Barcelona still has the Cup final. After that, the season will be over, but the next one immediately begins, with the transfer market, the highs and lows. The intention is to strengthen for the next season to try to maintain the level in the local tournaments and not repeat the fiasco in Europe. The duel against Valencia will be the last for many Barça players. Others will arrive.
Goal: Cillessen goes in search of more minutes, possibly Benfica, and Barcelona needs a substitute. You can fish again in Germany, with Caastels the Belgian goal of Wolfsburg, or Sommer, Swiss from Borussia Mönchengladbach. Even the Spanish international goalkeeper of Betis Pau, which would be more expensive. Those who go to Barça know that they will, in principle, as second goalkeepers and to play the Cup. Cillessen took on that role without question, despite being a fantastic goalkeeper. That's why he will leave.
Defending: Murillo, who arrived on loan in the winter market, will leave without leaving a trace. Todibo will continue as a substitute and Umtiti, who was aiming to start next to Piqué a few years ago, has lost his place because of his knee and not wanting to undergo surgery. You can leave. Despite the good role of Lenglet, Barça is behind De Ligt, the second Ajax young man who would arrive. But his agent is Mino Raiola, the same as Ibrahimovic's, and the negotiation has ups and downs. Vermaelen ends contract and will not renew: injuries have prevented him from having continuity A left side will also arrive, so that Jordi Alba has competence.
Midfield: There are already a couple of signings made, Frenkie de Jong (75 million + 11 in variables), young, with DNA Cruyff, therefore ADN Barça, and that aims high; and Ludovit Reis, greener and in principle aimed at the subsidiary. The casualties in this area of the field will be those of Rafinha and two doubts: Rakitic and Coutinho. The Croatian insists that he wants to stay and is one of the most used and trusted players Valverde, but has a market and throughout the year has not sat down with the entity to talk seriously about its renewal. Coutinho has not curdled and the problem that can be found Barca is to get a buyer willing to approach the figure they paid for him, which is around 160 million.
Lead: Messi, Luis Suárez and Dembélé continue, but if Coutinho leaves, a player with chimes can finally arrive. Griezmann, or of a similar high profile. Boateng it will come out: its hiring has not been of much use, and there will be another attempt to hire a «9» so that Suárez does not have to play almost everything. It could be from the Spanish League itself: Stuani, Maxi Gómez… Malcom It is also on the exit ramp. They want it in England. Enthusiasm can not be denied and he will surely be a starter in the Cup final because of the losses.
