The FC Barcelona has had to go in again in the market of right sides to reinforce his saga after the refusal of César Azpilicueta to go out of Chelsea. The technical body does not trust the capacities of Sergiño Dest and has had to resort to Ronald Araújo to exert the position, leaving to with Sergi Roberto like only relief by the band.

It is thus that the sportive direction is after the steps of Juan Foyth, the polyvalent defender of the Villarreal. His characteristics award guarantees in multiple positions, since it can work so much by the band as of head office and pivote, being a very complete weapon for Unai Emery. However, the 'groguets' only would contemplate a traspaso if the culés pay the 42 million his clause and if the own footballer agrees in 'change of airs'.

With this on the table, another of the options that handles the managerial is Thomas Meunier. To his 30 years, is a solid option for the band, with a clear-cut path and with the necessary experience to face commitments complicated. It has been headline in the two first days of the Borussia Dortmund and his value of market would oscillate the 15 million euros, a high but negotiable price for the Barcelona.

Besides, although it does not act of head office, his 1.91 metres of height allow him create danger in the aerial game, what would complement even more to Jules Koundé and Araújo in the unemployed ball. Added to this, has worked like interior in the medullary in his steps by the Witches, PSG, Dortmund and overcoat in the selection of Belgium, since the format 3-4-3 allow him act like carrilero in attack.

Signing to the expectation

With 36 goals and 51 assistances in 393 official parties to level of clubs, is an alternative that handles the Barcelona in case that the 'operation Foyth' do not arrive to good port. The culés understand that they can not close the market without attending his sides, so his name will keep in the list of Mateu Alemany in case that it was necessary to go in in negotiations with the Dortmund in spite of his refusal to want to sell him by less than 15 'kilos'.
