In what to sportive preferences refers, Lautaro Martínez keeps on being the striker that more consensus generates in the sportive direction of the FC Barcelona
Although Ronald Koeman has the clear preference by Memphis Depay to reinforce the forward of the FC Barcelona, was this winter or of face to the next season, the true is that in the sportive direction follows the favouritism by Lautaro Martínez, a 'nine' pure that generates more consensus and is younger, with distinct characteristics to the ones of the Dutch talent.
The two are big players, but to sportive level believes in Can Barça, at least to day of today, that Lautaro would fit better given the needs of the team. Braithwaite Is the one who is acting for now of 'nine', and with a clear reference in the front of attack the Barça is playing better, marking more goals and giving more show. The Danish, in fact, already has been able to annotate five targets.
The big difference is that the signing of Depay can arrive to a very reasonable price this same winter, between 5 and 10 million euros, whereas to Lautaro Martínez the Inter of Milan will not leave him leave easily. His hypothetical arrival to the Barcelona would be much more expensive that the one of the French, independently of which are the real needs of the staff.
Another name that likes a lot is the one of Haaland, although his arrival is still less likely that the one of the Argentinian due to the fact that all Europe walks after him. His signing could be an ace in the sleeve for Joan Laporta, although the own precandidato already desmarcó in some interviews, ensuring that it did not want to speak of proper names in the market of signings.
Taking into account the difficult economic situation that crosses the club, besides, fichar to Haaland or to Lautaro would not be viable unless it produce some exit or sale of big calado in the Barcelona staff. If Leo Messi decided to do the cases, for example, could face from the economic point of view a movement of similar characteristic.
If Messi remains , Depay is more likely
But if it remains , something that expects the big majority of the barcelonismo, the signing of Depay antoja much more affordable in spite of not being what needs exactly the Barça to follow shining in attack, at least according to the sportive direction culé. Koeman Knows him to perfection, has confidence in him and his talent already has been showed sobradamente with Holland and the Lyon, leaving destellos previous in the Manchester United and the PSV Eindhoven. The time will say who is the elected... Or it can that they finish arriving the two, sooner or later?
