Junior Firpo future, is becoming progressively far from Barcelona. Despite reports in Italy that the full-back was negotiating his exit to Milan yesterday, MD has heard that Barça is now seeking to get the full-back to the Premier League. There are two open fronts on which the Catalan club is making progress.
West Ham is one of the best-positioned teams, having just qualified for the Europa League. Because they will compete in European competition next season, David Moyes’ ‘hammers’ have more possibilities, which is an incentive for the footballer. Southampton has also expressed interest and is a possibility.
The Barcelona company insists that a sale to Junior and Milan is their priority; nevertheless, they only intend a transfer at this time, with a buy option after the next season.
The culé club is well aware that they must join as soon as possible to spend on future transfers and enhance the team. If money does not enter the box – or if participants do not engage in some form of barter – they will be unable to participate in subsequent activities.
As a result, the Milan option has been put on hold for the time being, and Barça has concentrated its efforts on the two English clubs that have been interested in Junior’s profile for weeks and are attempting to secure a move. A physically strong attacking winger who would be a good fit in his league.
For his part, the Blaugrana team is excited about the possibility of joining Milan, where he came close to joining in January. When the Barça defender became a parent, he prioritized the personal side above the professional, although Maldini had previously persuaded him. The Milan sports director hoped to take him away this time, and that discussions with Junior would be simple because everything was already in place in January. And the truth is, there is a very excellent contact between the environment of the Spanish soccer player of Dominican descent – it is controlled by the same agent as Brahim Daz, who has played for the Lombard club – and the environment of the Spanish soccer player of Dominican origin.
The Milan is in favor of an assignment, opting for a non-binding purchase option.
