Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona does not pretend to detain in the market of signings, since from the offices of the Camp Nou are conscious that they need to reinforce diverse positions of the square of Xavi Hernández to go back to be candidates to everything during the next season. In spite of that the economy of the institution goes through a moment 'delicate', the 'crowbars' have given them a lot 'air' to the Catalans to the hour to face the market and after closing several names of 'weight', will go to by the 'pieces' that do him fault to the 'puzzle' of Xavi Hernández.

Some of the demarcations that expect to modify the Barcelona are both sides. The trainer of Terrassa does not have a pair of options of absolute guarantee in these zones of the field, since by the right-handed band the only active are some Sergiño Dest and Sergi Roberto that they do not finish to convince, whereas in the left-handed lane Jordi Alba does not have a natural spare. By this reason, from Can Barça are in research of two defenders of good level that can occupy the two positions.

Azpilicueta Would be the elected by the directive to reinforce the right band of the team. So much the club like Xavi Hernández have a high assessment of the defender, since they consider that it would be a player that would contribute experience, leadership and a lot of advantages regarding the game refers thanks to his polivalencia to improve the retaguardia culé. By his part, the Catalan square would have put to Alonso like favourite in the dispute by the left lane because of an economic reason, since his wage adapts to the present financial of the club.

However, both operations have been an authentic 'headache' for the culés. And it is that Chelsea has not put them the easy things, and during the dinner kept between the directors of both clubs, with Todd Boehly in command, the 'blues' asked 25 million euros! By the traspaso of the two defenders. Said figure is extremely far of the pretences of a Barça that does not think to pay such sum by two players that surpass the treintena and to which only subtracts them a year of agreement.

The Barça will tackle both traspasos separately

Likewise, from the dispatches of the Camp Nou have 'cooked' to 'slow fire' both operations, keeping conversations constantly with the footballers and avoiding that these listen offers of other teams. Of equal form, so much Azpilicueta like Marcos Alonso have kept firm to his wish of fichar by the Barça and have done a big effort mantiendo his word, by what the club does not think to leave them thrown and expect a discount by part of the londinenses to concretise the two incorporations.

On the other hand, the barcelonistas have very clear that will try to tackle both operations separately, since in the two handle distinct terms. In the meantime, Chelsea already works in the replacements of the defenders and are very near to hire to Marc Cucurella for the left side, what would open him the door to Alonso. Equally, the 'blues' tantean the situations of Fofana, Dumfries and Walker-Peters, by what this week will be key in the negotiations between clubs. It will remain for seeing that sucede in the next days, but the Barça trusts and aim to close each one of the signings in an inferior quantity to the 10 'kilos'.
