The coronavirus has not stopped the planning of the FC Barcelona​, that already thinks in the season that comes. The Barcelona are at the expense of seeing how finish the present campaign and which impact will have this stop in the budget of the club for signings. There is fear that the culés can not move in the market as it would like them, but until it do not happen this crisis does not go to know with accuracy the magnitude of everything.

While, the Catalans are trying to decide what do with two players that already belong them, but whose future is an incógnita. It treats of Emerson, at present in the Real Betis, and Pedri, yielded in The Palms this course. Both footballers could have place in the staff of the next year, although there are some doubts, especially with the Brazilian. The case of the ex of the Athletic Mineiro is special and from the club go to have to choose which is the best option for him.

The carrilero will be of the Barça entirely free in 2021 by the agreement to the that arrived both teams when they delivered his rights the past winter. By this reason, if the blaugrana want to do before with him, will have to pay a compensation. As it aims 'Sport', that is the one who gives all this information, this fine would be of some 12 million euros. Paying this figure, the paulista would be barcelonista this same summer.

The main problem with Emerson is that it occupies square of non-EU, something that could condition the arrival of Neymar Jr or Lautaro Martínez, that are the two big aims of the Barcelona. Right now, Arthur Melo and Arturo Vidal occupy two of the three squares that each club has for foreigners. The Chilean seems that it will go , by what would remain two reserved for the one of the Inter and the one of the PSG. If one of the two did not arrive, then the culés yes could launch to by the bético, that would have free road.

Pedri Will do the pre-season with the first team

In the case of Pedri, from the club already would have decided that will do the pre-season to the orders of Quique Setién. The Cantabrian trainer will have to be the one who decide if the one of Tegueste is prepared to form part of the plantel of the first team or is better to look for him another cession. In the case that it leave , the options are that it remain in the filial, only if it rises to Second, that was another year more in The Palms or that go to a club of First. That it play in another Second that was not the B or the insular team seems complicated.

The Canarian talent carry all the year showing his quality in an important category like the Second Division, but does not be necessary to forget that it still has 17 years. With this age, the players what need is to play and not to remain all the year in the bench. In the Barcelona, although they go to go with almost total security Vidal and Rakitic, goes to have it very complicated to have minutes each week. Nevertheless, if Setién sees him with possibilities, will remain and will struggle by a place in the rotation beside other youngsters like Riqui Puig or Carles Aleñá, that seems that they will be important the course that comes.
