According to recent rumors, signing a right back is not a priority Barça. The technicians are contemplating signing one for next season. But it is not one of their priorities. The club focus on bringing Leo back and registaring Araujo and Gavi’s new contracts. Afterwards, Gundo and Inigo Martinez should arrive. Then someone as an alternative to Lewandowski. Only then, if there’s still room in the FFP, Barça will look for a right back.
The match last night against the Rayo highlighted the need for a natural right back. Xavi placed Koundé at right back once again. But the Frenchman, who started strongly in the first phase of the game, gradually faded away. Overall, he did not seem comfortable at this position. Xavi then moved Balde from left to right when Albe replaced Marcos Alonso.
There is a list of candidates for the right position, but they would have to fit. Either a free transfer or someone with a valid contract but a ‘low cost’ one. From the club they ensure that the versatility of Koundé and Araujo works, as well as Sergi Roberto. But there are technicians who want an experienced player who knows how to function.
There are names. Foyth seems to be too expensive. Cancelo will also be expensive, although with Jorge Mendes you never know. Diogo Dalot is renewing with United. Meunier, who wants to wear Barcelona, awaits a call. But considering the fact that he doesn’t make the squad in Dortmund, it looks like a Bellerin-like option. And it won’t work.
