When Joan Laporta desveló that to the FC Barcelona were missing him three or four signings in this window of transfers, all the focuses fell in the left-handed side, the position that the blaugrana need to reinforce immediately and like this achieve a 'competition' for Jordi Alba, but also a spare for Junior Firpo, the one who will abandon the Camp Nou in brief.

Joan Laporta and Mateu Alemany have clear his aim and the name of José Luis Gayà, left-handed side of Valencia, jumped like the first option for Barça, in spite of his high price (40 million euros). The captain of the group 'ché' fulfils with the requirements that posed the culés: has experience in the football of first level, knows the Spanish championship and stands out , so much in defensive works as when it adds to the attack.

However, from the beginning of the rumours, has been an extremely complicated operation for the Barcelona because, in principle, the new trainer of the Valencians, José Bordalás, had confirmed that the player went in between his plans and considered him key for his stage in Mestalla. There was one 'hope' by the need of Valencia of sanear his accounts, but even with this reality the traspaso of Gayà to the Barça is impossible.

The same player has recognised in recent statements in the microphones of 'À Punt' that is happy in Valencia and does not have intentions to move . Instead, it expects to fulfil his agreement and extend it. "I always have said it, my illusion is to be still in Valencia, remain me two years of agreement and have a lot of illusion for following much more time", recognised.

The statements of the Valencian arrived after it confirmed that the club was trying to renew his agreement further of the season 2022-2023, when it wins the agreement. Gayà Has expressed that trusts that the club goes to achieve step forward, of the hand of Bordalás, that seems "him an entreandor with a lot of experience, a leader inside the changing room and think that can come us well. Ojalá Go out the things like him wants to and Valencia go back to be the quetodos expect".

Vase of cold water for the Barça

Like this then , to the FC Barcelona has him 'fallen' one of his possible incorporations crash for the market of signings of the summer. However, in the club is a priority achieve a new left-handed side and from the sportive direction are in the research of a 'candidate' ideal that, as we mention before, serve of competition for a position of which Jordi Alba has adueñado, especially by the performance (that it has left a lot that wish) of Junior Firpo.

In the last weeks, has explained that the Barça has in looks it to Robin Gosens, side of the Atalanta that has been one of the disclosures of Germany in the Eurocopa of this summer, in addition to Nicolás Tagliafico, player of the Ajax that, as you report them, would have asked to abandon the team of Ámsterdam this summer.
