Gonçalo Guedes Could return to LaLiga this month and emulate to his mate Adama Traoré like wintry reinforcement of the FC Barcelona. The extreme luso of the Wolverhampton has the 'OK' of Xavi Hernández to turn into the replacement of Memphis Depay after his signing by the Athletic of Madrid, as long as the ones of Julen Lopetegui endorse the cession of the of Benavente until final of season.

With a pair of so many and an assistance in 19 apparitions, Guedes has gone of more to less from his arrival to England. The adaptation of the luso has not been easy and his relation with the Spanish technician neither is the best, by what would be loved to return to LaLiga six months after his exit of Valencia. However, the 'Wolves' paid 32.6 million euros by his traspaso and, with agreement until June of 2027, a loan without option of compulsory purchase in where the Barça assume the whole of his wage seems the only road to the operation.

Guedes Invoices around 3 'kilos' net to the year, by what his index card would not represent a problem for the Barça regarding 'fair play', as long as it concretise the exit of Depay. To this it would be necessary to add him, maybe, a mount extra by the cession, and there if they could complicate him the things to the managerial culé. The exit of Depay will leave around 4 'kilos' in box, as it confirmed the journalist Fabrizio Romano. With this, perhaps went sufficient to pay the arrival of Gonçalo.

The good news for the surroundings blaugrana is that the player has full disposal to dress the T-shirt culé and, with Jorge Mendes (his agent) at the head of the negotiation, would not have to have too many problems to arrive to an agreement with a Wolverhampton that already has closed a pair of recent businesses with the Barça (Adama, Francisco Trinçao). This yes, with less than two weeks for the closing of the wintry market, the operation has to gestarse prompt.

Valencia also wants to recover to Guedes

Another option for the player of 26 years to return to LaLiga is pactar his return to Valencia. The ones of Gennaro Gattuso would be happy to recover him, although they know that the negotiation will not be easy. Previous to the World-wide, Guedes left clear cuán special was for him play in Mestalla. "I miss Valencia. It was a place in which I happened 5 years, felt me very happy and very very received from the start, the people spoke very well of me, but was a decision that had to take and am happy with my decision . I expect that it go him all very well to Valencia", said after knowing his absence of the final list of Fernando Santos.
