Barcelona eyeing Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella for defensive reinforcement
Barcelona has set their sights on bolstering their defensive ranks with the acquisition of Chelsea’s Marc Cucurella. Reports from Fichajes suggest that the Spanish giants are actively planning a summer move for the 25-year-old left-back.
Cucurella’s tenure at Stamford Bridge has failed to meet expectations, prompting Barcelona’s interest in bringing the Spanish defender back to his homeland.
Despite a lackluster spell with Chelsea, Cucurella showcased his quality during his time with Brighton. Barcelona sees him as a valuable addition to their defensive lineup, offering both defensive stability and attacking prowess down the flank.
While Chelsea may have paid a premium for Cucurella initially, Barcelona is unlikely to overspend for a player whose recent performances have faltered. Negotiations hinge on Chelsea’s willingness to be reasonable with their transfer demands.
A move to Barcelona presents Cucurella with the opportunity for a fresh start and regular playing time, which could reignite his career.
The 25-year-old aims to rediscover his form and confidence, potentially becoming a key asset for Barcelona in the upcoming season.
As talks progress, both clubs remain optimistic about reaching an agreement that satisfies all parties involved.
Barcelona’s pursuit of Cucurella signals their intent to strengthen their squad ahead of the new campaign, with the defender poised to potentially reignite his career at Camp Nou.
