The FC Barcelona and the Zenith of St. Petersburg arrived to an agreement so that Malcom turn into new footballer of the Russian team in return of 40 million fixed euros more other five possible in concept of variables. The traspaso is very beneficial for the Barcelona to level of income, but also forces to look for solutions to cover his course.

In the horizon, exist several alternatives to relieve to the Brazilian. Some of them would suppose to attend to the market for fichar to some footballer and others, more economic, would be home. Now it will touch them to the sportive direction and to the technical body decide of which way go to cover the course of Malcom. There are four options.

Tighten by Neymar

Neymar​ Wants to leave of Paris Saint-Germain to return to the FC Barcelona, but the operation is extremely complex and difficult to concretise . The French club will not yield neither an apex to facilitate the turn of the Brazilian to the Camp Nou and his signing hardly would go down of the 200 million euros, without explaining his enormous annual wage. It is the option more mediática and of greater performance to relieve to Malcom, but also the most complicated.

Fichar To a player of 'half class'

Another option that would suppose to attend to the market of traspasos would be to bet by a footballer of the nicknamed 'half class', that could assume a role of acting in front of the presence of players like Leo Messi, Ousmane Dembélé, Luis Suárez or Antoine Griezmann (with the permission of Philippe Coutinho, if it finish remaining). Given the bad experience with Kevin-Prince Boateng or Jeison Murillo, seems almost impossible that the club opt by this option.

Bet by the Masia

In the filial of the FC Barcelona, there are footballers that would give what went for having opportunities with the first team, and some of them would be options more than interesting. The most logical would be the one of Carles Pérez, that has completed two big parties of pre-season against Chelsea and the Vissel Kobe and has showed that deserves an opportunity. Abel Ruiz is another firm option to give the jump.

Reconvert to a player of the first team

Another economic option would be no fichar and bet for reconverting to some footballer to forward. Rafinha, if finally it does not leave this summer, has showed that works very playing in the right band, by what would be option for Valverde. Besides, polyvalent players like Sergi Roberto or Carles Aleñá could occupy the place sporadically with some guarantees.
