RAC1: Homegrown player to replace Lucas Digne
- Barcelona plan to replace Lucas Digne with a La Masia starlet instead of signing a replacement
According to radio RAC1 reporter, Gerard Romero, if Lucas Digne leaves, Barcelona intend to replace him by promoting a homegrown youngster instead of signing a player from the outside.

Barcelona B left-back Marc Cucurella or Juvenil A defender Joan Miranda are the main candidates, as per an earlier report by Sport.
Lucas Digne has allegedly asked Barcelona to let him leave if an adequate offer arrives. Big European clubs have shown interest in his signature, including Bayern Munich and Juventus. Blaugrana are not against the move and would consider selling if an interested club provides them with an offer which exceeds €16m they paid PSG two years ago.
