The Barcelona club expects to fulfil the wish of the trainer egarense and have to César Azpilicueta like main option, but there are more names in the list of possible signings.

Although the incorporation of the right side navarro seems nearer after Chelsea accessed to put him in the market by 13 million euros, still is not ensured further of the verbal agreement that achieved the Barça with the footballer does some months. In this sense, from the Camp Nou study the different alternative in the market of signings and Juan Foyth, player of the Villarreal, has appeared like possible 'plan B' for the right-handed band.

Foyth, without leadership in Argentina

In the selection, however, has lost his importance after Lionel Scaloni left him out of the announcement for the Glass America and included to Nahuel Molina in his plans. The right side of the Udinense also has been in the radar of the Barça in the last months and is considered like one of the footballers with more projection in his position. It arrived like a stranger, but very soon began to add chevrons in the 'albiceleste', sharing the place with Montiel. In said tournament, played five parties, with 320 minutes of action, but has been the 'afterwards' the most surprising.

The bet of the seleccionador Argentinian in Molina is absolute. It played nine of the 11 parties of the eliminatory sudamericanas for Qatar, complete all. It repeated also against Italy in the 'Finalissima' and is, in definite, a right side that has left performances very important for his club and selection.
