Juan Miranda has made a great European with the U19, but FC Barcelona prefers to sign another left back side rather than give it a chance
It does just a year, Juan Miranda was considered by the FC Barcelona like one of the big hopes of face to reinforce the left side. The Andalusian youngster, that fulfilled the 19 years the past month of January, explained, in principle, to combine the filial with the first team the past season, but finally did not have all the leadership that had wished.
His performance did not convince to Ernesto Valverde. Miranda had opportunities in some parties of Glass of Rey and, after one of them in front of the Raise in which it committed some defensive error, the Txingurri left to show him confidence and to demand him for the first team. Not even it summoned him at the end, when the team no longer played LaLiga in the last three days.
Recently, in press conference, the technician extremeño recognised publicly that the FC Barcelona looks for a left side. "It is truth that in the position of left side had some problem and is possible that can incorporate somebody. But we are opened to the market until the last day and already will see what occurs", ensured, forgetting completely of Miranda.
But maybe what needs the Andalusian is a second opportunity. It has showed it in the European Sub 19 in which the Spanish selection has proclaimed champion in front of Portugal. Miranda has turned into a key piece in the diagrams of the 'Rojita' and, in fact, was protagonist of the final after giving the assistance of the second goal of Ferran Torres in a played very similar to the ones of Jordi Alba.
It is necessary to take into account that only it has 19 years and still can turn into a big footballer, totally aprovechable for the first team culé. But, by the moment, seems that in the technical body follow him seeing green and that in Can Barça prefer to spend a dineral in a footballer with more experience before that give him confidence.
Junior Firpo, the favourite
The FC Barcelona is tracking the market of traspasos and, to day of today, seems that Junior Firpo is the best situated to finish dressing of Barcelona to be the alternative to Jordi Alba. Players like David Praises or Philipp Max are alternative that contemplate , but still will be necessary to expect for averiguar which footballer will reinforce the position.
