FC Barcelona is studying the central market in Europe and would have noticed Merih Demiral, from Juventus in Turin. The Turk is cheap, has experience and could be an interesting option for the Catalans
Joan Laporta is not satisfied with good part of the current staff of the FC Barcelona and this summer will try to begin a revolution that will be still in 2022. The president has put up for sale to all the secondary actors of the Barça, beginning for example by Samuel Umtiti and finishing by Junior Firpo. Besides, to Philippe Coutinho, Miralem Pjanic or Martin Braithwaite also will look for them gone out to do all the possible box and reduce the mass salarial that do gap for the signings.
One of the zones of the field where the Barça needs to improve more is in defence, that has gone back to be his weak point a campaign more. Of the central of the team, only Ronald Araújo has given a level high practically all the course, showing that in him there is defender for years. Óscar Mingueza also has showed to be a good complement, but the Catalan seems to be far of the level that has to him demand to a defence titularísimo in the Barcelona.
Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet have not been at all well and have left a lot of doubts. The French, in fact, has completed his worst season since it plays in Spain, whereas the Barcelonan has not been able to recover his best version after his injury and could not going back to do it. On the other hand, Umtiti almost has not played and not even explains for the course that comes. Thus, Laporta has not doubted in doing with Eric García, that could be an important incorporation so much to short as on a long-term basis.
But the arrival of the ex of the Manchester City will not solve all the problems of the Barcelona in defence, since the one of Martorell still is young and is green in a lot of facets of the game. Thus, as it has commented , the president wants to fichar to another more experienced defender and with some level in Europe. The favourites are Matthijs of Ligt and Jules Koundé, but his price is too high, by what the maximum mandator barcelonista could have fixed in somebody with a profile quite lower.
Demiral, possible aim of the Barcelona
It treats of Merih Demiral, still player of the Juventus of Turín, that according to the newspaper 'ACE' would be one of the big favourites of the Barça to reinforce the centre of his saga. The technical office and Ronald Koeman have good reports of the Turkish and could launch to by him if the bianconeros accept to negotiate at good cost. The relations between the juventinos and the blaugrana are very good, by what in case of interest would not have to have problem to initiate the negotiations.
The international by Turkey has been this season happened the fourth head office of the Juve after Ligt, Chiellini and Bonucci. The player is not happy with this role and would like him leave to have more opportunities elsewhere. In Barcelona also would have a lot of competition, since right now there are six defenders in staff, but the state of form of three is very low and the others three are very young and lack experience to the highest level. To his 23 years, could give a jump in his career in the Camp Nou.
