Barcelona linked with two former Madrid strikers

Barcelona linked to two former Real Madrid strikers as Suárez's replacements

The Blaugrana side needs to boost their squad after Munir El Haddadi's departure, with four options being considered by the team's hierarchy.

Barcelona fans can expecte some moves in the ongoing transfer window, but some might not like some of their options to boost their squad.

According to reports by Catalan-based newspaper Sport, the Blaugrana side is interested in signing a backup striker for the second semester of the season. The report states that there have been four options presented to Ernesto Valverde, but two of them stand out due to their previous stints at Real Madrid.

Those options are Javier "Chicharito" Hernández and Alvaro Morata. The Mexican striker seems keen on moving away from West Ham, and returning to the Spanish league is one of his many options. "Chicharito" has been named as a potential signing for Betis and Sevilla, but his main goal will be to find consistency after an injury-plagued semester. El Tri's all-time top scorer played 33 games for Real Madrid in the 2014-15 season, scoring nine goals.

The links between Alvaro Morata and Barcelona have been a topic of discussion since late November, but the interest from the La Liga leaders has increased since Chelsea's desire to part ways with the player was made public. Atlético has been named as the potential destination for Morata, but his goalscoring skills could be put to good use by the Blaugrana side. The former Real Madrid striker scored 31 goals in 95 games for Los Blancos in five different seasons, most of them coming in from the bench.

The other options for Barcelona, according to Sport's article, are Celta's Maxi Gómez and Michy Batshuayi.

Barcelona's need for Suárez's replacement has increased since Munir El Haddadi left the team to join Sevilla. Given Suárez's age, the team can't afford losing the player due to an excess of playing time, and the signing of a new striker will be essential to their goals this season. Let's wait and see how fans react if the team's hierarchy chooses to sign a former Real Madrid footballer.
