FC Barcelona is going through a tremendous crisis. The Catalan side suffered the presidency of Josep María Bartomeu, who finally left his charge and the club in a critical financial situation. Many players signed for a fortune and millionaire transfers were the reasons that originated this chaos.
But Barça has the pressure of being one of the best teams in the world, and they need to compete to win all the competitions they face. That is the reason why, despite their crisis, they will have to try to still be a competitive side at Europe anyway. The club is trying to gain the Champions League since many years ago, being the last time they won it on 2015.
Knowing the economic problems, Barcelona still want to sign some players during the transfer window and that is why they will be looking more carefully at free agents. There are several players who will end their contracts with their respectively clubs soon and that can start to negotiate to leave for free during the next summer.
There are a lot of them and some, as Memphis Depay or Sergio Agüero have appeared in the radar of the club during the last months. Just to mention, some in the same conditions are Eric García, Georginio Wijnaldum, David Alaba, Ángel Di María, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Julian Draxler, Juan Bernat, Jesse Lingard or even Sergio Ramos.
The future of Lionel Messi will be defined:
Until now, it is a mystery to talk about the future of Messi. The Argentinian legend has a contract remaining until June 2021 and is set to leave the Spanish side, being Manchester City and Paris Saint-Germain the most interested ones of signing him. His departure could modify the transfer policy of Barça.
