FC Barcelona had a disappointing 2019-20 campaign to say the least, missing out on the La Liga title for the first time in three years to arch rivals Real Madrid, who have emerged from their post-Ronaldo slump under Zinedine Zidane. The Blaugrana showed once again how over-reliant they are on Lionel Messi, how ineffective their transfer business has been, and how an ageing squad is struggling to come to terms with a return to a high-pressing style of play under Quique Setien.
In today’s Scout Report we’ll be looking at what Barça need to do in the immediate and long-term to ensure they can challenge with the very best once again. From skipping on the expensive Lautaro Martinez for a better-valued forward, to giving more gametime to La Masia graduates and sticking with their manager for the next 12 months, here are some ways in which the club can get itself back on track.
