Barça will reform its defense at the end of the season, and it is studying several options. The catalans are looking at a possible opportunity to sign Aymeric Laporte
The FC Barcelona has several pending accounts in the summer of 2020, in which it will bet by a deep reform of his staff. The Catalans pretend to correct several recent errors, revitalizar the team and prepare it for a decisive relief generacional, in which it will have to say goodbye to some historical footballers and seat the bases of an ambitious project of future. This time, in the City Condal can not fail.
One of the lines to retouch is the defence, that a year more, is in search of head offices. In spite of having lost the absolute titularity with Quique Setién, Clément Lenglet is a tarpaulin of the technical office, that does not pose dispense of the of Beauvais. Instead, it does time that looks for an heir for Gerard Hammered, and although it has recovered relatively his fitness, Samuel Umtiti does not convince and could be traspasado.
As 'Sportive World', the Barcelona are very pending of the Manchester City, and in concrete expect an opportunity by Aymeric Laporte. In the Etihad Stadium await to the resolution of the TAS to rid of a sanction of the UEFA, that could leave them two seasons without Champions -or one if at least they attain a discount-. Although the English will try to avoid an escape of stars, the crisis of the coronavirus, that will have a painful impact in the income of all the clubs, could force them to give off of some of his cracks.
Although the injuries have braked him in what it goes of campaign, the Frenchman is an option that likes a lot to the culés. In his stage in the Athletic Club already observed him closely, but finally were the 'sky blues' those that attained to tie him in January of 2018. The one of Agen was a wish express of Pep Guardiola, that has showed that by qualities, potential and age -near of the 26 years-, the defender would have place in the Camp Nou.
The problem for the Barça is that the French would not be a cheap bet. The prices could go down because of the budgets readjusted, but this also would limit the capacity to do offers convincentes. The 'citizen' credited 65 million euros to do with his services and recently renewed him until 2025, by what his traspaso would not be a gift. This yes, would be an operation of the most interesting.
The Barça studies a relief 'low cost' for Umtiti
With other urgent priorities, the Barça also studies a relief 'low cost' for Umtiti, with algun young defender and more affordable that Laporte. Pau Torres is one of which has sounded to replace to the of Yaundé, and would fit so much in the sportive requirements as in the economic, since it would plant to a star with a high wage and would receive to a perla with margin of improvement and a quite inferior wage.
