Xavi does not throw in the towel for a right side

Xavi Hernández has not yet ruled out signing a right-back. However, the circumstances of the market and the needs of the team have made him prioritize the positions to be strengthened. In this sense, the first and most urgent is being that of the defensive pivot, after the departure of Sergio Busquets, with Marcelo Brozóvic as a great bet, after that of an attacking midfielder, which has been closed with the landing of Ilkay Gundoganand that of a center forward who relieves Lewandowski, materialized with the arrival of the Brazilian Victor Roque.

The next reinforcement on the list was a left winger, especially since the club wanted to do without Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati, both for sporting and economic reasons. However, if they don’t leave or only one ends up leaving, the needs of the team would end up changing. In this case, the arrival of the Belgian Yannick Carrasco would be completely ruled out, and only the continuity of the youth squad Ezra Abde would be contemplated, as long as a succulent offer does not arrive at the club’s offices.

As AS has learned, right now the sports management would rule out doing any more operations in attack, and would open the doors to look for a ‘low cost’ reinforcement in defence, and more specifically on the right side. In this sense, The possibility of trying again the transfer of the Portuguese Joao Cancelo would be well received by the technicians, and more after the conformation of Pep Guardiola himself that City will not put any impediment to his departure, and even less to the Blaugrana team. It would be a one-year loan with no purchase option. A cheaper alternative is also on the Blaugrana agenda, according to ‘Mundo Deportivo’, in the figure of Valladolid right-back, Iván Fresneda, who has already had contacts with Mateu Alemany in recent days. In any case, Borussia Dortmund seems to have been bidding hard for him lately, offering 15 million to the Pucelano club.

There is no doubt who would benefit most from the arrival of a reinforcement on the right side would be the Frenchman Jules Koundé, who this year has been forced to play as a right back, despite not being his natural position. Although, according to the results, the international has resolved the ballot with a high note. But Koundé seems that he is not in the business of continuing to play as a winger, at least on a regular basis, and this is how the coach himself was made to see it personally in a meeting that they held with a month to go before the end of the season.
