Getafe did not hesitate to exercise his right of purchase for Marc Cucurella and a month ago he decided to pay six million to keep it. But Barça kept a buyback option for 15 'kilos' that they could exercise. That would put Junior Firpo on the market
The FC Barcelona carries years in a without living by fault of the left side. Jordi Alba has occupied this position with brilliance since it arrived of Valencia in 2012, but from does time looks for him without success an acting of guarantees. The one of L'Hospitalet de Llobregat fulfilled in March 31 years and every time needs with more urgency something of air along the season. East was the reason by which paid 18 million euros and other 12 in variables by Junior Firpo the past summer.
But the ex of the Real Betis has not fulfilled with the expectations that generated and in any moment has given the feeling to be comfortable in the Barça. The carrilero has had opportunities as to settle in the team by the injuries of Alba, but has not achieved it neither with Ernesto Valverde neither with Quique Setién. The santanderino was his main valedor in the group bético and trusted that it woke up to his orders, but before the coronavirus there were not symptoms of this.
By this reason, the Barcelona already think in the sportive planning of the course that comes and are stirring distinct options for the left-handed side. One of them would be to give him a second opportunity to the international Sub-21 Spanish, but also thinks in doing box with him and go to by somebody of the house. This player would be Marc Cucurella, that carries two years doing merits far of the City Condal with the aim to call the attention of the culés.
The one of Alella has been this campaign one of the most stood out players of one of the best teams of LaLiga, the Getafe. To the orders of José Bordalás has gone out in left band taking advantage of his depth, speed, dynamism and work. It has played and shined by in front of the side almost always and this is something that concerns, since in the Barcelona would be more carrilero, but only has 21 years and in the Masia showed that it can surrender in this position.
The group azulón announced does a month that would exert the option of purchase by 6 million euros that saved in summer when the Barça decided to yield to the Catalan. A ridiculous quantity by a footballer that to day of today has a lot of market in Europe. It says that it could have teams that would offer thrice more by him, but the plans of the barcelonistas would be others. In the agreement of Cucurella, the culés saved another option of repurchase of 15 millions that could do effective this same summer.
The arrival of Cucurella would mean the goodbye of Junior
'Catalonia Ràdio' informs that the blaugrana are posing to go back to repescar to the of Alella paying this quantity. In this occasion, on the contrary that what sucedió does a year when it returned of the Eibar, would be so that the side remained in the City Condal. This would be an indicativo clear that the plans regarding Junior would be to look for him a traspaso, since the Catalan would be the elected to occupy his square in the staff.
