Today, the transfer market is crowded, but Barcelona have a great team that has the talent to be world-class.
Their main target this summer will be the signing of Neymar, who is out of contract at the end of the season, and they could afford to let him go, with an option to buy him on the table.
The signing of Messi and Suarez is the main reason why, but this season Barcelona have three great midfielders in Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Xavi Suarez, and a very good partnership in Xavi, Dani Alves and Xabi Alonso.
It’s a good system and it will allow Barcelona to be the best team in the world.
But will it work?
What are the obstacles to getting it right?
And is it possible to build a better one?
Let’s take a look.1.
The system is already in place1.
Neymar was the best player at the World Cup, and it’s obvious why Barcelona are desperate to sign him.
He is one of the best players in the whole world, and has the ability to play as a No. 10 or as a centre-forward.
He was the star of Brazil in the final, and he has shown that he can play for five to six hours at a time.
If Messi stays at the club, Barcelona will have a formidable attacking force with Neymar and Suarez, along with Neym.
However, there are still issues.
They will have to keep the best defenders at their disposal.
The only reason to keep Luis Suarez is that he has already proved his worth by leading the line in Brazil and scoring five goals, but there are other reasons to sell him.1 Lionel Messi is the best striker in the World, but how will he fit in with this Barcelona team?
His game is much more compact and he can create chances from nothing, as he showed in Brazil.
His passing and finishing are excellent.
He can also get in behind opponents, something Barca need if they want to keep up with teams like Manchester United, Chelsea and Bayern Munich.
He could help them to score more goals, because his passing is so good.
But Barca’s attacking style is not suited to him, and there is no way he will be able to score the goals they want.
His physicality will be needed more.2.
They have a lot of options at left-back, but they need a replacement for Xavi.
The Argentine is the team’s main creative outlet.
His presence is crucial, especially when Barcelona are on the attack, as Messi and Neymar are both extremely mobile.
There is a lot to be said for him, as the Argentine is one the best attacking midfielders.
However he is not the best option at left back, and is often seen as the one to be replaced.
Barcelona could go for someone with better fitness, like Carlos Bacca, but the Spanish defender is still under contract.
There are also questions over the long-term future of the Brazilian.
If Neymar can’t stay at the same club, they could try to bring in a replacement, but it would be a big gamble to pay a lot for a player who is just 23.3.
The midfield is not strong enough, but is the biggest problem.
It is clear that Barca want to replace the two centre-backs, but Barca have not given a firm answer yet.
Dani Alve is the club’s only left-sided centre-back.
It will be difficult to bring him back, as Barca would be facing serious financial problems if they sold him.
But the other centre-half, Mario Mandzukic, has not played since the World War II, when he joined Barcelona as a 15-year-old.
Mandzkic is a good player, but he has only a year left on his contract.4.
The defence is not up to scratch.
The Barcelona midfield is already very good, and the defensive line is a big weakness.
Dani and Neym are the best defensive midfielders at the moment, and their defensive abilities will be a huge advantage.
But their physicality and experience would not be enough.
It would be easier to build the defence in this way.5.
The team lacks a centre midfielder, especially at right-back because Dani and Xav have both left the club.
They are also unlikely to leave this summer.
They would be replaced by the 25-year old Dani Alvaro.6.
The squad is lacking quality.
Barcelona are already short of players with real world experience, as Dani Alvez is only 26, and Dani Alvalo is only 21.
Barca will have an even bigger problem in the defence, because they lack a big, physical presence in the middle.
This is why they are unable to bring Alvaros in, and that leaves a huge hole in their defence.7.
Barça have a problem with youth.
Neym is the only one who is 21 years old, and
