FOOTBALL – Barcelona Mercato: Portuguese hopeful set to leave the club?
With the arrival of Joan Laporta as president, FC Barcelona is preparing for a major overhaul of its squad in the summer mercato. Elected on the promise of putting the Catalan club back on the roof of Europe, the president of the Spanish club wants to make the Blaugrana team competitive. The attack is his main concern, and it is in this perspective that Barça is looking to obtain the signature of Sergio Aguero or Memphis Depay. Main consequence, some players could be asked to leave the club in order to save money.
Trincão towards a departure of FC Barcelona?
Francisco Trincão should pay this new direction of the club. The Portuguese winger has had a difficult first season with Barcelona. With only 2 starts in La Liga this season, the native of Viana do Castelo is struggling to impose himself in the eyes of his coach Ronald Koeman. And it could well be that the former SC Braga player is invited to leave this summer. According to the newspaper AS, Joan Laporta would consider loaning the Portuguese hopeful next season.
Barred by Ousmane Dembele or Antoine Griezmann, the return of Ansu Fati after a long absence condemns the hopes of playing time of the young player. Aware of his immense talent, the management of the Catalan club favors a loan of its striker with a salary fully paid by the host club.
Todibo definitely wants to leave!
In addition to the case of Francisco Trincão, the president of FC Barcelona will have to settle the case of Jean Clair Todibo. The latter, on loan at Nice, has clearly shown his willingness to stay with the club. “I want to stay, I claim it. But we must ask the leaders. Personally I am focused on the end of the season,” he told our colleagues of France Bleu Azur.
One thing is certain, it is that Joan Laporta will not miss working this summer.
