Foyth, the one targeted by Barcelona

The possibility of Juan Foyth becoming a Barcelona player is becoming more and more concrete, which caused the uneasiness of the Villarreal coach, Unai Emery. Faced with the possibility of losing the Argentine defender with the championship started, the Spanish coach was very concerned, although he clarified that the player is happy at the club and assured that he gave him security about his permanence.

“It’s not affecting, but it doesn’t make sense that the market doesn’t close at the start of the championship,” Emery complained. “I don’t understand that it is being played and the market is not closed. Foyth has discomfort, but it is true that it can affect us that exit movements can be made. It would affect us that an unexpected clause payment is executed or that the player thinks that he can leave for an offer that interests him,” said the former coach of Paris Saint-Germain and Arsenal.

“We are aware of the market and what can happen, there are some cases that we expected and others that we did not. Juan Foyth is very happy here, he is grateful and he gives me peace of mind. I have spoken with him about the game and no more. We know what he wants Villarreal, we know that the player is calm and we no longer know about Barcelona”, completed the coach about the possibility of transferring the defender to the Catalan club.

In the last few hours, the Spanish press published that Barcelona’s objective is to incorporate the former Estudiantes defender and, in this sense, it transpired that Foyth’s representative, Claudio Curti, met with Mateu Alemany, Barcelona’s football director, to negotiate the conditions of the eventual contract. However, Villarreal is not willing to loan the player out at this point in the season, so his departure would only be possible if the Catalan club pays his termination clause, which is 42 million euros. Foyth, who in these months aspires to earn a place on Lionel Scaloni’s list for the Qatar World Cup, has a contract with the Yellow Submarine until June 2026.

Meanwhile, regarding the possible arrival of Uruguayan striker Edinson Cavani, Emery made it clear that it is a name of interest, but he did not consider it a priority. “It is a name that has been there, but we are going to talk and analyze how we will be facing this start and what we need. It is a strange and very intense league of games and demands. All of this must be analyzed and prevented, that is why we must adjust it and we are going to work to see what solution we take. With the exits that there are, we are going to see the possibilities that we have”, expressed the Spanish coach.
