The FC Barcelona deshoja the margarita in what to signings refers . From the cub understand that the only form to reinforce to the team, in addition to the operation of Dani Alves, is through cessions of players, with a cleaning of previous changing room. The Barça has to fichar, but there is not with what. In fact, recently it has informed that the Barcelona entity has to disposal less than ten million euros for the wintry window, after the renewals of Ansu Fati and Pedri González, in addition to the exit of Ronald Koeman and the contracting of Xavi Hernández and his 'staff'.

The financial situation is to the limit and are many the needs, but little the margin of action. Lamentably. The Barça has to reinforce a lot of positions and is complicated to do it, a priori, in January. It is thus that from it does some days has had more weight the message that Xavi Hernández wants to analyse the staff, the players that there is and the options that has to improve to the team and compete by the titles in this season, but the egarense understands that it could not being sufficient and that go out to the market is unavoidable.

In this sense, the one of Terrassa will keep his requirement and from the Barça are forced to find the formula to be able to 'please it', because they understand that it is complicated to do deep changes with a staff 'worn' as the one who there is right now. Xavi has asked an extreme and between the lists of options there are many, but the reality is that all are very complicated to carry to the Camp Nou. In any case, sound: Raheem Sterling, Kingsley Eat, Ferran Torres Mikel Oyarzábal or Dani Elm.

And it is that lto philosophy of Xavi is that it is necessary to play with open extremes, independently of the drawing that choose. His aim is that the Barça can take advantage of the amplitude and does not want to do it with sides or carrileros, as it came doing in the era of Ronald Koeman in the bench culé, when the Dutch bet by Sergiño Dest and Jordi Alba in a more advanced position, like carrileros... But neither it worked on a long-term basis.

For Xavi is essential that can achieve an extreme in January, but the options are reduced to consequence of the financial situation. In any case, the egarense wants players that can contribute by the bands, much more there of a 'nine', as it looked for does very little. At present, in the Barça are two extremes: Ousmane Dembélé and Ansu Fati, but have been victims of constant physical ailments and the alternative are more than necessary.

Problems with the options

It fits to remember that Raheem Sterling has sounded like the signing crashes of the Barça for the winter, but the last information of 'ESPN' has desvelado that the Manchester City does not have intentions to leave split to the international with England under any circumstance, although he has braked the conversations by his renewal and has showed that would prefer to abandon the Etihad Stadium.

It is a signing that from the Barça tanteando from does long. During the summer the director of football of the Barcelona club, Mateu Alemany, was in Manchester and "the pieces fit", of agreement to the information of the 'ACE', but finally did not concretise the operation. Now, from the offices of the picture 'citizen' deny categorically and will try to retain at all costs to Sterling by the time that can.
