Arthur Cabral sounded a few weeks ago as one of Barça's main alternatives to reinforce the forward, but from the club they would have lost interest
It does some weeks, the forward of the Basilea Arthur Cabral aimed like one of the options of the FC Barcelona to reinforce the staff in the market of wintry signings, put his available price (15 or 20 million euros) and his quality called the attention of the Barcelona. It is a 'killer' and his smell goleador is being key for the Swiss group, by what split like an option for 'solve' the drought of goals in the Barça. However, the operation has lost strength.
Xavi Hernández had given his seen well and the player was in knowledge of the interest of the culés, but the economic factor was being the main obstacle for the Barça, because there is not 'cash' to go outto the v entana of transfers and all the operations complicate too much by the rule of the '1 to 4' of LaLiga, that establishes that by each four euros freed, will be able to invest one in the registration of a new footballer. The Basilea, by his part, was not position to put eases, in no case. Yes they go to listen offers by him in the beginning of 2022, conscious that in the end of the season 2022-2023 wins his agreement, but the intention is to take out money of the operation.
The case is that now it adds a new factor and, to day of today, seems that the interest of the Barça has banished . 'SPORT' Has aimed that, after the initial contacts, the conversations between the Barcelona and the surroundings of the Brazilian have remained in 'standby'. The main reason is that Cabral "has not happened all the filters" and that from the club do not see that his incorporation can be so beneficial as it painted in a principle.
In the meantime, the Barça follows closely his development with the Basilea, that is being very resaltante. It registers 25 goals in 26 parties (14 in the Super League of Switzerland, 8 in the round of classification to the Conference League and 3 in the tournament like such). During the month of August, against the Servette FC, annotated a 'póker' and since has been missing very few times to the appointment of the goal with the Swiss picture. It is necessary to highlight, besides, that has delivered eight assistances to date.
Ferran Torres keeps on being the main option
It does not know if the fault of interest in Arthur Cabral is directly related to the efforts that are doing from the FC Barcelona to achieve the traspaso of Ferran Torres from the Manchester City, but everything seems to indicate to that the club has done cleaning in his list of interests. The ex of Valencia is, of far, the main aim of the Barcelona, but also the most complicated.
The City has closed, one and again, the doors to the Barça, although they will not put obstacles to negotiate. This yes, with his conditions. In the Etihad Stadium only pose the exit of Ferran Torres if ingresan some 70-80 millions, a figure inalcanzable for the culés. They have said 'no' to a cession to the end of season and also to an option of barter, because from the Camp Nou only have offered to 'descartes'.
