It does a pair of weeks, the signing of Marcos Alonso by the FC Barcelona seemed done. The agreement with the player of 31 years was total for ficharle by three seasons, until June of 2025, but the insistence of Chelsea to include him in the 'operation Aubameyang' has complicated the things in the last hours. In this sense, the managerial culé already handles a 'Plan B' in case it failed the arrival of the Madrilenian: Javi Galán.

For the directive and the technical body, the defender of the Celtic of Vigo is an interesting alternative that can give the size in front of the mission to relieve to Jordi Alba that it does not cross his best moment and to the one who the age already begins to happen him bill. The problem is that the one of Badajoz would not arrive by a mount low. Although the Barça handle a near budget to the 10 million euros to finish to reinforce his saga, the Galician group, hardly, will accept to sell him by less than his clause of rescission.

The same is of 18 'kilos', the double of what Joan Laporta expects to pay by Marcos Alonso to Chelsea. With the Madrilenian, the problem roots in that the club needs ingresar at least 18 million net euros by the sale of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to free mass salarial and inscribe to Jules Koundé fed up to expect by his debut, which has had to expect a pair of weeks of unexpected form.

The another alternative to inscribe to the French was to recess wages, but differ emolumentos without signing extensions of agreement will not resolve at all in terms of 'fair play' financial for LaLiga. Taking for granted that Memphis Depay will not leave money in box after his exit and that Frenkie of Jong will not move of the club in summer, to the directive does not remain him of another that sell to the forward gabonés, but this operation has to be independent to the one of Marcos Alonso to avoid more problems.

The right side is not descartado

In spite of the interest of the Barça in Javi Galán, the priority culé keeps on being the signing of Marcos Alonso. The side follows to the margin of the group in Stamford Bridge and was not summoned for the party of the Saturday in front of the Leeds United (defeat 3-0), by which Thomas Tuchel is still thinking that the player of 31 years will go out in brief in spite of returning to the trainings the past week. In addition to the interest blaugrana, 'The Gazzetta dello Sport' ensures that the Lazio is very interested in the Spanish defender, by which at all can take for granted for the future of the '3'.
