Two players that Barcelona will most likely sign in January

The January transfer window is fast approaching and we already have a vague idea of what it should look like for Barcelona. The priority is very much selling players to gather funds and then, only once that is out of the way, the Catalans can turn to buying.

And according to a new update from Sin Concesiones, Memphis Depay and Eric García are the likeliest candidates to arrive at the Camp Nou this winter. Of course, this isn’t necessarily breaking news but it does seem like the club will try and get both deals over the line in January already.

With both players running out of contract in the summer, there was always an option to sign pre-contracts in the winter and then get them essentially for free a couple of months later. Buying them in January will require a small fee, on the other hand.

And the same source claims both signings would then be the new president’s first arrivals. Whoever wins the elections will come into power just three or four days before the market closes so it might be a tight affair altogether.

Still, as things currently stand, we are likely to see Depay and García in Blaugrana sooner rather than later. After all, Ronald Koeman insists that a new forward and a new centre-back are priorities to strengthen the team.

First, however, Barcelona will have to negotiate with Olympique Lyon and Manchester City respectively. And that, needless to say, could be easier said than done.

I’ve been a Barcelona fan for more than half of my life. What started as blind love is slowly turning into professional writing. Now, I get to write about Barca, analyse them, and voice my opinions on them across platforms. I’m happy to be a part of this big project.

    I have been a fan for my life since up to date and I saw some people turned away from supporting the club when the time Samuel Eto’o left the club and I remain with Barcelona to support

    If Memphis Depay will coming in the summer for free, could be a solution! The same for Garcia! This may be also the way to test if the players’ desire to sign with Barcelona is real!

      For me Griezmann & Dembele aren’t going to help us. I would prioritise Martinaz before Depay. Garcia is going to be the answer to our defensive problems.

    I would love to see Barca return to its conquering level with excellent and beautiful play.
    Delay is far much better than Braithwaite. He can fit well with the great Messi and Ansu Fati.

    Gracia is also an excellent acquisition i would live to see him in our team.

    I am also happy to see the back of Baryomeleo and his board. We must just focus on the correcting the wrong of the past.

Papers: Messi pays homage to Maradona in clash against Osasuna

Barcelona have finally returned to winning ways with a complete dismantling of Osasuna the other night. The 4-0 scoreline tells the whole story really but it was Lionel Messi who once again stole the show with his magic.

Needless to say, the papers this morning are all about the little genius and his special homage to the late Diego Armando Maradona. SPORT say it was an emotional tribute from one D10S to another.

The Argentine scored an incredible goal and then revealed an old Newell’s Old Boys shirt underneath his Azulgrana colours which also bore the no.10 on the back. That’s the same number Maradona used to wear back in the day.

Apart from that, Antoine Griezmann also had a great night as he scored by far the best goal of the game and most likely the 2020/21 season as a whole as well. This incredible volley is bound to restore at least some of the Frenchman’s lacking confidence.

Mundo Deportivo are saying the same things with their cover, ‘Amen‘.

The outlet talks about Messi’s homage to Maradona but also mentions the goalscorers, Martin Braithwaite, Griezmann and Philippe Coutinho. However, not all is perfect and there were a couple of things that may put a stain on an otherwise perfect night.

Clément Lenglet had to be replaced following an injury and that leaves Barcelona with no senior centre-backs available anymore should the injury be serious.

Time for Frenkie de Jong in the backline next to some youngsters? It would definitely seem so.
