Guardiola wants two players from Barcelona in exchange for Ferran Torres

Talks between Barcelona and Manchester City for a Ferran Torres deal are progressing at a good pace. Which is that Pep Guardiola wants to take advantage of the process to get the services of a player who does not seem to be in Xavi Hernandez’s plans, so the process has very good expectations that it will be able to happen.

On the other hand, Barcelona wants to put Philippe Coutinho wherever he is. The Brazilian, who has a very bad reputation in the dressing room, will not be at the Camp Nou next season, so FC Barcelona is looking for a way out. Pep Guardiola does not take lightly to welcome him, as he believes that Coutinho will return to shine in the Premier League.

In exchange for taking on Coutinho’s salary, which is a very high figure, Manchester City put on the table the name of another footballer, Sergino Dest, who seems to have very few chances with Xavi Hernandez.

The Barcelona coach, who included Dani Alves to occupy the right-back position, continues to test the players, after the fiasco in Villarreal’s match with Eric Garcia.

On the other hand, Guardiola was willing to sign Dest when the American began to shine for Ajax, although Barcelona were faster on that occasion and ended up signing him. Now, capitalizing on FC Barcelona’s interest in Ferran Torres and Sterling, the coach has put Dest’s name on the table, a transfer Barcelona will be willing to accept in an exchange.

What seems completely unlikely is that such a move can take place in this winter market, as Barcelona has no alternative to Dest. The club wants to prioritize a process involving Ferran Torres and Coutinho, although it is not possible to agree an exit from the American full-back without first signing a replacement. Which is that Dest’s departure will make Dani Alves the team’s only right-back, with Sergi Roberto and Mengueza as substitutes.

Under the circumstances, it seems unlikely that Manchester City will be able to agree to part with Ferran Torres, despite the fact that Barcelona wants to continue searching for possible alternatives to seal off the arrival of the former Valencia player in the upcoming winter market.
