The coronavirus could change the football as it knows him from does years. The stop caused by this illness has forced to a lot of clubs to tighten the belt in front of the fault of income and the next market of signings could suffer the consequences of this economic crisis. The big could not having the same money that of habit to complete his sportive planning and this could do that they look for alternative.

As it signals 'Sportive World', one of these options would be to explore the market of free agents. A lot of 'cracks' and interesting players finish agreement this summer and would arrive to cost zero to the team that attained to convince him. Footballers of the size of David Silva, Willian Borges, Pedro Rodríguez, Olivier Giroud, Jan Verthongen, Edinson Cavani or Dries Mertens could leave free his teams to final of course and would be signings to take into account by any one.

In key FC Barcelona, there are several names in concrete that they could go in in the plans of the entity. The club is looking for a '9' of level and wants to Lautaro Martínez, that is the big favourite. But in the case of not being able to arrive to an agreement with the Inter of Milan and not having money to do this signing, Cavani could be a big idea in the short term. The charrúa, in spite of his 33 years, the same that Luis Suárez, still has goals to give and give, and would be a big solution until being able to fichar to a forward with more future like the 'neroazzurro'. Dries Mertens, that carries playing of 'false 9' several years, would be another candidate, although it does not seem to be the profile of tip that look for the blaugrana.

The Barça also this looking for central and in this list of free agents there are two names that could be interesting. One is the one of Jan Verthongen, international Belgian and still player of the Tottenham. The polyvalent defender also can play of left side, by what would kill two birds of a shot. Has a good exit of balloon, carries years surrendering in the elite and his age, 32 years, invites to think that it still has a pair of years or three to good level. Thiago Silva, of the PSG, would be another alternative of level, although it is three greater years and this, beside his wage, throws for backwards to the culés.

The Catalan team also wants an extreme with desborde and only thinks in Neymar Jr, but the Brazilian could be impossible by the economic subject. The PSG will ask around 150 millions, a quantity almost insalvable in front of this crisis, and besides the wage of the 'crack' is too high. If the '10' Parisian was not possible, Willian could be a similar alternative to the one of Cavani with Lautaro. The one of Chelsea will fulfil 32 years in August, but still is to good level and has football to surrender well a pair of years more as little. It is not a big star like Ney, but yes a big player with dribbling and with a lot that contribute. The same that Willian, his mate Pedro could be another interesting option that besides knows the house. The Canarian, this yes, has a year more and has lost bellows this last course.

Two good sides in the market of free agents

Finally, the Barça also looks for left-handed side and would not do him disgusts to a carrilero right-handed. Junior Firpo could not following and in this case Jordi Alba would need another acting. Kurzawa Finishes agreement with the PSG and would be a big solution to short and long term, since only it has 27 years. The French is a consistent player and if it needed save in this signing would be an ideal candidate. In the right, the culés have doubts with Nélson Semedo and Sergi Roberto, by what the option of Thomas Meunier, also of the PSG, would not be at all badly. It is not a star, but has depth, in defence fulfils and still has 28 years, by what could be in the club several seasons.
