Josep Maria Bartomeu has been honest in an interview, in which he has admitted that signing Lautaro Martínez and Neymar is very difficult for Barça. These are the solutions that the catalans could use for their 2020-21 team

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona follows working in his sportive planning, and does not go it to have at all easy in the next market of signings. The crisis of the coronavirus has struck with hardness the budgets, that have happened of rondar the 1.100 millions to recess until the 800. This has braked in dry the longed for and necessary revolution in the staff, that will have to manage through the containment of cost and the exchanges of players.

Josep Maria Bartomeu has gone back to admit in an interview that, in these circumstances, Lautaro Martínez and Neymar are almost impossible. The negotiations with the Inter of Milan have postponed to the end of the Champions and the Europe League because the Italians follow asking almost 100 millions by the Argentinian, and neither paints well the panorama with the Brazilian because the PSG not even is opened to barters. The two cracks are decided to dress of Barcelona, but if there is not sufficient money, could not sufficing only with this.

Further of the reform that is affecting to other lines, is evident that the leading culés needs an impulse. Leo Messi and Luis Suárez follow throwing of the car, but the age does not forgive and every time accuse more the efforts made in the last years, especially, since the one of Sao Paulo fugó to Tie it 1. To reactivate to a group that is marked by the game of possession and the offensive character, the managers barcelonistas will have to play it with other solutions if they can not achieve to his aims prioritarios.

The solutions for the forward of the Barça


To start with, the Barça will have to decide if it will expect to Lautaro and Neymar or if it will bet definitively by other footballers. In 2021 it expects that the financial recovery have begun, if it is that, once and for all, the sanitary authorities achieve to put control to the pandemia and, between other questions, resurrect the income that generates the public that for the time being can not visit the Camp Nou. In next summer, if the ex of the Saints has not renewed his agreement, could be to shot, and the one of White Bay will be able to exert more pressure on the 'nerazzurri'.

A priori, the bands are very covered between the cracks that there is and those that come, but the case of the nine is very delicate. Suárez encourages for taking care but the knee does not give respite him, and already has showed that his profile can not cover it anybody in the current changing room. Antoine Griezmann or Martin Braithwaite could try it, but the French is lost in his own problems of adaptation and the Danish, after converting a year more in another patch of emergency, could be traspasado or yielded to recover the investment.

With these conditionings on the table, the urgent option and 'good, beautiful and cheap' could be Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. The one of Laval is 31 years old, but finish agreement in 2021 and is not decided to accept the extension that proposes him the Arsenal. It knows that his virtues could explode them the Catalans and that if it keeps his level two or three years could be an ariete bridge until Lautaro was more to shot. This would be a solution in the recámara, but it is necessary to value all the alternatives so much for the tip of attack as for the sides.

Players already hired

For the moment, the club seems decided to give exit to the quoted Braithwaite and to Philippe Coutinho, but neither would be necessary descartar others. Messi, Suárez and Ansu are armoured, Griezmann neither seems that it go to leave and the looks centre in Ousmane Dembélé, because if it arrives a good offer could do the cases -yielded or traspasado-, and if it could not have a last opportunity to claim .

In a long campaign and again with a calendar tightened, the challenge will be to manage well the minutes, but there are promising solutions. In principle, Messi will follow leading to the team from the right band, but also can contribute solutions like half tip or false nine. Suárez will keep like specialist in tip and Ansu is used to to split from the left. Have a Dembélé recovered would be key, since if it is in shape, the one of Vernon has showed that it can be very useful contributing desborde and generating goals and assistances. If Quique Setién does not move away of the 4-3-3, although it bet by variants like the medullary in rhombus, Griezmann could be useful as half tip or second forward.

To reactivate the disequilibrium, desborde and one against one that the Barça so much misses, the weapon could be Francisco Trincao, that to his 20 years has mental fortress and sufficient potential as to start with to test in the first team. The pre-season will determine if the most convenient is a cession, but observing his performance in the Sporting of Knickers, could help in what it put a foot in the City Condal. So much he like his trainers warn that his ideal position is the one who occupies Messi, but he same signals that if it has to move, will not doubt in doing it with such to benefit to the community. Pedri, as it already did Iniesta, could act as false extreme, but his place has to be in the medullary.
