Junior Firpo is one of the candidates that the FC Barcelona handles to reinforce the left side, but after the last approaches, his signing would have cooled . The institutional movements in the Real Betis and the competition would be the main obstacles
The FC Barcelona carries time working in the planning of the staff for the course 2019-20, and one of his priorities is a left side. The Catalans pretend to bet by a footballer that can exert of relief and complement for Jordi Alba, so that this keep his big level and to have a spare of guarantees when it touch him rest.
They are many the alternatives that have studied for the left-handed lane, and of profiles entirely distinct. There are youngsters that would ensure an option of future that would mix with the canteranos, there is other more consolidated and finally some opportunities of market, with veteran players that finish agreement and that they could contribute a lot because of an experience more than contrasted.
In the first group stands out Junior Firpo, one of the disclosures of the Real Betis to his 22 years. The Hispanic-dominican has settled along the campaign in Benito Villamarín, and his conditions fit to perfection with what look for in the City Condal. An offensive side, powerful and deep, with speed and sufficient potential as to shine also in defence.
However, according to the newspaper 'Sport', his signing would be moving away for the culés, by fault of several subjects that have taken place recently. In the first place, his speaker in the Andalusian group, Llorenç Serra Ferrer -with past in the Camp Nou-, has abandoned his place in the vicepresidencia sportive, what has left to the Barcelona without a leader with which keep good tuning.
But besides, the competition and the changes in the bench also have put up the price of his incorporation, since Rubi, the recently arrived trainer, wants that it was still in the changing room or sell him by a high quantity. In spite of having agreement until 2023 and a clause of rescission of 60 million euros, his traspaso could rondar the half, although the Napoli and some of his beaux in the Premier League would be had to bid very strong.
The Barça handles alternatives for his left side
Taking into account that in his plans already go in several reinforcements for the forward, the Barça will have to measure the investments veraniegas, and handles several alternatives in case they fail his initial plans. One of them would be a veteran like Filipe Luis, but in case that the Brazilian was not the elected there are several names that are in the extensive diary of contacts that handles the sportive direction.
