Barcelona Meditates Signing Another Striker

The FC Barcelona he is considering the possibilities that exist to complete the squad with the incorporation of another striker. The casualties that have accumulated in recent days, one definitive and as momentous as that of Leo Messi, and another due to injury to Sergio Kun Aguero, leave the campus at the disposal of Ronald Koeman in precarious, taking into account that the club still hopes that for another of the team’s attackers, the Danish international Martin Braithwaite, may appear on the horizon of a club, especially the Premier League, that decides to bet on him by paying a transfer.

Until just a few days ago, Koeman always said that “the most important thing” was to have the 30 goals or more that Messi assured in a modest estimate, and that from this season they will no longer be there. The march of the great crack gave, in theory, more role to his friend Agüero, but yesterday it was confirmed that the Argentine international will be out for about ten weeks due to a tendon injury in the inner calf of his right leg. Ansu Fati not yet ready to reappear. During the preseason, Koeman has punctually pulled as an auxiliary plan of King Manaj, who has responded with four goals, but the future of the Albanian was out of the club in the forecasts.

Thus, to start the League against the Real society next weekend, they would be available as pure attackers Antoine Griezmann, Braithwaite Y Memphis Depay, although this is not yet registered due to the bureaucratic mess with LaLiga on the wage bill. It is hoped that this matter will be solved as soon as possible because otherwise Barça’s problem would be more serious.

Against this background, the technical secretariat works combing the market and reviews its reports, pondering what the market offers to alleviate this deficit. The mission is not easy at all considering the serious budgetary limitations that afflict the club. That is why it is important to be very clear about which players could arrive before September 1, the market closing date, under advantageous conditions, for example in the form of an assignment.
