Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona is reinforcing for the next season and has achieved a signing that has generated a lot of illusion to the barcelonismo. Eric García, a central with DNA culé, is the big bet of the club to direct the central axis of the defence to short and long term. It is a player that already has impressed to Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique and que, of safe, will have a big impact in the Barça from the course 2021-22.

However, there is an enormous problem that the Barcelona entity has to resolve immediately and that it will be, how no, determinant for the future of the team, especially with the mass salarial and the opportunities of game for the footballers. Until the moment, the Barça has fichado to three players (Agüero, Eric and Emerson), but has not given exit to any, a factor that is extremely important for the club and one of the big 'emergencies' that Joan Laporta has to resolve.

With the incorporation of Eric García, the Barça already adds six head offices: Gerard Hammered, Clément Lenglet, Ronald Araújo, Samuel Umtiti and Óscar Mingueza, in addition to the ex of the Manchester City. To his time, there is a big disequilibrium very worrisome in the positions, with four right-handed head offices and two left-handed, the two French that, casulamente, are the eye of the hurricane and that, in theory, are the players that are in the ramp of exit of the Camp Nou, although both resist .

Clément Lenglet was the last that declared, to 'Eurosport', that did not have intentions to abandon the Barça. "I do not see me going out; I will be still in the Barcelona the next season", explained the Frenchman. Umtiti, by his part, neither is had to leave the club, trusting that próximamente will have his opportunity of gold and will be useful, again, for the Barcelona. The problem is that, although they are those that would have to go out, the Barça can not remain without left-handed head office.

This leaves to Hammered, Araújo and Mingueza like the 'signalled' in this situation because, definitively, Eric is not an option to go out. It is necessary to consider, besides, that the central youngster Catalan finish to renew his agreement does few weeks and that the charrúa, by his jueventud and talent, is an option that the Barça will not leave to lose, under any circumstance.

In this case, by age, Hammered remains in the ramp, but his exit is impossible by all what represents in the club, his experience and the role that has in the field and changing room, because it is synonymous of liderazo, in addition to that Ronald Koeman values a lot his work. Has agreement (until withdrawing ) and has not posed abandon the ship. An enormous complication for the culés.

Work for Koeman and Alemany

With this panorama, the situation is very complicated. Up to now, Koeman has bet by a defence of three and, contanto with six head offices, would have opportunity for rotar what want to, especially with Hammered, Araújo, Mingueza and Eric. However, the reality is that the Barça needs (urgently) free his changing room and the mass salarial.

Thus, it will be necessary to see how manage Mateu Alemany and Koeman the staff of face to the next season, but if there is something true is that they will have to 'undo' of at least two defenders in this summer. The problem, in any case, is to decide who will be the big sacrificed.
