Joan Laporta made it clear that strengthening the midfield is not a priority for the summer within Barça, and surely the reason is economic. One of those possible signings, Ilkay Gündogan, has not made it easy for his possible arrival

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has to begin to close his planning for the next market of summer, especially in front of the complicated that it presents the panorama with LaLiga and his limitations with the Barcelona club to be able to inscribe new agreements. The patronal demands a decrease of at least 200 millions in the mass salarial, a very complicated task for the dispatches of the Camp Nou.

With this in mind, the Barça equally can not allow not reinforcing his staff for the next season, where now yes needs to compete and trascend in the Champions League. In front of this one of the positions that the director of football, Mateu Alemany, wants to reinforce is the one of mediocampista, especially if Sergio Busquets finishes deciding not renewing by a year more, in front of the offer to the drop that will have on the table.

Free or no, the conditions are not easy

One of the profiles that the director always had prioritised is the one of footballer that remain free of agreement, by this Jorginho and Kanté were in folder during the winter, happening afterwards to Ilkay Gündogan like big priority, but this cost zero also means to assume index cards very high by his origin from the Premier and with the limit salarial already surpassed, the operation by the German begins to see almost impossible.

Alemany Has tried to approach to the surroundings of the still footballer of the Manchester City, but 'Sport' signals that in the Barça are not had to arrive to the figures that asks the exjugador of the Borussia Dortmund. Although in the Camp Nou understand that they could adapt to the German to the game blaugrana almost immediately, his almost 33 years and the needs of other positions go back it an increasingly far possibility.

Another very difficult midfield player to close

In fact, this same conditioning happens with Bernardo Silva, adding besides that by the Portuguese himself it would be necessary to pay a value of traspaso, at all low said was in passing. In the 2022 looked for other operations like the ones of Lewandowski, Raphinha or Koundé and finally could not do a last effort by a footballer that right now would fit perfectly, but except a change of last hour, will remain like a big dream for all.
