FC Barcelona will have to consider what to do if Iñaki Peña, the team's second goalkeeper, ends up leaving in the near future. He will have to decide if he chooses to go into the market to sign a guaranteed backup for Marc-André ter Stegen, or if he prefers to promote one from La Masia

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has several appearances to improve of face to the next season, being some of them of great priority, like the incorporation of a mediocentro defensive stellar and a left extreme 'top'. Other appearances, by the moment, could consider secondary, as it is the case of the goal. Nevertheless, east is an area of the field that the combined Barcelona does not have to neglect.

In principle, there is not doubt that the Catalan group has Marc-André ter Stegen like guardameta title indisputable. The germano has agreement until 30 June 2028 and has showed an exceptional performance and guarantees in his position. However, the discussion centres in who would have to be the second goalkeeper of the team, behind the historical '1' culé.

Iñaki Crag could finish going out of the FC Barcelona

If it does not occur at all out of the common, the FC Barcelona could follow trusting Iñaki Crag like acting in the goal. The Alicante, canterano of the club, in this season, when it needed him because of the problems of back of ter Stegen that required surgical intervention, answered properly in the majority of the commitments that faced. Nevertheless, also it is true that his numbers saw affected (32 annotations fit in 17 meetings), partly because of the bad moment so that it crossed the background line culé in this period, where the errors became the norm.

From the club, in addition to evaluating this situation, do not seem descartar the option that the exjugador of the Galatasaray look for an exit of the Barcelona cast. Independently of the mentioned previously, Crag has showed to have solid conditions to play with greater regularity and even aspire to the titularity in a competitive group. Therefore, it would not be descabellado think that it could give the step and look for an opportunity out of the City Condal. In this case, the Barça probably would receive offers by him, especially of squares of LaLiga EA Sports, being the more rumoreados recently the Real Betis and the UD The Palms.

The stages that evaluates the Barça if the Alicante finish going out

In this stage, and considering the fact that the FC Barcelona finish giving off of the '13' culé, the one who has agreement with the club until 2026 and a value of market of eight million euros according to 'Transfermarkt', the Barcelona team could be debating between incorporating to another goalkeeper in conditions more favourable or give him the opportunity to one of the talents from the quarry. In this sense, the first option would be subject to the economic limitations of the 'Fair Play' Financial to which the Barcelonan square confronts .

On the other hand, for the second option, the Catalan picture could opt for rising definitively to Ander Astralaga, Biscayan goalkeeper of 20 years that this season has alternated titularities with the Barça Atlétic in the First RFEF (15 meetings) and announcements in the first team (38) positioning as the third guardameta. Therefore, it would not be surprising that gave him the opportunity to turn into the second 'guardian' to complete time if the cancerbero Alicante sacks in a near future.
