KOUNDÉ, ARAÚJO AND SERGI WILL CONTINUE AS LATERALS
Barça rules out the signing of a right-back
Despite the fact that there is no natural right-handed side in the FC Barcelona squad, the problems with the financial 'fair play' would cause the Catalans to desist from the transfer of a footballer to occupy said position
In the FC Barcelona abound at present the problems and remains some time so that they achieve solutions. The situation of the blaugrana with the 'fair play' financial is to the limit and will condition any decision that can take the sportive direction in the market of signings estival. Although they need reinforcements, could finish arriving less than which has asked Xavi Hernández.
The right side is the position that more concerns to the barcelonismo because there is not a natural player. To date, the trainer of Terrassa has gone alternating to the central Jules Koundé and Ronald Araújo, with the support of Sergi Roberto, that although it has played by long like right-handed side, where more stands out is like midfield player. After the exit of Héctor Bellerín there is not a side... And neither it will arrive in the summer, according to a recent information of 'MARK'.
The sportive direction, headed by Jordi Cruyff with the support of the director of the area of football Mateu Alemany, is beginning to make the staff for the next season and, for now, there is not a lot of optimism regarding the possible reinforcements that can arrive in the summer. So much so, right now, would be delimiting the priorities of the team and, between them, would not be the purchase of a side for the right band.
Juan Foyth and Benjamin Pavard, descartados
In the last days had grown the interest of the FC Barcelona in players like Juan Foyth (Villarreal) and Benjamin Pavard (Bayern of Munich), although this last has manifested in different opportunities that feels much more comfortable playing in his natural position, like head office. In any case, the Barcelona had his names in the diary and were the favourite options of the sportive direction in case to be able to fichar to a right-handed side.
However, the two were difficult to achieve by his high prices. From the Villarreal left clear that would not listen offers by the champion of the world by less than his clause of exit, that rises to the 54 million euros, whereas by Pavard from the Bayern neither wanted to negotiate although it remains him only a year more than agreement and has not renewed. Joao Cancel is another of the alternatives, but brush the impossible by his high price of traspaso, that would surpass the 70 'kilos'.
The Barça 'will resolve' with what there is in the staff
To day of today, according to the information of the before quoted source, the intention of the Barça is to follow using what there is in the staff to reinforce the right-handed side. Thus they would have decided to renew to Sergi Roberto and will follow trusting so much in Jules Koundé as in Ronald Araújo, those who also have fungido like sides in this season.
For 'paliar' the absence of the French or of the charrúa in the axis of the saga, pretend fichar to a new central like free agent. The negotiations with Iñigo Martínez are very directed, although it still has not concretised the operation. Likewise, they will throw of the quarry to reinforce the side with the option of Julián Araujo, the one who from the next season will be able to play.
