Fourth in Liga, seven points behind Real Madrid, leader, FC Barcelona will try to make up for it during the second half of the season. To do this, the Catalan leaders intend to take advantage of the winter transfer window to make some adjustments. So, if Vitor Roque should arrive in the coming hours near Barcelona, ​​the Culers have already targeted a new priority track for this winter. With Gavi’s injury and the difficulties encountered by Xavi in ​​the midfield, Aleix Garcia (26 years old) would thus be targeted as reported Sport.

Impressive in the colors of Girona, surprising second in the Spanish championship, the Spanish midfielder, author of 3 goals and 4 assists in 18 matches in all competitions, has never hidden his intention to join Barça. During a recent interview with Movistar+, the native of Ulldecona had, in fact, the clumsiness of declaring his love for the Catalan rival. Enough to sow discord in the Blanquivermells locker room and greatly annoy the supporters. Questioned about this controversial outing, his trainer, Michel, quickly tried to defuse the bomb thrown by his protégé.

Barça wants to plunder the competition!

“Aleix Garcia made one mistake and that’s it. I remember a lot of things when I was playing in the lower categories at Rayo Vallecano, games at Vallecas against Madrid and there were more people celebrating Madrid’s goals than Rayo’s. I hope that in Girona people are just Girona fans, that’s my message to the fans. We need people who are 100% Girona”, confided the Spanish technician. However, these comments did not calm the rumor and the Blaugranas are now looking for a formula to afford the 1m73 right-hander.

Appreciated by Xavi, Aleix Garcia has a release clause estimated at 20 million euros, which leaves little room for maneuver for Barça, who have already spent 30 million euros. From then on, Oriol Romeu, in difficulty with the FCB and tracked by Getafe, or Pablo Torre could serve as a bargaining chip to lower the rating. The Spanish daily specifies, in this regard, that the option of Pablo Torre seems more complicated because the Cantabrian midfielder is loaned to Girona, but without any purchase option and that the Culers are still banking on him for the future.
