Azpilicueta replacement spotted and Barcelona will spare no force getting him.
It was reported today that Barcelona pursuit of Azplicueta has been cut short but as if that was not enough a lot of other prospects have fallen off too and this has left Barcelona fans devastated as they could not land Azplicueta.
This is not until this evening and the replacement for Azplicueta was spotted and this will be a very good person to fill in the space meant for Azpli to fill in before he bailed out on Barcelona in the last minute.
According to SPORT, Barcelona have identified Borussia Dortmund right-back Thomas Meunier as an alternative for Azpilicueta this summer.
Although the Belgian international was on the radars of Barça during the January transfer window, with advisor Jordi Cruyff holding talks with him to explain the project at the club. However, Dortmund ended up blocking the move as they did not have enough time to acquire a replacement.
The 30-year-old still has two years left on his contract which might prompt Dortmund to demand a sizeable fee for his services. However, Barcelona are likely to press ahead with his pursuit as Sergino Dest is no longer seen as a viable option and has been put up for sale.
