Calendar of FC Barcelona

The name of Aymeric Laporte would be one of which could abandon Manchester this next market of summer. The defender of the Selection of Spain has threatening from does several weeks to the Croat Josko Gvardiol, also in diary of Real Madrid and Chelsea, by what his future in the City of Pep Guardiola is far to be ensured.

As we already inform this past weekend in FCBN, this situation has alerted immediately to a FC Barcelona that has had in folder to the central from his stage in the Athletic Club. The defender, as well as it has happened with other so many canteranos of the Basque team, always has been seen like a piece that would fit perfectly in the style of Barcelona game.

In fact, the arrival of Laporte to The Red confirmed these thoughts, but his good present in a team that does not need to sell did that the Barça went forgetting a bit of this possibility. However, the English team is preparing a revolution in his staff of the next season and his left-handed profile and of good technician with the balloon would fit perfectly in what it looks for Xavi for this part of his staff.

With a cotización that does not expect by less than 40 millions by part of the City, the Catalan team has besides another problem: the strong competition. The another big admirer that always has had the Spanish player is Paris Saint-Germain, the one who besides yes has a need in the short term in his central defence. The current leader of Tie it 1 has to Sergio Bouquets finishing agreement in summer, in addition to a Kimpembe that happens too gone on down the infirmary.

After closing to Milan Skriniar like free player from the next 1 July, the Parisian group looks for at least another central of first level to reinforce his defence, that for the next course only would have ensured to Marquinhos. In front of this, the Barça, further of the money, will need to have of his side the will of the player, as well as that Guardiola do not facilitate his exit to the French team.

Important changes

An operation of this type for the defence would mean the safe exit of a footballer that this season has surrendered to a big level: Andreas Christensen. His value of market, and his arrival 'free' in 2022, do it like the ideal option so that the Barça can go in in the bidding of Laporte. The another option, much less likely, is that the Barça him of exit to Eric García, Marcos Alonso and Jordi Alba, understanding that Laporte would be alternative of Balde and Christensen would keep in staff like the another central of Xavi.
