One of the pending tasks of the FC Barcelona is to achieve a player that can serve of competition for Jordi Alba in the left side and that serve of spare for Junior Firpo, the one who probably abandon the Camp Nou this market of signings. The sportive direction of the Barcelona group already would have put hands to the work and handle options to reinforce the defence.

José Luis Gayà is the main candidate to arrive to the Barça, but no the only. To the Barcelona leaders likes him the profile of the captain of Valencia, as 'Sportive World', but there are a lot of stones on the way to achieve his traspaso. José Bordalás, new trainer of the group 'ché', already has left clear that expects that the defender continue in Mestalla, because it sees him like a key piece so that the team go back to be competitive.

That is a barrier 'simple' to surpass because, at the end of the day, will be the directors those who will decide and, conciendo the delicate economic situation of the group valencianista, the most likely is that if it arrives an offer, will give him exit. That is the big problem for the Barça because the clásula of recisión of Gayà is of 40 million euros, a figure that the blaugrana can not allow and that, although they will try to negotiate, Valencia will not want to recess.

By this reason, the club has activated his radar and has in looks it to possible 'replacements' in case that Gayà no recale in the Camp Nou. The priority, in any case, is that have some experience in the football of first level and that have an affordable price, something that will be complicated as it is the market in the actuality.

The Barça is attentive, besides, to Oleksander Zinchenko, of the Manchester City, in an operation that could concretise with a barter with the English. However, of agreement to the information that handles 'MD', is not an option that poses for the moment in the dispatches of the Camp Nou.

Also it has sounded Robin Gosens, of 26 years, of the Atalanta. To the left-handed side subtracts him a year of agreement in Italy and presents like one of the possible options for the Barça, but sources of the club, desvela the before quoted source, descartan his traspaso, decanting more by Nicolás Tagliafico, of the Ajax, the one who would be interested in abandoning the capital of Low Countries. The Argentinian is one of the most striking sides of the market and a footballer that has the profile to play of Barcelona.

The option in the quarry

In the last months has boasted that Alejandro Balde, young talent that has played this course with the Barça B, has options to go up to the first team because the staff and Barcelona directors have remained loved with his exert. However, the club protects the option because it still is very inexperimentado (is 17 years old) and prefer to a player with more path that can 'compete him' the position to Jordi Alba, the left side headline of the group directed by Ronald Koeman.
