The FC Barcelona has the priority to close to Matthijs of Ligt, a signing considered strategic of face to the future. The problem is that the Dutch seems to have a lot of doubts, by what the Barcelona handle a plan B in case it does not arrive
Already it does a lot of months that the FC Barcelona goes behind Matthijs of Ligt, defence of the Ajax that has enamoured to average Europe after having a very stood out paper in the Dutch team, champion of the 'doublet' in his country and semifinalist of the Champions League remaining out of the final of Wanda Metropolitan in the last sigh.
Around the middle of April, everything seemed fact, but with the step of the weeks, the offers of other big teams have cooled the operation. "Perhaps still it is not the moment to go to the Barça, is something that have to think and decide during my holidays, at all more", affirmed Of Ligt this same week in an interview to Sportive World.
To day of today, several international means coincide in that Paris Saint-Germain is the team that is more near to be able to concretise the signing of the defence of the Ajax. The forecast of the FC Barcelona was to spend 75 million euros in his traspaso, a figure that the culés would save in case that the central youngster 'ajacied' refuse the Barcelona proposal.
According to the informations published by the daily Ace, the FC Barcelona has a plan B in case Of Ligt decides not dressing of Barcelona. A very distinct strategy, since the money saved after the refusal of the Dutch would not be invested in a player of his place. These 75 millions would spend to reinforce positions.
Rodrigo and Junior Firpo, the favourites
The FC Barcelona would employ the 75 million euros saved in the (no) signing of Matthijs of Ligt a left side and a leading centre. It treats of two positions that the culés will reinforce equally whatever happens with the Dutch but, in case that this say "no", the players that will arrive for said positions will be of upper level.
In the left side would do without signings 'low cost' of footballers that finish agreement -as Filipe Luis- to centre in a player with more route, being Junior Firpo (Real Betis) the favourite. For the forward, Rodrigo Moreno (Valencia) would be one of the players that more would fit inside the profile wished by the technical office.
