The past market of signings of winter, the FC Barcelona decided to yield to Jean-Clair Todibo to the Schalke 04 with option of purchase by part of the German team, that will have to pay 25 million euros before final of season if it wants to it to him remain in property. An exit that left take the Barcelona defence and that, in case to confirm the traspaso, will keep the fault of effective in the saga that there is at present.

To day of today, Quique Setién only has of three central defences in the staff:Gerard Hammered, that already has 33 years and whose final of career approaches increasingly; Samuel Umtiti, that follows without reaching the physical level that had before his constant problems of knee; and Clément Lenglet, to the that the Cantabrian technician keeps by behind his compatriot in the important parties.

Thus, the idea of the technical office is to reinforce the central axis of the defence with a young footballer but of level contrasted. According to the informations published by the Ran dello Sport, one of which more likes is Luiz Felipe, head office of the Lazio that is showing a big performance to his 22 years and that already does months that is gone on down Éric Abidal.

This Brazilian defence stands out for being versatile, since it is a footballer of stood out defensive solidity but that also is able to give some fluidity to the game taking out the balloon from backwards. Besides, it goes well by up and it is corpulento (measures 1,87 metres and weighs 80 kilos). His value of market in Transfermarkt is of 20 million euros, but by the importance that is having in the second classified of the Series To, this precii could go up enough.

The past summer, tried with Of Ligt

The past summer, one of the big serials was starred by Matthijs of Ligt, the defence by which half Europe was had to bid and that finally finish in the Juventus of Turín in return of 75 million euros more others so many in variables that elevate the operation to almost a total of 90. The FC Barcelona stepped strong by him, but finish fracasando in his attempt.

After the refusal of the Dutch player to the Barcelona club to leave to the Series To Italian, the FC Barcelona did not move index card for fichar to another defence. The signing of Of Ligt corresponded to a strategic opportunity of market and no to a sportive need, by what from Can Barça preferred to bet by what already had home. Now, the situation has changed and yes would wish fichar to a central.
