The left defender of Borussia Dortmund, Raphaël Guerreiro, is winning options as an alternative to reinforce the position of Jordi Alba. The first option keeps being Junior Firpo
The FC Barcelona already has done almost all the duties in the chapter of incorporations, but still needs any that another signing more to finish to outline the staff and give him the balance that deserves. Only like this it will be able to struggle by all the titles with the maximum competitiveness and optimism, with the will to go back to make history and amend the errors committed in the last stretch of this past course.
Antoine Griezmann, Frenkie of Jong and Net Walled have landed to cover some of the needs of the staff in the forward, the goal and the centre of the field. Still it is missing to finish to improve the level in the sides, in particular in the left. Jordi Alba had to bear all the past campaign without a relief in the left lane, and the Barça is decided to solve the problem.
Junior Firpo (Real Betis) is the one who more sounds like signing of present and future, although the FC Barcelona handles alternatives of weight. The main is the one of Raphaël Guerreiro, carrilero of the Borussia Dortmund that is used to to be headline with the selection of Portugal, and that has of a situation more than favourable to abandon at good cost the Signal Iduna Park.
The defender luso finishes agreement with the 'borussers' in June of 2020, and to his 25 years is in the perfect age for recalar in the FC Barcelona and turn into the left side of the future. To the equal that Junior Firpo with the Betis, the Borussia Dortmund has priced him in a price of 25 million euros. Still it has not renewed, and the fact to finish agreement next year can do that it go out of the club by less money.
The interest by this international player with Portugal would open another road of conflict, this yes, with a Paris Saint-Germain that it also is interested in his incorporation. It would be the enésima time that both clubs see immersed in a dispute by a footballer in the market of signings, and surely no the last. The question is that Guerreiro likes to the sportive area of the Barça, and also is an option that would convince to Valverde.
Junior Firpo keeps on being the priority
As it has come informing from 'FCBN', however, Junior Firpo continues being the main aim of the FC Barcelona to reinforce the left side. Only if the Barça does not achieve to arrive to an agreement with the Betis and the player of dominican origin, will bet then by Guerreiro. And if the Portuguese neither arrived, another option on of the table is the one of Ricardo Rodríguez (AC Milan). The Barça, with a lot of alternatives on of the table.
