The FC Barcelona went back of Saudi Arabia with several problems to resolve, and one of the most important is the drop of Luis Suárez. The footballer of Jump went through the operating theatre to correct his problems in the meniscus of the right knee, but the surprise jumped when they made public the final assessments. Although the operation was very and the feelings are positive, his absence will lengthen enough more than what expected .

The Uruguayan will not be able to help to the culés during the next four months, what means that practically it loses the season. If the forecasts of the doctors barcelonistas went perfect, would be back on 12 May, and it is necessary to take into account that the final of the Glass of the King is fixed for 18 April, the one of the Champions League is on 30 May and the last day of LaLiga the 24 of this same month.

In these circumstances, in the City Condal there is an open debate on the need of fichar a nine, that will have to resolve, with movements, or no, before 1 February. The market of winter offers a decisive opportunity for the Barcelona, that could cover his gap with an incorporation to half of course. Although there are reasons to do it, these are some of which could push to not to make it:

The reasons of the Barça for no fichar a nine


In spite of that it is evident that the Barça confronts to a delicate situation, also is it that has resources of guarantees. To his disposal is Leo Messi, the best player of the planet, but also a champion of the world like Antoine Griezmann that it will have to step forward. Of the same form, there is not better moment that this -although by an unexpected obligation- to check of which paste are done some of the young promises that begin to despuntar in the Camp Nou. Ansu Fati And Carles Pérez will have more minutes to develop his talent and help to his.

A light remodeling of the system also could help to go out of the step, and although the revolutions never are good to half of course, the pieces that at present offers the changing room have showed to handle well in a 4-4-2 flexible. That could be the ideal training to explode the connection between the Argentinian and the French, whenever there are not more useful ideas to squeeze all the quality that accumulates in the staff.

Few options

With the campaign begun, anybody wants to weaken, what does more complicated still find interesting options. The most usual are used to to be young for knowing or veterans that apuran his days of football, although in these circumstances, any one of the two profiles would have difficulties to confront to a challenge of so much level. It is not at all easy to do career in the Barcelona square, and much less like successor of Luis Suárez. Besides, if there was some star in advantageous conditions, the Catalans would not be the only that would go him behind.

Succession veraniega

Precisely, the need to take a decision meditada and without failures on the herederero of Suárez had postponed the signing until thesummer . This demora had a double slope, in the first place, sportive, because like this it allowed to evaluate in depth all the candidatures and choose the ideal relief for the charrúa; but also institutional, because it expects that his spare include a negotiation that could carry a time resolve. The hastes and the precipitation are not good advisers, what does to think that the best is to keep the planning as it was.


In the research of wintry opportunities, the most recent memory of the fans is not well, and calls Kevin-Prince Boateng. The today player of the Fiorentina did not cost too much and arrived yielded (1 million of euros by the loan and did not interfere with the planning), but although it turned into a surprising alternative that could result profitable, finish managing without penalty neither glory by the City Condal. A bunch of minutes and a file without goals or assistances showed that they do not suffice with quality, mentality and experience in LaLiga to play in the Barça.


What ruined the possibilities of the ghanés and also of many others is the fierce adaptation that supposes the change, and more if the destination is some so demanding and selective surroundings like the one of the Barça. No all are done to triumph dressing of Barcelona, and less with the obligation to do it immediately and without time to understand to the mates and the tasks that demand to the nine culé. The African already remained by the way, others like Philippe Coutinho did not achieve it in a year and half and the own Griezmann continues immersed in his own battle, by what seems advisable to take those that less better risks.
