The FC Barcelona lived a bitter party against the Real Madrid in the semifinals of the Glass of the King in which they went out to relucir all the lacks of the team and that supposed an unexpected step backwards of the team of Xavi Hernández, that has to suppose a called of attention to all in the club. They were the same feelings that the nights against the Inter, Bayern (this course and the previous), in front of the Eintracht... That remembers to the cycle without final of the culés in the big nights.

Against the Madrid weighed a lot the 'emotion' and the feel won when the difference, to put in the eliminatory, was of only a goal. They were a lot of the factors that influenced and begin to take out too many conclusions. One of the points that have to attack, with speed, is the place of the right side because it is the feeblest position in the team. At present they deliver it to him between Jules Koundé, Ronald Araújo and Sergi Roberto but is clear that in the big nights does not reach.

I cancel, the option of the Barça

From the dispatches of the Barça understand that it is necessary to balance to the team and, for this, each the one who has to play in the place where more seats comfortable. This means that, to average and long term, Ronald Araújo and Koundé have to go back to the axis of the saga and that, thus, it is necessary to look for of urgent way to a right side and, according to the information of the newspaper 'SPORT', the sportive direction is attentive to what can happen with Joao Cancel.

To the Barça likes him his profile, by his polivalencia and the performance that has showed, further of his 'disappearance' in Manchester before arriving to Munich. Although Xavi Hernández has left clear that would want to Juan Foyth, of the Villarreal, and also has sounded Benjamin Pavard, the reality is that they are traspasos extremely complicated by his price.

Of the same way, in the surroundings of Cancel would have left clear to the Barça that the player would be had to do an economic effort to arrive to the Spotify Camp Nou as long as there is "a true commitment in purchasing him in property no this summer but yes in the future". It will be one of the first folders that will attack in May, when have an idea of how will be his situation with the fair play financial of LaLiga.
