Barça has to do its homework in the transfer market, and its plan would be almost outlined. The catalans will focus on sales before facing negotiations for two key targets
The season 2019-20 has not been easy for the FC Barcelona, but the market veraniego of signings will be even more difficult. The Catalans have not been to the height neither in the sportive neither in the institutional, and this, among others factors, has caused that they escape the Supercopa of Spain, the Glass of Rey and LaLiga. With the Champions League turned into last bullet to save the course, already there are movements to reform the project.
Josep Maria Bartomeu has been clear in several interviews and has admitted that after the crisis of the coronavirus, the club can not do madnesses. The global budget aimed to a record figure of 1.100 million euros, but the problems derived of the pandemia will go down it until near of 800. In these circumstances touches to concern to generate more income and measure a lot the efforts that translate in millionaire costs.
Although the culés have to do the contrary of what need, already have outlined an interesting planning. Lamentably, in this window estival expect more news by sales of players that by incorporations of stars, although the bet of the sportive managers, if concrete with restraint, can be promising. In these moments contemplate several exits and two key arrivals.
The planning of the summer of the Barça
In the changing room of the Barça there is very few that have his future ensured, and the pending renewals advance to lower rhythm. In the last months there have been gains with the farewell of Carles Pérez (11 million euros), Marc Cucurella (10) and Arthur (72+10 in variables), an agreement that to his time ended in the contracting of Miralem Pjanic. But with the hole in the accounts, sure that there will be more.
In the City Condal there is a group of players that have hanged the poster of transferibles. Martin Braithwaite and Rafinha Alcántara are between them, and also Jean-Clair Todibo that it could not being evaluated by the technicians because it can leave a lot of money in box. The Premier League is calling to the door of the three, and also to the one of Philippe Coutinho to the that if it achieves plant, will obtain an excellent attainment, no only by the difficulty of the company, but because his assessment, very high, would mean embolsarse a good quantity of millions.
Besides, there is another selection that is subject to several conditions, although neither it would say no to an offer convincente. The clearest cases are the ones of Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti and Junior Firpo, although the two first keep that they do not want to change of airs and the second depends on a pact with the Inter of Milan. The Croat is slope of the Seville and of the Arsenal, to the French pretends him give exit with a sale or conveyance with option to buy, and the Hispanic-dominican is complicated in the 'operation Lautaro Martínez'.
Less clear is what sucederá with Ousmane Dembélé and Nélson Semedo, that go up and go down in the quinielas according to the day. The month of August could dictate sentence because the one of Vernon is conditioned by the recovery of his carousel of injuries and the one of Lisbon could be a big source of income or another promising piece for a barter. Both aim to remain , but his goodbye would not suppose a surprise.
The Barça already has tied several incorporations, although it has to define the way of some perlas. Miralem Pjanic Arrives to be headline, and Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig and Ronald Araújo will rise definitively to the first team, beside Carles Aleñá that goes back of the Real Betis. Matheus Fernandes Will return also after a loan with few opportunities and aims to a new cession, and with Francisco Trincao and Pedri it will be necessary to take decisions. Given his youth and the need to adapt , could remain or foguearse a time in another club. In the recámara keep canteranos like Monchu, Álex Hill and Juan Miranda, that could rise or be yielded or traspasados with option of repurchase.
The big names of the summer of the Barça are Lautaro Martínez and Eric Garcia. It will be necessary to expect to that between the month of August to give the hit of grace, when it finish the participation of his teams in Champions and Europe League. The throw and slackens by the forward would have to resolve with Junior and some extra millions, and the decision of the central will be determinant to see if it attains to leave the Manchester City. They are not descartadas more operations, but these are prioritarias and afterwards will consult if they do fault more retouchings or if the exchanges allow to tackle impossible like which supposes for the moment the return of Neymar.
