Many names are appearing on the scene as possible winter reinforcements for the Barça lead and the last one is Domenico Berardi, from Sassuolo
Quique Setién arrived to the FC Barcelona a day afterwards that the Catalan club confirmed that Luis Suárez will happen four months without being able to play because of the surgical intervention that practised him in the meniscus of his knee. The Cantabrian technician, beside his technical body and to the sportive direction, opened the doors to the arrival of a '9' this month of January since, without the Uruguayan, there are not specialists of area in the staff.
Rodrigo Moreno seemed the big favourite to be the new ariete of the FC Barcelona, since the Catalan entity had intense conversations with the Valency to be able to carry out the operation. However, the high requirements of the group 'che' finish shattering the arrival of the Hispanic-Brazilian of 28 years to the Camp Nou.
It is thus that the sportive direction would be studying alternative roads to satisfy the requests of the new technical -and, why not to say it, the needs of the staff- with a 'plan B' that do not suppose a too high cost but that it can fulfil the functions required until final of campaign, since in summer yes will be able to tackle important signings.
According to the informations published this same Wednesday by 'Tuttomercatoweb', Domenico Berardi, forward of the Sassuolo, is a name that has won strength in the breast of the FC Barcelona. In fact, said portal affirms that the contacts between both parts already would have initiated by the intervention of intermediaries and that said option wins strength.
Berardi is 25 years old and, in the present season, has achieved to annotate nine goals in the 17 parties contested. It is an attacker of similar profile to the of Rodrigo, since it knows to move well inside the area but also can act more hit to the right band, something that would give versatility to the Barcelona attack.
Value of market of 25 million euros
According to the famous portal web 'Transfermarkt', Domenico Berardi has a value of market of 25 million euros, a certainly affordable figure, considering besides the good relations between the FC Barcelona and the Sassuolo after operations like the ones of Marlon Santos or Kevin-Prince Boateng. By against, the Italian does not have experience in big clubs and would need to adapt to the football of LaLiga.
