Barcelona dreams about Salah, but what will be in reality? – The Sports Mirror – Sports News, Transfers, Scores


The recent season has been a transition one for Barcelona. The team lost their idol, Lionel Messi, before this season and tried to play without the Argentinian. Also, the change of head coach in autumn affected the situation – the arrival of Xavi Hernandez instead of Ronald Koeman forced the team to find a new balance in the game. And while the team was struggling in the middle of the season, closer to its end, Barca took their spot at the top of the La Liga table and showed plenty of great matches with attacking beauty, including the 4:0 victory over Real Madrid. However, the gap between the archrivals is big enough. Want more interesting news? Follow the link to the football predictions section and get fresh information every day.

Mohamed Salah

Nonetheless, it’s quite hard to predict their attacking lineup for the new season. The only two figures that will receive plenty of playtime are Ansu Fati and Ferran Torres. Young Spaniards have long-lasting contracts with Blaugrana and will definitely stay in the team. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang, signed this winter, has a good half of the season and scored a lot, but his motivation and salary can be an obstacle to renewing the contract.

Also, Barcelona needs a star player, preferably in the attacking line, to show their ambitions. Among the perfect variants are Liverpool’s wingers, Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, who were contenders for the Ballon d’Or in recent years and played effectively and stably for a long time. At the same time, Barcelona will need to pay for both of them, while the forwards are almost 30 years old and can hardly be regarded as long-lasting projects. So, it’s almost impossible to see neither Salah nor Mane in Catalonia this summer. By the way, we recommend visiting the site Odds2Win and getting the latest football predictions.

A similar situation with Robert Lewandowski, who was linked to Barcelona. However, it looks like the games of agents who want Bayern to offer a better new contract for the Polish striker – just like Salah’s ones negotiate with Liverpool. Although the transfer fee can be not so big, the salary will be huge, which is an obstacle for recent Barca. In such conditions, the team will probably try to play with two Dutch attackers who have contracts with Barcelona – Luuk de Jong and Memphis Depay. Also, the extension of a contract with Aubameyang is another cheap option.
