The FC Barcelona has been object of numerous informations that suggest the possibility of fichar a more experienced goalkeeper because of the injury of Ter Stegen. However, it seems that the Catalan club bends for trusting once again in The Masia
The FC Barcelona has confirmed that Marc-André ter Stegen will be out of the team during the rest of 2023 and at least the first month of 2024 because of a surgery to correct his problems of back. This news has created a debate on the immediate future of the goal of the combined Barcelona.
It was speculated on if the Barça would look for a guardameta with more experience to share the goal with Iñaki Peña, or if it would bet by the goalkeepers of The Masia, Iñaki Crag and Ander Astralaga. Nevertheless, as it informs 'Sportive World', the Catalan club does not have planned fichar to any goalkeeper in the market. This decision bases in the big level showed by the cancerbero Alicante and in the time limited of drop of Ter Stegen, that would not justify an investment in a guardian of the arch.
The guardametas that sounded like alternatives
After the announcement of the surgery of the guardameta germano, the rumours began to do sound with enough forces the names of David of Gea and Sergio Asenjo like possible options, but the picture culé seemed not being in position to do an investment that was not the one of Víctor Roque, and even considers the option of fichar to a midfield player to cover the drop of long dates of Pablo Gavi.
These factors, added to the performance stood out of Iñaki Peña in the parties against the Athletic of Madrid and the Port wine, where had key interventions, have carried to the club to descartar the idea of fichar a goalkeeper by the moment. Of this way, will give him full confidence to Crag, the one who will be backed by Astralaga (19) and Diego Kochen (17), goalkeepers of the filial.
