THE ALTERNATIVES OF BARÇA
Barça, in search of its 'free' star signing
FC Barcelona has not defined its final strategy for the transfer market, but what is certain is that they will bet on players who are free agents. Leo Messi, Ilkay Gündogan or Iñigo Martínez are the names that have sounded the most to reinforce the squad
Auún Remain some months so that it begin the market of signings estival, but in the FC Barcelona have initiated to schedule the next season. Although the maximum priority is to recess the mass salarial to inscribe the agreements of the players that have renewed recently his agreements, in the club are attentive to the players that could reinforce the staff of Xavi Hernández.
The trainer egarense has asked five signings for the next season and would suppose a titanic effort for the club, by what from already will begin to look for formulas to be able to fulfil with the needs of Xavi. Thus, will have a lot weigh the players that finish agreement with his respective clubs in this summer and could recalar to the Spotify Camp Nou entirely free. They are varied those that are in the diary of the sportive direction and it will be necessary to see who could finish arriving:
Lionel Messi, the most expected return
Although it does some months seemed totally impossible, Leo Messi would be the signing that more to 'shot' would have the Barça as long as the Barcelona can do him space in his mass salarial. It finishes agreement with the Paris Saint-Germain the next 30 June and, for the moment, did not seem that it went to renew. In France have aimed that there is a 'divorce' almost definite and there are two versions: The one of the club, that aims that only they would extend his agreement if it accesses to a significant reduction of his wage, whereas the one of the player does reference to that expects sportive guarantees to follow. Something that, still, can not ensure him.
In the Barça have recognised that there are concrete approaches and that expect with the open arms to the footballer of 35 years, but everything will depend of the 'fair play' financial. Right now, it would be impossible, but in the weeks to come the sportive direction will present to LaLiga a plan of economic feasibility to future to see the options that 'help' with the limit salarial. It would be the 'movement' key for the culés.
Ilkay Gündogan, ideal reinforcement for the medullary
Xavi has asked, of insistent way, the signing of a mediocentro offensive and, although the favourite option is the one of Bernardo Silva, do not lose of sight to an Ilkay Gündogan that finalises his bond with the Manchester City this summer and still has not decided his future. His surroundings has kept meetings with the Barcelona leaders to transmit the interest of the club in his traspaso, but the international with Germany will expect at the end of season to take the final decision.
Has the option to remain in the Etihad Stadium, but in case that it bet by a change of airs the Barça would be one of his alternatives. Although has already 32 years, is a very valued player by the blaugrana by his quality and polivalencia, place can play so much of pivote as of interior. It would be key to give a jump of quality in the medullary, a zone that, right now, is quite plobada.
Iñigo Martínez, enclosed agreement?
Although right now in the staff there are four natural head offices, in the City Condal no descartan the incorporation of one more as long as it arrive like free agent. Iñigo Martínez, of the Athletic Club, is one of which more has sounded (although no the only). Everything seems to indicate to that will go out of Saint Mamés and recently informed that the Barça had reached an agreement for his incorporation, but is not confirmed.
Evan N'Dicka, another central that has sounded for the Barça
In front of the refusal to renew his agreement with the Eintracht Frankfurt, Evan N'Dicka has sounded with strength to reinforce to several 'big' of Europe from the summer, the picture culé between them. The central, of 23 years, is considered like one of the 'jewels' of the Bundesliga and seems more than ready for a new challenge to sportive level. It does months informed that it had given the "himself" to the Barcelona entity of face to the possible signing in the next campaign, but the Barça has not taken the definite decision on the traspaso.
Marcus Thuram, a '9' free
The son of the exazulgrana Lilian Thuram has sounded like an option to reinforce the attack culé, after from the Borussia Mönchengladbach announced that it will not renew his agreement and that already give him by stray to 100%. The Bayern of Munich, Inter of Milan and Athletic of Madrid are also interested in his incorporation, although his father has confessed in some opportunity that would love him that Marcus dressed sometime the T-shirt of the picture culé.
