Junior Firpo has struggled to make an impact since his €18m transfer from Real Betis last summer. Although he was signed as a long-term successor for Jordi-Alba, who remains the first-choice at Camp Nou.
Despite these unfavourable circumstances, it’s unlikely Barcelona will want to sell Firpo. The only thing that can change is the financial turmoil they’re in, which reportedly has already led them to place six unnamed players up for sale.
Although Firpo may instead on go out on loan to continue his development with regular football. Therefore, Nicolas Tagliafico could fill in for him as Alba’s back-up at Camp Nou.
