The FC Barcelona needs to look for options of future for his defence. Eric García, of the Manchester City, and Pau Torres, of the Villarreal, are the favourites
This season, Quique Setién only has of three central defences in the staff of the FC Barcelona: 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, this considered untransferable and enjoying with the confidence of the club.
The problems of effective in the saga have caused that the FC Barcelona have to resort to the filial for paliar said problems, being Ronald Araújo the reinforcement chosen. To his 21 years, the central Uruguayan has arrived to the first team to remain , since it has showed good forms and has projection of future. Nevertheless, the sportive direction knows that it is necessary to go on looking the market in search of another option of future.
On the table there are two very clear names. The first is the one of Eric García, head office of 19 years that formed in the Masia and that in summer of 2021 finishes his agreement with the Manchester City. The second is the one of Pau Torres, defence of the Villarreal that to his 23 years has consecrated like one of the best defences of LaLiga Santander, and also like one of which more projection has.
The favourite is Eric García by several reasons. The first is that it knows perfectly the style of the FC Barcelona, since it bred in the inferior categories culés and has followed his training at the side of Pep Guardiola. The second is his age, since with hardly 19 years already knows what is to be headline of usual form in a team of so much level like the Manchester City, by what would ensure quality very durable.
The third factor and can that the definite is his contractual situation. As we have said, Eric García finishes agreement with the Manchester City next summer, by what the FC Barcelona could presionar to try convince him so that it do not renew and force his exit. An exit that could give free in 2021 or this same 2020 to price reduced if the 'cityzens' see in danger to lose to the Catalan free.
Pau Torres likes but is more complicated
Pau Torres has done a tempporadón with the Villarreal and is gone on down the FC Barcelona from does time. Nevertheless, his clause of rescission is of 65 million euros, a price asumible by the club culé, more taking into account that the castellonenses do not want to sell him. The interest of clubs like Manchester City or Manchester United also hampers the operation, although the qualities of the young defender also enamoran.
