Days backwards, Luis Suárez was taken part of the meniscus of his knee in an operation that will cost him be four months of drop, what means that it will lose the greater part of the season and that, when it receive the high medical, will not have rhythm of competition.

This Monday would have gathered the new technical body, headed by Quique Setién, and the sportive direction of the FC Barcelona to take the definite decision to go to by a '9' in January. According to the informations published by the newspaper Sport, Swindle Werner, forward of the Leipzig, is one of the alternatives of weight, since it gathers all the requirements that look for in the Camp Nou.

To his 23 years, the ariete German has turned into one of the big managers that the Leipzig was the current leader of the Bundesliga, since his 20 goals turn him into the maximum goleador of the competition, empatado with Robert Lewandowski, the 'killer' of the Bayern of Munich. His performance is being extraordinary and already carries a pair of seasons showing his big potential.

Curiously, the German press ensured during months that the Bavarian group had it done with Werner so that this incorporated to his discipline the past summer, but finally the operation cooled and did not consummate the traspaso. Something that gives wings to the options of the FC Barcelona to do with the services of one of the forwards that would ensure big performance of present and of future.

The clause of rescission of Werner is downward and, to day of today, would be fixed in 60 million euros. Nevertheless, the informations desveladas by Sport ensure that the most optimistic forecasts of the FC Barcelona​ foresee that it could finish going out of the Leipzig by 30 'kilos', a very affordable figure for a footballer of his quality.

It treats of a very swift player to the hour to throw desmarques, with good driving of balloon, good aerial game and a murderous instinct of face to goal that have elevated him between the best goleadores of Europe. His signing would not be at all simple, but treats of a very interesting bet if in the Barça find economic resources to tackle it.
