Joan Laporta confessed that Barça is working to get three or four extra incorporations and there are already clues as to what the president is looking for
The FC Barcelona moves index cards to reinforce the changing room of the first team and fulfil with the big aim that has traced the club: go back to reign in Spain and Europe, after two full seasons of disappointments. For this, the culés already have done with the traspasos of Eric García, Sergio Agüero and Emerson Royal, but in the offices of the Camp Nou want to more and like this has left it see Joan Laporta.
In an interview to 'The Avant-garde', the maximum Barcelona mandator recognised that "there will be 3 or 4 signings more" and that "go to do a very competitive team. Already we are it seeing with the incorporations of Eric García, Agüero and of Emerson and of other players that are ready", some statements that seeded the doubt in the barcelonismo regarding the names 'remaining' that will reinforce to the Barcelona group from the next season.
The true is that Laporta has desvelado that to the Barça him 'escaped' a player (Wijnaldum) in hands of the Paris Saint-Germain but will not be an obstacle to follow stepping strong in the window of transfers of this summer, that has all paints it to be very moved for the culés, so much with the incorporations as with the imminent exits.
Like this then , reading between the lines of the statements of Laporta to 'The Avant-garde' remain to ask: Which are these signings and how goes to fund them the club?, remembering besides that the financial situation is very delicate and that the club needs to reduce costs (and wages) to follow to float. In any case, already there is idea of who would be these traspasos.
The Barça is in the research, mainly, of a left side that can serve of competition for Jordi Alba and serve of spare for Junior Firpo, the one who has not given the size and is very near to do his cases and abandon the club. They have sounded, up to now, the names of José Luis Gayà, of Valencia, the one who esel favourite of the Barça, but also the club handles other options like Robin Gosens or Nicolás Tagliafico.
On the other hand, also it is the urgent need to achieve a central left-handed, although there is 'overbooking' in the defensive saga, with until six head offices to disposal of Koeman. The same raisin in the forward, with eight players: Messi, Memphis, Griezmann, Dembélé, Trincao, Ansu Fati, Coutinho and Braithwaite. In these two sectors of the field, will depend the exits of this summer.
A midfield player: the big priority
After the 'sapling' of Georgino Wijnaldum, the Barcelona trainer Ronald Koeman has been asking to cries the signing of a midfield player with the same profile of his compatriot. The Dutch asks a mediocentro quesea powerful, with route and arrival to the area, but also with good technician to be able to guarantee the exit of balloon. It wants to 'retort' to Wijnaldum, but will be very difficult to achieve a player like this and that it was, besides, 'low cost' or directly free.
