Luis Enrique says that there is a good possibility of Barcelona being in the market for some couple of players during the January transfer window.
The club has been decimated by injuries in recent times, while the transfer window freeze upon the club has also affected their chances of improving the squad as they would have liked. Despite being the dominant in the league and Europe, Barcelona are aware that the team has issues with regard to squad strength. The club may struggle to have the same kind of results if they encounter a couple of injuries.
Barcelona star striker, Luis Suarez has said that a new contract with Barcelona is in the works and might be completed in no distant time.
Suarez is looking forward to a renewal of his contract with the Camp Nou dwellers and hopes to keep on playing with the El Classico giants for as long as possible. Suarez’s former deal with Barcelona was to expire by the middle of 2019, but with reports on ground, the striker might continue to stay on with the Luis Enrique's side for two or three more seasons.
It is reported that Lionel Messi will be signing a new deal with Spanish side Barcelona in the weeks to come.
This statement has been made by Barcelona’s sporting director, but he has refused to give a deadline. He said that there is no rush at the moment and that the priority at the moment is to make sure that the team is ready for the new season.
Luis Enrique is of the opinion that the current squad at Barcelona is the strongest in the club’s history.
The Spanish club has had some incredible moments since the turn of the millennium. They have won a whole host of titles to reduce the deficit between them and archrivals Real Madrid. This has been made possible only by the help of some incredible players like Ronaldinho and Lionel Messi. Recent squads, however, have been given the title as being the best in the club’s history, but Enrique feels that they could have been surpassed with the squad that he has assembled.
Barcelona sealed a second consecutive league title after a 3-0 win over Granada in the final day of the 2015-16 season.
Luis Enrique praised the performance of his players after having pipped Real Madrid by just one point. Barcelona seemed to be heading for a comfortable finish to the league title race only in the start of March.
Barcelona have been criticised for their media performance in a 2-0 win over Real Betis.
However, manager Luis Enrique has defended his players by saying that the media have been baselessly accusing them of performing poorly. A third consecutive win in the league helped Barcelona move closer towards the league title. They remain level on points with Atletico Madrid and just one point ahead of Real Madrid, but it is such a promising position than they were a few weeks ago. Barcelona had a 10 point advantage at the start of March, but three consecutive defeats have left them in a very vulnerable position.
