Barcelona are weighing up a move for two possible Gerard Pique replacement in the winter transfer market.
The departure of Gerard Pique is expected to have a significant impact on the Barcelona team, both financially and athletically.
In fact, Pique’s absence should leave a significant gap in the defense, leaving Xavi with only four central defensive options.
Barcelona is considering making some moves in the January transfer window in light of this, according to Diario SPORT (h/t Barça Buzz). Inigo Martinez is one of the players the team is trying to sign.
In addition to Martinez, Barcelona are considering a move for a new right-back. This comes after reports that state that the Catalans are likely to get rid of Hector Bellerin in the January transfer window, with the Spaniard set to be handed a letter of freedom.
Barcelona is considering a move for a new right-back in addition to Martinez. This follows rumors that Hector Bellerin will likely be transferred out of Catalonia in the January transfer window after receiving a letter of freedom.
The loss of Bellerin could leave a gap at right-back, especially with Ronald Araujo recovering from surgery and Sergi Roberto continuing to struggle. Thus, the addition of a new right-back may be necessary at this moment.
It is unclear whether Barcelona will be able to afford any of the options, including Diogo Dalot of Manchester United and Stephane Singo of Torino, who have both been linked with moves.
