Juan Foyth is one of the many names that FC Barcelona's sports management has monitored to strengthen its right-back, but it is a complicated option due to Villarreal's economic demands. The culés, in any case, value positively his profile

One of the big aims of the FC Barcelona in this final stretch of the market of signings is to achieve the incorporation of a right side 'natural' and, like this, avoid that players like Jules Koundé or Sergi Roberto play in a position in which they do not feel comfortable and that does not allow them surrender as they wanted to. The name of Joao Cancel is the first in the diary, but in the list of possible candidates keep Iván Fresneda, Arnau Martínez or Juan Foyth.

The Argentinian, until does some months, was one of the big priorities of Xavi Hernández to reinforce to the Barça and, in fact, during the past summer were near of ficharle by 20 million euros. However, in this opportunity seems to be a very complicated incorporation by the economic requirements of the Villarreal, that would not leave him go out by less than 50 'kilos'. It is not a viable operation for the culés, for now. But still it does not have descartado to 100%.

Foyth Generates consensus in the Barça

According to an information published by the journalist Javier Miguel, although the priority is Joao Cancel, with which already would have an agreement in personal terms thanks to his agent Jorge Mendes, in the Barça also are attentive to achieve to a right side with a much more defensive profile to try achieve balance in the defensive saga. Already with Alejandro Balde have to a player that has tendency to add to the attack and understand that they have to compensate backwards.

That was the first reason by which Juan Foyth went back to be linked with the Barça in the last days, but there are not a lot of possibilities that it concretise his incorporation. It does not be necessary to overlook that the Villarreal is not in the need to generate an important sale and that the right side Argentinian is a vital piece for Quique Setién and company. It is an alternative 'impossible', at least for now.
