Barcelona want to strengthen their B team this January and that is why they want Arnau Puigmal. He can play at full back or winger and he plays for Man Utd's under 23s. He joined them from Espanyol in 2017.

After staying in Segunda B for another season, Barca B ended up losing a lot of players. Therefore, the sporting director and his team are looking for reinforcements for January. 

This week, 'Sport' says that one of the players Barca are following closely is Arnau Puigmal, a versatile full back, midfielder and winger who is one of the main players for Man Utd U23s. 

Puigmal was born in January 2001 in Rubi, Barcelona, and he began his career in the Espanyol academy before moving to Old Trafford in summer 2017. He has come on lots, but has not been able to break into the first team.

The former Espanyol man shone for the Under 18s and he signed his first professional contract after six months. He did not take long after that to play for the U19s in the Youth League, the U21s and finally the under 23s where he has been since last term. 

Despite the fact he was selected for a Europa League match with Astana a year ago, Arnau Puigmal has not made his senior debut yet for Man Utd. His contract ends next summer. Barca want to take advantage and have him in their B team. 

Solano's injury left Barca B without right backs and coach Garcia Pimienta thinks Puigmal, a regular for Spain U19s, is a good options for them.
