Things that Barcelona should implement in the January transfer window

Barcelona fails to be in the title race of La Liga and needs to have some changes in the current squad during the January transfer window.

Barcelona one of the best teams from La Liga, now suffering to be in the title race in this season. As they stood long away from the top four positions in the points table. So fans and club officials are quite confused about this year’s performance.

Most of them are hoping to happen well in the second half of the season after the January transfer window. According to a report from 90min Barcelona need to do some changes in the squad during the January transfer window.

Moves that Barcelona should apply in the January transfer window

1. Fix the Lionel Messi’s future with Barcelona

Catalonia faced the Messi transfer saga in the previous summer transfer window. As Lionel Messi going to finish his contract in this summer transfer window everyone wants to know about his future. Whether he will continue with the club or exits from the home side.

Most players desire to finish their career with the Spanish side only. But some misunderstanding with the club officials forced him to decide about leaving the club. Hence, it depends on the club how they convince him to stay with Barcelona. Though he is not in form departure of a great player of the club history makes an impact on the club’s performance.

2. Sign one fullback but not Shkodran Mustafi

Catalans need to sign at least one fullback in this January transfer window. However, they are suffering a lot while stopping the ball to reach a goal’s net. As a result, they conceded most of the goals during the last season.

Moreover, Barca held talks with Shkodran Mustafi from Arsenal to arrive at Camp Nou. But report cleared that Barcelona should not sign flop Emirates defender Shkodran Mustafi. Because he will not fix the current defensive problem of the club.

Instead of Mustafi, Barcelona should sign Eric Garcia from Manchester City. Young talent from Manchester City keen to arrive at Camp Nou but he will not able to fulfill Barcelona’s requirement. So they should sign another defender like Alessandro Bastoni or Milan Skriniar along with a teenager.

3. Fulfil the requirement of proper striker

Camp Nou’s side didn’t have the proper striker who can score regularly like Luis Suarez. Club’s signing from the previous January transfer window Martin Braithwaite becomes the regular striker of Barcelona in the current season.

Though they have another choice for this position but Ronald Koeman offering more game time to a similar player. Therefore, Barcelona needs to sign a striker who will be hungry for the goals like the previous attacker Luis Suarez.

4. Barcelona should decide about Griezmann and Coutinho

Both the high wages attackers of the Spanish side are not the regular starters for the club. As everyone expecting Griezmann to get more playtime but it’s not happening the right way for the club. So they should think about Griezmann whether to feel him or utilize his skill for the club.

Club’s loan player Coutinho won the UCL with Bayern Munich in the last season. His appearance with Barcelona not bringing much impact in the on-field action. He fails to cement his place ahead of young Pedri. Another reason is Barcelona did the contract with Liverpool to pay £18m after the 100 appearances of the player. He is just 10 appearances away so Barca should think about him whether cash in with him or cash out by allowing him 10 more matches.

5. Barcelona should find replacement for Jordi Alba

Left-back Alba is consistently fighting with his form as he lost his place from Spain national team also. To get support from the left side Barcelona should sign another key left-back during the January transfer window. As reports told that they should sign Spain International Jose Gaya an ideal man for the replacement of Alba.
