Junior Firpo is one of the players who could leave Barça this summer. The side is not to the liking of Koeman or the club and has many ballots to leave. Olympique de Marseille could be his destiny, as Sampaoli holds him in high esteem
Although it arrived like one of the carrileros more promising of LaLiga, already can say that Junior Firpo is one of the big disappointments of the FC Barcelona. The left side arrived in the summer of 2019 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 Spain, the youngster carrilero left-handed landed in the Camp Nou to follow improving and be important in the future of the club.
Unfortunately, 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 lacks in the positional game, a defensive fragility quite evident and some limitations in the attack in static. This has done that any of the three trainers that has had in the Barça have explained too much with him.
Ronald Koeman, the last technician that has had Firpo, has given him this campaign 17 parties between all the competitions. Although it has not had too many opportunities, generally has not given a high level, further of some exceptions. By this reason and because it gives the feeling that it does not go to go to more, the club pretends traspasarle in this market veraniego. It is one of the players called to do box and seems that there is not gone back of leaf.
It carries months speaking that the Milan could be the club that stronger bet by him, but the milanistas could have forgotten. Theo Hernández is one of the best players of the team and one of the best sides of the Series To, by what is little likely that want to spend money in another carrilero of his style. Luckily, the milanistas are not the only that showed interest in Firpo, that could find accommodate in Tie it 1.
Sampaoli Wants to Junior for his Marseilles
According to account 'Sportive World', Jorge Sampaoli wants to to the ex bético in his Olympique of Marseilles the course that comes. The Argentinian knows well to the of Saint Sunday of his stage in the Seville and thinks that could be the reinforcement that is looking for for the left side. Besides, the sportive director of the French group is Pablo Longoria, that worked in Valencia and that also has good reports of Junior.
By all this, the '24' of the Barça could finish in Marseilles, although first it will be necessary to see which offer do the marselleses. The side cost 18 million euros more 12 in variables in 2019, but now his value has gone down and only 'okay' 10 'kilos' as 'Transfermarkt'. It can that the culés have to conform with this to remove of on to this footballer that arrived like star in ciernes and that surely finish going as 'crashed'.
