This season, Quique Setién only has of three central defences in the staff of the FC Barcelona:Gerard Hammered, that already has 33 years and whose final of career approaches increasingly; Samuel Umtiti, that follows without reaching the physical level that had before his constant problems of knee; and Clément Lenglet, considered untransferable but without having achieved be indisputable for the Cantabrian.

Thus, the idea of the technical office is to reinforce the central axis of the defence with a young footballer but of level contrasted. According to the informations of Mediaset Italy, Alessio Romagnoli, head office of the AC Milan, would have gone back to be an option consolidated for the Barcelona sportive direction, that would see in him an opportunity of market because of his contractual situation.

The agreement of the central Italian finalises in 2022 and the Milan knows that, if it does not achieve to renew him before summer of 2021, could see forced to sell him by a price reduced. It is true that his agent Mino Raiola already would be negotiating a hypothetical operation, but while this have not given , Romagnoli will be a possibility very to take into account.

The media quoted previously ensures that the FC Barcelona would offer him to the central 'rossoneri' an index card of four million euros by season -half million more than the 3,5 that earns right now- and that to convince to the team lombardo, the picture culé would put on the possible table pieces of change like Jean-Clair Todibo, yielded to the Schalke 04, or Emerson Royal, at present yielded to the Betis.

His price of market rondaría the 50 million euros, a quantity that to day of today could not disburse no longer only by the economic crisis generated by the coronavirus, but also thinking in an aim prioritario like the one of as Lautaro Martínez. With Todibo or Emerson, the price of Romagnoli could descend of important form to become affordable.

Araújo, possible option

The Barça wants to reinforce the central axis of his defence, already was with Romagnoli, with Of Ligt or with any head office of level that can put to shot. If finally the technical office does not find a viable option, seems a fact that will be Ronald Araújo the one who rise to the first team of definite form. The Uruguayan defence is a diamond in the rough and convinces to the technicians, by what is the Plan 'B' if they do not finish arriving reinforcements for said position.
