The winter market continues and Barça is considering any possibility. Now, Óscar's window has been opened thanks to his own agent, who has put him on the table in a meeting with the culé board
Each new reinforcement that go through the mind of the FC Barcelona has to carry out with 'lupa' owing to the 'fair play' financial. The economic weakness that has the organisation, added to his wide wages, have marked a guideline in the names that sound in the offices condales. So it is so in his majority have been players that are finishing his agreement so that they arrive to 'cost zero' or with pretences salariales quite discreet. Now, it seems that a veteran of the Superliga Chinese would be had to dress the elastic Barcelona.
This would be the case of Óscar, the ex Chelsea that is a member of the Shanghai Port of China, the one who as 'TNT Sports Brazil', would be wishing go back to Europe and would have offered through his agent to the Barça. It gives the circumstance that this information goes out to the light afterwards of the cession of Philippe Coutinho to the Aston Villa, the one who shares representative with the Brazilian.
Kia Joorabchian Would have put on the table the name of the midfield player in the negotiations that was supported by the managerial blaugrana to agree the loan of 'Cou', although his movement shows more than distant. The born in American has a cost, as 'Transfermarkt', of 18 million euros, and an agreement of 7.5 'kilos' net by season in his more recent extension of agreement until 2024. These figures would do unfeasible his landing in Catalonia because of the margin salarial of the club.
His signing does not mean a priority for the technical office of the institution, the one who still is centred in renewing to Ousmane Dembélé. The French is one of the most important players for the diagram of game of Xavi, in addition to that a new agreement would allow to the entity can adjust the impact of his wage this season to be able to make some incorporation more. In spite of this, the name of Óscar, of 30 years, is on the table, but would have to assume a big discount salarial if his intentions are to arrive to the Sportive City Joan Gamper.
The famous 'costs zero' of the Barça
Already Joan Laporta has had 'in the radar' to several veterans that could mark difference in the short term for the technician. Edinson Cavani Is one of them. His name was in hot during December, but with the rumours of Álvaro Morata in rise, his possible arrival has cooled . Also they have linked players like Andreas Christensen and César Azpilicueta of Chelsea. Both remain in freedom in June, but the conversations still are limited. Hardly they go 11 days of the start of the wintry market, but is safe that Laporta will have a 'ace under the sleeve' for the last week of January.
