In the last days, Alvaro Morata has sounded strongly as the next reinforcement of the FC Barcelona for him winter transfer market. According to Spanish media, the Juventus forward, with a past at Real Madrid and Atlético, is an express request from coach Xavi Hernández. However, the Egarense has preferred not to refer in depth to his arrival in January. Along the same lines, the former Barça player has also spoken about the Norwegian Erling Braut Haaland of Borussia Dortmund.
“Let’s talk about those we have, we can talk about Ferran Torres and Alves, players who are going to help us a lot. The rest are hypotheses: Morata or Haaland are not Barça footballers and they do not concern me, nor does it improve or harm me to talk about them. The rest are assumptions ”, said the coach of Barcelona.
On the other hand, Xavi Hernández was hopeful about the possibility of Ousmane Dembélé renewing his contract with the Barça club and blaming the player’s agents for the fact that an agreement has not yet been closed.
After the club admitted in recent days that the renewal of the French international is quite complicated, the Catalan coach showed himself “Optimistic and positive” so that in the next meetings between both parties an agreement is closed, although he recognized that “Now it is far.”
“He will not be happier anywhere than at Barça. For me it is the best club in the world and I pass it on to my players. He has understood, the sports project may outweigh the economic issue and, therefore, I am still hopeful “, He said at the press conference prior to the match against Mallorca this Sunday.
With the arrival of the new year, Dembélé, whose contract with Barcelona ends in June 2022, can now negotiate with any other team.
