FC Barcelona have lost defensive solidity this season, and one of the points has been the full-backs. That is why the Catalans need to define how they will face the summer with the puzzle they have in both positions

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Joao Cancel finishes his cession with the FC Barcelona the next 30 June and only Alejandro Balde, that will be lesionado several weeks more, is the only fixed headline of the left side. It is thus that right now the Barcelona group needs to define his planning regarding sides, especially if it plans to reinforce with players formed in the Masia or with some yielded that it can return.

Some have played this season to loan and will go back for the pre-season as it is the case of Álex Fence in and Julián Araujo, two footballers that can cover the left and the right of the defence, respectively. Both footballers represent the possibility to improve the basic wardrobe without a cost of traspaso, although without the contrasted of a footballer as I Cancel.

The Barça has to decide go in Cancel and Koundé?

The club values the continuity of the Portuguese, although it no longer is so likely as it believed in a principle. His performance has suffered a bajón considerable playing by the left. The Manchester City does not have he and if they do not receive an offer of traspaso, would access to yield him a campaign more to the Barcelona team, something that in consequence could open him the door of exit to another side of the team like Jules Koundé.

Although certainly Araujo and Valley do not have neither much less his place ensured in the staff, the true is that they are much more appeals like options of market if this means to sell to a player like Koundé or not having to fichar to Cancel, and remain with a new cession of the luso. By his part, the French has left clear that does not aspire to be followed as lateral, by what with the 'overbooking' of head offices that exists, could finish going out.

Fort, Valley, Araujo... Alternative 'free' for the summer

Finally it finds Héctor Fort, a footballer that likes a lot to Xavi and that it can even be headline during the pre-season if Balde still is drop and Cancel still has not defined his future. The canterano is also a 'signing' like Valley and Araujo, although already with the weight to having played this season and deliver some security in his performances.
