After closing the signing between Catalans and English by Ferran Torres, the FC Barcelona wants to continue enjoying of his good relation with the Manchester City to follow working. The saga blaugrana is neglected, and if the team wants to raise head in the second half of the season, has to add new talents that complement the defence.

With this in mind, the newspaper 'The Sun' has informed that the Barcelona directive would be after the track of Aymeric Laporte, and is a priority in the City Condal for this market. The player would be the ideal spare for Samuel Umtiti, the one who does not have the confidence of the trainer, and is allocated to abandon Catalonia in the weeks to come.

The spare generacional is sucediendo right now in different flanks of the staff, but the saga is remaining backwards. A solidity in the 'four of the bottom' is an indispensable characteristic if the aim is to go back to be between the best.
