    I think the strategy is different now with the new Third division format being a higher level than the old Segunda B, while still existing outside of LaLiga.

    We can stay at that level and fully focus on youth development so don't really need the experienced forwards of old.

    10-15m budget for higher level strikers for example. Now we even have mid range prem shit like Brighton signing big prospects and loaning them straight away out for a year or two. Better be at Barca B with a chance to promote for a season or two than be at a Belgian club on loan for example.

    We tried getting young attacker, it was just Gustavo Maia so was a dud.
    tbf Spain as a whole aren't good in producing attackers and especially strikers. There is a reason Morata gets starts there at age of 30.
    Outside of that the market isn't Barca favor, South Americans will never sell you their attacker for cheap and even if they does the players has better options than Barca B. That is why clubs like City and Chelsea are more attractive, they simply have bigger network and bigger ability to spend on those young attackers (not like they did well for their teams anyway)
    Barca has been historically weak in terms of their scouting with rest of Europe, we barely get talents from France, Portugal, Belgium that is worth anything of significance. SA we have much better luck.

    Would say it isn't attacker problem, but more of ability to expand that network of scouts across the globe

    We've officially signed Nil Ruiz (GK, contract until 2024) and Alvaro Nunez (RB, 2023).

    ES LO QUE HAY...
