Welcome back to TalkBarca. Our topic for today is FC BARCELONA’S TRANSFER PRIORITIES. The season has officially ended as Bayern Munich beat PSG last night to become European Champions. Now there is going to be a lot of news about transfer rumors, changes in management, contract renewals, and what not! It is obvious that there are going to be a lot of players linked to FC Barcelona as well. However, some of those transfers are going to look likely to happen while others not. I am going to write about two players who look to be Barcelona’s priority this summer.
BARCELONA’S TRANSFER PRIORITIES FT. LAUTARO MARTINEZ
I am going to talk about Lautaro Martinez in this article and I am going to write about the other player right after this one. You have to wait to see who the other player is, but right now we are talking about Lautaro Martinez. Therefore, let’s jump right into our topic and get started. Ronald Koemann is the new man in charge of FC Barcelona and he has made things clear right from day 1. Ronald Koemann intends to do some serious business in the transfer market this summer while keeping within the budget limits of FC Barcelona.
He has stated that he is aware of who the club needs and he intends to bring that player to the Camp Nou. He is also pretty interested in selling unwanted players who are either too old or struggling to make a part of the first team. Koemann intends on polishing and nurturing the young talent so that these players can serve the club for a longer period of time. Another young talent we are going to talk about today is Lautaro Martinez. Lautaro is heavily linked to the club and Barca is very keen to get his signature for them.
Luis Suarez is the current starting number 9 for FC Barcelona. It is not needed to say that Suarez is no more as lethal as he used to be and this is sole because he is aging. FC Barcelona desperately needs someone to replace him permanently and be more effective than he was during his peak days. Unfortunately, FC Barcelona still does not think that Griezmann can take over that role. Therefore, Lautaro Martinez has become a huge priority for the Catalan club this summer. Lautaro is young and exactly what Barcelona needs.
LUIS SUAREZ TO AJAX?
Lautaro Martinez likes the FC Barcelona club and he can combine pretty well with Lionel Messi considering that he is an Argentinean as well. However, Martinez is going to come to Barcelona when Luis Suarez leaves the club. Coming to Barcelona while Suarez is still there is risky for the young striker because that could mean less playing time. Luis Suarez has one year pending in his contract and he gets another year extension if he plays 60% of FC Barcelona’s next season games. This can be a gamble situation for the Argentinean striker. Lautaro cannot risk playing time.
He is a young player and the major concern for players of this age is to be out on the pitch for as long as possible. Lautaro does not want to be shadowed by Suarez or anyone else. However, Luis Suarez is linked to a move to Ajax this summer and this rumor looks very likely to happen. Currently, Suarez has stated that he does not want to leave the club. However, FC Barcelona can get rid of him if they want to. However, Suarez is not going out of Barcelona without his will. Let’s wait and see.
Lautaro is indeed the biggest priority of FC Barcelona this summer. However, Suarez needs to depart before Barcelona can initiate talks with Inter. We need a good number 9 in order to combine with Messi and boost our attack. Is Suarez going to leave the club? Can Lautaro Martinez come to Barcelona? Is Lautaro the solution to all our attacking problems?
Let us know in the comments section down below. Tell us what do you think about this transfer rumor and how much do you want for Lautaro Martinez to come to Barcelona?
Until the next time, VISCA EL BARCA!
