The arks of the Sportive City Joan Gamper keep attentive in front of any movement that can occur in the market of signings. Now, a new alternative has appeared in the 'radar' of the directors of the Barça, and that it could, at the same time, represent a solution for a problematic inside the bench of Xavi Hernández. It treats of Thomas Meunier, the right side of the Borussia Dortmund, the one who according to a new information, could be between the plans of Joan Laporta for this second half of season.

And it is that in base to the journalist Gerard Romero of 'Jijantes', the club blaugrana would be studying the possibility to incorporate to the Belgian defender to strengthen the bands of the team. However, neither Catalans neither English have defined still any condition on the possible arrival of the player, that only could land in Catalonia by means of a cession by the financial situation of the condales. For the moment, the negotiations keep in total confidentiality.

Nevertheless, a detail that can not be overlooked is that the name of Sergiño Dest would have been put on the table. The option of a barter by both players sounds 'tempting' for the culés, since Xavi does not trust the defensive capacities of the American, by what an exit would be the best alternative for the two parts. In spite of this, the offices of the Camp Nou do not contemplate that the North American go out in the next days.

The ex player of the Ajax feels comfortable in Barcelona and wants to keep inside the changing room to be able to show and win an opportunity for the trainer. On the other hand, Meunier has had a fantastic season with the German group, the one who has kept him like an indisputable headline in all the competitions. Already great more than 2000 minutes in 24 parties since it initiated the campaign, by what his exit, for the moment, presents complicated.

Defensive variants

The need to reinforce the saga is a worry for the group of Laporta, that has like main aim fichar a '9' in this wintry market. Already Nicolás Tagliafico has put to disposal of the club, by what only would be missing that the Barça and the Ajax approach postures to concretise his cession, although it will not be a simple task. The left side has been dominated by Jordi Alba without any apparent competition, and his performance in the last parties have left him portrayed. Regarding the contrary band, Dani Alves, of 38 years, has won him the game to Dest, the one who continues having problems to fit in the diagram of the míster. To only five days that it close the wintry market, the letters are on the table.
