The FC Barcelona has several pending operations in the market of signings, and one of the most important is the incorporation of a left side. After reinforcing the goal, the centre of the field and the forward, the Catalans look now to the defence, and in particular to the left-handed lane, where Jordi Alba is too alone and can not allow another season without having an acting of guarantees.

In the list of spares and competitors for the canterano appears David Praises, one of the most repeated names in the last weeks and parked for being an aim inasumible. The Bayern of Munich sticks to an agreement that expires in 2021, and is not had to accept less than 60 million euros by a key piece of his staff to which considers untransferable. In the Allianz Sand do deaf hearings to the rumours.

As 'Sportive World', in the City Condal valued a played that it could finish with the one of Vienna in the Camp Nou, but this involved the exit of Samuel Umtiti. Finally, the way has gone defining with the movements of the market, since in addition to the refusal of Matthijs of Ligt -the Dutch could have precipitated the sale of the Frenchman-, the Bavarians do not go to negotiate and the one of Yaundé neither wants to change of airs.

The main problem was the economic lace of the Austrian, that remained resolved with the goodbye to the French. Of this form, to gap so much to level of effective as to level of wage, because the carrilero has a wage of star that without this previous step could not assume. Equally, there was not excessive difficulties to sportive level, since the polivalencia of the side allows him play also of head office and even in the centre of the field.

It praises it left want to does some days, but like any of the involved was by the work to sign a barter the opportunity remained in at all. The Barça does not lose him of sight in case it puts to shot when his links with the Germans was about to to exhaust, but already tracks the market in search of new alternative. Junior Firpo also has complicated , and it will be necessary to see which sucede with Philipp Max and Álex Moreno.

Umtiti Proposes go back to be key in the Barça

It is clear that in the Barça there are not doubts on the quality of Umtiti, and the greater worry always went his dangerous injury of knee. The past course, the champion of the world could not hardly play by some annoyances that left him out of fight, and what did not like for nothing is how managed the crack the situation, denying in rotundo to go through the operating theatre. After taking care and prepare in depth along the summer the ex of the Olympique of Lyon has arrived to the pre-season in full form, and is had to recover the confidence and his status to title indisputable.
