Yesterday we heard the news that Kun Agüero had been injured and his recovery could last until November. This leaves Barça in a difficult situation, since, with the departure of Messi, and the injuries of Ansu Fati and Dembélé, the offensive plot does not seem to offer the guarantees of a team that aspires to win everything.
For this reason, the Blaugrana club would be considering the option of incorporating a forward to the squad. To this day, it does not seem that there is any name on the table, but the options are limited, since the Blaugranas cannot make a world-class signing due to their financial problems, but a low-profile signing would be insufficient for the aspirations of the club.
One of the options would be to sell Braithwaite, a player who does not convince, and thus there would be a gap in the squad for another salary and also, they would get some liquidity to sign with the transfer money. The Danish forward still has a good poster in the Premier League, so the operation could finally take place.
As we said, the options are very limited, the Blaugrana club repeatedly showed great interest in Lautaro Martínez, but it would be a costly signing, especially considering that Inter is already going to sell their other forward, Lukaku. In the Spanish League he has the option of Maxi Gómez, in whom they have already shown interest, and whose club, Valencia CF, is also in a bad economic situation in which he would need to sell to balance his balance sheets.
The truth is that this does not solve the sporting situation of Barça at all. After losing its top star, the club must consider making a major renewal of the squad, and if it cannot undertake signings, pull a lot of homegrown players, to alleviate the accounts and be able to return with more strength. Otherwise, they will only lengthen the problem until it is too big and can actually knock them out.
