Plans: "We are looking for a forward, regardless of what happens with Suárez"

Barça's technical secretary announced that the club has two priorities: the arrival of an attacker and a defender. He assumed that center-back Eric Garcia is one of the big targets.


Ramón Planes, head of the Blaugrana technical secretariat, presented this Tuesday to Miralem Pjanic, “a player with a lot of quality, experience and who can contribute a lot to us”, said goodbye to Arturo Vidal, asked people for patience, "we know the profile of team and players we need, "he acknowledged that at least one forward and one defender will come, and ended up highlighting the City center back, Eric García, as" a player who has Barça level. "

Will Luis Suárez continue?

He has been an important player for us and we must respect him, but we are in a process of change, with a new coach and new ideas. The market ends on October 5 and many things can happen, always speaking with the utmost respect towards the player.

Will the arrival of a new striker depend on the departure of Suárez?

We have been working for months on improving the equipment. A mix of experienced and quality players. We have been looking for a forward for a long time and it is already public, regardless of the exits that close at the end. Barça has to aspire to have the best talents and we are in that process, but not just any footballer can play for Barça.

Is Eric García a priority?

The results will be seen at the end. There are many people behind. It is true that we are looking for a defense. Eric is a homemade player and one that we are valuing. We are working in a very difficult market, but we have the objective of creating an exciting team, with a great future and talent. Eric fulfills the profile we need, but there are also other names that are interesting and that have not appeared in the media.

Is Arturo Vidal already an Inter player?

It is true that the negotiations are well advanced. I thank you for these two years, a player with a huge heart and dedication. I cannot confirm figures yet.

Are you concerned about the low price you are selling to your players for?

There is little movement as clubs are affected by the coronavirus. We know the team and player profile we want. You have to be patient. Our players are highly respected in the market. It will be long. The most important thing is to be calm and with very clear ideas.
