Lucas Digne arrived to the FC Barcelona like acting left side of Jordi Alba but with projection to argue him the place. It was two years in the Camp Nou where did not achieve to do with the place of the defender of L'Hospitalet, that kept a high line of performance that subtracted him possibilities to the French. The past summer, finally finish sold to the Everton.

The case of Digne seems something odd, and more after the recent interview that the player conceded to Goal, in which it recognised that "it was not planned to go me of the Barça and they did not want to sell me". Nevertheless, it went the trainer of the Everton, Marco Silva, the one who convinced him: "Really it lit a fire inside me and thought: Wow! Have many win to play for this club and with this trainer".

After speaking with the Portuguese trainer, the vision of Digne gave a radical change and asked him to the FC Barcelona that accepted the offer of the British club: "I Spoke with the Barça and asked them that they left me go. After some talks, accepted that that was my wish. I am appreciated therefore, because now I seat me happy in the Everton".

In spite of that Lucas Digne did not have all the minutes that had liked him in his stage in the Camp Nou, ensured that it is an experience that would not change: "I Enjoyed a lot of of both seasons in the Barça and decided to go me after a big campaign, winning the doublet in Spain, playing a fantastic football and, personally, developing me like player".

The Barcelona looks for left side

After the course of Lucas Digne to the Everton, in the FC Barcelona there was an internal debate to decide if fichaba to a player in his position or if it trusted only in Jordi Alba and Juan Miranda, footballer of the filial with a lot of projection of future. Finally the staff remained as it was and did not bequeath reinforcements.

Of face to 2019, the thing could change. By the moment, Ernesto Valverde only has bet by Miranda in the party of Glass of the King in front of the Cultural Leonese, maybe because still it sees him too green to give him continuity. Already it was in winter or in summer, the arrival of a left side contemplates seriously.
