The FC Barcelona is very attentive to the market of signings, and in the next months could have a lot of movement in the Camp Nou. In spite of the exit of Ernesto Valverde and the arrival of Quique Setién, the Catalans keep a planning that prioritises the rejuvenation of the first team, a task that will make trying not losing quality and thinking in struggling, season after season, by all the titles at stake.

In the design of the new staff it will be necessary to take into account again the contingents for non-EU players, that limits to three the number of footballers in these conditions that can find in the changing room. To free some gap, several stars could obtain the Spanish nationality after two years of residence in the country, but can not obviar the demora of the formalities and the particular cases, by what the ideal is that the sportive managers are very attentive to this peculiar puzle to be able to close his list of high and drops without setbacks.

To start with, to day of today there are two stars in this situation, one that aims to remain and another that could do the cases. It will be necessary to see which is his evolution with the new trainer, but Arthur (fichado in 2018) is Brazilian and occupies one of the squares reserved. To his 23 years, has left samples of quality and of a potential that could give a lot of joys, but has to be more regular and park the distractions. The another in these circumstances is Arturo Vidal (2018) a veteran with atypical profile that is shining in LaLiga. The Chilean is so good like volatile, and carries time presionando to be able to go to the Inter of Milan. In winter has the enclosed door, but it will be necessary to see which sucede to final of course.

This is the starting point of a played complex, and thinking in high, there is some that they could be immediate. With the goodbye of Jean-Clair Todibo, could arrive a promotion for Ronald Araujo, an Uruguayan that also landed in the Miniestadi in 2018. If the one of Rivera is supported by the 'greater' until June, would block any non-EU bet that could pose, and although now for the moment does not seem that it go to have contractings, some of the priorities of the window estival could bump with these restrictions.

If the one of Saint Joaquín leaves , there would be more margin of manoeuvre, but equally, the door of entrance is saturated. Doing a review brief of the priorities, appear two key names for the new project, that although difficult to achieve, are underlined in red in the diary barcelonista. Neymar And Lautaro Martínez are so expensive and complicated like necessary, and Brazilian and Argentinian, occupy square of non-EU. The one of Sao Paulo is called to be the successor of Leo Messi, and the one of White Bay likes like heir of Luis Suárez.

Shelving the list of rumours that always surrounds to the Barcelona, there are cases even more evident, as the one of those footballers that already are linked to the club and are calling the attention to the technicians. It does months that in Barcelona speaks of Emerson, that is growing to steps enlarged in the Real Betis and already looms the place of Nélson Semedo and Moussa Wagué. Another Brazilian at stake and more questions to study, because the ex of the Athletic Mineiro did not arrive to Spain until 31 January 2019.

The filial and the cessions complete the puzle of the Barça

The filial and the cessions could throw a hand to the Barça, but also is necessary to have his own limitations. FIFA Will limit the loans of footballers from the summer, although would have thought to do it in greater professionals of 22 years. The B offers also an exit for those promises that need foguearse before giving the jump, but neither possesses free bar and already has some contingents sealed.

Beside Araujo, García Pepper only has the Japanese Hiroki Abe like non-EU, but several signings that sound with strength could begin to fill these positions. In the wintry window has spoken of Matheus Pereira - Brazilian of the Juventus-, Matheus Fernandes -also Brazilian that it could finish directly yielded in the Celtic of Vigo-, Santiago Bouquets Mingo -Argentinian of Mouth Juniors- or Jun Nishikawa -Japanese of Cerezo Osaka-, that could arrive in the next months and complicate a puzzle that needs solutions.
