The replacement of Busquets can arrive in January

Everything will depend on how this market ends. Whether Frenkie de Jong ends up leaving and, finally, Bernardo Silva comes. And, obviously, also the performance of Miralem Pjanic, a personal commitment by Xavi to cover the gap of a key position in the team, that of Sergio Busquets.


The Blaugrana sports area, with all these conditioning factors, plans to advance the arrival of the replacement for Busquets to January, in a market that will be very different from previous years, because there will be a big break due to the World Cup that will favor the appearance of operations .

Wow, that can be more like a summer market than the usual winter market in which it is only used to cover gaps and unexpected emergencies. To bring six-month patches to face the decisive months of the season with more wardrobe and that usually lead the teams that are up to their necks in water.

Barça was already very clear that the great investment for next year should be a positional footballer to play ahead of the defence. The new Busquets who has been repeatedly sought in the market, but his signing has been delayed due to not finding the right piece or having other more strategic positions to cover. Busquets’ contract ends next season and everything indicates that he will finish his cycle as a Blaugrana. Advancing that replacement six months would favor the relief more naturally and would give air to the position.

And it is that this coming weekend, Barça has already run out of Busquets for the Anoeta match. As things stand with De Jong, the most reasonable thing is for Pjanic to take command in a position that is not strange to him and for which he must feel more than qualified. It will be a litmus test. If everything goes well, without a doubt, it will be a relief for the coach and the sports area, although everyone sees the Bosnian more as an interior.

The idea was to invest a good sum next summer in this new Busquets. It will be a strategic signing, but depending on all these conditions, everything could move forward.

And, today, the chosen one is Ruben Neves, the Wolverhampton midfielder. Everything has been discussed with Neves and it seems that he will not move this summer to wait for Barça. He has had very important proposals, but he has not even wanted to study them. Within six months he will already have a fixed price and in the summer it would be cheaper, but the need can tighten and Barça meditates on it. These next few days will be key.
