Xavi Hernández’s ‘dream’ striker for Barça 2022-23

The 2022-2023 season is under construction for FC Barcelona. The Barça squad, with Mateu Alemany and Jordi Cruyff, is working to get a squad that is competitive and that can fight for the titles next season, but It will only depend on the economic situation improving significantly in the coming weeks to be able to go out on the summer transfer market.

At the moment, Barça is not in the financial capacity to undertake the transfers that are desired (which are quite a few), especially that of Robert Lewandowski, who has become Xavi Hernández’s great objective to reinforce his forward line. Javier Tebas has recently acknowledged that “numbers are very easyif you have more than 500 million losses from the previous two years you have to recover them to be able to sign without the 1/3″ rule and that “I It gives the sensation, to date of today I do not see it in the Barcelona”.

Barça, in this sense, has to clean up its accounts to think about the future, but from the Camp Nou they are already making plans for the next campaign, trusting that the forms will be achieved (with the sale of Barça Studios, BLM or with the agreement with the CVC investment fund) to be able to reinforce the template; especially the front. Xavi Hernández has made it clear that he wants a quality ‘9’ (Lewandowski) and a winger (Raphinha), but it will depend on what happens to Ousmane Dembélé, who today seems far from renewing his contract with the Barça entity.

Thus, according to the information from ‘Mundo Deportivo’, Barça is thinking about what its trident would be like in the event that ‘Lewa’ and Raphinha finally join to reinforce the culé squad. They would, in any case, become indisputable headlines: the Brazilian on the right and the Polish striker in the center of the attack, with the intention of replicating what he has done at Bayern, where this season alone he scored 50 goals in all competitions.

Ansu Fati would be the ideal companion, on the left. The youth squad, with the ’10’ on his back, is the great long-term star and a piece that will be essential for Barça in the coming years. The club hopes that he can get regularity next season and finally put the injuries behind him. It is the great illusion for the Catalans, but it is still an uncertainty and it will depend on his evolution.

Of course, on the bench a few players will remain on the bench, including a Ferran Torres for which 55 million euros were paid in this winter transfer market. The one from Foios is one of Barça’s great hopes for the future, but he has been irregular and could lose his status as the undisputed starter if new signings arrive, to end up entering the rotation.

Cases to solve

Finally, It will be necessary to see what will happen, finally, with Dembélé and Memphis Depay. The Frenchman has not given the final decision on his future and there is a month and ten days left until his contract with the Barça entity runs out. In any case, it is understood that Raphinha would arrive only if ‘Dembouz’ leaves. Likewise, the Dutch striker, whose future is in the air, is intriguing.

Barça would prefer to put him on the market and let him go, but Memphis has insisted on a few opportunities that he wants to stay. His contract expires in the summer of 2023 and it will be necessary to see what the plans are, finally, of the club and player. Arsenal is very interested in his signing, but it will be necessary to see if there is a favorable formula.
