FC Barcelona is still looking forward to replace Luis Suarez and on Tuesday he would have met with Jorge Mendes. Rodrigo likes and could end Barca in a hypothetical carambola
It remains little more than a week so that the wintry window of traspasos remain enclosed and do not allow to close more incorporations. Before this suceda, in the FC Barcelona will multiply efforts to close the incorporation of a leading centre that allow to cover the gap left by Luis Suárez, that will be recovering of the operation of his meniscus, at least, until the month of April.
Given the circumstances, Quique Setién opened the doors to the arrival of an offensive reinforcement and the sportive direction already moves to find this piece. Of course, it does it with several alternatives on of the table and, although any of them goes to be simple to close, the technical office will play all the letters on of the tapete to content the needs of a staff that is without his second maximum goleador.
In this same direction and according to the informations published by Sportive World, Eric Abidal, Ramon Plans and Òscar Grau gathered the past Tuesday with Jorge Mendes, the super agent of the empire Gestifute that carries big quantity of footballers, possibly in seen to open some possibility of market that allow to the FC Barcelona face up to reinforce his forward.
The informations aim to that the excellent relation of Mendes with Peter Lim, owner of Valencia, could help to convince him to access on sale of Rodrigo, that would encipher in a figure that rondaría the 50 or 60 million euros. Of course, it treats of a figure inalcanzable to tocateja for the Barça in these moments, but yes could have a pair of alternative formulas to close his arrival.
The first way would be the one who already detail in 'FCBN' during the Wednesday: a cession until final of season with an option of compensatory purchase, in which the Barça would pay a traspaso higher in summer to compensate these six months of cession in which Valencia would lose to his star in profit of the team of Quique Setién.
The 'carambola' of Rodrigo
The previously quoted media also especula with a second corresponding option to a 'carambola' using the influence of Mendes: the Portuguese is representative of Nélson Semedo, player that the Barça considers transferible and by which could take out some 45 million euros (the offers of the past summer rondaban this figure) by what, if it closed his sale, would have sufficient money as to attack the signing of Rodrigo satisfying the economic expectations of Valencia.
