FC Barcelona know very well that a centre-back will have to leave in the summer, or at least it is a very problematic situation, but it seems that Iñigo Martíne has enough stripes to not be the chosen one

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Although Iñigo Martínez has not had a lot of participation in the last parties with the FC Barcelona, 'Sport' indicates this Friday that the central is one of the players with which explains Xavi Hernández for the next course. The central fichó by two seasons, until June of 2025, and although his index card inscribed only until the next 30 June, the information aims that his continuity is guaranteeed.

This situation would generate a changed of important script if we take into account that the Barça has 'overbookin' for the axis of the saga, what left to the Basque like one of the main options to go out this summer. But when seeming his experencia is very very valued to follow accompanying to the youngsters Cubarsí or Mika Faye, those who the following season will be part of the defence culé.

The Barça has several incógnitas in his defence

Besides, neither it is very clear that will happen with Ronald Araújo, Andreas Christensen or Jules Koundé when being players with very well market and that they could form part, or no, of the reconstruction of this Barça. Koundé Has had to accept his reubicación in the right side, but could attend proposals in a big of the Premier League that gave prominence him like head office.

In the case of Araújo, this season has had irregular performances in fundamental parties, especially in front of the PSG in the turn of the quarter-finals of the Champions League when it was expelled in the first time. All this, added to that Iñigo would have a lot of minutes in this closing of season, trying give back to the team the sólidez defensive that needs to win the four parties that remains him, put to the ex of the Athletic in a favourable position to continue.

The problems of the Athletic, another point to take into account

Also it has to take into account that only a year after abandoning the Athletic, the one of Ondarroa would be one of the alternatives of Ernesto Valverde for the next market of signings. The Basque club needs to reinforce yes or yes the centre of his defence, especially because it will play Champions or Europe League, although it would have to plant an offer on the sufficiently attractive table so that the Barça accept to lose the leadership and the experience of Iñigo of face to the following course.
