The economic situation at FC Barcelona is a significant handicap for the Catalan club as it keeps them from going into the market for some of its most liked targets.
The club was lucky enough to have tied Vitor Roque in the last summer transfer window, and a lot of credit for the agreement goes to the player himself and his agent, as they waited for Barcelona despite having gotten offers from several other clubs.
Barcelona gain time with Moscardo
However, other targets of the club may not always be willing to wait for the Catalans to make a move. But according to SPORT, there is another Brazilian with whom the Catalans may have gained further time. The Brazilian this time is Gabriel Moscardo, whose talent is highly appreciated by Barcelona.
The midfielder is liked particularly by Barcelona because of his young age, as his 18 years of age means he will have significant room for further development and is highly likely to see an increase in his market value in the coming years.
Still, the Catalans do not want to enter into a bidding war for the player. Previously, Moscardo’s club, Corinthians, was pushing for a sale before the end of the year to settle their accounts, but now everything indicates that the player will remain in Brazil till the coming summer at the earliest.
Deco had a meeting scheduled
The competition for the player’s signature is getting fierce, but the player himself is hopeful that Barcelona can enter the race and make the necessary efforts to get him.
Barcelona had also taken the initiative in this regard, as Deco’s recent trip to Brazil also had a meeting with Moscardo’s entourage on its schedule, but the meeting ultimately did not take place.
For now, the Catalans cannot guarantee that they will make a move for the midfielder, and the player himself may decide not to wait for the Catalans and move to another club.
Corinthians will also be hoping for a sale to another club, as other clubs may offer a greater sum for the player than Barcelona. However, the player not having committed to any European side yet is being taken as a sign by Catalans that he prefers a move to their club.
