Looking ahead to the summer of 2024, the incorporation of a left-footed winger is on FC Barcelona's agenda. Joao Félix has many 'ballots' to be chosen, but the name of Luis Díaz has once again been on the table

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The father of Luis Díaz, attacker of 26 years of the Liverpool, recognised in the last hours that "until the moment, he (Luis) has not said me at all on the Barcelona, but is true that Luis is follower of the Barcelona and would be a his dream arrive there". It is a sentence that has remembered the moment in which the FC Barcelona, in winter of the season 2021/2022 had his name in the diary like alternative for his attack.

In this moment, despuntaba in the Port wine like one of the big talents in the European football. With the arrival of Xavi Hernández, in November of 2021, valued his profile by his speed, criterion and goal. It had added16 targets in the first stretch of the season and hanía turned into the fashionable extreme in Europe. The Liverpool finish doing with his services, in January of 2022, at a rate of 45 million fixed euros more other 20 'kilos' in variables.

The interest that a day had the Barça remained there. It did not have a lot of more transcendence, but the statements of his father could 'bring him' again to the conversation although has agreement with the 'Reds' until the summer of 2027 and that is to taste in Merseyside. And it is that the blaugrana are in the research of a left extreme for the next season, while deshojan the margarita on himself Joao Félix will remain finally or no. Both cases, would suppose investments very big.

Luis Díaz and Joao Félix, distinct profiles

The Colombian, of 26 years, is one of the swiftest extremes of the Premier League and a player that constantly is marking differences by his capacity to surpass rival in speed, but also to the hour of desacelerar to send finish to goal or find lines of pass. In England, although it has not been able to be so determinant in what to goals refers (15 goals in 60 parties), yes that it has comported like a player that desatasca to the Liverpool by the ease for 'attract' rivals that try to defend him.

Díaz is continuously generating superiorities and spaces that are key for the Liverpool. It is a profile of pure extreme, with aggressiveness and speed that can be key. By the another side is a Joao Félix that, with a different profile, the Barça knows until where and how can arrive. In his first months in the City Condal, in the middle of his cession from the Athletic of Madrid, has showed to be a player with 'magic' and with a sinfín of technical resources that allow him, in a lot of cases, be determinant in the plans of Xavi Hernández.

The luso is less 'aggressive' and has a profile that allows him fit in different positions and diagrams, something that is taking advantage of the Barça, but that does not finish to explode. Already it happened him in the Athletic of Madrid and also in Chelsea. It is not a player that, of permanent way, was able to decide parties by himself same, although his talent was innegable. It is of these players with so many 'details' that force to loan attention and that force to the rival to defend him with a lot of precision.

The common factor between Joao and Díaz

They are different profiles, definitely, but that require of a big investment, without place to doubts. Have in common that they are very valued by his respective teams and that any movement goes to be millionaire, and this in the Barça know it very well. The Liverpool would not leave to escape to the player by a mount low (considering that they bought it by 45 millions), whereas different informations suggest that the Athletic of Madrid pretends to see to Joao by no less than 70 'kilos'.
