The right-back is one of the positions that generates the most debate in the sports management of FC Barcelona to plan the summer transfer roadmap. Hands tied by the financial 'Fair play', the club manages several alternatives
Although the staff of the FC Barcelona has until four alternatives that can occupy the right side (Ronald Araújo, Jules Koundé, Sergi Roberto and Alejandro Balde), Xavi Hernández no descarta add a carrilero right-handed in summer if the 'Fair Play' financial allows it. After the failure with Héctor Bellerín, the technical body and the directive work to find a natural player for a position that has given a lot of headaches in the last years.
In this sense, the directive handles several alternative 'low cost' that would have the 'OK' of the technical body. However, the main challenge of the Barça is to attain adjust his mass salarial to the requirements of LaLiga and, at the same time, convince to the patronal of flexibilizar his requirements to the club. Without the possibility to activate 'crowbars' the options reduce much more. These are some of the names that are still in the orbit culé to occupy the right side in the 2023/24.
Diogo Dalot (Manchester United)
The luso has agreement until June of 2024 and, with a value of market of 35 'kilos', is one of the most interesting options of market by youth, quality and experience. For the moment it follows having the confidence of Erik have Hag, a factor that would hamper the negotiations, since the 'network devils' have a clause of immediate renewal.
Benjamín Pavard and Noussair Mazraoui (Bayern Munich)
So much the Frenchman like the Moroccan have lost the titularity in Munich and aim to go out in summer. In the case of Mazraoui, a cession would be the most feasible, as has agreement until 2026. With Pavard would attain a traspaso by a mount near to the 25 million euros, a mount acceptable for a lateral champion of the world with France the one who, to his 27 years, still can return to the elite.
Thomas Meunier (Dortmund)
One of the alternative 'low cost' that has sounded with elder forces in the orbit of the Barça this season. The Belgian culminates agreement in 2024 and the Borussia Dortmund will not hinder his exit by a mount near to the 10 'kilos'. With 31 years, the physical problems have mermado the performance of the defender in the last two seasons, being this the main doubt that generates his possible signing.
Juan Foyth (Villarreal)
The Argentinian has left to be intocable for the Villarreal from the arrival of Quique Setién and the Barça could close, maybe, a cession without option of compulsory purchase. The one of The Silver has agreement until 2026 and, hardly, the 'yellow submarine' will leave him leave by less than 20 million euros, since his traspaso closed in 2021 in return of 15 'kilos'.
Bad Taste (yielded in Lyon by Chelsea)
The young defender of 19 years will have to return to Chelsea in summer, once conclude his cession by six months in the Lyon, club where formed . The 'blues' him ficharon in return of 30 million euros in January and subtracts to see if in London prefer to give him more shooting by a more yielded year to another club or, by the contrary, opt by 'fish him' immediately to reinforce a staff that follows rejuvenating to base of chequebook.
Jeremy Frimpong (Leverkusen)
The player of 22 years is considered as 'the fashionable side' in Europe thanks to his good moment with the Bayer Leverkusen. The Dutch adds 9 goals and 9 assistances in 40 parties with the ones of Xavi Alonso, statistics that have woken up the interest of several 'big'. His value of current market reaches the 35 millions in Transfermarkt and, with valid agreement until 2025, dificilmente the German group accept less than 50 'kilos' for leaving him go.
Alexander Bah (Benfica)
The international Danish has been intocable for Roger Schmidt this season, contesting a total of 39 parties in which it adds a so much and six assistances. His agreement finalises in 2027, by what the Benfica would demand to pay his clause of rescission to leave him leave (60 million euros). The profile of Bah would fit without problems in the diagram of Xavi, but the requirements of the Benfica are too high.
