The sportive direction of the FC Barcelona continues resolving the last fringes regarding his futuribles after Xavi Hernández left clear that Gerard Hammered no longer will be leading in the next season. To be approved the 'crowbars' economic of Joan Laporta this Thursday in the Assembly of Compromisarios, the economy of the club will be saneada and will be able to burst into in the market estival to reinforce the staff.

With all this on the table, the favourite of the technician to give him a dump to the saga keeps on being Jules Koundé. The French of 23 years has a valid agreement with the Seville until 2024, but his wish is to go out of the Sánchez-Pizjuán this same summer. The hispalenses would be had to sell him as long as it arrive a suitable offer, which will have to oscillate the 90 million euros in which it is priced his clause of rescission.

His aerial power and security going out from the bottom do him the complement ideal of Ronald Araújo in defence, turning into one of the defensive pairs more imponentes of Europe of face to the future. However, the negotiations to purchase his services will not be simple because the Frenchman has to several clubs after his steps, being Chelsea the main contendiente in the 'career'.

The 'blues' want to ficharle from the past season, and the change of property that has suffered the entity from the game of Roman Abramovich could give them the 'muscle' financial to tackle his contracting. Xavi recognises that the English carry the forward, since the Barça has problems with the 'fair play' salarial and is working in the incorporation of Robert Lewandowski. The Barcelona want to include some footballer that abarate his traspaso, as Sergiño Dest or Riqui Puig, although for the moment everything is in 'stand by'.

Koulibaly Is the alternative

In spite of that the priority is that the transaction of Koundé arrive to good port, the true is that the directive also has to evaluate other candidates in case his landing failed. It is thus that Kalidou Koulibaly follows waiting for the decision of the Barcelona. The Senegalese does not have in his plans renew with the Napoli and wait 'change of airs' in the market estival. With 30 years, would be a much more economic variant that would give immediate solutions but that does not offer guarantees on a long-term basis.
