The three names that manage Xavi and Barça to cover…
Xavi Hernández has already warned FC Barcelona about the existing need to strengthen certain positions in the team in order to become competitive again next season. One of the demarcations that will undergo more changes will be the central area of defense, where the Catalans have already done with the services of Andreas Christensen and will give him exit to several assets after the ocasionado of ‘overbooking’ with the arrival of the Danish.
However, and with Clément Lenglet as one of the main candidates to leave the ranks of the square led by Xavi Hernández, the Barcelona group will find themselves without a left-handed seat in their squad. For this reason, the coach of Terrassa would require an effort from him in the entity and would be looking for a defender who would cover the left part of the saga with his natural profile.
In this stage, from the offices of the Camp Nou have put as main candidates three footballers. The first of them would be the Italian Alessio Romagnoli. The 27-year-old central ends his link with AC Milan in June this year, by what would happen with the letter of freedom under his arm. Nevertheless, the possibilities of the barcelonistas antojan move away because of the hard competition that will have to face in the ‘conflict’ for the player, since Chelsea and Sevilla are after his steps and would have him as priority.
The next defender to appear in the possible blaugrana ‘diary’ would be Lisandro Martínez. The Argentinian from Ajax has been ringing for some time to strengthen the Catalans’ retaguardia, but his operation is more than complicated since he has an agreement with the ‘ajaccié’ group until June 30, 2025. From then on, the culés would be forced to negotiate with some Dutch who would not let out to any of his figures by less than 25 million euros.
Iñigo Martínez, the “cover”
To finish, of Can Barça would have put the eye in the central of Athletic de Bilbao, Iñigo Martínez. The footballer is an old wish of the Catalan institution which would not take a dim view of his experience in the defense of the team and could try his contract again in the summer. Despite this, the barcelonistas do not have the signing of a new defender as a prioritysince the economic situation of the club invites to pay attention at the time of entering the market of companies, and when having 4 assets in the position, the incorporation of a central grape to a background.
