At the beginning of the season, Barça is showing that the squad lacks the level to compete ... And in the Camp Nou offices they turn their radar back on

Calendar of FC Barcelona

If something has left clear this beginning of season 2021-2022, is that the FC Barcelona is not in the best possible level (very move# away of the expectations, even when these were more 'low' after the exit of Messi) and that there is not a player that, for the moment, mark the difference. The beginning of Memphis has been ilusionante, is true, but has 'sinned' for disappearing by moments and in front of the Bayern, in the most important crash, shined by his absence. In the club, as well as in the breast of the fans, the worry is maximum. And it is necessary to look for solutions.

In this last market of signings, the culés were forced to undo of a lot of players and at the same time fichar only to footballers like free agents, in addition to the cession of Luuk of Jong from the Seville. The investment was practically invalid because the financial situation of the culés is delicate and does not invite to the illusion by a good time, because the numbers are in red and, like this was a 'stick' to sportive level, the drastic decisions and thought from the institutional subject will have much more weight.

Nevertheless, between so much, the club needs to reinforce immediately, if they want to avoid that the catastrophe was still greater. Fulfil this aim will be difficult, because the economic situation does not allow to carry out millionaire operations. In fact, do an outlay already is a challenge for the culés and therefore it is impossible to think in players like Erling Haaland, that is the big dream of Joan Laporta and company, but yes footballers that are talentosos.

The challenge is to achieve a forward, mainly, because it is the sector of the area where has existed the 'bajón' more important, in what to quality refers . The name of Lautaro Martínez has sounded for the Barça from does a lot of time, because it is a player that the directors have wanted and that fits with the profile that needs the club. The player of the Inter, nevertheless, is very near to renew his agreement with his club and, save to surprise, will remain in Giuseppe Meazza a few years more.

The true is that his price of exit is fixed in around 90-110 million euros, as it has commented , but what 'prevail' is the intention of the Inter and of the same player to join his bows by more years. The 'hope' is that they do not achieve to arrive to an economic agreement, put the player always has wanted to earn more than what offer from the offices. In such a case, the Barça could take action and touch the doors of Giuseppe Meazza once again.

Other options for the Barça

An alternative that sounded for the FC Barcelona, during several months, went the one of Isak, forward of the Real Sociedad. The Swedish is one of the forwards with greater projection and talent in the Spanish football and a 'jewel' that wanted any team, but the big problem for the culés is that recently it renewed his agreement with the club 'txuri urdin' by five years more, until the 2026. His price, besides, surpasses the 90 million euros; a mount inasumible for the culés, but that equally evaluate in case of surprises.
