According to ‘Mundo Deportivo’, Ezequiel Garay is in the race to take over from Gerard Piqué, who will be out due to injury for quite some time.
Barça suffers a plague of injuries. After the confirmation of the three-month absence of Ansu Fati, Piqué and Sergi Roberto were the next to be injured on the field.
All eyes are now on Piqué, the ‘3’ Barça player suffered a serious ligament sprain. The versatile footballer will be out for at least four months while he recovers.
The injury that has caused the most impact has been that of Piqué. However, the club is already considering a number of options to fill the defensive position.
The priority remains Eric Garcia, but Garay’s name has come to the fore recently. The veteran defender is left without a team after ending his contract with Valencia and is a more than viable option.
That is what ‘Mundo Deportivo’ points out, which ensures that the Argentine is the most prestigious center-back in the market. The only bad thing is that Rosarino is 34 years old, although his experience can help a lot.
The last time Garay played a game was on February 1, when Valencia faced Celta at the Mestalla. It barely lasted 43 minutes as he tore the cruciate ligament in his right knee and said goodbye to the season.
The defender is now fully recovered and a call from Barcelona could get him out of the strike. However, Koeman can still change his mind. Mingueza, CBl of Barça B, debuted with the first team in the Champions League and played a great game.
