Former Barcelona midfielder Luis Garcia stated that club need to sign proper alternative for Luis Suarez who will fulfil the void created in attack line.
Barcelona boss Ronald Koeman took the managerial charge in the very though situations of the club. As they are suffering from the huge financial loss and coach not even demand to have a great signing during the transfer windows.
One of the example is the current winter transfer window for the Catalans. They didn’t sign much new player as squad required at least one at defence, midfielder and forward position. But lower economic condition made Barcelona to depend on club potentials.
Meanwhile, Barcelona’s former midfielder Luis Garcia opened up regarding club’s worst condition in the press conference. While talking to Goal he told that Blaugrana need to sign one potential replacement for the Luis Suarez.
Following his interview Goal quoted, ‘ Barcelona lost the gem in the name of Luis Suarez and created the big whole at number nine. Camp Nou side was in the trouble due to chairman behaviour, Lionel Messi transfer saga and such other things around the club.’
‘ In such condition I think Luis Suarez did the correct thing by finding his way out from the Catalans. Instead of fighting with club president he moved away to arch-rivals Atletico Madrid. Atletico Madrid also signed him due to Deigo Costa’s injury as they needed one striker,’ Luis Garcia added.
‘ Whereas, his decision turns to be right and proved himself with his outstanding performance at Atletico Madrid. Every weekend he comes under limelight and now stood as the La Liga top scorer. Therefore, it clears the attitude of greatest players, ‘ told Luis Garcia.
Erling Haaland & Alexander Isak should be Barcelona prime target.
‘ We saw how Barcelona struggling to sign the replacement for Luis Suarez. During the winter transfer window they didn’t find any alternative for him. So now it’s become the greatest and hard work for Catalonia to find a new striker.’
“Of course, there are a few strikers out there. We’ve got Haaland on top, a striker who is a different number nine to what Barcelona are used to. They have been playing Antoine Griezmann as a number nine and also Messi and Martin Braithwaite. But these are not forwards who are built for this kind of Barcelona.”
‘ Furthermore, Luis Garcia told that Ronald Koeman doing his job fantastically with new players like Pedri and Ousmane Dembele. So Real Sociedad’s striker Alexander Isak is another good opportunity for him. As he carries good quality on the ball.’
‘ Henceforth, there are a couple of number nine players I will love to watch at Camp Nou. But in the end all will depend on the financial conditions of the Barcelona. So we just need to wait and watch at the club’s next move in the upcoming days, ‘ Luis Garcia concluded.
Looking at economical loss in pandemic selling Luis Suarez was the correct decision from the Barcelona. As they are suffering from the €1.2 billion in a single year. So it was quite difficult to keep high salary players in the squad so they released him.
Whereas, Barcelona is still under pressure from Lionel Messi’s departure in the summer for free agent. He will finish his contract in summer and Manchester City, PSG are looking to steal him. Hence, will come to know about all the things at the end of the season during the summer transfer window.
