On the last day of the Spanish League, Barcelona could win Celta de Vigo, 4-1, a key victory for the mood of the Catalans, who had a good performance on the court because they finally managed to connect and generate plays, especially Griezmann and Messi.
Still, his victory is bittersweet since Celta de Vigo, who did not have a bad game, is one of the teams that are in the last positions of the table and recently premiered coach. However, the most veteran and powerful players are aware of the failures of Ernesto Valverde as technical director, and for this reason they have begun to move their chips so that the governing body has the next signings in their eyes.
Although European football was alert to the report of the possible departure of Lionel Messi, since several media said that the Argentine would not renew for another season, the truth is that Messi is taking it easy. According to Marca, the Barcelona star will consider the renovation “the 2020-21 campaign has just begun”.
In this way, Messi would have already named certain players that would be the key to overcoming the not so good season they have had . According to Diario Gol, the Argentine would have asked the team for three signings for next season, taking into account that the winter market is closer.
According to the media, the three key files would be Neymar, Joshua Kimmich and Skriniar. However, the Brazilian star has been immediately discarded. The above taking into account the statements of the president of the Spanish club, Josep María Bartomeu, who reiterated that the signing of Neymar had not been possible in the previous transfer market, given the constant refusal of the current Brazilian team, Paris Saint Germain.
The president, in an interview with The Associated Press, referred to the matter stating that “after what happened last summer, he is still in the PSG. Therefore, we must have the greatest respect for a club and its players. ”
In the meantime, we introduce you to the other players that could reach the Blaugrana club in the next season.
1. Joshua Kimmich
One of the chosen by Messi, and also by Valverde, would be the current German side of Bayern Munich. Kimmich would be a key piece for Barcelona since the position in which he works is one of the most sought after in Europe.
Kimmich, arrived at the German club in 2015 and since that year has been polishing as a footballer because he also performs very well in the midfield. In addition, the German is already a figure in the absolute team of Germany. Kimmich would get to fill the position left by Dani Alves and that has not yet been able to be filled with total satisfaction by Nélson Semedo or Sergi Roberto, side that, according to the portal Signings, “although it stands out more playing in its natural position, it is limited to fulfill his role when he has to move to a right-wing ”.
2. Milan Skriniar
Another of Messi's requests is the Slovenian central defender, who currently plays for Inter Milan, at Seria A in Italy. Reportedly, the player would get to keep Gerard Piqué company in a transaction of around 60 million-plus the possible exit of a player.
It should be clarified that with the arrival of the Italian defender Diego Godín, the Italians could sell to one of their best players. Skriniar is one of the defenses that has gained the most popularity, and that is why Manchester United would also go after the defender.
3. Victor Lindelöf
According to the portal Don Balón, this 25-year-old defender from Sweden could be another alternative for the defense of Barcelona. The arrival of the current winner of the Golden Ball of Sweden, The Guldbollen, according to its original name, could be more feasible in this winter market season.
As Mundo Deportivo commented, in the summer market, Barcelona would have made an offer for the center, but Manchester United, the current team of the Swedish, said that “there is no possibility. Victor is one of our best players”, as reported by the player's agent, Hasan Cetinkaya to the Aftonbladet newspaper. But for this new season, Lindelöf could not resist a good offer from the Catalan team taking into account the bad streak of Manchester United.
4. Emre Can
The German midfielder and current Juventus player of Italy would be not only in the eyes of Barcelona but also of the PSG. For the Spanish team, it would be a key player that replaces the possible departure of Carles Aleñá and Ivan Rakitic, players who have not been able to add many minutes to Barcelona.
In addition to the arrival of coach Maurizio Sarri with whom he does not maintain a good relationship and product of that are the few minutes he has played, the German could see an exit in this winter market. According to Sport, the arrival of the player could be beneficial for his “high technique, which would greatly facilitate his adaptation to the team, and could be a solution to consider when looking for a game that, by touch, is more dynamic than other players in the squad can offer ”.
5. Fabian Ruiz
The Spanish footballer, a player in the Società Sportiva Calcio Napoli of Serie A, is a player who has been circling the orbit of Barcelona since the summer market. If he arrives, he is expected to complement himself on the field with players like Frenkie de Jong and Arthur Melo.
However, according to the ESPN report, Barcelona's eternal rival, Real Madrid, would already be trying to negotiate with Napoli. The same media mentions that the meringues would be willing to offer 100 million, something that could be an obstacle for the Catalans, who would not be willing to pay so much for the player.
