The Navarrese footballer, who last summer could not be signed by the Catalan team, has lost weight at Chelsea FC
FC Barcelona plans to reactivate the arrival of Azpilicueta for next summer. Now it will no longer be necessary to even pay, since Chelsea will not resist his departure. However, the Barcelona group must undertake certain movements before. That’s where Betis comes in.
Azpilicueta was almost signed by FC Barcelona last summer. However, Tebas halted the operation citing problems derived from fair play. Some problems that were later resolved, but the defender had already committed to Chelsea.
Azpilicueta within shot of FC Barcelona
Now the situation is completely different. Because Azpilicueta has lost prominence at Chelsea. He is no longer a regular starter and the English team will not put obstacles to his departure. FC Barcelona intends to sign Azpilicueta at zero costwith some kind of bonus in concept of variables, but without much more outlay.
It seems that with the renewal of Sergi Roberto and the arrival of Azpilicueta, Koundé will count more as a centre-back. Together with Araújo, Christensen and Marcos Alonso. Jordi Alba will continue to be Balde’s substitute, if he decides to continue. Otherwise, Marcos Alonso to the side and another center-back would be signed.
Betis could lend a hand
In that planning there are two footballers who do not enter. On the one hand Eric Garcia, It looks very good to come out next summer. The other is a Sergiño Dest that he will not continue in Milan and that he has a contract. Both players could go out on loan in search of minutes and a possible revaluation.
Betis is looking for a central defender, since Víctor Ruiz’s contract is ending and it will not be renewed. But also lateral, since the signing of Bellerín is getting complicated. The assignments of Eric García and Sergiño Dest would be very well received by Manuel Pellegrini. We will have to wait for movements.
