Barcelona is still carrying out a series of maneuvers in the transfer market to get players who can strengthen the squad next season. The latest news, the Spanish League giants are planning to throw three players to get the players they need. El Mundo Deportivo revealed, that Barcelona management threw an offer to the Valencia camp to choose players.
This is related to Barcelona`s desire to bring in two Valencia heroes, namely Carlos Soler and Jose Luis Gaya. These two names have become an important part of Valencia’s charming journey this season. Even though they are in 11th position in the 2021/2022 Spanish League standings, they are runners up in the Copa del Rey. What can you do? Well, the composition of Valencia’s latest players provokes the attention of Barcelona’s management.
Blaugrana coach Xavi Hernandez asked the club’s top brass to persuade Valencia to release Soler and Luis Gaya. Several Spanish media said this week there was a meeting between Barcelona President Joan Laporta and Valencia boss Anil Mercy.
The conversation between the two determines whether the player exchange process takes place. For Xavi Hernandez, the presence of Carlos Soler and Jose Luis Gaya can enhance the left-back and midfield. These two players have proven to be able to play well in their position.
At the first meeting, Barcelona was happy to pay in cash. But when Barcelona saw Valencia drop the € 70 million price tag, they withdrew regularly. To please Xavi Hernandez, El Barca devised a tactic to not lose the player they wanted. Indeed, after the discussion process, Valencia was thrown an offer to choose a player if the payment process did not use fresh funds.
El Mundo Deportivo was dismissed and Valencia Camp was happy with the plan. At least if Sorrel and Luis Gaya fly to Camp Nou, they have sent three names that must be theirs.
The three Barcelona players who were asked by Valencia were Martin Braithwaite, Sergio Dest, and Riqui Puig. If all goes well, the deal is very attractive, especially if Dest and Puig go to the Mestalla. However, several reasons make Xavi likely to release Dest.
One thing is for sure, the 21 year old player is not too impressive in the eyes of Xavi. Therefore, he deserves to leave Camp Nou. Braithwaite owns a variety of things. The bomber can leave because Barcelona does not want to cure the player who continues to be injured. Most recently, about Puig, it turned out that he was able to leave because he was on the bench.
