FC Barcelona is going through a complicated economic crisis that limits all Barça's options in the market ... but the club has several players on its radar

Calendar of FC Barcelona

It does less than two months finish the market of signings of summer and already the clubs are thinking in his next incorporations. The FC Barcelona is not the exception and, in spite of the delicate economic crisis by which crosses the club, from the offices of the Camp Nou keep lit the radar for 'attract' players of face to the future, already was in January or in July. It will be complicated, as they have desvelado from the cub, that can achieve 'cracks' in the short term, but if they do the duties, yes could arrive some that another player, as long as it fulfil the rule of the '1 to 4' of LaLiga.

The rule establishes that if a team exceeds his limit salarial, as it is the case of the Barça, will have to govern by the above-mentioned rule, with which by each four euros freed, the club can invest one for the registration of a footballer. That is the formula that the culés will have to follow, with the warning that the 'excess' of the limit will subtract in the next season. Of there to that each movement have to study with a lot of detenimiento. In any case, are varied the players that have related with the Barcelona entity. The club can not achieve all the traspasos, reason by which review the situation of each one of them and the possibilities that recalen in the Camp Nou:

The big options for the goal

André Onana has been one of the guardametas that has related with the Barça in the last months. The Cameroonian has agreement conel Ajax until the summer of 2022 and already has decided that it does not go to renew his agreement, reason by which will change of team in condition of free agent. The Barcelona picture has sounded like one of his alternatives, but everything aims to that fichará by the Inter of Milan. In fact, at the beginning of this month, the skilled journalist in the market of signings, Fabrizio Romano, aimed that "the Inter has arrived to a verbal agreement with André Onana from the past month of July. It is smart to join like free agent in 2022. The agreement still has not signed , but is in the final stages".

In any case, from the City Condal understand that it is necessary a guardameta, knowingly that Net Walled has asked to go out of the club (could leave in the summer, but from the offices 'braked' any option because there was not replacement) and because Marc-André ter Stegen is very far of his best level. Although the German keeps on being a referent and has saved to his in a sinfín of opportunities, is far to go in between the 'top' of goalkeepers in the actuality.

It is thus that has sounded a second option for the three sticks of the Barça: Luis Maximiano, of the Granada. The Portuguese has agreement with the 'nazaríes' until the summer of 2025 and a clause of rescission of 25 million euros. 'Sportive world' desveló does some days that the guardameta of 22 years is in the diary of the Barcelona. This season, his first in Spain, has played seven parties, with six goals fit and leaving the goal in zero in two opportunities.

Reinforcements in the defence?

If there is a sector in the field that generates headaches, is in the defensive saga. The culés have not achieved to arm a solid defence and, especially, regulate. In the left side is where there are more problems, because Jordi Alba is the only player 'natural' for this position, in addition to the canterano Alejandro Balde. That's why in the last windows of transfers has related to the club with several sides, but José Luis Gayà keeps on being the 'favourite' for the Barcelona.

The captain of Valencia has been an aim of the Barça from does some time, but always has showed willing to be followed in Mestalla. His agreement wins in the 2023 and already has initiated conversations with the club to sign a renewal, but do not have 'filtered' the advances of the same. What himself has remained clear is that from the City Condal are very attentive to his situation and that, if there is opportunity, the culés go to go to by him.

In research of reinforcements in the medullary

For the moment, there is not anybody in the staff that can contest him the titularity to the 'fixed' of Ronald Koeman: Frenkie of Jong, Sergio Busquets and Pedri González, in addition to the youngsters Nico González and Gavi. The Barça wants to have more options in his staff and therefore they have sounded three names, although they are operations complicated: Paul Pogba, Denis Zakaria and Frack Kessié. In the case of the French midfield player, is the one who more likes, but also the costliest. Pogba Has agreement with the Manchester United until the 2022 and has not renewed. The economic subject has braked the negotiations, because he wants to earn more than what offer from the club. The Paris Saint-Germain or Real Madrid are very attentive to his situation, whereas from the Camp Nou understand that they could not go to the 'war' by Pogba.

With Zakaria, the situation is different, but also complicated. It finishes his agreement with the Borussia Mönchengladbach in the summer of 2022 and already has left clear to the club that will not renew, but the Barça is not his first option, is it the Rome of José Mourinho. In fact, it has commented that the Italians have intensified his interest in the last week and that present like the main option for the footballer of 24 years. If the Barça wants it, will have to act very rapido.

Also it has 'colado' in the list of interests Kessié, midfield player of the AC Milan. It is another of the footballers that finish agreement in 2022 and by which there will be 'war' in the market. The Real Madrid wants it, because it sees him like a replacement for Casemiro, but has related from before with the Barça. His polivalencia in the field (can play of mediocentro, pivote or steering wheel) and capacity to visit the terrain to his antojo situate it like one of the most stood out means of the actuality and the wish of several 'big' of Europe.

The options for the Barcelona forward

Although in the staff there is a big quantity of attackers, the reality is that the Barça wants players of big quality that can counter the fault of goal that is having the team. In the last weeks, have sounded a sinfín of names to reinforce to the Barcelona, but especially: Dani Elm, Raheem Sterling, Edinson Cavani and Alexarder Isak.

Dani Elm appears like the big candidate to reinforce the Barça, remembering that the culés already tried ficharlo in the straight final of the market of signings of the past summer, but the RB Leipzig asked 70 million euros, a figure inasumible for the culés. In the next window, will go back to try, because they dream with carrying him of return to Can Barça, where gave his first steps like footballer in the quarry.

Raheem Sterling has been another of the players that has sounded to reinforce the forward of the group directed by Ronald Koeman, because it does not have hollow in the Manchester City and would not have intention to renew his agreement with the 'citizens'. Nevertheless, from England do not go it to leave go out by a price 'accessible' and it is necessary to remember that it is one of the three better players paid of the Premier League... It can assume this the Barça?

The last day of the market veraniego related to Edinson Cavani with the Barcelona entity and went a 'bombazo' that was very far to produce , because the charrúa never had intentions to leave of the Old Trafford. Now, with agreement until 2022, sounds like an option to reinforce to any team, included the Barcelona picture, because it is a '9' very effective. Nevertheless, it is necessary to take in account that already has 34 years.

Alexander Isak always has been an option for the Barcelona, but his agreement with the Real Sociedad, recently renewed until the season 2025-2026, is a big inconeniente, although the Swedish has left a pair of times his future in the air. Without going more far, in a recent interview offered to 'Fotbollskanalen', was questioned on if it thinks fichar, in a future, fichar by a team that contest the Champions League and aimed that "the thoughts can fly", matizando afterwards that "it is not so realistic, so I do not give him too much importance".
