Juan Foyth, as with Zubimendi, is an option that Xavi Hernández has as a priority in the event that he can make important signings in the next market, especially if there is another important exit
This Tuesday Jules Koundé was one of the proper names of the FC Barcelona and no precisely by his absence in the crash in front of the Valladolid. The French would have taken advantage of a meeting with Xavi Hernández to ask him not returning like right side title the next season and have his main role like head office, although also some informations signalled that it is opened to an exit of the club.
In both stages all is related with his discomfort to follow playing out of his natural position, something that the Barça will have to resolve yes or yes. It is thus that in the case that arrived an offer by the Frenchman, always upper to the 60 millions, the team culé would evaluate it in group with the own defender and would put to Juan Foyth like his maximum priority to the moment to replace to Koundé.
A player with a similar profile
The Argentinian, also able to play head office, is the right-handed side preferred by Xavi, but no by the entity, that understands that his upper price to the 40 millions turn it into a possibility forbidden. However, a sale of the Frenchman yes that would mean the opening for this possibility, as it has informed 'Jijantes', standing out that the Argentinian will be still in folder while it exist the option that Koundé finish going out.
From the changing room wanted to ensure this Tuesday that the French does not think in leaving the Barça and only has asked to return to the centre of the defence, although with the mediocentro being a priority for the Catalan team, as well as Messi and Gündogan, the situation is not alentadora. Except an option like the one of Cancel, with cession of by half, does not seem that the Barça can move index card by a side title in summer.
Simply it is not being a priority
The operations will have to be thought calmly and with Christensen being also an untransferable name, to the equal that Eric García, there is not too space for sales in the defence. The Barcelona team is centred in achieving a pivote of first level, as well as improve his line of attack, where expect the majority of the exits in this next market.
