The course Lucas Digne to the Everton the past summer did that Jordi Alba remained like only left side of the staff of the FC Barcelona. Since, Juan Miranda, left-handed side of the filial, could not strengthen in the first team and the experiments of Ernesto Valverde reconverting players like Malcom, Semedo or Sergi Roberto did not convince.

By the wear that has had Jordi Alba in the solitude of the left-handed lane, the technical office of the FC Barcelona studies seriously the option of fichar to a left side. The initial idea was to bring to a player to cost zero like Filipe Luis, of the Athletic of Madrid, or Alberto Moreno, of the Liverpool. However, now it would consider bet by an important investment of face to generate competitiveness in the position.

In LaLiga Santander there is an interesting option. It treats of Junior Firpo, carrilero left-handed of the Real Betis that has done an exceptional season in the Andalusian group. To his 22 years, keeps growing and posits like one of the big footballers of future. His clause of rescission is of 60 million euros, an expensive price but that, according to Sport, could recess to 30 by means of negotiation.

We are speaking of a very offensive side, with an imponente physical -measures 184 centimetres and possesses a big stride- and a technician debugged so much for the dribbling as to put centres and associate with his mates. Besides, it is very incisive and is used to to look for the desmarque of split incorporating from the second line.

In fact, it is necessary to remember that, the dominican side of the Real Betis gave a chair of offensive football in the party of LaLiga Santander contested against the Barça in the Camp Nou, in the first turn. Junior Firpo marked a golazo after carrying by the way of the bitterness to the defence culé and went a puñal by the left band, something that would have called the attention of the technicians.

Real Madrid and Manchester City go to by Junior Firpo

The signing of Junior Firpo would not be easy for the FC Barcelona, since Real Madrid and Manchester City would have interested in his situation, according to the national and international press. The dominican side has done a big season and would be a big reinforcement for the staff of Ernesto Valverde of face to the next season.
