Barça's central defense will look very different for next season. The Catalans have brought Christensen and will be looking for a left-footed defender, with Alessio Romagnoli, Lisandro Martínez and Inñigo Martínez as the main candidates
Xavi Hernández already warned to the FC Barcelona on the existent need to reinforce some positions of the team in order to go back to be competitive during the next season. One of the demarcations that will suffer more modifications will be the central zone of the defence, in where the Catalans already have done with the services of Andreas Christensen and will give him gone out to several active after the 'overbooking' ocasionado with the arrival of the Danish.
However, and with Clément Lenglet like one of the main candidates to leave the rows of the square directed by Xavi Hernández, the Barcelona group will find without left-handed head offices in his staff. For this reason, the trainer of Terrassa would ask him an effort to the entity and would be in research of a defender that cover the left part of the saga with his natural profile.
In this stage, from the offices of the Camp Nou have put like main candidates to three footballers. The first of them would be the Italian Alessio Romagnoli. The central of 27 years finishes his bond with the AC Milan in June of this year, by what would arrive with the letter of freedom under the arm. Nevertheless, the possibilities of the barcelonistas antojan remote because of the hard competition that will have to confront in the 'conflict' by the player, since Chelsea and the Seville are after his steps and would have it like priority.
The following defender that is in the 'diary' of possible signings blaugranas would be Lisandro Martínez. The Argentinian of the Ajax has sounded from does a time to reinforce the retaguardia of the Catalans, but his operation is more than complicated since has agreement with the group 'ajaccied' until 30 June 2025. Therefore, the culés would be forced to negotiate with some Dutch that would not leave to go out to one of his figures by less than 25 million euros.
Iñigo Martínez, the 'covered'
Finally, from Can Barça would have put looks it in the central of the Athletic of Bilbao, Iñigo Martínez. The footballer is an old wish of the Catalan institution that would not see with bad eyes have his experience in the defence of the team and could try again his contracting in summer. In spite of this, the barcelonistas do not have the signing of a new defender like priority, since the economic situation of the club invites to be careful to the hour to go in to the market of signings, and when having 4 active in the position, the incorporation of a central raisin to a flat second.
