Calendar of FC Barcelona

The planning of the FC Barcelona for the next market of summer has several clear aims, and one of them is can complete the return of Joao Cancel. In spite of the exit of Xavi Hernández, and the arrival of Hansi Flick, the Barcelona club has kept his idea to concretise the permanence of the Portuguese in the entity, although the German technician also has left clear that would remain satisfied with another option.

And it is that the Barça still has not been able to advance too much in the negotiations with the Manchester City by Cancel, taking into account that the English look for an operation of some 25-30 million euros, a figure that the culés are not had to credit. In front of this, Flick has asked him to the club that consider also of way very concrete the signing of Jeremie Frimpong.

Hansi Flick Follows closely the growth of Frimpong

The trainer wants to to the Dutch in the staff by his quality, youth and speed, especially after his big performance in the Bayer Leverkusen of Xabi Alonso. The international with Low Countries finds contesting the Eurocopa, by which is little likely that advance terms with the player, but yes that Deco could try know which is his posture of face to this summer, especially taking into account that a lot of players of the Leverkusen have left clear that will not move , at least, until 2025.

Although it is clear that for any operation, the Barça would have to expect to return to the rule of the 1/1, 'Rac1' has signalled that Hansi Flick values enough the polivalencia of Frimpong. The reality is that the player is not a classical side, since his best version saw playing of carrilero, almost extreme, with few defensive responsibilities, but to his 23 years could have a big margin to improve some appearances to be headline in the Barça in a line of four defences.

The past course the carrilero right was very important in the diagram of Xabi Alonso, in which it deployed by the right band in three distinct roles: side, carrilero and extreme. In 47 parties, the Dutch annotated 14 goals and assisted in 12 occasions, leaving clear that his contribution in offensive also was a big factor for the success of the Leverkusen in the past campaign, in which the German team achieved the Bundesliga and the glass of Germany.
