Everything indicates that the possible return of Alexis Sánchez to the FC Barcelona has been thing of days. Although it is true that the Catalan team needs fichar to reinforce for the second half of season, the of the Chilean does not finish of colar. Xavi Hernández wants the arrival of Ferran Torres for this same winter, and this would be the main reason by which the arrival of the player of the Inter of Milan does 'unlikely'.

The technician egarense already shared changing room with the forward between 2011 and 2014, where remained in evidence the fault of 'explosion' of the attacker in the Camp Nou. Although in his three years dressing the elastic blaugrana was under the control of three different trainers, his 46 goals in 141 parties did not fulfil with the expectations that brought the 'crack' from Udinese.

Regarding the defender, the Benfica Portuguese has showed interested, but still have not done a formal offer by the defender. Both players present a wage 'gigantic' for the level futbolístico that have showed, by what his exit is more than just.

The another option is in the 'case Dembélé'. The extreme Frenchman has said that it wants to renew as long as it arrive to a beneficial economic agreement for both parts. Nevertheless, the agents of the player and the Barça continue without understanding , and in 15 days the attacker already could begin to negotiate with any another club. The idea, in principle, would be to renew him for like this reduce the financial hit of the agreement of 'The Mosquito' this year, and like this can fichar in 2022.
