FC Barcelona continues to defoliate the daisy to reinforce the right side. There are several names on the sports management agenda but, as in all operations, it will depend on the economic factor

Calendar of FC Barcelona

In the last hours has confirmed that the FC Barcelona has reactivated the contacts with the Manchester City to try do with the services of Joao Cancel during this market of signings. Xavi Hernández has him like priority to reinforce the right side, position in which only 'account' with a Sergiño Dest that is in the ramp of exit or the solutions of emergency of Ronald Araújo, Sergi Roberto or Jules Koundé.

The egarense has asked an extra effort to the blaugrana so that the international with Portugal land in the City Condal, but is conscious that it will not be a simple operation. And it is that, although it does not go in in the plans of Pep Guardiola, are not by the work of 'give him' and already have given the first slam to the Barça: it will be a traspaso definite or will not negotiate. Therefore, they had frozen the contacts up to now.

Juan Foyth returns to the diary

In the City Condal have very clear that negotiate with the picture of the 'sky blues' never is simple task and, thus, have other names in the recámara. The last that has gone back to the list of possible candidates to reinforce the right band is Juan Foyth. According to a recent information of 'Jijantes', the Argentinian footballer would have asked to the Villarreal go out, this summer, to add to the rows of the Barça.

Up to now, every time that have tanteado to the right side, from the dispatches of The Ceramics have insisted in that has a clause of exit and that only will negotiate by these 54,6 million euros. It is an inaccessible figure for the interests blaugrana, by what in case that they insist in his incorporation, will have to bet by a formula 'imaginative' that allow to bring to Foyth to low cost. It seems a very complicated operation, at least for now.

Other options in the table of the Barça

I cancel and the Argentinian are not the only in the list, fortunately. From a flat second, appear players like Iván Fresneda or Pablo Maffeo, those who also have been related with a possible movement to the City Condal, but do not generate consensus between the sportive direction and staff technical. For example, the player of the Valladolid likes a lot to Deco and company, but Xavi Hernández has put a lot of reticencia to his possible incorporation because it is a very young side, with little experience and that 'would take' in adapting , as it considers.

Fresneda Could not abandon Pucela by less than ten million euros, although his clause of exit stipulates that they are 20 'kilos'. On the other hand, a player that likes more to the trainer of Terrassa is Pablo Maffeo, of the RCD Mallorca, and of agreement to the last informations already has been offered to the Barça by six or eight millions. To the sportive direction does not convince him, but no descartan his incorporation. Everything depends of the Fair Play financial.
