Lionel Messi has been Barcelona’s talisman for sometime now and has also helped determine what kind of transfer strategy would suit Barcelona’s playing style.
Messi and Barcelona had landed gold when Neymar decided to move from Santos to Europe, as the Brazilian formed a stellar partnership with Messi and Suarez at the top of the Barcelona line.
However, Neymar’s ambitions took him away from Barcelona, leaving Messi and the Nou Camp with another search for that next superstar.
Dembele’s transfer to Barcelona was considered to be ‘that’ move, however, injuries to the French International have resulted in a stop and start season for him.
Barcelona are thus out in the transfer market, searching for that breakthrough and if reports are to believed they seem to have identified who they want to invest in this time round.
Gonalco Guedes, the PSG striker who was on loan last year has come under Messi and Barcelona’s radar.
Reports in Don Balon suggest that Barcelona want to land the Portuguese International and are ready to fight off Real Madrid for it.
Ronaldo has apparently spoken to the Real Madrid management about getting the Portuguese star to Madrid, but Perez instead wants to invest with Salah.
Guedes has come into the fore only after Griezmann’s announcement of staying put at Atletico.
Guedes is being seen as a cheap alternative to Salah and Greizmann, someone who will also help Barcelona retain some cash that can used for reinforcements in other areas.
The PSG player scored 5 goals for Valencia in 33 appearances last season.
Do you think Barcelona should sign him.
