Although it took some weeks in confirming news, the FC Barcelona has gone in with strength in the market of signings, and one of the key points in the reform of the staff is the forward. The strongest investment of the summer -for the moment- has been the arrival of Antoine Griezmann, by which credited 120 million euros to the Athletic of Madrid. After several months of reflection, the bet by the one of Macon could be sufficient.

As it aims 'Sportive World', the Catalans pose postpone the incorporation of a nine, a negotiation that has braked by several reasons. The main is that the offensive plot is very covered with several distinct profiles and that besides the champion of the world contributes the quota of goal that had thrown in fault in some parties, what has directed the sportive planning to other priorities.

If Ernesto Valverde does not demand it with urgency in some days, the acting of Luis Suárez will have to expect. The Uruguayan is 32 years old and is evident that needs a spare, but after studying several options and consider that they were too expensive -this perception left to Luka Jovic to shot of the Real Madrid-, does not want to fichar by fichar. The intention is to avoid that it repeat the case of Kevin-Prince Boateng, and will not bring to a player of filling that do not help to the of Jump as it is necessary.

While it looks for to the ideal relief for the ariete, the Barcelona will have an attack of a lot of carats, and marked, especially, by the versatility. With the charrúa like specialist in tip, there are polyvalent alternatives, a list that heads Leo Messi and that also fattens the own Griezmann. Both can act in all the positions of the forward, and even would fit in a 4-4-2. Also they will contribute from the bands Ousmane Dembélé, Philippe Coutinho and Malcom, that can move by the two sides and if they remain also will have of minutes.

Finally, also there are some reinforcements in the quarry, a way that to the Txingurri is him inviting to take although this prefer to be very precavido. It is evident that can not put to the perlas of the filial under pressure, but names like the ones of Abel Ruiz and Carles Pérez begin to sound in the trainings and through the Glass of the King could begin to show to the first team.

The Barça is very pending of the future of Neymar

In parallel to this postponement of the research of a nine, the Barça attends also to the opportunity that could him present with Neymar, a case complicadísimo but that it could finish with the Brazilian returning to the Camp Nou. Although the PSG does not go it to put easy, the surroundings of the crack is optimistic, and considers that the month of August could precipitate the negotiations between clubs and a discount in the requirements of the 'bleus', that want a barter to the that the culés would access but also a good bunch of millions that these do not pretend to invest.
