FC Barcelona: Xavi will get a striker in winter ?! Negotiations are underway

Arthur Cabral is currently the prime candidate to join the ranks of FC Barcelona in the winter transfer window, as reported by “Sport”. The mentioned medium adds that negotiations on this matter have already started.

Xavi has had two games behind him as head of FC Barcelona. There will be time for far-reaching conclusions, although it can already be argued that the lack of a nominal center forward is a big problem.

Martin Braithwaite and Sergio Agüero struggle with health problems, and Luuk de Jong does not guarantee quality. Consequently, Memphis Depay plays, but he is also not your typical nine.

This means that despite the financial problems, activists of the Camp Nou team want to get someone in the winter to increase the firepower of the Camp Nou team. According to the information provided by “Sport”, even specific talks on this matter have started, and their prognosis is really good.

According to this source, the main transfer target is Arthur Cabral, who has grown into the leader of FC Basel in recent months.

His numbers this season are impressive. So far, he has played a total of 24 matches, in which he scored 23 goals and also had eight assists. In addition, a large supporter of this transfer is the scout “Blaugrana” for the Brazilian and Portuguese markets – well-known to everyone Deco.

The former Portuguese international knew the player back when he was associated with Ceara and Palmeiras, appreciating his skills very much. Experts also say that he is a footballer whose characteristics can perfectly match the style preferred by Xavi.

Another big argument for this move is the Brazilian price. Unofficially, it is said that if someone wants to get it, they must take into account an expense of between 15 and 20 million euros. In the current situation of Barcelona, ​​this is not a small amount, but it seems that with possible winter sales, these funds can be used by club accountants. Alternatively, you can expect the payment to be postponed until the summer.

The footballer himself is also excited about the opportunity to join such a recognized club as “Blaugrana” is undoubtedly. It therefore seems that the transaction may actually take place in January.

The contract binds Cabral with his current employer until June 30, 2023.
