Barça need to consider as many options as they can when signing and therefore take into account two midfielders for the summer, trying not to miss any opportunity that the market may present.
From the Camp Nou prepare for a market of summer that what less will be one of the most moved and complicated of the last years in the club. The FC Barcelona has in folder to Leo Messi like aim prioritario, but also has had to go up to this level to a replacement of Sergio Busquets, the one who will leave free the mediocentro culé after 15 years like titling.
Thus in the entity, including to the technical body, work in including all the possibilities for said operation, taking into account that the big aim, Martín Zubimendi, keeps on being an option something unlikely. The Real Sociedad limits to ask his clause of 60 million euros and the player no presionará in no sense so that this situation was distinct.
Names with less 'noise' but also very effective
Thus the Catalan team is opened also to have in his diary to players of a profile something lower, or at least with lower projection of future. In front of this the Barça follows considering the possibility of Ruben Neves, and now has incorporated also the names of Oriol Romeu and Guido Rodríguez, two footballers that have contested this season in LaLiga.
Firstly, the Spanish is a bet more than the dispatches taking into account that his signing would be a possibility 'low cost' -some 6 or 8 millions- but ensuring performance in the short term. Oriol is a footballer formed in The Masia and that has a profile of defensive pivote and with good exit of balloon that looks for Xavi, something that precisely likes him to the míster of Guido.
A bargain that the Barça can take advantage of
The champion of the World with Argentina in Qatar finishes agreement in 2024 and follows without seating to negotiate with the Real Betis, which will have to consider his sale this summer if it does not want to leave it go out free in a year. With 29 years, two less than Romeu, Guido could be a possibility of less than 20 'kilos' by his contractual situation and also delivers this profile of mediocentro already consolidated in the elite, and especially in the Spanish football.
