Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona has a 'puzzle' in the left side. To day of today, Jordi Alba is the only active of the first staff in said demarcation (Alejandro Balde has index card of the filial), by what the Catalan entity follows working in the signing of Marcos Alonso to reinforce the sinister band. However, this situation could be avoided along the last decade, where the club explained in his subsidiary with a series of left-handed sides that, already was by fault of opportunities or for playing in positions more advanced in the field that afterwards delayed, in the actuality are keys in other teams and protagonists of the market.

Examples of this are the cases of Sergio Gómez and Marc Cucurella. The first of them went out of the filial of the club in 2018 with destination to Dortmund, when it managed like mediapunta and did not have minutes in the Barça B. It was 3 seasons in Germany, with cession in the half to the Huesca, before signing by the Anderletch in the 2021. In Belgium, Vincent Kompany bet by him in the left side and the played could not have him gone out better. After a successful course defending the left-handed band and with hardly 21 years of age, the Manchester City credited 11 million euros to 'Them Mauves' to carry it to the Etihad Stadium.

Of the same way, the one of Marc Cucurella was one of the heaviest movements of the market. The now player of Chelsea went out of the City Condal no by own will, but because the club never wanted to bet by him. In the summer of 2018, Ernesto Valverde put by in front to Juan Miranda like replacement of Jordi Alba. A year afterwards, after a big season in the Eibar, Marc was sold by 2 'kilos' to the 'armeros' for afterwards be repurchased by 4 millions and be yielded to the Getafe. The group 'azulón' paid 10 millions by him in the 2020, sold it to the Brighton by 18 in the 2021 and in this window happened to the 'blues' by 65+8 millions. An error of bulto by part of the Catalans.

Another of the most important mistakes of the Catalans is starred by Álex Grimaldo. In his best moment in the Barça B, in where it was captain and managed so much of inner as of left side in a big level, the Valencian decided to put course to the Benfica in return of 1,5 million euros in the summer of 2015. In Lisbon, the defender consolidated in the left-handed band, turning into a very contributed footballer by the big clubs, included the same FC Barcelona.

'Cracks' Of the Betis

On the other hand, the barcelonistas commissioned to reinforce to a rival of LaLiga with two good pieces of the left band. The first of them, Álex Moreno, belonged to the Juvenile To in the season 2011-2012, where was mediapunta and extreme. With the run of the time and after dressing the T-shirts of several clubs, the footballer of 29 years turned into a grandísimo lateral left-handed during his stage in the Ray Vallecano. Now, it is one of the most important players of the Betis and even was near to put course to the Premier, where the West Ham and the Nottingham Forest interested in him.

Likewise, the previously mentioned Juan Miranda could not consolidate in the first staff after having left without place to Marc Cucurella. After a toneless party in front of the Raise by the Glass of Rey, Valverde lost all the confidence in him and was yielded to the Schalke in the 2019. In the 2020, returned to the LaLiga to play in the Betis, first as yielded and afterwards remaining in property, in where it annotated the penalti winning of the final copera in front of Valencia.

A 'jewel' in Portugal

Finally, the Barça will be attentive to what suceda with José Marsà. The footballer of hardly 20 years of age is central by nature, although it can manage with comfort by the left lane. The defender was an usual in the alignments of García Pepper in the filial and abandoned the City Condal after finish agreement. Now, in the Sporting of Portugal aims to be one of the 'perlas' of the future, what has carried him to make his debut in the first team in the triumph lisboeta in front of the Santa Clara (4-0).
