It is important that a managerial handle alternative in case the first options finish failing. And it is that in a market of signings so volatile, anybody knows really what can happen. The Barcelona club carries weeks working in the incorporation of Verratti,but the pre-season is just around the corner and do not finish to close agreements. 

And it will not be because the Italian was not tightening the rope or because the Barça do not want to go to the PSG with an offer in firm -that will arrive in brief-, but because the economic quantities that handle are desorbitadas and the club culé, to be able to face them, has to execute first some sale that leave money in the arks.

It is thus that already have activated the plans 'B'. Recently the "Daily ACE" gave an information in which it affirmed that Robert Fernández would have put his eyes in Saúl, player of the Athletic of Madrid that exploded does two seasons of the hand of Simeone. A left-handed player and with a brilliant projection. The perfect couple for Rakitic, maybe. 

And this Monday the "Newspaper Sport" goes further, ensuring that the Barcelona club would have gathered until a total of thrice with the surroundings of the player. The rojiblanco is represented more by his hard core that by Jorge Mendes, agent that signed him in his first years and that purchased a percentage of his federative rights does already some years.

As it aims the half quoted, the Barça had a preferential option of purchase, that achieved by the traspaso of David Villa to the Athletic, but declined this possibility antaño and Saúl renewed with the Athletic of Madrid, one of the main obsessions of the 'Cholo' Simeone, that considers him fundamental in his diagrams. 

It is contesting the European sub-21

As it occurs with Bellerín and Deulofeu, Saúl is concentrated with the Spanish selection in the European sub-21. Indisputable headline under the orders of Celades, only has in mind the party of this Tuesday in front of Italy. It fits to remember that the clause of rescission of the Spanish is of 80 million euros, a quantity resembled the one who would have in mind spend the Catalans in Marco Verratti. We will see how they develop the facts, but Robert Fernández follows tracking the market.
