Xavi Hernandez has been in the dugout for two matches since taking over as Barcelona coach. The legendary Spanish midfielder’s record in two matches is not bad at all. The Catalans won their first match of the league dugout 1-0 against city rivals Espanyol, then drew 0-0 with Benfica at home in the Champions League.
But the thing Xavi wants to improve the most at the end of the two matches is definitely the team’s ability to score goals. Under him, the team has scored only one goal in 180 minutes without conceding a goal, which is certainly not to the liking of the Barca coach. Xavi is looking for ways to increase his attack power.
Two days ago, there was a rumor in Spain that Barca wanted Brazilian striker Arthur Cabral from Swiss club FC Basel. And it wants this January, not June.
The name of Al Jazeera’s former Al Jazeera club Algerian striker Baghdad Bunedzahr also came up on the table. Rahim Sterling also kept the exchange market busy for some time. In the meanwhile, rumors have started circulating around Thoris since yesterday. Xavi is keen to get Manchester City’s Spanish forward, and Barca’s sports director Mateo Alemani has already moved to Manchester to fight for him, according to rumors in Spain.
Xavi, a young, dynamic, tactful, ball-footer who can easily outrun an opposing defender … is a winger that he likes, said on the day of his introduction as Barcelona coach. There are no less winger in Barcelona, but no one is exactly as reliable.
The national team is brighter in the Netherlands jersey than the Memphis Depot club that went to Barca this season. Barca’s young forward Ansu Fatir spends more time in hospital than on the field. Brazilian playmaker Philippe Coutinho, who left Liverpool three seasons ago for a club’s record ৬ 160 million, has yet to adapt to Barca. And you can, that’s less likely. Barca is looking for a way to sell him.This is about the left wing.
Usman Dembele is one of the best in his day, but his ‘own day’ comes in Kalevadra. His own day is the next thing, his day is not in the field. Today this injury, so tomorrow the French winger is suffering from that injury. Young Yusuf Demi has yet to do anything to secure a regular place in the main team, he has been brought in on loan. Another striker, Martin Brathwaite, could return to injury by the end of January.
All in all, Barca want players to attack. Xavi is looking for a striker to score more specifically, and a winger to intimidate the opponent on the right. The first thing they saw was Switzerland. That’s why he’s not being called the ‘new Lewandowski
But it remains to be seen whether that will be possible. According to Barcelona-based journalist Gabriel Sons, it could cost Barcelona 8 million to 10 million to get Cabral.
