If the FC Barcelona wants to follow 'fishing' in the Manchester City, will have to pay. That has been the clear and concrete message of the English group in front of the rumours that situated to both teams with the possibility to carry out several barters in this market of signings of summer. To the English do not interest him the pieces that offer the culés for the barters and will not leave to go out to his 'cracks' if there is not an agreement that really interest them.

This means that, a priori, finish the illusion to achieve the traspaso of Aymeric Laporte (one of the big aims of the Barça in the market) or Bernardo Silva in an operation 'low cost' because the reality is that, as it posed the situation, the group culé went out like the big benefited of the negotiations. The ones of the Etihad Stadium, however, have left clear his intentions and will not accept less than what deserve.

And it is that, as you report them, while in Manchester offered to players consecrated like Laporte, Silva and even Cancel, in the City Condal put to disposal the names of Umtiti, Junior Firpo, Pjanic, Dembélé, Braithwaite or even Sergi Roberto and Lenglet like the big options to achieve an exchange with the 'sky blues'. They are footballers that do not interest to the ones of Pep Guardiola, in spite of the -good- intention of the of Santpedor to help to his ex team and 'club of his life', as he same has recognised.

The position of the City would change only if they offer to players more important and with importance. 'Mark' aims that sondean the names of Frenkie of Jong, Pedri González or Ansu Fati, pieces that to any team would like him have, but is an option that, in any sense, results impossible. The Barça, of any form, goes to undo of footballers that are the future of the club (in spite of the critical financial situation and the urgency to begin the operation gone out).

The only option for the Barça

In front of this panorama, in the dispatches of the Camp Nou have remained with two options: pay by the traspaso of the players or directly forget of them, at least by this summer. The situation, in any case, paints for impossible because there are two marked realities: The Barça does not have money to buy players and the City will not leave them go out free.

It boasts that the English ask, at least, 60 millions by each one, remembering that the City paid 65 'kilos' by the then player of the Bilbao and his value has increased in the last years. On the other hand, from Manchester understand that, with the crisis by the Covid-19, can not ask a high quantity by his players, but equally will not recess his aspirations of 60 millions.
