Junior Firpo was one of the footballers of the FC Barcelona to which the club put in the market of face to this winter. The culés listened offers by the left-handed side, but did not convince any and the Hispanic-dominican has finished remaining. On 1 February to the 23:59 hours closed this window of January and the ex of the Real Betis remained in the Camp Nou, where has increasingly complicated to play.

The carrilero has had several opportunities along this past month of January, but has them desaprovechado all. The defence has not given the level and even has received some bronca of his trainer owing to his performance. Against the Cornellà or the Ray Vallecano, for example, Ronald Koeman did not remain at all content with his performance and in Vallecas even substituted him.

But in case it was not little with this, Junior has received another blow recently in shape of exclusion in the announcement against the Granada. The side, by surprise, remained out of the list of the Dutch technician for the quarter-finals of Glass of Rey. The recovery of Sergiño Dest, that can play also in the left, and the turn of Sergi Roberto, do that the one of Saint Sunday no longer was important like spare of Jordi Alba.

In the tournament copero, fits to mention that only it allows have 9 players in the bench. In League, instead the maximum are 12, by what would have gone in with almost total security in case to having been this competition. Nevertheless, it is striking and says a lot of what thinks the míster of Zaandam on Firpo, the fact that it have preferred to have a third goalkeeper like Arnau Tenas, in place of with the side.

It was as it was, Koeman did not doubt in leaving him went for this crash, leaving him clear to the footballer that goes to explain between little and at all with him in what it subtracts of campaign. The Barça preferred that it remained because it did not arrive any offer of cession or traspaso interesting, but perhaps did not go the best contrives thinking in the summer. The idea of the Catalans could be sell to the ex bético, but will be complicated to take out cut by him if it does not have minutes this course.

The Milan follows after the steps of Junior

It will be necessary to see which sucede inside some months, since it comments that the footballer would have it practically done with the Milan. The 'rossonero' already interested by him to incorporate him this month of January like yielded, but finally will expect to summer. However, the idea of the milanistas is not spending a lot in the operation, by what is for seeing if his proposal fits with the wishes of the Barça, that follows trusting do a good box with him.
