FC Barcelona knows that for next season its starting left back will be Alejandro Balde, but from then on it has some doubts to cover and that area and will seek to define what plan to use to solve that

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Jordi Alba announced that it will not be still in the FC Barcelona the next season and in the Barcelona club evaluate how cover of the best way the left side with the exit of one of the captains of the first team. Ensured for the next season are Alejandro Balde and Marcos Alonso, but there are other alternatives for the position in the case that the technical body want to a bit of additional help for the ex Chelsea.

The reality is that Xavi Hernández has confirmed more this season in Alonso like left-handed head office, and although it will finish arriving free Iñigo Martínez, the míster can keep in his posture of not returning to the ex player of the Fiorentina to his natural position if it does not offer him what he search. Thus in the team culé have some option more for a position that will be of Balde by several years more, without any doubt.

Of elder to lower consideration

The main alternative is the signing of an able side to play in the two bands. Joao Cancel likes a lot and fulfils with this profile, but the Barcelona team needs to negotiate a cession with the Manchester City and besides compete with the Bayern and Arsenal if finally they bid by him. Another luso, Diogo Dalot, also has this experience and follows without renewing further of 2024 with the Manchester United.

Of here in more the others three posibiliaddes seem much further that the two previous, but certainly also are totally possible. One of those is the return of Sergiño Dest, the one who will not keep in the AC Milan after a 'grey' session in Italy and with Ronald Koeman had good parties like carrilero left-handed, although Xavi has left clear that does not have the American.

Two alternatives that really do not seem to be solutions

Finally it remains the possibility to have a canterano for a position that has formed big footballers, like the own Alba, in addition to Balde, Grimaldo or Cucurella. Right now the Argentinian Román Vega fulfilled his first season in the filial, whereas the joker in cases of emergencies could become Sergi Roberto, the one who has agreed to renew by a season more, having a second as optional.
