MD: Betis request cash plus player for Barca's prioritized Firpo
- Betis wish to get €25m and Juan Miranda for the left-back.
- Barcelona would like to include a buy-back option in case Miranda leaves.
- Junior Firpo is Barca's current transfer priority.
The Catalan club will need to pay at least €25m for the 22-year-old and include Barca's promising starlet Juan Miranda in the deal.
However, Barcelona plan to instill a buy-back clause if Miranda leaves the club on loan.
As for Firpo, it all points to the fact that Barcelona are in real need of a player like the Spaniard. The latest reports rule out the possibility of buying other full-backs, such as Alaba and Roussillon. Therefore, Barca will put an effort to sign the La Liga adapted player who is, moreover, the recent European Champion with La Roja.
What concerns Miranda, he will not be the part of Barca's squad for the preseason tour in Japan due to his commitments at EURO U-19 where Spain achieved semifinals.
