Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has had a wintry market very different to the of 2022 this year. The problems with the 'fair play' financial of LaLiga have tied of hands to the directive to add some reinforcement and, with exception of the course of Memphis Depay to the Athletic of Madrid, there were not movements in January. However, to less than 72 hours for the closing of the window of passes, Jordi Cruyff left opened the door to some operation of last hour.

"Never it knows ", it said the sportive director of the Barça to 'DAZN' after the triumph of the Saturday in front of the Girona (0-1). To Xavi Hernández would have loved him add a forward for suplir the drop of Depay, but the requirements of the patronal have prevented, even, update the index card of Gavi like player of the first team, chord to the contractual renewal that signed does months. However, Cruyff added: "they Can be calm because a lot of movements there will be".

In fact, in front of the drops of Robert Lewandowski and Ferran Torres by sanction, the culés finished the party in Montilivi without forwards after the injury of Ousmane Dembélé and the replacements of Raphinha and Ansu Fati, only available attackers together with the one of Vernon for the day 19 of the tournament. Luckily, so much the '9' as the '11' will return the Wednesday for the pending party of the day 17 in front of the Betis.

The exit of Bellerín, a key movement

In the last days has trascended the interest of the Sporting of Portugal to carry to Héctor Bellerín. As 'The Athletic', the group luso could present an offer by the Spanish if Pedro Porro leaves to the Tottenham, although this would leave to the Barça without his only right side born. Jules Koundé and Ronald Araújo have alternated the position in the last weeks, with Sergi Roberto and Alejandro Balde like alternatives.

In this sense, the exit of the defender could change a lot of things on the end of the market. Free a contingent more in the staff and do box with the traspaso of the ex player of Arsenal and Betis would free margin salarial to go to by some player 'low cost' on the hour, although the options in attack with these characteristics do not abound. Bellerín Only has played 494 minutes delivered in 7 parties this season and everything aims to that will go out free in summer, as the club does not think to renew him.
