Barca Want Three New Faces

Barcelona vice-president Josep Bartomeu has revealed that the Catalans hope to boost their squad with three new faces next season.

Barca claimed the La Liga title without having to play on Saturday night, but they missed out on a chance of grabbing the UEFA Champions League title after a hefty 7-0 aggregate beating by Bayern Munich.

This has led to speculation that the club may shake things up at the end of the season but Bartomeu says that they are not in need of a complete change.

"Victor Valdes has told us that he will not continue, so we need to try to find a replacement goalkeeper this summer," Bartomeu is quoted as saying by SPORT. "But also a central defender and a forward."

The vice-president also urged fans to focus on the positives by celebrating their fourth league triumph in five years.

"It is a celebration that the team deserves, especially (coach Tito) Vilanova and (defender Eric) Abidal, but also all of the people who have been following Barca," he enthused.

"We must be grateful to these players. The first half of the season was spectacular. Things are still going well, so we have much to celebrate."
