The FC Barcelona has not detained completely during the stop of the coronavirus, and is advancing work in his planning. While the cracks continue his physical preparation home, the sportive managers take decisions on the deep reform of the staff that will carry out in summer. When they confirm the definite dates of the end of season and the market, the Catalans wish to be smart.

According to the newspaper 'Sport', already would have concretised the design for the defence of the campaign 2020-21, that will have changes in the left-handed profile. In principle, the novelties aimed to the right because the continuity of Nélson Semedo is not safe and looks for heir for Gerard Hammered, but if the Portuguese remains and any of the youngsters is chosen to support to the canterano, the retouchings will centre in the another band.

The quoted half concrete that in the window estival pretends give exit to Samuel Umtiti and Junior Firpo, and would bet by a central that also can act like side. The one of Yaundé does not convince because after his constant injuries has not been able to approach to his best version, and the carrilero continues atenazado by the requirement of the Camp Nou and does not have presionado to Jordi Alba neither neither has achieved to consolidate like relief.

Always according to this version, the favourite is David Praises but is too expensive and others, as Pau Torres, offer interesting alternatives. For the time being, it seems difficult to go in in the bidding by the player of the Bayern of Munich, but the one of the Villarreal is to shot and has the approval of the office and the technical body. If there was not success in these operations, would bet by left side with a more modest cost.

The Barcelona do not close doors and also study possible cessions or incorporate to a free player of agreement, since this year there are candidates with a lot of name that will go out to the market. Layvin Kurzawa Or Jan Vertonghen are possibilities very appetizing, because aúnan quality and experience and could enrolarse in a project that would ensure them some leadership and would keep them in the fight by the titles.

The information finishes aiming that the youngsters for the moment do not appear in east adjust of the left flank of the retaguardia, and will have to expect his turn. To Marc Cucurella will give him free road to add to the Getafe or to accept the offer of any of his beaux, Juan Miranda could follow to loan in the Schalke or change of destination, and Sergio Akieme likes but will follow progressing in the filial.

The right band also could suffer changes

That the priorities centre in the left band does not mean that in the right do not go to produce changes. Like sucede with Clément Lenglet, Gerard Hammered is indisputable, and will value if Jean-Clair Todibo or Ronald Araújo can cover his backs. Besides, it will be key to confirm if Nélson Semedo continues his career in the City Condal, because Emerson will not move of the Real Betis until the course 2020-21.
