Joan Laporta is not satisfied with good part of the current staff of the FC Barcelona and this summer is trying to begin a revolution that will be still in 2022. The president has put up for sale to all the secondary actors of the Barça, beginning for example by Samuel Umtiti and finishing by Junior Firpo, that will go to the Leeds in the next days. Besides, to Philippe Coutinho, Miralem Pjanic or Martin Braithwaite also will look for them gone out to do all the possible box.

One of the zones of the field where the Barça needs to improve more is in defence, that has gone back to be his weak point a campaign more. Thus, the maximum mandator culé has insisted in the idea of fichar a central of level this summer to reinforce this line. As it has commented , the favourites of the entity were by this order Matthijs of Ligt and Aymeric Laporte, two players that could improve a lot the saga culé.

However, in the newspaper 'Sport' ensure that the barcelonistas do not have money neither margin salarial sufficient as to face an operation like this. In the case of the player of the Manchester City, spoke of the possibility that it went in in a barter with Sergi Roberto, but the English do not seem interested in the one of Reus. Without this option, is impossible that the Catalans can pay a traspaso that would not go down of the 45 million euros, in addition to his wage, that is important.

On the other hand, Of Ligt was the favourite of Ronald Koeman, but the journalist Fabrizio Romano, that is used to to have very good information, ensured recently that there are not possibilities that it go out of the Juventus of Turín. The bianconeros will not negotiate and Massimiliano Allegri has he for the season that comes. Fichar To the alone Dutch had been possible by means of an exchange, something that is impossible that suceda, by what the ex of the Ajax also is descartado.

The defence of the Barça flojeó the past course

It is necessary to remember that the past course, of the central of the Barcelona, only Ronald Araújo gave a level high practically all the campaign, showing that in him there is defender for years. Óscar Mingueza also has showed to be a good complement, but the Catalan seems to be far of the level that has to him demand to a defence titularísimo in the Barcelona. Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet were not at all well and have left a lot of doubts, whereas Umtiti almost did not play and the idea is to undo of him.

By all this, Laporta did not doubt in doing with Eric García, that could be an important incorporation so much to short as on a long-term basis. Nevertheless, to the president also had liked him do with somebody more contrasted and with more name. Unfortunately, the club does not have money to do this movement and Koeman will have to conform with the footballers mentioned to defend the goal of Marc-André ter Stegen.
