After achieving the two objectives of this season, FC Barcelona will focus on planning the next course, in which the main mission will be to compete again and win titles. To do this, difficult decisions have to be made.

With his tie in front of the Getafe (0-0) in the penultimate day of LaLiga Santander, the FC Barcelona confirmed his presence in the next edition of the Supercopa of Spain, in Saudi Arabia, and 'ensured', at least, eight million euros by the dispute of the 'final four' of the tournament. It was the big aim of the picture culé in this final stretch of the season after achieving, also, the note to the phase of groups of the Champions League 2022-2023.

And it is that, although they are two obligations of the Barça year after year, has been all a challenge achieve the classification to both tournaments in a quite irregular season in which, around the middle of October, the Barcelona picture occupied the ninth position of the classification. It has been a begin from zero and a Russian mountain that leave clear something: The course that comes it is necessary to have a clear-cut project and also a staff that allow to compete by all the titles, as historically it has accustomed the picture culé.

Xavi Hernández, Barcelona trainer, has defined the project, but has insisted in that they have to take risky decisions and complicated of face to the 2022-2023, season in which the Barça can not give the 'luxury' to remain in white in what to titles refers . For this, is necessary that produce a big number of exits in the changing room and that arrive new reinforcements. The egarense has indicated that they already are to time trial.

After the tie in the Coliseum Alfonso Pérez, Xavi aimed that "it is necessary to do a diagnostic. We need to reinforce us, it is necessary to do an effort between all. The next year it is necessary to struggle by titles. It is necessary to prepare us well and be competitive", adding that "this week, will schedule. Have clear what has been missing us to compete: it knows It the Board, Mateu, Jordi... We will prioritise. Next year it is necessary to compete by titles. We will speak of all the names".

This yes, that the Barça can or not being competitive will depend on the economic situation of the club of face to the market of signings of summer, as it has left to fall the trainer of Terrassa: "it Depends on the economic situation. If it is good, am optimistic and will be able to compete. But we will expect to see the economic situation". This section is the more key and the situation seems to not to move a lot in the last days, while it continues negotiating the agreement with CVC and the sales of 49% of BLM or of Barça Studios.

They are operations that are in process, but that have taken more than the expected. In the meantime, the Barcelona picture is in a critical situation and with the security that, if they do not sell a few players and generate extraordinary income, will be impossible to go out to the market of signings. Like this of grave and complicated is the crisis of the Barça, that hampers it more the limit salarial negative that have the culés, which will force them to free three or four times more what cost a player to be able to inscribe it in League.

avecinan A lot of decisions

With this panorama in mind, remains something clear. It will be a very moved summer in Can Barça and will produce a lot of operations, of compulsory way. The culés have very clear-cut who are the players that will not move in the window of transfers estival, but also who are the descartables. Xavi Hernández has done his list and the next meetings with Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff will be keys to find the pertinent solutions.

In the meantime, they increase the rumours of the next signings that will complete the Barça. Already they are 'tied' Andreas Christensen (Chelsea) and Franck Kessié (AC Milan), like free agents, but also argue other names. Robert Lewandowski (Bayern) is the main aim and will suppose an important outlay, but also sound players like César Azpilicueta (Chelsea), Marcos Alonso (Chelsea), Raphinha (Leeds United) or Carlos Soler (Valencia).
