Barcelona has had a frustrating time as of late after having a good start to the season. The club started strong, their attack was flowing, and the defense looked strong. But bad luck arrived in Catalonia, as goals started to dry up, injuries started growing, and the strength of the defense was gone. With the unbreakable defense becoming easy to break, Barca lost all identity.

But while the issues in the defense can be attributed to injuries, especially Marc Andre Ter Stegen, in the attack its down to the level of quality. The loss of Ousmane Dembele to PSG has been felt within the Barcelona attack as the lack of creativity is showing. Another factor is what appears to be the rapid decline of Robert Lewandowski. They say father time is undefeated, and its record is set to stand against Lewa. The striker has struggled to be consistent in front of goal this season and it’s impacting the team.

One of the attackers that Barcelona brought in this season to help get over the loss of Dembele and hoped to help Lewa with goalscoring, was the arrival of Joao Felix. The Portuguese international joined on loan from Atletico Madrid, and after a bright start to the season where it looked like he was back to his Benfica form, that form faltered. The goals dried up and now it will be interesting to see what Barcelona do in the summer when it comes to Felix’s future.

Barcelona welcomed the addition of a highly touted youngster this winter in Vitor Roque as the Brazilian joined from Athletico Paranaense. Vitor Roque is one of what Barcelona hopes to be many young talents that comes to the club as Barcelona look to finally properly rebuild and start the post Messi Era. They are linked with a few other great young talents including another Brazilian called Estevao Willian from Palmeiras. South America is not the only place Barca is shopping, as they are also scouting around Europe.
