Madrid signed Mendy, who curiously sounded for Barça, to compete with Marcelo. Barça has done the same with Junior Firpo, which curiously sounded for meringues, to compete with Alba. We will have to see which player will be better
The FC Barcelona had clear that fichar to a left side was necessary of face to this next season and finally the elected has been Junior Firpo. The ex of the Betis was announced this Saturday and arrives to compete with Jordi Alba by the place. The Catalan keeps on being indisputable, but the Hispanic-dominican arrives with hunger and with win to triumph in the Camp Nou.
The Real Madrid also did fault a left-handed side after the abysmal season of Marcelo. The Brazilian was of the worst of the white group in his sad campaign and Zinedine Zidane asked to Ferland Mendy to compete with him. The French shined in the Olympique of Lyon the past course and already is international absolute with France. It has played very little in pre-season, but sees him prepared to remove him the place to Marcelo that keeps on being a coladero in defence.
Curiously, both carrileros sounded so much for the Madrid as for the Barça. Before Zidane asked it for his team, Mendy was one of the options that the culés had for his side. Finally it was descartado by his high price and has finished in Santiago Bernabéu. Firpo, on the other hand, sounded to reinforce the left side merengue before doing it for the Barcelona. In fact, the canterano of the Betis showed predilection for playing in the Madrid.
The life has wanted that Mendy finish in the team madridista and Junior in the Barcelona. They are two footballers of similar ages (the Frenchman is 24 years old and the dominican goes to fulfil in August 23) and his styles of game also have a lot of similarities. The two stand out in the offensive section and have physical portentosos that do them can be decisive with spaces. In defence also have to improve both and is definitely in what more they have to grow.
The potential of both footballers is similar and only the time will say which of them arrives more far, but to day of today seems that the Barça has won him the game to the Madrid. Mendy Has cost him to the whites 48 million euros more other five in variables, whereas Junior has cost him to the culés 18 and 12 in variables. The blaugranas could pay until 30 'kilos', whereas the merengues would arrive to the 53 by two footballers that, a priori, seem to have a quite similar level.
Junior will learn of the best
While Mendy lidia with Marcelo, Junior will learn of Jordi Alba, the best left side of the world these last years. The international absolute Spanish will be headline and the ex bético will be in second plane. It will play a lot, since Valverde knows that the rotations are keys to be able to win titles, but will not have the pressure that yes can have the French in the Real Madrid. The time will say what carrilero arrives more far.
