It has been suggested that Hafinha, 26, who has struggled since joining Barcelona, could be on the move. Chelsea and Newcastle are among the clubs interested in Hafinha, who faces stiff competition for a starting spot.
Spanish media outlet ‘Sport’ reported on March 13 (KST), “Barcelona have been performing below expectations due to injuries to some players. There are internal discussions about their futures.” “One of the targets is Hapinha. His future will be decided next summer, as he is a player who can fetch a significant transfer fee in the transfer market.”
New faces have been impressing for Barcelona this season. Fermín López (20) has burst onto the scene in the center of the park, while Ramin Yamal (16) has been a revelation on the flanks. The arrival of younger players has pushed the older ones out of the way. Hafinha has felt the brunt of the impact, and while he fulfilled his dream of breaking into the big club last season in a Barcelona shirt, that dream is in danger of being short-lived.
Last season, Hapinha earned a spot on the right flank with 10 goals and 12 assists in 50 games across all competitions. This season, however, he has just two goals and three assists in 11 games. His 36.4 minutes per game has reduced him to a mediocre backup. Yamal’s development and his own injuries have faded into the background. 아톰카지노 도메인
Hafinha received offers from Newcastle and Saudi Arabian clubs last summer. He turned them down, opting to stay at Barcelona and reunite with coach Xavi Hernandez (43, Spain). He has fully integrated into the team and was expected to excel, but his contribution to the team has been minimal.
Barcelona will now mull over his future. According to Sport, “Barcelona will evaluate offers this summer. Newcastle are still interested and Chelsea have him on their list. In the case of Chelsea, they tried to sign Hapinha, but the player worked hard to come to Barcelona.”
Both Newcastle and Chelsea are in need of a left-footed winger who can play down the right flank. Prior to his move to Barcelona, Hapinha was an ace for Leeds United, where he excelled in the Premier League. The fact that he doesn’t need to adapt to the league is also an advantage. With two of the deepest pockets in the Premier League, Barcelona can afford to spend, even if they demand a significant transfer fee.
However, it’s unlikely that the player will seek a move. He loves his life at Barcelona and doesn’t want to hear about a move. Separately, there is talk that Barcelona could sell some players next summer to help solve their financial problems.
