There has been a clear decline in the defensive performances being put in by FC Barcelona this season, which has been all the more visible when seen against the backdrop of the club’s defensive play last term.

The fullback Alejandro Balde is having a season to forget in particular, as he struggled to shine since its start, and is now out with an injury till the end of the season.

Keeping in view his poor form and the possible impacts of injury, the Catalans might be open to parting ways with him, and the latest news coming out from the club indicates that Barcelona might already be looking for a replacement for him.

In this aspect, Jijantes FC reports that the Barcelona Sporting Director, Deco, met with the representatives of the Bayern Munich fullback, Alphonso Davies in Barcelona.

The Canadian fullback’s contract is going to end in 2025, and he is increasingly being linked with a move away from the Bavarian club. FC Barcelona can be an interesting option for him if these links develop further in the future, but for now, such a move looks increasingly difficult.

One reason for this difficulty is the interest from other big European clubs in the defender. Barcelona’s traditional rivals, Real Madrid, have also been closely linked with the defender in the past, and in fact, the report by Jijantes also indicates that Davies’ agent was also in Madrid, and visited Barcelona after having first visited the Spanish capital.

While both the clubs have a similar appeal for footballers around the world, one cannot argue against the significantly greater economic might of the Merengues.

Barcelona have been going through a financial crisis for the last few years, and will find it extremely hard to compete against other richer European sides. However, nothing is certain for now, and it remains to be seen which club Davies will play for in the coming season.
