New Barcelona sporting director Robert Fernández is a man who likes to talk a lot, and that’s good in a sense, because it gives us a better look at what the club is doing.
One of the topics Barça fans are most curious about is whether or not the Catalan giants are interested in signing a replacement to Pedro Rodríguez after the Spaniard packed his bags and went to Chelsea. The Blaugrana have been linked with at least three potential ‘MSN’ backups: Celta Vigo striker Nolito, Dynamo Kyiv star Andryi Yarmolenko, and French prospect Anthony Martial, who went to Manchester United for €386 billion (approximately).
The summer transfer window has been shut, and the Treble winners were banned from it anyway, which made them wait for a few months until January, when they’re finally able to buy, sign and register players. And there is a good chance that the club will look for a new Pedro.
“There are four months to study the arrival of a replacement, but the winter market is always complicated”.

Zubi 2.0 is right there. The January window is a tough one, because there is only 30 days and all teams get desperate to strengthen their squads because of injuries or poor performances — I’m looking at you, Wenger –, but Barça is an attractive place and seem to have become better at signing players lately.
What do you feel, Blaugranes? What would be your favorite name to replace Pedro?
