In Can Barça expect a market of signings 'agitated', with several incorporations that give him the jump of necessary quality to a team that has not known to compete in the big stages, 'falling' of the fight by LaLiga before the imagined and remaining deleted of a Europe League in where they split like favourites. Nevertheless, the financial situation of the entity will not allow them make big investments, by what the club works in function achieve good players to a low price.

However, the Catalans plan to concretise the incorporation of a forward of first level that was able to lead the project of Xavi Hernández. After several months in where diverse informations linked to Erling Haaland with the barcelonistas, the group blaugrana put the 'look' in Robert Lewandowski. The Polish forward finishes his agreement with the Bayern of Munich in June of the 2023 and already has made public his wish to abandon the rows of the group directed by Julian Nagelsmann.

In this sense, the goleador of the Bundesliga has ensured that the only option that handles is to join to the Barça, with the one who already has an agreement, and expects that his situation resolve with prontitud.

With agreement until the 2027, his clause of rescission round the 100 million euros, although the 'groguets' could fix a price of exit around the 40 millions, which would fit in the plans culés.

In Madrid is wished

Nevertheless, the barcelonistas alone have put the name of Moreno on the table and have not made any approach. Besides, his incorporation antoja complicated, since the Athletic of Madrid is looking for him a substitute to Luis Suárez and the '7' of the Villarreal is one of the favourites of the directive, presenting as a hard rival for the Barça in the 'career' by the attacker. In the meantime, the future of the footballer is uncertain, due to the fact that the directed by Emery will contest the Conference League and Gerard is a footballer level Champions, by what any option is descartada.
