Arrived to replace a Ronald Koeman sacked a few months before the end of his contract, Xavi is determined to restore the image of FC Barcelona.

With feedback from Joan Laporta and Xavi, FC Barcelona want to go back to their roots when the club began to dominate Europe and revolutionize football. To do this, however, we must give ourselves the means … and in Barcelona we seem to have very little. The Catalan club is indeed going through the worst crisis in its history, forced this summer to let Lionel Messi slip away at Paris Saint-Germain and pushing Antoine Griezmann to Atlético de Madrid . Asked about the winter transfer window which is fast approaching, Mateu Alemany seemed very pessimistic. “The reality is that today we can register Xavi and his team of coaches and after that we have nothing left, “said the executive director of FC Barcelona. ” If there are more starts, we will have more margin vis-à-vis towards financial fair play. We are working on different situations, but to date there is no possibility ”. However, in Spain several names are announced to join the ranks of Xavi's team, including Ferran Torres from Manchester City, or again Dani Olmo from RB Leipzig .

At least one reinforcement per line is necessary

This Sunday, AS takes stock of the priorities of Xavi at FC Barcelona, ​​for this winter transfer window. According to daily reports, the recent arrival of Daniel Alves serves to fill a certain gap in defense, even though he is a 38-year-old player. The problem will however arise on the left, since Jordi Alba is the only real option for Xavi, who would be helpless in the event of injury. The same goes for Sergio Busquets, another veteran of this FC Barcelona . AS explains that if Frenkie de Jong can replace him, Xavi would consider him essential to another position and would therefore like to have an alternative. The biggest project, however, concerns the offensive sector, since it is the entire front of the attack that would be targeted. Neither Ousmane Dembélé nor Anus Fati currently gives a lot of assurances with their physical problems and if Sergino Dest or Daniel Alves can be a winger, they are not strong enough options. Finally, the arrival of a top striker would be considered essential by Xavi, as again according to information from AS this position should be strengthened in January. But with what money will FC Barcelona be able to do all this?
