'ACE' has desvelado that the FC Barcelona wants to 'fish' in the Benfica and has in looks it to one of his left-handed sides to reinforce the staff culé
The FC Barcelona does not have a lot of options to reinforce the left-handed side, that has as to Jordi Alba like only leading and without 'competition' in his position in front of the performance of Junior Firpo the past season, that left a lot that wish in the last season. Of there that the technical office keep alert to all the possibilities that there is in the market to have more variable in the left side.
Although the main option for the Barça is Gayà, player of Valencia, the blaugrana keep his radar lit and have put the look in Alex Grimaldo, Spanish footballer of the Benfica, that has 'exploded' with the Portuguese group and of the that the Barcelona technical office and Ronald Koeman have very good references. A priori, it is a movement in the market of signings that to the culés interests them.
Grimaldo, as it has desvelado 'ACE', ands a player that has put on the table in the last days between the variables that handles the group blaugrana to reinforce this sector of the field. The Spanish, that already has five years in the Benfica, is the sixth footballer of the League US with better value of market. It is priced in some 22 millions, as 'Transfermarket'.
The Portuguese group would not have a lot of problems in leaving him leave, by apróximadamente 20 million euros. His agreement wins in the summer of 2023 and, of agreement to the information of the before quoted source, Grimaldo would have many win to return to the football, where already played between 2008 and 2016, precisely in the inferior categories of the FC Barcelona.
'ACE' add, besides, that the player has received offers of the Athletic of Madrid and some teams of the Premier League, but his intention would be to return to the club where began his career futbolística and gave his first steps. So, for the moment, the Barça has the forward in the career by his signing, if it is that the club decides to present an offer to the Portuguese group.
A more economic side
If there is a point that has in favour Grimaldo andn the 'casting' of the Barça to achieve to his new left-handed side is his available price, very inferior to the of players like Gayà (35 or 40 million euros), the one who leads the list of wishes of the Barcelona group to be the spare of Junior Firpo, in the door of exit of the FC Barcelona. Besides, has a lot of experience in the football of first level (something that has turned into a requirement for the Barça) and, better still, already has the 'DNA culé' that so much looks for the managerial board of the club in the new players.
