With La Liga increasingly complicating Barça's plans for the summer, the Barça team needs to organize its priorities and review in depth what the real conditions of each option are.
The FC Barcelona has several positions that needs to reinforce, with three of them like priority. The right side, the mediocentro and the leading centre are positions where there are not too many natural alternatives to the headlines of this season (Koundé, Busquets and Lewandowski). Incidentally the left extreme, and the central left like last option, are zones that the club wanted to improve in summer. For all these cases, review which are the main alternative in the market.
The footballer of the Villarreal was a serious aim of the Barça in the 2022, but take it that they began the negotiations in the window veraniega prevented that the Barcelona club could negotiate calmly. Now, and without Emery in the bench, the Argentinian goes back to add chevrons and could be this solid player in defence that wants to Xavi for this zone of the field.
Like raisin with Foyth, the French is a much more defensive side and that also can act of head office. With Balde already being the future by the left, the technical body wanted to opt by a player checked to the highest level and that it can solve the rival attacks without too much problem, something that never achieved Héctor Bellerín, for example.
The Dutch of 22 years yes is a much more offensive alternative, and with another type of projection. Like this they confirm it his 5 goals and 3 assistances in 21 parties in the Bundesliga, and also his value of near market to the 30 'kilos'. The Premier also has it in folder and this would mean that the defender would be in the middle of a very important bidding, something to what the Barça escapes him at all times for this summer.
As well as Foyth is an aim of time backwards, the same raisin with the mediocampista of the Real Sociedad. The pivote is the preferred of Xavi to relieve to Busquets, although the Basque team only will leave it go out by the 60 million his clause, a figure that the Arsenal of Arteta already offered to pay. Operation very complicated, but still on the table.
All the contrary that sucede with Zubimendi, is in the case of the Moroccan. The player already presionó to arrive to the Camp Nou in winter and the offer culé is his priority for the next month of July, but the Fiorentina will await and will try to take out the greater possible money by a player that six months ago was not in looks it of the European elite.
The German is not a mediocentro traditional, neither neither natural, although yes it exerts very well this function. The still player of the Manchester City could arrive free and with an accessible index card to allow that the Barça have 1 or 2 years to close a signing of much more future, but without risking that the position lose the quality that need a diagram like the one of Xavi.
The French is a bargain as it is it Gündogan. It remains free and already his club confirmed that the attacker will not renew for having offers from England, Italy and Spain. The Frenchman could be the ideal option by price, but besides because in his career also has played a lot of left extreme, solving like this two positions by an alone index card and without payment of value of traspaso.
The Brazilian was the big feeling of the past Sudamericano Sub-20. 6 goals in the juvenile tournament and his price shot on the 20 millions. The Paranaense does not have haste, but the help of Deco could do that the club feels to negotiate with the Barça and find a formula that allow to the goleador land in this same 2023 in LaLiga.
In this case the order in this note yes has to the gabonés as they are the things in the reality, last. His return to the Camp Nou is a possibility, but is not a priority when being already in the end of his career. However, the forward surely desvinculará of Chelsea and could be an acting forward of guarantees and with one of the lowest index cards of all the staff.
To the not being really a priority, at least that Ansu Fati decide to change of airs or the club sell to Ferran and Raphinha, the culés does not have thought to spend too much. The return of the footballer that has been yielded in the Osasuna this season would suppose a gain for both parts, and a saving for the dispatches of the Barcelona club.
The exit of Memphis the Athletic of Madrid left a preferential option so that the Barça can fichar to the Belgian attacker. Xavi wants to to the player, but understands that first there are other zones of the field to reinforce.
Like raisin with Abde, Nico González could be a solution for the mediocentro, although in this case yes seems the same conditioned to that it arrive another player to that Busquets decide to continue until 2024. For the central left-handed Iñigo Martínez keeps on being the favourite, although Marcos Alonso will follow and if index card to a side, Koundé could go back the couple of Araújo in the centre of the defence.
