Mercato: Bara thinks Cavani … but not only – Football

To compensate for the long absences of Sergio Agero and Martin Braithwaite, FC Barcelona is targeting an express striker this winter. The Catalan club hope to convince Manchester United to let go of Edinson Cavani but remain on the lookout for other scorers.

Mercato: the Bar

Cavani is interested in FC Barcelona.

FC Barcelona have a problem with their attackers. At his ease during the last exercise, Martin Braithwaite, victim of a knee injury in mid-September, will not return until January. Sergio Agero, who had a heart attack, will not play again within three months. As for Luuk de Jong, his recent performance as a couple at the start of Ronald Koeman should push his managers to sell him during the transfer window. A market that could be moving.

Cavani, plan A

According to AS, the Blaugrana management has designated his recruitment priority: Edinson Cavani (34). Barred by very strong competition from Manchester United (Ronaldo, Rashford, Greenwood, Martial), the Uruguayan center-forward will end his contract next June. The Camp Nou resident hopes to convince the English club and the Matador to end their collaboration sooner than expected to avoid paying a transfer fee. An approach that remains delicate since the top scorer in the history of Paris Saint-Germain benefits from very high salaries from the Red Devils and is not necessarily ready to give up six months of salary in order to rally the northeast from Spain in January.

Lacazette also targeted

In case of failure, Barcelona has other avenues. One of them leads this time Arsenal with Alexandre Lacazette. If he returns a little in the small papers of Mikel Arteta, the French striker also finds himself in the same situation as Cavani with a lease expiring at the end of the current exercise. Soon 30 years old, the ex-captain of Olympique Lyonnais could welcome a move towards the five-time winner of the Champions League, especially with such weak competition. It remains to be seen whether he will be open to this possibility in mid-season or whether he will wait until he is free to make his choice. It is up to Barcelona leaders to be convincing.
