Top 5 Barca: Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi, Philippe Coutinho, Nolito, Sergio Aguero, Claudio Bravo


WHY LIVERPOOL’S COUTINHO SHOULD BE BARCELONA-BOUND COME JANUARY
There are exactly 85 days for the transfer window to reopen, and Barcelona would rather see it open now than wait for about three months to drastically react to their wayward start to the new season. With last weekend’s loss to Sevilla their second in three league games, the shipwreck many feared for the Catalans is closer to reality than dreams. It isn’t that the January transfer window is a guaranteed fix to the current problems at the club, which run deep as proved by the recent defensive meltdowns considering the fact the Blaugrana kept 33 clean sheets in their 60 games only last season. But at least it provides the club with more options to correct their mistakes and strengthen their squad, which at the moment can be compared to an amateur team struggling to find players to complete the eleven.

6 REASONS WHY BARCELONA WILL GET BACK ON TRACK AFTER JANUARY
Barcelona look a depleted side at the moment. Without the services of Lionel Messi and Andres Iniesta, FC Barcelona look a changed side. Unlike last season, the Catalans have been horrendous defensively. The situation is not desperate as results aren't that terrible, but it certainly doesn't look too promising either. Click here for the 6 points to look forward to once the transfer window reopens on January.

Lionel Messi prioritising Barcelona and has no plans to force his comeback
Lionel Messi will adapt his calendar to keep in line with Barcelona's in terms of his recovery from a knee injury. It's not that the Argentina star doesn't have his national team on his mind; but the number one objective it to return to fitness without forcing things. So far, things are going well. On 'El Club de la Mitjanit' on Catalunya Radio, they have confirmed what SPORT reported on September 28. If Messi forces his recuperation, he could appear on the pitch again inside six weeks. But the medical report after the Las Palmas game said Luis Enrique would have him back within seven to eight weeks.



Celta Vigo star Nolito refuses to be drawn into speculation linking him with Barcelona
During a press conference, he said: 'I try to be calm and disconnected from everything that is said about me. I try to be the same as I always am and stay happy. 'I am calm and I just want to continue doing well with Celta. I have a contract with Celta and I am truly focused on them. I do understand that things are being said. I woke up to breakfast and saw myself on the cover of the newspapers in Barcelona. Whatever has to happen will happen.'

Claudio Bravo got angry when asked about Ter Stegen | Video
Claudio Bravo: "When I'm in Barcelona, we can talk about it. If you want, you can come to Barcelona and we tackle it. Now I'm in the national team. If you want, take a plane to Barcelona. We can go out and have lunch, I can be your gide in the city and we do a half-hour interview. I won't pay you the ticket. I don't want to start an argument with something I don't have to do."

Sergio Aguero ready to step into Messi's No.10 shirt
Aguero confirmed that he will take on the mythical number 10 during the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Ecuador and Paraguay: "I spoke to the kitman and he told me it is obligatory - someone has to use it because the numbers go from 1 to 23. I wore it for the first time against Bosnia, in a friendly in the United States, and Leo said: 'When I am not around, Kun has to use it.' Then he started to send me messages: 'Are you going to wear it? You're not going to chicken out? Now every time he is absent it is up to me to wear it. I am happy to pull on the shirt, but it obviously belongs to him."

Who will win La Liga in 2017/18?

The 2016/17 season was not one that we Barca fans will want to remember. We won’t talk about how that lot from Madrid won La Liga. We definitely won’t talk about Juventus. So, what else is there? Well, of course, there is the future. Let’s talk about that!
Things can change very quickly in football and if last season wasn’t one of our finest of all time, there’s no reason to say that the next one can’t be. The dust has yet to even begin to settle on the 2016/17 campaign, but here we assess our chances of reclaiming La Liga in 12 months’ time.
Barca are actually favourites in the very early La Liga betting for next term. We’re priced at odds of even money, whilst “they” are a shade longer at odds of 11/10. Indeed, lest any real gloom linger for too long, you should also know that the oddsmakers have installed Barcelona as favourites for next season’s Champions League too!
Lionel Messi and co are rated as a 9/2 shot to lift the Champions League in 2018. Again, that other bunch from the cap…

Neymar must stay to secure Barcelona long-term success

Neymar has been excellent for Barcelona since he joined the Catalan giants back in the summer of 2013. Despite the many question marks over whether he would accept to share the spotlight with Lionel Messi, his professionalism off the pitch and even the legality of his transfer, the Brazilian youngster has made a remarkable impact and deservedly become a Camp Nou favourite.

As our partners as Sbobet Mobile know, Barcelona are not currently leading the La Liga table but nobody in their right mind would rule them out of retaining the title. If the Blaugranas are to leapfrog Real Madrid before the end of the season and win the league for the third consecutive season, Neymar has a huge role to play in the nine games remaining.

Fortunately for Cules, Neymar is currently playing the best football of his whole career. Fully established at both club and international level, the No.11's confidence and excellent form makes him a constant danger that rivals constantly struggle to contain -- …
