Already it did long that the FC Barcelona looked for a substitute for Luis Suárez, conscious that the 'gunman' added years of career to his backs and that was not eternal. The problem is that the crisis of the coronavirus arrived, forced to the Barcelona club to give off to the Uruguayan forward owing to his high wage and the market of signings closed without that had found him any substitute of guarantees.

From principle of season, the favourite option was the one of Lautaro Martínez, forward of the Inter of Milan to the that saw him a big present and a big future. The Argentinian fit to perfection with the profile of player that looked for the FC Barcelona but the pandemia arrived to cause an economic crisis that made impossible the fact to be able to pay the 111 million euros of his clause of rescission.

Descartado Lautaro Martínez, the FC Barcelona tanteó alternative more affordable and centred in the request expresses of Ronald Koeman: Memphis Depay. His versatility and the fact to finish agreement with the Olympique of Lyon in June of 2021 turned him into a big option, but there was another problem: the club culé did not achieve to lighten mass salarial sufficient as to carry to the Dutch without breaking the rule of the 'fair play' financial.

Finally, the FC Barcelona closed the market of traspasos without a reinforcement contrasted for the position of leading centre and with Martin Braithwaite like only '9' born of the staff. It is thus that the position of forward has gone oscillating in this initial stretch of season, being Leo Messi, Antoine Griezmann and, in the Classical, Ansu Fati those that have gone delivering the position.

Ansu Fati, the option of the house

After the last decision of Ronald Koeman with the youngster canterano, already sees to Ansu Fati like an alternative more than firm so that it was the future '9' of the FC Barcelona. The Hispanic-bissauguineano always played like leading centre in the inferior categories, by what has experience in the position. Like this it did it notice against the Real Madrid, playing by in front of Leo Messi with big mobility and marking the only so much culé of the meeting.

Until then, Ansu Fati always had played like left extreme but with his big performance as '9' in the Classical, would not be odd that the FC Barcelona bet by him in said position in front of the 'overbooking' of men of band in the staff. We are speaking of a formidable goleador that knows perfectly the style of game culé and the position of leading centre. That Ansu Fati went the bet of future for the '9' would not be a patch, but a firm possibility and contrasted.

Memphis Depay, in the recámara

Ansu Fati Only has played a party like leading centre and probably Ronald Koeman test it more in said position to check if it adapts well like man of reference. In case that do not work him, Memphis Depay will go back to be an alternative of weight for the forward in the market of winter, as long as it go out some player of the FC Barcelona.

This weekend, the international Dutch pronounced on it sucedido in summer after marking in the Olympique of Lyon-ACE Monaco (4-1). "Always I have been centred in Lyon even during the window of transfer of summer. I remained me and I am happy. When I play always I want to give the best of me, contribute the maximum to my team ", commented for 'Telefoot'. However, neither he neither Ronald Koeman close the door to his possible arrival in winter.

Lautaro Martínez, more difficult

If neither the proofs with Ansu Fati like forward neither the hypothetical incorporation of Memphis Depay prosper, Lautaro Martínez​ could go back to sound like reinforcement for the FC Barcelona, although in this case it would be the next managerial the one who would pose if go or no to by him. This yes, it is necessary to take into account the complicated financial situation after the pandemia, by what is in the air if there would be resources for ficharle.

In the previous of the party of Champions League between the Inter of Milan and the Shaktar Donetsk, Lautaro Martínez spoke on his future. "Work every day to improve. Today work for the Inter to take out the best of the team. I am happy, work every day to win and carry to the Inter the highest possible. This is what think today, tomorrow do not know what will happen", said, without closing any door taking into account the interest of the FC Barcelona. In spite of this, reiterate: it is the most difficult option.
