Calendar of FC Barcelona

Surprise in the FC Barcelona of face to the final stretch of the market of signings of winter. The Barcelona picture would be sopesando the idea to achieve new reinforcements in the last days of the window of transfers for 'complete' to the team, thinking in the dispute of the second turn of LaLiga and the Europe League. Xavi Hernández would be insisting to the directors, but to day of today the possibilities are very few.

As it has desvelado the newspaper 'SPORT', the trainer egarense has transmitted to the managers of the Barça that it is necessary to achieve two signings more before it finalise the month of January, especially after it confirmed the 'KO' of Ansu Fati, the one who will be out of the terrains of game by two months, apróximadamente. In this sense, Xavi would have requested to a goleador and a side that can play by both bands.

Álvaro Morata keeps on being the main candidate for Xavi, but from the offices of the Camp Nou resist to pay 40 millions by a player that is not the 'plan To' of the team on a long-term basis and, besides, would be practically impossible to inscribe it in the staff with so little timeframe, remembering that the club exceeds his limit salarial and has to generate a lot of income before registering in League to a new footballer. If it put on the table the option of a cession, the history could change, but for the moment the Juventus will not leave him go out if it does not have substitute.

The one of Terrassa, always according to the before quoted source, asks to a goleador "experienced and that it can acclimate to the team the fastest possible", that would be the case of the '9' of the selection of Spain. In any case, everything will depend on what happen in Turín. Likewise, 'SPORT' adds that the Barça studies several formulas to achieve to Morata, but all 'raisin' by the decision of Ousmane Dembélé in the next days.

A side, with urgencies

During the past week, the journalist Gerard Romero informed that the Barça was in plenary casting to achieve a left side and that on the table were the names of Alex Sandro (Juventus), Raphaël Guerreiro (Dortmund), Nicolás Tagliafico (Ajax), Alex Telles, (Manchester United) and Alfonso Pedraza (Villarreal). Of agreement to this information, the Barcelona entity only posed a cession to the end of season.

It is not a secret for anybody that in the left side is missing a player 'extra' that it can serve of replacement for Jordi Alba or that, even, can argue him the place to the of L'Hospitalet. It is necessary to remember that in this season has had to use to Sergiño Dest, Óscar Mingueza or Ronald Araújo as 'patch' when it has not been Alba, in addition to Alejandro Balde that has not settled in the first team.

However, in 'SPORT' go further, explaining that the intention of Xavi is that the Barça make an effort 'extra' and achieve a side that was left-handed, but also can serve of reinforcement for the right. It seems a situation complicated, because it has to have a low wage... And it will put to work to Meteu Alemany and company.
