How Angel Romero became an option for Barcelona

Defeated by 3 to 0 hairs Bayern Munich At the premiere of Champions League And I’m still shaking from the disassembly that removed the stars Lionel Messi And Antoine Griezmann, Barcelona desperately need a new striker.

According to the program “Halcones y Palomas” on Argentine television network TNT Sports, the solution to this drama may be the employment of an old acquaintance from football Brazilian.

Paraguay Angel Romero, who defended Corinthians Between 2014 and 2019 and winning two national titles by the club, he was offered to Barcelona, ​​along with his twin brother, Oscar, being analyzed by the culé board.

The 29-year-old will be an emergency booster for the Catalans to make up for the loss of Martin Braithwaite, who had to undergo knee surgery and will only return to the field after the end of the year.

With the Dane injured, Barcelona currently only have two “adult” strikers in case of the match: Dutchman Memphis Depay and Luke de Jong. Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembele and Sergio Aguero have also been injured or are on the way to recovering physically.

The prospect of Romero moving to Catalonia has sparked a wave of questions on social media. The main question was: ‘How could a player who was not outstanding in Brazil and without any previous experience in Europe end up being hired by one of the most important teams on the planet?’.

The problem is that Barcelona do not have many viable options at the moment to replace Braithwaite. With the Spanish transfer window closed, the club can only be strengthened by players who are out of contract with any team.

This is the case of the Romero brothers, who separated from San Lorenzo at the end of last month, after a series of disputes with the board of directors and the technical staff of the Argentine team. And not many other famous athletes.

According to the “Transfermarkt” website that specializes in covering the purchases and sales of football players, the former Corinthians fan is now the unemployed striker on the entire planet with the highest market value: 6 million euros (37.3 million Brazilian reals).

Some of the other options available for this position will be Britain’s Andy Carroll and Daniel Sturridge (both ex-Liverpool) and Argentina’s Carlos Tevez (formerly-Boca Juniors), Facundo Ferreira (ex-Benfica), Italian Sebastian Giovinco (former Juventus), and Spaniard Serge Enrich (formerly Levante).

But they are all much older than Romero, and they’ve reached the final stage of their careers and haven’t performed as much as Paraguay, who has already scored four goals in the South American World Cup qualifiers and was the main name of his team in the tournament. Looking for a job vacancy in Qatar 2022.

Despite their disastrous debut in the Champions League, the departure of their key player, and financial problems that undermined the rebuilding of their team, Barcelona had a good start to the season in Spanish Championship.

The team led by Ronald Koeman achieved two victories (Real Sociedad and Getafe) and one draw (Athletic Bilbao) in its first three commitments in the competition. Today, the match against Granada at the Camp Nou.

In the continental championship, the next Catalan opponent will be Benfica, on September 29, in Lisbon. The first group includes Bayern Munich and Dynamo Kiev of Ukraine. The top two winners of each segment advance to the round of 16.
