More than ever, the FC Barcelona needs to find a forward contrasted for apuntalar his staff. This Friday, Luis Suárez has been presented with the Athletic of Madrid and the group of Ronald Koeman has remained without a goleador contrasted in his rows. Martin Braithwaite is the only '9' natural of the team and, for satisfy, is considered transferible by part of the club.

To all this, it is necessary to take into account that, in spite of the big saving that the FC Barcelona will have in index cards after the goodbye of Arthur Melo, Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic, Nélson Semedo and the own Luis Suárez, hardly have ingresado 45 million euros in sales if we explain to Miralem Pjanic like part of the payment by Arthur. It is thus that there is not too money for fichar in spite of that need until three players.

The golazo that marked Mandzukic to the Real Madrid

The FC Barcelona needs a central (likes Eric García), a side (like Sergiño Dest) and a leading centre (Memphis Depay is the favourite in front of the impossible dream of Lautaro Martínez)​. The problem is that the economic precariousness of the club in period of pandemia makes impossible that they can arrive the three, reason by which the club studies that the place of '9' can be occupied by a veteran player that arrive to low cost.

The difficulty to move by the market does that the teams are much more hermetical of what already were to the hour to sell players, reason by which costs to find to a footballer that offer guarantees and that do not suppose an important cost. Nevertheless, in the market of players without team find to a 'jewel' that it could be an alternative more than interesting: Mario Mandzukic.

The Croatian forward remained free after breaking the agreement with the club catarí To the-Duhail, reason by which would arrive free to the FC Barcelona. Besides, his index card that would perceive would be from among three and four million annual euros, very inferior to the one of Luis Suárez and, therefore, affordable for the club. According to the informations published by 'Calciomercato', from the Camp Nou study said possibility, although Lokomotiv of Moscow, Rome and Fiorentina also want to sign him.

Mario Mandzukic: experience and quality

Mario Mandzukic is 34 years old and, in spite of that is in the final stretch of his career, his path endorses him to be the 'covered' of the FC Barcelona in the position of '9'. The Croatian forward has showed a big level in teams like the Bayern Munich, the Athletic of Madrid or the Juventus of Turín and, in case to arrive to the Camp Nou, could turn into a big complement for players like Leo Messi or Antoine Griezmann.
