Junior Firpo goes way to turn into one of the big disappointments of the FC Barcelona. The left side arrived the summer happened to be the spare of Jordi Alba and put him something of pressure to the Catalan. After standing out in the Real Betis and do a name in LaLiga, the youngster carrilero left-handed landed in the Camp Nou to follow improving and be important in the future to half and long term of the club.

Unfortunately for all, in general lines, the performance of the Hispanic-dominican has been very underneath of the level that expected of him when it arrived. The ex canterano verdiblanco has showed to have some enormous lacks in the positional game, a defensive fragility too evident and one almost invalid offensive contribution. Of the three trainers that has had in the Barça, only Quique Setién tried to take him out something of juice, but neither achieved it.


This course, Ronald Koeman has gone back to give him a quite residual paper and only has contested 11 parties and 471 minutes between all the competitions. The Dutch does not seem to trust too much in him and by this reason would have given green light to his course in this market of winter. The technician would have communicated him to the club his decision and these last weeks the Barça has listened the proposals that have arrived to the Camp Nou by him.

Everything seemed to indicate that Junior went to leave in this month of January yielded or even traspasado, in case that it had arrived some interesting proposal by him. Nevertheless, as it aims 'Sportive World', the Barcelona has changed of opinion recently and there would be descartado definitively his exit. The barcelonistas do not want to do a bad business with him for precipitating and prefer to expect to summer to value his situation.

The Milan had done an offer by him asking his cession and including an option of optional purchase of 15 million euros. The blaugrana would have refused it, since they consider that it is little money taking into account that in 2019 paid 18 'kilos' and 12 in variables by him. For this reason, unless it arrive an ofertón that was irrechazable, will not allow that the left-handed side go in these moments.

The Barça does not want to lose more effective in defence

Besides, in the Barça do not want to remain without effective backwards, although Firpo is prescindible for Koeman. With the confirmation that Eric García will not arrive until summer, with Gerard Hammered lesionado and Sergiño Dest 'touched' from does weeks, the club thinks that is not recommended to lose another defence. It will be necessary to see if the trainer of Zaandam finishes taking advantage of more to the Hispanic-dominican and this decision finish being hit.
