Junior Firpo has not convinced FC Barcelona and it seems that the Catalans will try to get rid of him this summer. The idea would be to include him in the operation for Lautaro Martínez or to get 20 million if he sold to another club
Junior Firpo arrived to the FC Barcelona this past summer to tighten to Jordi Alba, that carried several years without an acting of guarantees. In the club trusted his progression to half term and expected that little by little it went showing the version arrolladora that teach in the Betis in several occasions. It cost 18 million euros more other 12 by aims and had to be the carrilero left-handed of the future, but more than half campaign afterwards everything indicates that this never sucederá.
As it signals the newspaper 'Sport', from the Barça have left to trust the Hispanic-dominican and have put him in the list of transferibles. In the group barcelonista think that the ex bético does not go to triumph of Barcelona and prefer to look for a traspaso already to recover the investment that made in summer. The Catalans, nevertheless, no malvenderán to the player and only will listen offers that split from the 20 million euros.
The youth of the side (23 years) and the version that showed in the Betis do him be an interesting player in the market. It seems that in Italy has to several clubs following him the track, with Naples, Rome and Torino in the 'pole position'. The Barça, this yes, will prioritise to the Inter of Milan, that also has showed interest in the footballer. The intention of the culés would be to include to the of the Dominican Republic in the operation of Lautaro Martínez, that is the big aim of the Barcelona.
In these months like barcelonista, Junior has had spare occasions as to show his level, but has not taken advantage of them. The ex canterano verdiblanco has managed without penalty neither glory by the Camp Nou and has been definitely one of the most disappointing footballers of the campaign. It expected much more of him, especially in attack, since in theory was his strong point. The true is that in defence has done waters and in the offensive plot has not contributed practically at all.
Any young player deserves have a year of adaptation when it arrives to a club of the dimension of the Barça, although in the case of Junior expected that it contributed more from the first minute for coming of a team of LaLiga like the Betis. The carrilero has not given the size this season and in the club do not pretend to give him a second opportunity. With the economic crisis that is generating the coronavirus, the blaugrana need to sell to be able to fulfil with his planning and are had to remain without acting of Jordi Alba.
The course of Junior, conditioned to the market
The course of Junior, clear is, will depend of the money that offer the teams that interest by him. The crisis also has arrived to the rest of groups of Europe, by what the prices in this market seems that they will be inferior to the ones of previous years. This wants to say that perhaps the Barça do not receive the offer that wants by the left-handed side. In this case, Firpo could finish remaining and having this second opportunity that now want to deny him.
