Until it does some weeks, was put of full in the fight by the titles, but the FC Barcelona has seen forced to look to the market of signings ahead of time. The crisis of the coronavirus has struck of full to the world of the football, and with the season detained until further notice, the Catalans have intensified the work of planning. In the enormous puzzle to the that it is necessary to face up already exist some certainties.

In spite of that still there is a lot of incógnitas for resolving, the culés have clear that the strategy of a short staff no longer serves them. Like this they justified in the last times the limitations in some plots, doing reference, besides, to that this preferred it Ernesto Valverde. The plagues of injuries and the recent problems have disassembled this bet, that has found more obstacles that force to desactivarla.

Thinking in all what have to face, the Barcelona would do well in building a deep team and of guarantees, since the calendar to short-half term has elevated his difficulty.

If they do not find a half point between delivery and rest, will finish them the petrol, his performance could go down and the physical mishaps will reappear.

The Barça B also is another piece of the puzle

Ernesto Valverde complained in some occasions that it was difficult to do place to the canteranos with too many stars in the first team, and in spite of his will to bet by the youngsters, the Cantabrian has shared his point of view. In the stage that shows in the horizon, there will be more space for the rotations, and will touch to combine the opportunities so that all are motivated, frescos and engaged with the cause.
