Joan Laporta​ has aimed since it arrived to the FC Barcelona the signing of a central of level. 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. By this reason, the president has wanted to fichar a defender that ilusione and do to grow to the team in this position. The problem is that the fault of economic resources does very difficult the arrival of somebody like this.

However, the increasing interest of the Everton in Clément Lenglet and the possibility that Samuel Umtiti finish going does that there is some option more than fichar another central. If the French finish going, the Barcelona group would remain only with Ronald Araújo, Eric García, Óscar Mingueza and Gerard Hammered. Although four head offices seem more than sufficient, it is necessary to take into account that three of them do not surpass the 22 years, with all what this supposes.

By this reason, as they have aimed from 'SportItalia', the Barcelona is following very closely the situation of Cristian Romero, titularísimo in the Atalanta and in the Argentinian selection. With the albiceleste has been headline in the three parties of the Glass America in which it has been available, including the final. In the rest, physical problems prevented him be in the field, but Lionel Scaloni trusts blindly in him.

With 23 years, the Argentinian was indisputable the past season in the Atalanta with Gasperini, where has turned into one of the best defenders of the Calcium and in the leader of the 'nerazzurri'. There it has showed to be a defence aguerrido, strong, fast to the crossing, expeditivo, powerful by up and with good exit of balloon. Qualities that the Barça would value very positively, the same that other big clubs that have asked after he.

The Juve 'gave' to Cristian to the Atalanta

The picture of Bérgamo has him fichado this summer by 16 million euros, exerting the option of purchase that negotiated with the Juventus of Turín the past campaign. The juventinos decided to yield him because they did not find him place in the staff and now probably are throwing of the pelos. His value of market rises already to the 35 'kilos' and no descarta that in case to go out of the Atalanta do it by more than 40.

The Tottenham, the same that the Barça, also has put his eyes in him and could do an offer in the weeks to come. It comments that the 'spurs' would have offered to Davinson Sánchez in return of the cordobés, although the ones of Gasperini do not agree with this exchange. It will be necessary to see if the Barcelona can aspire to his signing or if the culés finish losing the opportunity.
