Barcelona have been in touch with Antonio Aranda to signal him this summer time, in keeping with ESPN journalist Moises Llorens.
The Granada midfielder has a contract that runs until subsequent month (June 2021) with the membership and seeing as he’s unlikely to resume his contract anytime quickly, the Catalans are excited about signing the teenager.
The 20-year-old is a product of the Granada youth academy and is presently a starter for the reserve workforce, for whom he has amassed 40 appearances primarily as an attacking midfielder (however usually on the flanks).
Barcelona have already begun contract talks with the midfielder for a free deal in June, which is primarily what they occur to be counting on for reinforcements on bearing in mind their extraordinarily dire monetary state of affairs.
The Catalans appear to be beginning a sample of betting on kids from different groups within the league spurring from the success of Pedri, who’s a starter for the primary workforce at solely 18. An identical curiosity appears to be extending in direction of Valladolid’s ‘Chuki’ and Valenciennes’ Ismael Doukoure.
That stated, the midfield division for Barcelona is fairly stacked up. With younger weapons like Pedri and Frenkie De Jong making a reputation for themselves within the beginning XI already, and Riqui Puig, Ilaix Moriba, and doubtless Nico Gonzalez there to offer competitors subsequent season, there are different positions Barça ought to look to prioritise.
Quite the opposite, he’ll signal as a free agent and could possibly be bought on a revenue nearly instantly. For a membership in monetary misery, any enhance within the financial institution might do a world of excellent.
It’s possible that Aranda begins throughout the ranks of the B-team, seeing as he’s but to make his debut in La Liga for Granada. Both means, Barcelona are clearly getting ready to make various signings (most free of charge) to organize for the longer term below president Joan Laporta.
