The economic difficulties that crosses at present the FC Barcelona complicate seriously the possibilities of fichar in what it subtracts of January, even after having left vacancies two squares with the withdrawal of Gerard Hammered and the traspaso of Memphis Depay to the Athletic of Madrid. Even so, from the dispatches there are several folders on the table waiting for being able to concretise some operation in the next days.

The main obstacle estriba in the limits salariales in function of the 'fair play financial', what would prevent to an eventual new signing perceive a very high wage. However, from the technical body there is not desesperacion for incorporating players to the staff, Xavi Hernández has showed satisfied with the effective current and only considers that it is necessary to make some adjust on the fly of face to the rest of the season.

His ideal profile would be the one of a forward that can exert in the distinct demarcations of avant-garde and not to limit to the game by the centre or by the band, multiplying like this the possible combinations.

The míster is conscious of the fault of goal and of the dependency that has created around the figure of Robert Lewandowski, the one who has come loading almost with all the responsibility in the offensive section, fulfilling with the aim for which has been fichado, but also does fault more initiative by part of the rest of attackers culés. It is there where a reinforcement would seat him very well to the Barcelona team in winter.
