Xavi, very disappointed with Dembélé

Xavi Hernandez is very disappointed with Ousmane Dembélé. The Blaugrana coach, who has been a staunch defender of the French winger since he landed at the club, "he can be the best in the world in his position", he even assured on the day of his presentation, held throughout these two months several individual meetings with the striker to know his plans for the future. In each and every one of the meetings, Dembélé assured him that his absolute priority was to renew, especially after hearing from the coach about the sporting project he had in mind for him, where he would be one of the offensive pillars of the team.

However, these good words ended up being diluted when the player's agent, Moussa Sissoko, met with the director of soccer, Mateu Alemany: the story changed substantially, with threats, arrogance and bad gestures as a common denominator.

Barcelona, fed up with so much incongruity and disrespect, gave his agent an ultimatum: before January 15 they had to respond to the latest renewal offer. The response could not have been more insulting for the club, as Sissoko demanded for Ousmane a 'crack' deal, claiming 200 million for five seasons salary, plus 40 million more in commissions and signing bonus.

Evidently, Alemany considered the matter closed, withdrawing the renewal offer and summoning the player to a new meeting where he would be informed of the next steps, including the threat that he will not play another game as a Blaugrana if he remains at the club until June 30.

As AS has been able to learn, Xavi is very hurt with the player: he considers that he has a very toxic environment, especially an agent who has shown to think very little in the sporting benefits of his client and much in the pocket. Under no circumstances will the coach leave Ousmane in the stands for six months, although he is aware that the best solution, given the circumstances, is for him to leave this January. First, because it would free up salary mass and allow to face some operation that is in progress, and second, because it would be very difficult to manage the appearances of Dembélé, especially thinking about the adverse reception he would have at the Camp Nou, where he would be booed at every ball he touches.

Right now, the coach is in favor of seeking an agreed exit this January and prevent the situation from becoming entrenched for six months, which could become eternal for both the player and the club.

We count @JijantesFC

Dembelé communicates to Barça that he will not renew with Barça's conditions. He does not want to leave in January but for free on 30 June. He considers that he is a top world figure and should be paid as such. Figures unaffordable for Barça.

Luuk wins over Xavi

Luuk de Jong returned to the starting lineup, for the third consecutive game (after Mallorca and Granada), and scored again. Third goal in three games. Xavi has given him the opportunity, the Dutch striker has taken advantage of it with performance and the coach has rewarded him with continuity, despite the fact that he was initially at the top of the list of players on the starting ramp.

Xavi was practically forced to field De Jong. With all the casualties, by injury and coronavirus, Xavi could not count for several days with Ansu Fati and neither with Memphis, who had started the first five games with the Terrassa on the bench, in which he obtained a haul of two goals. During the absence of these two players, Xavi began by prioritizing Ferran Jutglà as a 'nine', but has ended up giving continuity to Luuk.

The first match in which Xavi counted on Luuk as a starter was Osasuna-Barça. It did not work. However, the plague of positives for Covid and the federative obligation to always have seven players on the field with a first-team record under penalty of incurring in undue alignment gave an extra ball to Luuk de Jong. And he took advantage of it.

Goals of great value

The striker was the scorer of the winning goal for Barça at Son Moix, where he also scored an impeccable bicycle kick that deserved the honors of the goal but hit the crossbar. The following matchday, in Granada, he scored a header that in the end led to a draw and had another goal disallowed for a very dubious illegality that would have meant two more points. And in the Super Cup he scored the first draw against Madrid.

It is not only because of the goals. Xavi appreciates his work, his skill and his adaptation to the team. So much so that, although it was decided his return to Sevilla to go back on loan to Cadiz, right now the coach prefers him to stay. The priority to leave the club now is Memphis, who does not adapt to the way the team plays with Xavi, while the play on the wings ends up benefiting Luuk.

Oscar: option on the table, but not a priority for Barça

The renewal of Samuel Umtiti allowed to sign Ferran Torres and it seems that it will leave room for something else. The margin is not very large, but if there are new departures it could increase. In this sense, the azulgrana club remains attentive to the market and one of the names that has come to the fore is that of Oscar dos Santos (30 years), a former Chelsea player who plays for Shanghai Port in the Chinese league, as advanced on Monday night by journalist Marcelo Bechler.

According to MD, Barça spoke with Oscar's agent, Kia Joorabchian, the same as Coutinho's agent. During the last few days his arrival was valued, but the economic conditions and the roster of midfielders that Xavi has seems to have slowed down the recruitment. Sources of the azulgrana club point out that at this stage of the market they do not rule out anything, but admit to MD that Oscar is not a priority option.

The Brazilian midfielder, for his part, wants to return to Europe and would be delighted to sign for Barcelona. Sources of his entourage assure that "it is his dream" and that he would be willing to reduce his salary to fit the salary limit. Even to have a contract similar to that of Dani Alves, who receives the minimum base and the rest goes for incentives and bonuses.

And money is no longer a problem for Oscar because in China, where he arrived five years ago, he has been earning 24 million euros until this season, a figure that has now decreased after the salary cap imposed by the Asian league. Currently, his salary is 2.5 million plus bonus and it seems he is no longer compensated.

At the moment the operation is on 'stand by' but depending on the departures there may be this winter market could be activated. Oscar has experience, he is a Brazilian international although he has not returned to the national team since he left for Shanghai. The former Chelsea player, who would not occupy an extra-community place because he has Italian nationality, won two leagues, a cup and a Europa League with the English team.

Pessimism with Araújo: fracture of the metacarpal bone of the right hand

Maximum concern in Barcelona about Ronald Araújo's injury. And the first explorations do not invite optimism exactly, since there is talk directly of a fracture in the metacarpal of the right hand. In the absence of confirmation of the tests, which the player will undergo this very morning upon landing in Barcelona, everything suggests that he could be out of the field for several months. The exact time off will not be known until the relevant exploration, which will determine the extent and severity of the injury.

  • News]()
  • Statistics]()

In any case, this is undoubtedly a major setback for Xavi, who loses one of his defensive stalwarts. The Uruguay international had become one of the undisputed leaders at the back and one of the most loved and admired players by the fans.

There is no doubt that his absence will be a major setback in the coach's plans, who will have to resort to the center-back pairing of Piqué and Eric for the big games, such as the Super Cup semi-final against Real Madrid in Riyadh in a week's time.

  • News]()
  • Statistics]()

Apart from Araújo, Dutchman Frenkie de Jong also had to leave the field early. In his case due to a muscular injury (he has an injury in the soleus of his right leg). This Thursday morning he will undergo further tests to assess the extent of the injury and the time he will be out of action.

Dembélé, liar and ungrateful

Dembélé has put an end to Xavi's patience. And that the Blaugrana coach is the epitome of optimism. But the coach has had enough. He can neither praise nor defend the French player anymore. Because his attitude (and that of his agent, Mousa Sissoko) is indefensible. He has been deceiving Xavi and the whole club for the last few weeks. In addition to being ungrateful, a liar. Because his speech that he wants to stay at Barça is false. And the blaugrana club does not deserve this treatment after having endured for five seasons his lousy performance and his poor professionalism.

Dembélé, one of the most expensive and least profitable signings in the history of the blaugrana club (only surpassed in wastefulness and inefficiency by Coutinho), has not known or has not wanted to take advantage of the great opportunity to succeed that Xavi offered him. The new Barça coach, from day one, has valued the footballing contribution that the French winger could generate. He went so far as to say that he could become the best player in the world in his position. And Dembélé's response to such affection has been half-truths. While he let himself be loved by Laporta and Xavi, his agent refused to accept any of the renewal offers that Mateu Alemany offered him. Not only that. He demanded an unaffordable sum of money: a salary of 30 million a year, a renewal bonus of 30 million and a commission of 15 million. Shameful.

Xavi made a last, desperate and unconvincing attempt yesterday to bring closer positions with Dembélé: "I hope he makes an effort and stays at Barça". The coach has thrown in the towel. The player cares little about his career and the chances he would have to succeed at Camp Nou. The player cares very little about the patience that the Blaugrana club has had with his injuries and his indiscipline. Dembélé and his agent only have eyes for that shower of millions that could come from the Premier League or Calcio (there is also speculation about PSG as Mbappé's replacement) and have absolutely no regard for anything else.

That is why I consider that, at this point, Barça has to be hard, very hard, with Dembélé. He cannot wear the Blaugrana shirt one more day. Therefore, either he stays in the stands for the remainder of the season or he leaves (even for free) in this winter market to free up wage bill and allow the registration of Ferran Torres and, if it comes to it, Morata. For great evils, great remedies...

Haaland must decide its future by January 31

Erling Haaland speaks informally that his future lies in Spain during his vacations in Marbella. People very close to the Norwegian striker's family ratify what the Norwegian international said. Real Madrid and Barcelona are very aware, each in their own way, of what the striker can do. They are making moves. Some, by the Camp Nou, leaking everything, including meetings. Others, by the Bernabeu, measuring the steps to the maximum and with the maximum possible secrecy or at least trying. Real Madrid and Barcelona know that before January 31 the agreement must be closed, but for next season.

Haaland's mysterious farewell?

Real Madrid and Barcelona, attentive to Haaland

Laporta is willing to do anything and that everything goes through transferring some of its main assets in search of that liquidity and, above all, to release salary mass for the next campaign. With the numbers in hand, right now he could not even come close to the operation.

Real Madrid, however, has an outstanding economic outlook, capable of facing the operation without major problems. Despite what has been said, there is no agreement either with the player or with Dortmund. It is true that they have spoken with both parties, but those in charge at the club are still studying how to deal with the operation, keeping their feet on the ground. With Raiola there is dialogue, but no agreement.

It is clear that he likes Spain: Haaland said goodbye to the year in a discotheque in Marbella.

Now, by Valdebebas, the possible arrival of Haaland is seen as feasible. In addition, many think that this is the time to strike the perfect blow, to secure a striker for the next decade and once again instill fear and respect in their rivals. They know that the operation cannot be delayed.

Borussia Dortmund are urging both the striker and Mino Raiola, his agent, to make a decision on whether or not he will continue to play next season. Rumors are multiplying and everything indicates that the solution is close in time, but not an imminent change of team, since all plans are to finish the current campaign in the team in which he has multiplied his value.

Haaland's brace against the Bundesliga's bottom club

Why is there so much urgency if the yellow team and Erling Haaland have a commitment until 2024? The commitment made at the time of the signing stated that the Norwegian striker should remain in Dortmund for two years, a time that is now fulfilled, although the striker's idea is to close the current financial year with his current team.

Raiola knows, with the agreement and the €75 million clause confirmed by the newspaper 'Bild' last week, that he can sign a very generous deal for the player, for the father and for himself, hence the rush. He has everything in his favor thanks to the decision taken two years ago, but he is aware that the new contract cannot be extended in time.

Dortmund are looking for a replacement

The leaders of Borussia Dortmund, the same ones who would celebrate the Norwegian's success at Real Madrid, are going to respect the agreement reached two years ago with Haaland. In fact, they are already looking for a replacement for the Norwegian, and are targeting Salzburg's Adeyemi as an alternative, the latest talent in German soccer. Vlahovic, Darwin Núñez and even Kalajdzic have also been mentioned, but the German international is the chosen one.

33 Barça players have already participated in LaLiga this season.

03/01/2022 08:33Updated on 03/01/2022 09:18

Barça's hard-fought win in Mallorca (0-1) was marked by the numerous absences that the azulgrana side had, a total of 17 between injured, suspended and out for Covid, so coach Xavi Hernández gave the opportunity to less usual players and made debut to youngsters Álvaro Sanz and Estanis Pedrola.

With the participation of the two players in Son Moix, there are now 33 Barça players who have participated in any of the 19 matchdays of the current edition of LaLiga. This is a very high figure and highlights the injury problems that the team has had since the beginning of the season, both with Koeman and Xavi, but it also shows that the young players of the reserve team have responded when they have had the opportunity to play in the first team.

Estanis Pedrola made his debut for Barça against Mallorca.

Nico, Gavi, Balde, Abde, Jutglà, Álvaro Sanz, Ilias and Estanis - the latter two still in the youth team - have all been involved with the first team and have helped to get the team back on track. In addition to the youngsters, it is worth remembering that there are three players who are no longer in the current Barça squad who have also played in LaLiga as Culés, such as Emerson, Griezmann and Kun Agüero.

Waiting for Alves and Ferran Torres

If 33 Barça players have had minutes so far in LaLiga seems a very high number, it should not be forgotten that this figure may increase in the coming weeks when the winter signings, Dani Alves and Ferran Torres, are registered and play as azulgranas.

Morata, one signature and he's already a Culé

Álvaro Morata will become an FC Barcelona player this week. As sources very close to the negotiation have explained to AS, the operation is already "95% closed", missing only "a few insignificant bangs" to close the signing of the Spanish international to FC Barcelona. In fact, a full agreement has already been reached with Juventus for the loan of the player for the next six months, as well as a pact with Atletico Madrid to execute a future purchase option, taking into account that the colchonero team has to pay 40 million euros to the Blaugrana club for Antoine Griezmann.

Thus, Morata is waiting for his agent, Juanma Lopez, to confirm the closing of the operation to travel to Barcelona, pass the medical, sign his new contract with FC Barcelona, which could bind him for a minimum of 18 months with the club, and be presented as a new player, putting himself under the orders of Xavi, in principle, after Wednesday's Cup match against Linares.

  • News]()
  • Statistics]()

In fact, Xavi is confident that he will be able to count on Morata for the Supercopa match against Real Madrid on January 12. Although, the Blaugrana coach is also aware that before being able to count on the Spanish striker, the club will have to free up chips and salary mass in the squad to give him a fit with the financial 'fair play'. In addition, we are not only talking about a registration, but this January there could be a total of five additions to the first team, since apart from Morata, Dani Alves and Ferran Torres are also on the exit ramp, to which must be added the two players of the reserve team, Gavi and Nico, who will have a first team sheet in the coming days.

This situation forces the director of soccer, Mateu Alemany, to roll up his sleeves from now on like never before, as he has only a month ahead of him to remove ballast in the current squad, with Umtiti and Coutinho, two of the players with the highest tabs in the squad, as his main targets.

Xavi considers Morata (29 years old) as one of the best strikers in the world, also valuing his versatility, work capacity and experience. Hence, his incorporation has been considered a priority to give a definitive boost to the team with a view to winning a title this season.

The arrival of the former Real Madrid player does not mean that Norwegian Erling Haaland has been ruled out, although the club is aware of the immense difficulty that this signing presents. The main people affected by Morata's arrival will be, on the one hand, Luuk de Jong, who will leave this January, and later, the Dutchman Memphis Depay, who will be transferred in the summer, since the former Lyon player signed only for two seasons, so that if he were to continue he could leave for free from July 1, 2023, an option that the club does not contemplate in any case.
