Calendar of FC Barcelona

Eric García is, from the past summer, the obsession of the FC Barcelona to reinforce the defence. After having formed in the Masia, left to the Manchester City, club in which it has gone back an important player but with which finishes agreement in June of 2021. To his 19 years, the Catalan entity considers him a priority and, after it frustrated his arrival in October, fraguará a new attempt in January.

Ronald Koeman has it clear: the grave injury of Gerard Hammered leaves the defence in picture and, in spite of the good exert of Óscar Mingueza, wants to cover the backs with another central in winter. The problem is that the Manchester City follows enrocado in retaining to Eric García​ to try convince him that it renew and, although this last is almost impossible, seems complicated that the Catalan arrive before summer.

It is thus that the FC Barcelona has prepared several alternative desveladas by 'Sportive World'. In spite of that the Managing Commission chaired by Carles Tusquets does not seem that it go to take the definite decision on the signing, the technical office headed by Ramon Plans works to present a report of possible operations for the elect president in January, since Ronald Koeman asks reinforcements.

The first alternative to Eric García calls Antonio Rüdiger, is 27 years old and plays in Chelsea. This season, is not having too leadership to the orders of Frank Lampard that only has bet by him in a party of the Premier League. Given the circumstances, the German defender would see with good eyes his arrival to the Camp Nou in quality of yielded. Far to be a 'profile Murillo', the germano has wide experience in big teams since, before being 'blue', played in the Rome.

The second option also has his origins in Germany and also plays in the Premier League: Shkodran Mustafi, defence of 28 years that is a member of the rows of the Arsenal. Like raisin with Antonio Rüdiger, has seen reduced his leadership and only has contested two parties in the current Premier League to the orders of Mikel Arteta. It treats of a player of big experience and that left big feelings in LaLiga Santander after his go through Valencia.

The return of Todibo, third alternative

In October, the FC Barcelona yielded to Jean-Clair Todibo to the Benfica but, until the moment, the French has not debuted with the picture luso because of the tremenda competition that offer Jan Vertonghen and Nicolás Otamendi in the place of head office. The fault of confidence of the technician Jorge Jesús and the urgencies in the Barcelona defence could precipitate his turn ahead of time, although the Frenchman would wish to know before the intentions of Ronald Koeman that did not finish very convinced with him in summer.
