Zavi and Alemanni, to the edge of thought

Messi’s no changes Xavi and Matteo Alemani’s pace as Barca 2023-24 in focus. but not so much. The coach knew that a return to Argentina was a difficult dream and the director of football, cold and with the numbers in his head, considered it almost a utopia. Beyond Messi, however, the priorities were clear months ago. But we had to wait for the Argentine’s decision to find out what Barca were going to be able to access. For Javi, there is a bright side to things too. Argentino’s move to Miami would allow him to fill positions that, if Argentino were to come, would have been lame.

The first thing for Barca is yet to be sold. The 40% rule to which he is subject by LaLiga forces him to leave ballast before signing players. At the very least, they have made sure they can register Gavi, Araújo, Sergi Roberto, Marcos Alonso and Iñaki Peña, who were renewed during the season. Still pending is the extension of Balde, represented by Jorge Mendes, also pending the renewal of Lamine Yamal and, of course, Hot Song by Ansu, one of the possible exits with Ferran, KC, Rafinha and Eric. Is.

Xavi has already made it publicly clear that he wants two levels of players per position before seeking the club’s success in Europe. The coaches have already dropped that “we’re worse than last year” to prepare the staff for what’s to come. He has also insisted that the first signing following the departure of Sergio Busquets should be a ‘top’ midfielder. Zubimendi seems unlikely and Kimmich’s departure doesn’t appear to be a realistic option either. Players like Rubén Neves, Amarabat or Guido Rodríguez, while low profile, are touted as potential reinforcements.

Messi’s no leaves the door open for signing the right-back, although Xavi has made it clear that is not a priority. Julian Araújo, the Mexican who made his Japan debut since he arrived in January without a transfer, has a shot in the air; And Sergi Roberto doesn’t guarantee that status in high-level matches. Foyth, Xavi’s favorite side, is worth over 50 million; And Cancelo, unless Mendes leaves, will not be transferred from City to Barca, especially after the coach’s latest signings.

Barca, who have already locked down the signing of Inigo Martínez (in defense where they have the fewest problems), are in a hurry to ensure Ilkay Gundogan’s yes. The other need Xavi transmitted to Alemany is a ‘playmaker’. Teresa Koch enlists a builder to help Pedri with the construction work. So, last season I already wanted Bernardo Silva.

And then in front. Xavi and Alemani have to make a decision about athletic Carrasco and loanee Abde. The future of both depends on the departure of Anu Fati and Ferran Torres. Nine signings are also on the table to take over from Lewandowski. With a good relationship with the coach, Alemany and Deco, Aubameyang’s name is back on the table.
