The signing of a '9' in the present market of wintry signings has gone back question of state in the FC Barcelona. The injury of long length of Luis Suárez beside the alarming fault of goal that is showing the team of Quique Setién in the last parties would have intensified the research of formulas to reinforce the offensive plot.

But this month of January will not repeat the case of Kevin-Prince Boateng: the Barça wants to a goleador contrasted and will not conform with a half profile. Of course, for this need big economic resources: the quality pays and the goal, even more. Since, in these moments, the Catalan club does not have sufficient financial muscle as to face an important operation, contemplates the traspaso of players to increase the liquidity of the arks culés.

In fact, according to the program 'Tot Coast' of Catalonia Ràdio, the FC Barcelona would be trying tackle the sale of two important footballers this same month of January to have of effective for fichar. These two players would be Philippe Coutinho, that at present is yielded to the Bayern of Munich, and Ivan Rakitic, that no longer is indispensable for Quique Setién.

The case of the Brazilian midfield player is delicate: the Bayern already has communicated to the FC Barcelona​ that will not exert the option of purchase of final of season that was fixed in 120 millions. Thus, the entity blaugrana already looks for an exit to recover part of the 135 that cost when it arrived pertinent of the Liverpool although neither goes to be easy to find in so little time to a team that want him neither neither convince to the Bayern -that paid 8'5 millions by his cession- to leave him leave now.

In the case of Rakitic, the things neither would be easy to close his traspaso this same month of January, since the wish of the player would be to remain. In spite of this, it is necessary to remember that the Juventus of Turín follows very interested in the Croat and that the 'Vecchia Signora' would not be the only possibility for his traspaso. But, we reiterate, it will not be easy to close it before the Saturday.

The Barça, desperately

The sportive course of the FC Barcelona is beginning to concern. The team culé neither achieves to show a fluent game, neither attains to have defensive reliability and, besides, is costing him a world do goals. So much Quique Setién like the sportive direction have arrived to the conclusion that the arrival of a '9' could invest the negative dynamics, reason by which will throw the rest.
