Mercato: A delegation from Barça to Chelsea

Barça’s director of football and technical secretary traveled again, this time to London.

According to Sportthey were in the English capital to discuss several different options with Chelsea.

The first of these is the one that interests FC Barcelona the most. Defender Cesar Azpilicueta has been the subject of constant speculation since the start of the year. Experienced, versatile and a leader, FC Barcelona would be keen to bring him to Camp Nou. Recently, his contract was extended by Chelsea, but he would have the option of leaving for a reasonable price.

The second player on the agenda is of a similar profile. FC Barcelona have been linked with Celta Vigo left-back Javi Galan, but left-back Marcos Alonso would also represent an experienced competition option for Jordi Alba. With only Sergino Dest as an option to fill that first-team position, Alba was forced to play the vast majority of games once again.

The third option would have a much bigger impact on Barcelona’s style and squad construction. It is said that Barcelona want to bring in a big name as number nine for next season and Romelu Lukaku will be on the way this summer. Barcelona are unlikely to be able to afford anything like the £97.5m Chelsea bought last summer, but he could be an alternative on loan if Barcelona fail to secure Robert Lewandowski.
