Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona works to time trial to try complete the signings of César Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso, which have 'frozen' in the last days. There is not absolute agreement with Chelsea by any of the two and in the breast of the Barcelona club begin to exasperate because they wanted to 'tie them' before they debut in the Premier League, next Saturday 6 August (against the Everton of Frank Lampard).

Of agreement to a recent information of the newspaper 'SPORT', the Barcelona leaders are in direct and permanent contact with his homologous in the group of London and are expecting of the green light final, although they depend on that the ones of Thomas Tuchel confirm new incorporations to reinforce his defence and, for the moment, have not achieved big advances.

Both find in some days of rest after completing the pre-season with Chelsea, but foresees that in the beginning of the week the two presionen to the directors of Chelsea (and Tuchel) for desatascar the subject of his respective exits. Xavi has asked them, as diverse report, that have patience and trust that they will finish arriving to the City Condal, but depends also of the will of the English group.

The Barça, by his part, is in a worrisome situation with the exits of players. To day of today there is 'overbooking' in the staff of face to the beginning of LaLigto in the second week of August and, if it does not complete the sale/cession of the 'descartes' of Xavi Hernández, the Barcelona will put in a wrap to the hour to inscribe to new footballers: because there are not squares in the changing room and neither margin salarial. To incorporate Azpilicueta and Alonso before they produce gone out, will be a catastrophe complicated to handle.

To this it is necessary to add him that Thomas Tuchel has put a lot of resistance of on sale face of the right side navarro. In fact, the last time that spoke on his case left clear that would prefer that it remained in the Stamford Bridge: "I am not very safe of if I want to give to Azpi what he wants to. This also goes on what want to we, what wants the team", said Tuchel, adding that "only I have to do the comparison between what a lot of that has cost us bring to Koulibaly, that is also international and more or less of the same age".

Of the central that finish to land to the English group stood out that "it was a very important player for the Naples, but we have to an international Spanish that is captain here", before 'load' against the Barça: " I see Them to the same level, but the Barcelona no, so I am not sure if I want to give him what want to, because it is a big player. My work is not only give him to him what want to, but look for what is better for Chelsea", sentenced.

Alonso, more complicated

For the Barça is a priority achieve a spare for Jordi Alba, the one who is the only left side natural of the staff. Xavi already warned in press conference that was compulsory to have to two players by position (by the complicated calendar that avecina) and Marcos Alonso is the big elected by the trainer and the sportive direction. Nevertheless, it has informed that it is complicated that the two footballers of Chelsea land in the Spotify Camp Nou.

It does some days, the journalist Gerard Romero had explained in 'Jijantes' that saw 'impossible' that the Barça could complete the signings so much of Azpilicueta as of Alonso and that thus they see other alternatives for the left-handed side, with Reguilón and Caio Henrique, of the ACE Monaco, like the first in the list of possible options for the Barcelona.
