Junior Firpo arrived to the FC Barcelona in the summer of 2019 by 18 million euros like one of the carrileros more promising of LaLiga. Unfortunately, at the end it has finished turning into one of the big disappointments of the Barcelona group​​. The left side arrived to be the spare of Jordi Alba and put him something of pressure to the Catalan after standing out in the Real Betis, but goes to finish going by the rear door in the next days.

The Leeds United is very near to carry to the of Saint Sunday in return of 15 millions. The group barcelonista is negotiating in these moments the last fringes of an operation that could close this week or to beginnings of the next. The economic agreement with the ones of Marcelo Bielsa is total and the carrilero also has given his seen well, by what only is question of time that was official.

Of this form, the Barcelona will remove of on one of the a lot of problems that is having this summer in the 'operation gone out'. It fits to stand out that the Betis will carry 20% of the sale of the defence by the agreement to the that arrived with the blaugrana in 2019. Seemingly, Junior will sign until 2025 with the English group, that will ensure him a good wage. Of this form, the side will try to reactivate his career after two bad years in the Camp Nou.

The performance of the Hispanic-dominican in the Barça has been very underneath of the level that expected of him when him fichó. The ex canterano verdiblanco has showed to have lacks in the positional game, a defensive fragility quite evident and some limitations in the attack in static. By all this, Joan Laporta​ has finish him signalling like one of the footballers with which do box.

Koeman Did not have Junior

Besides, the Barcelona president has the seen well of Ronald Koeman, that almost did not have he this past course. The Dutch gave him only 18 parties between all the competitions, showing that it does not trust he. In these 18 opportunities, generally did not give a high level, further of exceptions as for example his crash against the Eibar, where gave an assistance. By this reason and because it gives the feeling that it does not go to go to more, the club has decided traspasarle.
