The first week of Hansi Flick in his new dispatch in the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper has been, what less, intense. The trainer of the FC Barcelona has kept meetings daily with the sportive director, Deco, to define the arrivals and, especially, the exits of the club this summer. Several names are 'marked in red', although there are others that whose future has remained like an interrogante.

The overbooking in the staff is indisputable, by what the blaugranas cleared the panorama to determine the line of work to be followed. Of these discussions was born the debate in the attack of the team, since from the technical body until the directive consider that they have to improve the offensive resources to give a jump of quality to the square. For this, the culés marked like priority a differential footballer and with desborde by the left band.

The problem is in that, if it concretises the arrival of an extreme, Raphinha would not have hollow in the eleven headline and would open him the door of exit. Nevertheless, this alternative is 'frozen', since the player communicated before going to the Glass America that does not pretend to abandon the club and, although the Barça has the tools to force the situation, Deco does not want to give off of the footballer.

The Portuguese executive was representative of the Brazilian and one of the managers of his arrival to the City Condal, by what keeps a very near relation with him. It is by this that has braked the exit of the forward, to the that does not want to force to that it accept to leave of the team in spite of that his leadership would see entirely reduced if it closes a big signing for the position.

The elected of the Barça

By the moment, in Can Barça have 'frozen' all the offers received from Saudi Arabia by the Brazilian to see as they evolve other cases in the offensive during these weeks and take a definite decision in July. The only 'intocables' are Lewandowski and Lamine Yamal, to which would add them Joao Félix if it arrives to an agreement with the Athletic. In the meantime, Ferran Torres, Ansu Fati, Vitor Roque and Raphinha would be in the 'ramp' of exit, although the sale of the Brazilian is not prioritaria for the sportive direction.

The arrival of Nico, in 'check'

However, the continuity of Raphinha would put to the club between the 'sword and the wall'. The culés think that would be positive to concretise the sale of the extreme in return of a millionaire figure like the proposals by the Arab clubs to be able to 'launch' by Nico Williams. The Barça prefers to the footballer of 21 years, whose youth and disequilibrium would go up the level of the offensive of the team, but if it does not go the ex of Leeds will be impossible to assume this operation. All can change in the next days, but Deco has 'braked' any movement and, to keep like this, the signing of Nico Williams would remain desestimado.
