They remain less than two weeks so that it close the market of traspasos wintry and the FC Barcelona has decided to sign to a leading centre of level contrasted -descartando totally the medianías to the style Murillo or Boateng- to relieve to the lesionado Luis Suárez, that will not be available to play until the month of April in case that they fulfil the most optimistic forecasts.

Of course, it treats of a complex operation, since the clubs are used to to be reacios to leave go out to his best footballers to half of season unless they receive offer multimillionaires. A possibility that in the FC Barcelona can not carry out since the available economic resources for this month of January and the obligation to square the accounts of the present economic exercise do not allow a significant cost.

Up to now, they have appeared names like the ones of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (Arsenal), Swindle Werner (Leipzig), Rodrigo Moreno (Valencia) or Lautaro Martínez (Inter of Milan). From among them, without place to doubts, the Argentinian is the favourite by quality and projection, but the most affordable option -and, maybe, the only realistic for this wintry period- is the one of the valencianista.

Any of these four names that stir would go down of the 50 million euros (in the case of Lautaro, in front of an Inter that does not want to neither hear speak of traspaso, the payment of the clause would go out by 111 million euros), some figures to which the Barça could not arrive unless pactase an alternative formula that already has seen in some occasion: a compensatory conveyance with option to buy.

The Barça could apply the 'method Mbappé'

For putting an example, in 2017, Paris Saint-Germain finish to face the traspaso of Neymar, but also wanted to do with the services of Kylian Mbappé, that then played in the Monaco. Carry to the frances by means of another traspaso millionaire was impossible by the rule of the 'fair play' financial, by what the Parisians pactaron with the monegasque a cession of a year with a compulsory payment to final of upper season to the initial request. Like this, it attained advance his arrival.

The fact that the 'case Mbappé' sucediese in summer did that all was easier that what the Barça will have it in winter with the planning of the teams closed, but is a road to explore with players that interest of face to the future. The culés would have proposed this method to Valencia by Rodrigo, but also could try with Lautaro compensating in summer with an upper price to the 111 million the clause.
