Mercato | Mercato – Barcelona: A big finish thanks to … elimination in the Champions League?

Looking for an attacker this winter, Barça is looking in particular at the profiles of Timo Werner and Edinson Cavani. And paradoxically, elimination in the Champions League could facilitate these files. Explanations.

Barely arrived on the bench of FC Barcelona , Xavi has already identified the main flaw in its workforce. Indeed, in two meetings on the Catalan bench, the Spanish technician saw his team register only one goal, a penalty from Memphis Depay against Espanyol. Therefore, the Blaugrana club will aim to strengthen its attacking sector this winter with the arrival of a real scorer. And that could be facilitated by an elimination in the Champions League where Barça is in bad shape as the last day of the group stage approaches.

If Barça is no longer a rival, Chelsea and Manchester will be willing to speak

Second in its group, FC Barcelona will play its qualification on the lawn of Bayern Munich , already assured of finishing first and therefore reaching the knockout stages. If Barça do not win in Germany and Benfica beat Dynamo Kiev , the Catalans will then be transferred to the Europa League. However, as Mundo Deportivo explains, it won't be such bad news, at least in the transfer market. And for good reason, Barça is particularly interested in Timo Werner and Edinson Cavani and would like to attract them in the form of a loan. If Manchester United and Chelsea , already qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League , are sure not to find the Barça as opponents on the European scene, the two English clubs will probably be more inclined to let go of their attackers.
