Jordi Alba is the giant’s first choice

FC Barcelona is eager to get rid of Jordi Alba, and Juventus shows interest in him, reports Sport. It is possible that the parties will soon sit down to talk about the transfer of the Spaniard.

Jordi Alba hasn’t been Xavi’s first pick for a while. It seems that the 33-year-old does not quite fit the philosophy of the coach’s game, and besides, he is losing the rivalry with the talented Alejandro Balde and the experienced Marcos Alonso, brought in from Chelsea in the summer.

Therefore, in August, there was talk of a potential departure of this player. His salary is a heavy burden on the club’s budget, given that he is only sporadic.

A few weeks ago, Inter Milan asked for his services as part of a temporary transfer. Ultimately, however, the transaction did not take place, because the player himself vetoed.

In winter, however, it may be different and, according to the information provided by “Sport”, the real direction is still a move to the Italian top league, but this time it is Juventus.

The giant from the Apennine Peninsula is to go for Alba in winter. There is a definitive transfer or a loan with the option to buy. Talks on this matter should start soon.

In Turin, they have been looking for someone to strengthen the left flank for some time, and an experienced Spaniard is an interesting move.

Jordi Alba went to Camp Nou from Valencia in summer 2012 for EUR 14 million. In the current season, he has played a total of four games.
