Barca have gotten to work to make a profound change in their squad, a change that involves the immediate departure of seven players. The newspaper 'AS' has already put a name and surname to them: Arthur, Junior, Rakitic, Braithwaite, Umtiti, Arturo Vidal and Dembélé.
The future of Junior Firpo could pass through Italy, although not precisely through Inter as had been discussed recently. According to 'Sport Mediaset', Antonio Conte could have discarded the FC Barcelona defender. Napoli, says 'Il Mattino', would be interested in making room for the former Betis player.
'Mundo Deportivo' informs that, if Junior Firpo ends up being part of 'Operation Lautaro' and signs for Inter, he would earn more than double what he is on at Barcelona. It is one of the reasons why the defender has accepted the situation.
In the heat of the season and with the transfer window open, Barcelona have begun to think about possible exits. Junior Firpo could be the next one: Inter Milan have reportedly accepted Barcelona's offer to add him in the signing for Lautaro Martinez.
Barcelona resumed training after the Espanyol match. In the session, of recovery for the starting players, Frenkie de Jong and Junior Firpo participated for a spell, who could return to the squad against Valladolid.
Barcelona are on yellow alert, that hackneyed expression used in football journalism to warn that they have players one yellow away from a ban. Messi, Suárez, Piqué, Arturo Vidal, Braithwaite, Junior, and Rakitic are in that situation.
Inter Milan are interested in signing Junior ahead of 2020-21. But the player's future doesn't matter in the slightest to him at the moment: he is focussed on helping Barca in this final stretch of La Liga.
