Zapping World Eleven Cristiano Ronaldo: Record numbers

Barça is already looking towards the summer transfer window. With the winter transfer window barely closed, the Catalan club has set itself a few priorities for next summer. After the departure of Bellerin, Xavi hopes to recruit a pure right side to compete with Jules Koundé and thinks of finding his happiness in La Liga. According Fichajes.net, the Catalan coach would target Juan Foyth, defender of Villarreal who can also play in central defense. The world champion with Argentina would be one of Barça’s priority tracks even if the file looks complicated for the leader of La Liga.

A target of 30 million euros?

Under contract until June 2026 with Villarreal, Foyth will be difficult to dislodge according to the Spanish press. If the Argentinian international would be delighted to go to Barça, the Blaugranas would have to pay around 30 million euros to convince their counterparts in the yellow submarine to give up their 25-year-old side. This season, the former Tottenham player is part of Quique Setién’s team even though he missed the first La Liga games through injury (only 9 games played). His solid performances have in any case seduced Xavi who would be ready to take action at the end of this season. Case to follow.

To sum up

Xavi hopes to sign a right-back next summer. The Catalan coach would target Juan Foyth, defender of Villarreal who can evolve as well on the right as in central defense. The world champion with Argentina would be one of Barça’s priority tracks.
