frenkie De Jong, a summer target for Manchester United, is also on the list.
Five members of the team’s first team, however, were benched for the tour because Xavi, the club’s coach, does not intend to use them in the upcoming season. The list includes recent additions Andreas Christensen, Franck Kessie, and Raphinha.
Martin Braithwaite, Oscar Mingueza, Samuel Umtiti, Riqui Puig, and Neto are some of the players that Xavi benched. Robert Lewandowski, a Polish striker, is anticipated to join the group the following week.
