Quique Setién has faced his first key meeting as coach of Barça, and has already made some decisions. The catalans do not contemplate more exits in the first team and do not rule out signing a striker
Quique Setién has put the batteries to adapt to the FC Barcelona, that offers him a lot of challenges to which confront. The one of Santander has accelerated in his first days in the Camp Nou to know what before to his pupilos and to his surroundings, taking advantage of the help of the employees of the club and approaching from the first moment to the youngsters, to which has confirmed that will give space and opportunities in his changing room.
A key question to launch the new project was his meeting with the technical office, in which it made a study of the staff. After warning in the press conference of his presentation that had not had time for an analysis in depth, the Cantabrian seated with Éric Abidal and Ramón Plans, and with the contribution of the general director Òscar Grau and the president Josep Maria Bartomeu traced the plan of route.
According to the newspaper 'Sport', the first point of this summit remained resolved without giving detours, and concretised that they will not produce lower in the first team. The ex of the Real Betis arrived when already it had confirmed the cession of Carles Aleñá, precisely to Benito Villamarín, and although there was not too margin for the debate, also gave his seen well to the loan of Jean-Clair Todibo, that will finish the season in the Schalke 04.
Of this form, closes the door to the farewell of other footballers surrounded of rumours, as Arturo Vidal or Moussa Wagué. The two have offers to change of airs, but insisted in that the Chilean has to continue until next summer in spite of the efforts of the Inter of Milan, and everything aims to that the Senegalese could have minutes in the City Condal without need that pass six months to proof in another club.
The Barça thinks in the signing of a nine
A case aside is the possibility of fichar a nine to cover to Luis Suárez, that will be four months of drop after operating the right knee. The Uruguayan is a key piece in the diagrams barcelonistas, by what seems risked to launch to by LaLiga, the Champions and the Glass of the King without a spare of guarantees. Although it will lose what remains of course, the intention is not taking excessive risks.
The Barça no descarta attend to the market, but only habra shopping if the aim is apetecible and affordable. That is to say, that treat of a footballer of high quality and that it can be really useful for Setién, moving away in the measure of the possible of the case Kevin-Prince Boateng. If there are not reliable bets, will keep the wait that already scheduled until the window estival, and Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez will be the alternatives.
