It does some weeks that the FC Barcelona lost to Luis Suárez, and his offensive performance has remained dangerously touched. The culés, that already looked for an heir for the Uruguayan, have checked that this is an urgent need, because without a reference in tip, Leo Messi is very alone and the game is too predictable. The market of winter is about to to close, and there are several open negotiations.

One of the already enclosed conversations is the one who did reference to Ezequiel 'Chimy' Ávila, that will not finish in the Camp Nou. The one of Rosario, that does not do too much surrendered to the feet of his compatriot and considered him like an authentic "monster", lived a day to forget the past Friday, because in the duel between Osasuna and Raise in The Sadar, broke the ligament crossed previous of the left knee.

The hit is very hard for the youngster because it loses what subtracts of season, but even more because it sounded to dress of Barcelona. After despuntar in the Huesca and mudarse to Pamplona, had turned into one of the disclosures of LaLiga, in which it annotated nine so many and delivered three assistances in 20 commitments. Besides, also 'it wetted' in the Glass of Rey, in which it left his slat in two targets in two apparitions.

Several means ensure that the Argentinian appeared between the bets 'covered', by a series of virtues that turned him into an interesting alternative in the short term. His fault of experience in groups of maximum level remained buried by his capacity of superación, his ambitious and fighting character -seemed to the of the current '9' culé- and some characteristics like forward that include technical, work, fight and goal.

Also there was a key point that braked the offensive barcelonista, that now no longer can value it after an injury that will leave him in the dry dam around six months. His condition of non-EU did to doubt to the sportive managers because descartaba the possible promotion of Ronald Araujo, that will reinforce a payroll of head offices formed by Gerard Hammered, Clément Lenglet and Samuel Umtiti.

The Barça accelerates for fichar a nine

Although his agent negotiated with the Barça does hardly a week, the Catalans have made a fresh start and have centred in other signings. The wintry window has initiated his countdown, and do with a nine now could be decisive in the fight by the titles. Rodrigo Moreno is the favourite from does some days, but it will be necessary to see if they approach postures with Valencia and there is agreement before it arrive the month of February.
