Xavi Hernandez will seek to achieve its first important victory of 2022 in the semifinal of the Spanish Super Cup between Barcelona and Real Madrid. The Barça coach will try to place his best weapons from the start to overcome those of Carlo Ancelotti, who are the great favorites; However, he is aware that he still has a long way to go to have the team he loves so much.
Ferran Torres was finally able to be registered after the hiring of Samuel Umtiti, but the Barza managers are clear that the Spanish DT wants one more striker. The former footballer feels that with Memphis Depay it is not enough to face the great challenges of this new year. He has already given the higher command a list of options, but this week it became known that the main name he wanted could not be.
Alvaro Morata, who was at the top of the list of favorites to reinforce Barcelona, will have to continue in Juventus. Massimiliano Allegri, coach of the Italian team, had no problem letting him go a few days ago; However, Federico Chiesa’s injury, which will leave him out for six months, made it difficult for the Spaniard to leave.
This Tuesday, in conversation with the press, the Bianconero coach made it clear that his team will not sign or sell anyone else, immediately closing the doors to the former Real Madrid striker.
“This is our squad and we stay with these players. We will see later. We have many offensive solutions and, if necessary, Cuadrado can play extreme “Allegri said in the run-up to the Italian Super Cup final against Inter Milan.
Chiesa’s injury caused Massimiliano to immediately shield Morata, who will become his ‘9’. Cuadrado, for his part, who has served as a right-back, will advance a few meters in the attack.
Álvaro and Paulo Dybala point to the starting eleven against Inter Milan, although Allegri stressed that the ‘Jewel’ had a significant drain on energy in the last game. “VLet’s watch the training. Paulo didn’t have to play 86 minutes against Inter and let’s see how he feels”Said the Tuscan coach.
What other option is close to Barcelona?
In the hours of the night of last Monday, the possibility of Oscar for Barcelona appeared. Marcelo Bechler, a journalist who announced the signing of Neymar to PSG, revealed that the Brazilian has great chances of signing for Barza replacing Phillipe Coutinho, on loan to Aston Villa.
At the Camp Nou they think that the ex-Brazilian has the experience, technical quality and offensive power to be the footballer they are looking for. However, it is clear that they will only open the doors if your arrival is at zero cost. They know that FIFA and financial ‘fair play’ is upon them and they cannot be neglected.
Following the salary cap imposed by the Chinese Football Federation, Oscar’s salary at Shanghai Donghai was reduced from € 24 million net to € 2.5 million. There is still no talk of how much he would earn in Barcelona.
