Barcelona is aware that Jordi Alba, despite the good performance he has offered during all these years, is already facing the final stretch of his successful sports career, therefore, the sports management led by Mateu Alemany has to look for a substitute for guarantees to short term, having thought for it in the left-handed side of Valencia, Jose Luis Gaya.

The Spanish international and captain of Valencia since last season is a personal bet of an Alemany who knows the footballer from his time at Mestalla well, being last summer when the rumors began about a possible arrival at Camp Nou, in an operation in which even spoke of including Spanish Junior Firpo in the operation, who finally set course for Leeds United while Barcelona rejected the idea of ​​signing another left back, having to use the North American Sergino Dest in this year. said position.

The daily Sport ensures today that Barcelona believes it has all the numbers to be able to close the signing of Gaya next summer, taking advantage of the fact that the left-handed side ends his contract in 2023 and this would be the last opportunity for Valencia to get some money with his transfer, as long as the Che team and Gaya himself reach a renewal agreement that would completely frustrate the plans that Barcelona has to reinforce its squad for next season.
