The FC Barcelona looks for reinforcements of level that are economic and in Paris Saint-Germain there is a player that interests and that it could arrive free
The tremendo economic impact that has had the sanitary crisis of the coronavirus on the teams of football -have stopped all the competitions and the clubs have lost million euros after not receiving the income of taquillas and television rights- has forced to the players to reduce his wages and to the sportive directions to think in alternative strategies of face to the next market of signings.
The FC Barcelona prioritises the signings of Lautaro Martínez (Inter of Milan) and of Neymar (Paris Saint-Germain), two very expensive options but, as it ensured the Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu this Monday, would be near at hand if the Italian club and the French accept a barter of footballers. Another economic option, of course, is the one to reinforce with footballers that finish agreement this month of June and that, therefore, arrive to cost zero.
From the technical office culé, headed by Éric Abidal, considers that one of the positions that needs reinforce is the one of the left side. According to the informations published by the newspaper Sport this Tuesday, Layvin Kurzawa, that finishes agreement with Paris Saint-Germain this summer, would be one of the alternative that the sportive direction handles like acting of Jordi Alba for the next course.
Of course, first it would have to close the exit of Junior Firpo, that has not convinced, to do gap to another footballer. With Thomas Tuchel like technician of the PSG, Kurzawa has lost leadership and has turned into acting usual of Juan Bernat. His contractual situation would favour his arrival to the Barça, although the previously quoted media warns that Liverpool, Arsenal, Inter of Milan and Naples also go behind the French.
The 'curse' of the left side
In summer of 2018, Lucas Digne was traspasado to the Everton by wish express of the own footballer, that did not conform with being the acting usual of Jordi Alba in the FC Barcelona. The club decided not making any signing to cover the drop of the French and opted for trusting Juan Miranda, of the filial, like alternative to the of L'Hospitalet in this left-handed lane.
The problem was that the canterano did not finish to convince to play in the first team since, with the 19 years that had then, seemed too green to play to the maximum level. Thus, the Barcelona sportive direction attended to the market and bet by Junior Firpo, that arrived pertinent of the Betis in return of 18 million fixed euros more other 12 in variables. Alas, the performance of the Hispanic-dominican has been grey, by what poses his sale to do gap to another signing.
