The barter that carry to Antoine Griezmann to the Athletic of Madrid and to Saúl Ñíguez to the FC Barcelona is increasingly a reality. The two groups is negotiating the conditions of this exchange and as it explains could be question of days that there is an official agreement. Right now, the big problem of the operation is to see how compensate the colchoneros to the Barça by the greater value of market that has the French.

As 'Transfermarkt', the value of the 'Principito' is of 60 million euros, whereas the one of the midfield player is of 40. Therefore, the team barcelonista expects to receive a compensation by this difference. To the Catalans would like them that the payment was in cash because they need income to struggle against the economic crisis that there is in the club, but the rojiblancos are not by the work to pay.

By this reason, in the Barcelona have asked after two footballers that could complete the deal. It treats of Mario Beautiful and Renan Lodi, that are two names that to the Barça fit him by his needs in defence. The blaugrana need a left-handed side after the exit of Junior Firpo and both could fulfil this role. Of this form, no presionaría to Alejandro Balde, that is the big alternative for the place in these moments.

In the case of Beautiful, the ex canterano of the Real Madrid is a central reconverted to side. The also ex of the Espanyol stands out more like defender, but in band has showed to know manage with tarpaulin thanks to his big deal with the balloon and to his physicist. Lodi himself Is a carrilero left-handed pure and in attack can be dangerous, but in defence sometimes has disconnections that can cost goals, as it showed in the final of the Glass America with Brazil.

The value of Lodi and Beautiful could be a problem

The Barça would want to that one of the two went in in the operation beside Saúl to accept the barter. It fits to stand out that the Brazilian has a value of 25 million euros, whereas the Madrilenian 'slope' some 35. In both cases, with the numbers in the hand, the Barça could have to compensate the difference paying an extra money, although all will depend on the valuation that do both clubs and no of which already has done 'Transfermarkt'.
