Joan Laporta has hartado of the current staff of the FC Barcelona and this summer will try to begin a revolution. 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. Besides, Philippe Coutinho, Miralem Pjanic or Martin Braithwaite also will go out to do all the possible box and reduce the mass salarial to do gap for the signings.

But no only the acting or those that less play go to be transferibles, but the maximum mandator even will listen offers by 'heavy weights' as Antoine Griezmann or Ousmane Dembélé. Besides, in case that they do not accept an important discount in his wage, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba, Gerard Hammered and Sergi Roberto also could go. In summary, a thorough renewal of the team for which will do lacking signings of level.

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. Of the central of the team, only Ronald Araújo has given a level high practically all the course, 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 have not been at all well and have left a lot of doubts. The French has completed his worst season since it plays in Spain, whereas the Barcelonan has not been able to recover his best version after his injury and could not going back to do it. On the other hand, Umtiti almost has not played and not even explains for the course that comes. Thus, Laporta pretends fichar a central 'top' for the next campaign as they aim from 'The Chiringuito'.

The Barça will go to by Laporte or Of Ligt

The journalist José Álvarez, that follows the information of the Barcelona, ensured that the blaugrana want to incorporate an important defender. The favourites would be Matthijs of Ligt and Aymeric Laporte​, of the Juventus of Turín and of the Manchester City, respectively. Both have sounded in several occasions for the Barça, especially the Dutch, that was almost fichado in 2019, but that at the end went to the Juve. The bianconero has a value of market of 75 million euros, whereas the ex of the Athletic 'slope' 50 'kilos'.

The two are defenders with a big exit of balloon, heights and have experience. The Dutch is 21 years old, but carries already varied in the elite, whereas the French has 26. The ex of the Ajax could go out of the Juve if the Italians do not classify for the Champions League by economic questions and the Barcelona could take advantage of this situation. By his part, the Frenchman has played less than the expected in the City this course, is likely that want to go and from the club could it to him put to easy.
