Barça is still looking for the replacement for Luis Suarez, and one of his favourites would be Rodrigo Moreno. The catalans must not make a mistake with the Valencia player, who is a great forward but not a striker
The FC Barcelona has accelerated in his research of the spare for Luis Suárez, and everything aims to that pretends to concretise a signing before it close the wintry window. The Uruguayan had to operate the knee does some weeks and will be of drop until the month of May, what leaves to the Catalans without an offensive specialist that does not have a natural relief neither in the staff of the first team neither neither in the one of the filial.
It does time that initiated the dance of names for the forward, and one of the favourites would be Rodrigo Moreno. The Hispanic-Brazilian would have been tanteado by the technical office and already would have given the 'himself want to', although the big obstacle would be the opposition of Valencia, that would not be had to leave to escape to one of his referents if they do not credit the 60 million euros that the past summer demanded to the Athletic of Madrid.
Obviously, and as it has signalled Quique Setién, the one of River would be an excellent incorporation, but there is an error that does not have to commit. It does already time that speaks of the heir of the charrúa, and in the long list of alternatives works with his own profile. An ariete powerful, with sufficient quality to combine with his mates and move by the bands but an expert in the area, with a high quota of goal.
The canterano of the Celtic of Vigo could fit without problems in the Camp Nou, but it is necessary to take into account that it is not a nine pure. In spite of his versatility and to that has occupied the majority of places in the front of attack, does time that does not play in the role that need the culés, of backs to door, litigating with head offices and giving back walls to give depth and spaces to Leo Messi and company.
In fact, in Mestalla is Maxi Gómez the one who occupies of these tasks, and are others the footballers that move by behind. Two clear examples for the Barcelona are Paco Alcácer and Antoine Griezmann, similar to the aim but at the same time very distinct between himself. Although the Valencian has showed to be able to lead a line with a lot of mobility -as in the Borussia Dortmund-, the three improve his provision if have a 'tank' at the side, that have fixed to the defences and that allow them move with greater freedom. This is the one who really would be useful.
Although the three can exert of tips, run the risk of 'drown' in front of rivals shut, because the aerial game is not his strong and his physical qualities invite to play to the space and no to a static position and thought to support to the rest. This situation already remained patent with the one of torrent, and although the one of Macon has known to win his space, it will be necessary to watch with the possible setbacks.
Rodrigo does not have to be a 'cap' in the planning of the Barça
If to Setién fits him Rodrigo in his systems, it would be necessary to do an effort, but does not be necessary to forget that the summer presents key signings. Leaving to a side that another extreme like Ousmane Dembélé will recover prompt and that also are Ansu Fati and Carles Pérez, the case Neymar still is not enclosed, and what is more important, with 60 millions less in box would do more difficult litigate by the big wish of the barcelonismo, Lautaro Martínez to the that the Inter of Milan does not pretend to give.
