  1. Yeah, Racitick is a great player we all know that, but the maine issue is that, barcelona should try and sign a great defender like macuinho of psg, Hummels of Borussia dortmound and try to make a move for gabi of Athletico madrid. We need defender and that is the main problem that we are facing. Barca should try and win La liga by next season and make the team strong. Also there’s no need of selling Alex sanchez because he his a great and strong player.
