While this season has been half and half for FC Barcelona, the Catalan club is preparing to recruit in number this summer to do better next season. Nevertheless, in lack of cash, the Catalan club will have to play it smart in its recruitment. It would like to attract a Bundesliga star at a lower cost.
The weak point of FC Barcelona
A year of transition among others. This is how this 2020-2021 season of FC Barcelona was presented at the beginning of the season. And despite some beautiful moments in La Liga and the King’s Cup, this initial premise has been respected until the end. Indeed, the King’s Cup winner, the Blaugrana have not been able to follow up in the league, cracking last week against Celta Vigo, burying their last hopes for the title. In the Champions League, Ronald Koeman‘s team has not been able to do any better, leaving the club in the last 16 against PSG. The chronic problem of the Camp Nou residents is that the attacking deficiencies of the squad have been exacerbated this season and no striker, apart from Lionel Messi, the arabesques of Ousmane Dembele and a few flashes of Antoine Griezmann, has been able to make up for a Luis Suarez who is in the middle of his career at Atletico Madrid.
Barça: The Lewandowski surprise
Unable to replace him, the Barça leaders are thinking of making a big move this summer. While the names of Memphis Depay and Sergio Aguero are the most reported, the Daily Mail reveals that Robert Lewandowski, surely the best player in the Bundesliga in recent seasons, would have a dream to play under the Barcelona shirt. Indeed, the Polish goleador would be tired of the championship, after eleven seasons in the Bundesliga, and would like to go elsewhere, especially to Barcelona, which would be his club of heart. Under contract until 2023, it seems utopian to see him join the Costa Brava this summer, unless Laporta wants to make a big splash from the start, despite the club’s meager finances.
