Xavi Hernández has asked the FC Barcelona board for reinforcements, but the club's priority is to lower the wage bill at the point of exits. Riqui Puig and Óscar Mingueza, the most advanced operations
The directive of the FC Barcelona works to make the staff of face to the second half of the season and with the lupa put in the 2021-2022. Xavi Hernández already has given the seen well to several exits to go down mass salarial and facilitate the arrival of new signings in the summer. In this sense, Riqui Puig and Óscar Mingueza are two of the players in ramp of exit.
The midfield player is pretended by the Getafe to request of the own Quique Sánchez Flores, trainer of the team 'azulón'. However, the intention of the canterano is to remain and litigate by a place, since has agreement until June of 2023. For the moment, Riqui follows without playing and his cotización in the market follows going down (today contributes in 9 million euros in Trasnfermarkt, his value became of 25 'kilos').
The operation gone out luce like the best option for the player and for the club, but the midfield player is the one who has the last word. Something similar sucede with Sergiño Dest. The side will travel to his country to contest the triple date of eliminatory CONCACAF for the World-wide of Catar with United States and leaves knowing that it does not have the confidence of the míster.
Xavi has opted by Dani Alves like fixed from his arrival and the physical problems neither have helped to the player of 21 years. Nevertheless, Dest also has manifested his wish to remain and, for the moment, there are not offers by him. This season, Sergiño has alternated the place of side with the one of extreme by right, without too much success.
Contrary case is the one of Óscar Mingueza. As 'Superdeporte', Valencia advances the negotiation for ficharle like yielded until June, without option of compulsory purchase. José Bordalás has chosen him like better option to replace to Daniel Wass, the one who has agreed his traspaso to the Athletic of Madrid.
Possible barters with Valencia and with the Ajax
The cession of Mingueza could facilitate a change of index cards between Valencia and the Barça. The culés have manifested his interest by José Luis Gayà, although the player seems decided to renew with the team 'che'. Xavi would approve his arrival to reinforce the left side, where today Jordi Alba does not have clear-cut replacement.
A more feasible barter would be by gestarse with the Ajax. In Barcelona want to Nicolás Tagliafico and Alejandro Balde would be key in the operation. The Barça looks for to yield to the canterano of 18 years to give him shooting, since with Xaxi will not have too many minutes. However, the Napoli also bids by Tagliafico and, according to Italian means, already have made an offer of 7 million euros by the side.
