The Barça to come
Luis F. Rojo 11/01/2013
Barcelona is already on the lookout for players for next year's squad. The positions most in need of reinforcements are subject to several variables, but there is a blueprint to follow.
One of the obvious weak points is in goal. Víctor Valdés is going to leave in January and Zubizarreta has been trying to find a replacement for some time. Ter Stegen is best placed to take over and Zubi has just had a meeting with him. The idea is to make a definitive decision in January or February.
Meanwhile, other keepers such as Courtois and Reina are being considered for the role. But what Barcelona wants to avoid at all costs is to pay over €25 million for a new keeper. Ter Stegen would cost somewhere between €10 and 15 million. Plus there is also the chance that a second keeper will join him, given that Pinto's future is uncertain and he will most likely not continue.
Barça is also after a central defender. Mangala is one of the choice candidates, as he is set to leave Oporto at the end of the season. The only problem is the asking price. His release clause currently stands at €50 million, although this figure could come down. Hummels is also on the cards, as is Balanta.
Another player whose name has been mentioned in the last few hours is Lewandowski, who will leave Dortmund when his contract expires in June and most of Europe is eager to sign. His club could put him on the market in January so as to make some money out of him. The big European clubs will all be fighting over him however, and Barcelona isn't willing to fork out millions given the fact that he is not an urgent priority.
