The high controls of the FC Barcelona have carried well in this market of signings 2019, and in little more than half month since it opened the window estival, have done big part of the duties so much in the chapter of exits as in the one of entrances. They have left until 11 players that did not explain for Ernesto Valverde, and have landed three new players that, sure, will give a jump of quality to the staff.

But no everything is fact, and to the Barcelona still is missing him tie one of the reinforcements that would have to be prioritarios this summer: a left side. Jordi Alba was the only carrilero left-handed the past season, and could not be to the ideal level in the key parties that contested during the month of May, especially in semifinals of Champions League and the final of the Glass of Rey.

The FC Barcelona does not want to fall in the same error, and will reinforce the position of the of L'Hospitalet with a footballer that can relieve him in any party and with full guarantees of success. Guerreiro, Junior Firpo and Filipe Luis are some of the names that have sounded lately, but this Friday has gone in another with a lot of strength: David Praises, an old longing of the club.

In 2012, the one who then was sportive director of the Barça, Andoni Zubizarreta, listened the recommendation of Carles Rexach and sondeó the signing of the Austrian, although finally it decanted by Jordi Alba because his price was desorbitado. Years later, in 2016 and to give rest to Alba, the left side of the Bavarian group went back to put on of the table like option to value.

Robert Fernández, then in the place that previously occupied 'Zubi', him descartó again by his high price, and also not to put in risk the status of Jordi Alba that it is indisputable headline. Now, however, David Praises goes back to sound with power to reinforce to the Barça, and to his 27 years could be a reinforcement of campanillas when can play in several positions.

David Praises, polivalencia in pure state

In the Bayern Munich no only has acted of left side, but also of head office and of midfield player in punctual moments. This polivalencia of Praise would come him like ring to the finger to Ernesto Valverde, taking into account that it will have of so only four head offices this course and one of them, Jean-Clair Todibo, still is something inexperto to his 19 years.

From now, it will be necessary to see until where arrive the rumours in the next days and if it Praises is truly a real option for the Barça, or a speculation more. The price will dictate sentence on his possible signing. Although, the last time that the Barça asked after he, the Bayern already said him that or paid 60 millions or at all of at all. To day of today, with another left side like Lucas Hernández in the staff, perhaps the Bavarians think it to him...
