Alexander Isak arrived to the Real Sociedad this summer without doing too much noise by so alone 6,5 million pertinent euros of a Borussia Dortmund where did not have place. The Swedish, considered does a pair of years like one of the big promises of the European football, arrived to LaLiga to grow and begin to develop the enormous talent that saves inside. This past Thursday in Santiago Bernabéu graduated in an important appointment and showed that in him can have a '9' 'top' for a lot of years.

The tip 'txuri-urdin' marked two golazos against the Real Madrid in the elimination of the merengues in the quarter-finals of Glass. Isak Contributed enormously in the 3-4 with which his classified for the 'semis' with these two so many, an assistance and the shot that propició the goal of Martin Odegaard. In summary, a true exhibition of the tip, that marked another target that finish him cancelling by offside.

In what it goes of campaign, the Swedish carries already 13 goals between all the competitions in 27 parties contested, with alone 1.171 minutes played. In other words the one of Solna marks a so much each 90 minutes, an average of crazy for a player that has landed in LaLiga this course. To put in value what is doing Isak, comparing his numbers, for example, with Lautaro Martínez, star of the Inter of Milan and object of wish of the FC Barcelona, the Argentinian marks a target each 131 minutes. The one of White Bay carries in total 16 in 27 crashes, with 2.103 minutes, almost the double that the realistic.

The talentoso tip of alone 20 years was leaving big details and very good feelings in what it went of campaign, but his exhibition in the Bernabéu have been greater words. An able player to do what he did in front of the merengues is called to do big things in the world of the football. His clause of rescission is of 70 million euros for all, less for the Dortmund, that saved an option of repurchase by 30 'kilos' until 2021.

With a clause like this and taking into account that probably the donostiarras would access to negotiate by something less, the question is, why the Barça has not thought still in Isak? The culés look for '9' for already and also will do it in summer. The international Swedish fulfils with the requirements that look for the blaugrana for now and also of face to what will look for in summer. Alexander plays in LaLiga, has a potential tremendo; it is very complete; it can contribute from the first day, in spite of his youth; and besides it would not go out excessively expensive.

The Barça looks for '9' and Isak would be a big option

By some 40-50 million euros, perhaps the Real Sociedad access to traspasar to a footballer that cost them so alone 6,5 the past summer. With the conditions of the ex of the Dortmund, risk and pay this would have to be an obligation for any team that need a '9'. Lautaro Martínez is more fact, has margin of improvement and is one of the most complete tips of Europe, but would not go out of the Inter by less than 111 millions and could not arrive until summer. Isak Would cost probably the half and could arrive right now.

From his more than 1,90, the Swedish can seem clumsy and little coordinated, but the reality is that it is of the school of Zlatan Ibrahimovic. The 'txuri-urdin' is very agile, very coordinated for what measures, tremendously swift in career and very elegant in his movements. Has good individual technician and every time hits him better to the balloon, as it could check Areola this Thursday. Has still a lot of things that improve and his ceiling seems to be still far, but has paint that it can turn into one of the best '9' of the world if his progression follows like this.

With Kylian Mbappé, the own Lautaro or Erling Haaland, neither in Europe neither in LaLiga had spoken too much of the year of Isak in Donosti. After his partidazo against the Madrid, perhaps the things change and the big begin to look him with other eyes. With 20 years, with his conditions and with the numerazos that carries in the Real, Alexander deserves a lot of more attention. The FC Barcelona would have to pose seriously if bet by the talent of this Swedish of origin eritreo.
