As if to the FC Barcelona did not be missing him problems, in all the senses, the club announced this Thursday that Ronald Araújo will have to go through the operating theatre in brief to treat a fracture in the second and third metacarpial of the right hand. The Barcelona have not given a time estimated of drop, but there is worry because the charrúa can lose a few parties with the culés. It came being a 'fixed' in the defence, like head office or launched to the right side and in both demarcations, as it accustoms, was a guarantee.

His drop is a vase of cold water for the Barça, Xavi Hernández and company, especially because Araújo came being the most reliable defender of the Barcelona, siriviendo besides like corrector for the errors of his mates. Of there that it result a sensitive drop for the Barcelona and that, as far as informs the newspaper 'SPORT', opens the window so that the Barcelona pose look for an unexpected solution.

In this moment, goes in in consideration that, in front of the possible exit of Samuel Umtiti in this market of winter and the drop of Araújo, the Barça will remain with four head offices: Gerard Hammered, Eric García, Clément Lenglet and Òscar Minguezto, the one who fulfils works by the bands. Xavi trusts the three above-mentioned, but would not be very satisfied.

'SPORT' Aims that the sportive direction of the Barça is posing carry out an incorporation to reinforce the defence of face to the second stretch of the season 2021-2022, in which the Barcelona will have to contest the Supercopa of Spain (the next week), LaLiga, Glass of Rey and Europe League. The ones of Xavi want to litigate to win it all and for this it is necessary to have players of quality.

The problem, as always, is the economic factor. It is not a secret for anybody that the Barça has a very delicate economic situation, surpasses his limit salarial and is battling to achieve the registration of Ferran Torres. Any signing to day of today sounds very complicated for the culés, unless they produce several exits (that they generate plusvalías) to have 'fair play' financial.

The two alternatives of the Barça

In any case, in the half before quoted explain that in the Barça study two options: conseguir a cession to the end of season or advance the investment that purportedly wanted to do the club to final of this course to reinforce the defence. For any one of the two alternatives, before is necessary to free mass salarial and generate income; something that, up to now, the picture culé has not achieved.

If the Barça decided to bet by an investment and signing, Matthijs of Ligt aims to be the 'chosen' of the culés, but is a traspaso that in nigún case will be economic. The Juventus has him a clause of rescission of 120 million euros and, although they would be had to negotiate and go down this price, is little likely that the Catalans can assume this cost.
