Vía del Barça to sign a ‘9’: transfer with compulsory purchase

first_imgIt is not an easy challenge. Rodrigo Moreno, from Valencia seems to be the primary objective to which two veterans have joined as Fernando Llorente (Naples) or Olivier Giroud (Chelsea).The other option of not being able to hunt the white blackbird would be to take advantage of what is at home, in this sense, Also, Abel Ruiz, promising striker of the subsidiary who can have his final casting in the Copa match, has risen to Ibiza. Barcelona maintains a fight against time. In the absence of nine days for the winter market to close, the technical secretariat has activated the plan to find a forward that can cover the low of Suarez in the remainder of the season. However, the big problem is in the delicate economic situation of the club, which does not allow you to make large expenses at this stage of the course. And if we add that you want to escape from signing a patch that does not contribute anything as it happened last season with the hiring of Boateng, the thing is more complicated.Thus, Barcelona is looking for a nine with experience in LaLiga and that does not cost to adapt and That is of sufficient quality to be a protagonist and discuss the position in next seasons to Luis Suarez once he recovers and that in addition it can arrive yielded with a purchase option that would be executed in summer and that, therefore, would enter the economic exercise of the next campaign.last_img read more

Lionel Messi Scores 2 Stunning Free Kicks in 1st Hat-trick This Season | Watch

Leo Messi free-kick ??#UCL | @FCBarcelona pic.twitter.com/gwtsDp8pnF— UEFA Champions League (@ChampionsLeague) November 9, 2019Barcelona’s disgruntled fans had whistled their team against Slavia in midweek and when Olaza equalised for Celta, that tension and restlessness threatened to return.Instead, Messi took command, this hat-trick taking his tally to nine goals in seven games, 612 in total for his club.”Obviously when it’s tight we have the advantage of having the best player in the world and the best free-kick taker in the world,” said Busquets.Yet his precision from free-kicks is a skill the 32-year-old has worked on and improved in recent years, his conversion rate currently at four goals from his last seven attempts in the league.The last time a player scored a hat-trick from set-pieces in La Liga was when Messi himself achieved the same feat in 2012 against Espanyol, albeit with two penalties and one free-kick.There was good news for Barcelona too in the return of Luis Suarez, who came off the bench after recovering from a calf strain.Messi scored his penalty in the 23rd minute after Joseph Aidoo had blocked Nelson Semedo’s cross with his hand.It was Messi that conceded the foul for Olaza’s curling free-kick that was well-hit enough to beat Marc-Andre ter Stegen, even if the goalkeeper might have been disappointed not to be able to get across.There was little Celta keeper Ruben Blanco could do about Messi’s efforts, the first in stoppage time before the interval and the second three minutes after the restart.They were almost carbon copies of each other, bending over the wall and nestling in the top right-hand corner.Celta, under their new coach Oscar Garcia, never looked like mounting a comeback and Busquets put the result beyond doubt with a low shot five minutes from the finish.(With input from AFP) barcelonaCetla Vigoernesto valverdeFree Kick First Published: November 10, 2019, 10:16 AM IST Get the best of News18 delivered to your inbox – subscribe to News18 Daybreak.

Sergio Busquets drove home to make sure of the win late on. A 34th treble in La Liga puts Messi equal with Cristiano Ronaldo, while a much-needed win sends Barca above Real Madrid on goal difference and back to the top of the table at the end of a testing week.”It is impossible not to depend on Messi, he illuminates everything,” said Valverde. “We depend on him like any team would depend on him. He unlocked the game.”last_img read more
