Junior Firpo will be the acting of Jordi Alba​ this season in the FC Barcelona. The carrilero Hispanic-dominican cost 18 million euros more other 12 in variables by aims. The international sub 21 already has debuted even with the team barcelonista in the pre-season against the Naples in the first crash of turns it by United States.

But the signing of Junior did not go at all simple and the culés had a lot of problems so that the Betis went down his pretences. The sevillanos asked 30 'kilos' in cash by his canterano and took a lot in yielding and accept 18 fixed and other 12 by aims. Precisely therefore, the blaugranas had to move and look for alternatives.

If the traspaso of the by then carrilero bético had not arrived to good port, the Barça had practically tied to the left-handed side of the Ray Vallecano, Álex Moreno. Sportive world aims that the leaders culés already had this signing agreed to. If Junior had not arrived, Moreno would have been Barcelona.

Finally, the Betis yielded and Álex Moreno remained in the Ray. The carrilero, this yes, could go out of Vallecas in this same market. The player is very requested and after the descent of the Ray are varied the teams that have interested in him.

The Hispanic-dominican is one of the carrileros left more promising of Europe in these moments. In Seville has played to big level and has confirmed like one of the big sides of the League Santander. His power, his physicist and his verticality do him be a puñal by band and this is what the Barça looks for for his side.

Jordi Alba is one of the best of the world and in the Camp Nou think that Junior can arrive to a similar level. The Hispanic-dominican will be able to learn each day of the of l'Hosapitalet of Llobregat to aspire to convert some day in the best. Has potential for this, but to arrive until this level will have to work and have a lot of patience.
