FC Barcelona signed Nélson Semedo in 2017 to make Dani Alves forget and take over the right-back. But the Portuguese has not done it and could leave this summer, leaving only Sergi Roberto and creating a new problem on that side
Dani Alves Left the too high slat in the right side when it decided to leave to the Juventus of Turín does years. The Brazilian is for a lot of the best or one of the best carrileros of the history and in the FC Barcelona left a gap that anybody has been able to fill up afterwards. That Sergi Roberto have been the one who more has played in this place from his exit says a lot of the problem that has had the Barça in this position.
The canterano happened to the side in 2016 just when the Brazilian went . Luis Enrique was the one who decided to put to the Catalan there and since has played more in band that in the centre of the field, his original place. But in the Barcelona did not want a side reconverted and therefore they decided to go to by Nélson Semedo in 2017. The club paid almost 36 million euros by the ex of the Benfica and thought that with this signing would solve the ballot.
But three years afterwards can say that the Barça is again in the same place that in 2016. Roberto, that began this season in the midfield at last, returned to the defence to the little of the beginning of course in front of the fault of confidence in Moussa Wagué, that had to be the acting of Semedo. The Senegalese did not convince to Ernesto Valverde and the one of Reus retold so much or more than the luso, that in summer loomed with going if it was not indisputable.
Now, the one of Lisbon is sounding with strength like possible reinforcement of Juventus of Turín and Inter of Milan in the operations of Miralem Pjanic and Lautaro Martínez. In the club do not finish of this satisfied with his performance and would be had to leave him go out. In other words the Barça could remain this summer with alone Sergi Roberto of side, just as in 2016, since Wagué neither goes to be followed.
In front of this panorama, are sounding with strength two players to fill up the gap that leave the Portuguese. It treats of Mattia Of Sciglio and of Sergiño Dest, two footballers of profiles almost opposite. The Italian would form part of the traspaso with the Juve that would include to Pjanic and would arrive like temporary solution, since it does not give the profile to title. The Dutch of the Ajax, instead, yes has potential to be important to half and long term in the Barça, but those that have seen him say that it is something green to be it right now.
Emerson is the alternative that already has the Barça
The big alternative that has to both players a Barcelona that it was previsor was Emerson Royal. The Brazilian is by agreement player of the Betis until 2021, but paying a compensation would become culé this same summer. This season and average that carries in Seville has been a máster for him and this course has finished to confirm like one of the big right sides of LaLiga. His problem is that it is non-EU, but with Neymar Jr almost impossible and leaving free the square of Arturo Vidal, that has foot and half was, could not being an obstacle. It will be necessary to see how finish all and who finish accompanying to Sergi in the place.
