Xavi Hernandez wants to strengthen several positions within the FC Barcelona next summer, one of them and who runs the fastest is the left-back since Jordi Alba He needs a man who gives him rest and who can also compete head-to-head with him. For several weeks many names have been sounding to reinforce the Barça left lane but it seems that the sports management has finally decided on one, Alexander Grimaldocurrent player of benfica.
According to the Portuguese journalist Peter Almeida, the culé team would be prepared to pay a figure between 20 and 25 million euros to take over the services of Grimaldo in the next transfer market. The Valencian winger is one of the most reliable options that the Catalan team manages given his extremely high performance in Portugal and they are completely convinced that he would fit in perfectly under the command of Xavi Hernández given that he is a player with a lot of defensive sacrifice, but also with a lot of offensive projection, very similar to Jordi Alba.

Alexander Grimaldo He has one more year of contract with Benfica and we are facing one of the best opportunities to get his services without FC Barcelona having to pay an abusive price for him given that the Lisbon club will not be able to demand much more money for him since I would risk losing it for free next summer. For his part, the Valencian has always been flattered by the Blaugrana interest and would be willing to return to defend the culé shirt, a club to which he belonged for eight seasons.
