'STEAL' FROM SEVILLA?
Fernando Navarro, on the agenda to replace Mateu Alemany
FC Barcelona is looking for the ideal replacement for Mateu Alemany, who will leave the club on June 30. Until now, there is a long list of alternatives and Fernando Navarro, from Sevilla, would have been the last name to join the agenda
The FC Barcelona, in addition to working in the reinforcements for the first team in the next season, is very attentive to the movements in the dispatches of the Spotify Camp Nou. In front of the exit of Mateu Alemany with destination to the Aston Villa, and the possibility that Jordi Cruyff also do his cases, the directive of Joan Laporta moves in the 'market' in research of solutions so that it do not remain weakened the sportive direction of face to the window of transfers estival.
The option of Deco is the one who more strength has taken, but also is the one who more generates doubt because the Brazilian does not have experience in similar charges and has worked 'only' in the representation of footballers, Raphinha one of them. This week will begin the negotiations with the exfutbolista, but is not the only name that is in the diary. 'Sportive world' has informed that Fernando Navarro, of the Seville, also is in the list of candidates.

The exfutbolista, that formed in the inferior categories of the club of the City Condal and did life in the club between 200 and 2006, is at present working in the sportive direction of the Seville. From 2019, it has turned into the right hand of Monchi and one of the 'characters' more important in matter of signings for the Andalusian club. The Barça have a very good relation with Navarro and could be in the diary like an alternative.
According to the before quoted source, from the City Condal save "good contacts" and appreciate positively the work that comes developing in the Seville in these last years. Already Víctor Font, when it posited to the Barcelona presidency in 2021, wanted to include it in his organisation chart (in which it also was Xavi Hernández), but in front of the victory of Joan Laporta remained in the forget the option.
To waits of what happen with Jordi Cruyff
Everything seems to indicate to that the option that Navarro recale in the Barcelona dispatches would be compatible, even, with the arrival of Deco. 'MD' explains that "the ex Catalan defence answers to a profile that is missing in the Barcelona technical office, since it is a specialist in 'scouting' and analyse the market", by what would be operations in which they can work of simultaneous way waiting for knowing if finally Jordi Cruyff will remain a year more.
