Mercato | Mercato – Barcelona: Xavi definitively fixed for this XXL striker?

Posted on January 11, 2022 at 7:30 am by P.L.

In order to strengthen offensively, FC Barcelona would consider recruiting Alvaro Morata. However, the injury of Federico Chiesa could seriously complicate the case.

After signing Dani Alves and Ferran Torres this winter, FC Barcelona would not intend to stop there. Joan Laporta would still have some ideas in mind to reinforce the squad of Xavi and would be particularly interested in Alvaro Morata. The Spanish striker, on loan to Juventus by Atletico de Madrid , would even be considered a priority in the eyes of Xavi on the plan offensive. Nevertheless, the file is not so simple, Massimiliano Allegri having firmly opposed a departure of Alvaro Morata , while the track Mauro Icardi , considered by the Turin club to replace the Spaniard, seems to be complicated. And a new element comes to seal a little more the file Alvaro Morata .

Chiesa could complicate the plans of Xavi with Morata

As explained by Mundo Deportivo , the serious injury of Federico Chiesa could pose a problem for Joan Laporta with Alvaro Morata . The Italian winger suffered a ruptured cruciate ligament in his left knee and will therefore be unavailable for the remainder of the season. Without Federico Chiesa, and if Alvaro Morata were to leave this winter, Juventus would find themselves with very few offensive solutions and would be forced to find a new attacker. Consequently, the Turin club could resolve to keep the Spanish forward during this winter transfer window in order to avoid encountering attacking problems in the second half of the season.
