Joan Laporta Talks About The Future Of Frankie De Jong, Alonso, Braithwaite And Messi

As stated by the colleagues at Mundo Deportivo, Joan Laporta, president of FC Barcelona, ​​has taken the floor. The reason is obvious: the celebration of the Joan Gamper Trophy, a friendly tournament that has resulted in a Barça feast against Pumas. A duel that, in addition, has served as a tribute to Dani Alves (39 years old).

Laporta has taken advantage of the occasion to review the current situation of the cast of Xavi Hernández, without neglecting that of Frenkie de Jong (25 years old). The Premier League continues to press for the midfielder, while he has also assessed the dismissals before the start of the season and the possibility of further strengthening the squad.

These are the answers of Joan Laporta

Decisive line of the market: "There are players who will have to leave and we are working on it. And there will be some more registrations (Marcos Alonso). This week, what we hope is to register the signed players, the registry."

Frenkie de Jong: "He is a Barcelona player, of great quality and we want him to stay. With him and his teammates, we have a very powerful midfield. He has offers, but we want him to stay and he wants to stay".

Martin Brathwaite and Samuel Umtiti: "They have understood that the best thing is to go play for another team. Their contracts have always been respected, but the time has come when they have to take a step forward. This week, both of them must be fixed".

Lionel Messi "I'm not going to talk about Messi anymore because he's a PSG player. I'll just say that we have a moral debt with him and talking about it could go against our aspirations. The relationship with his family? It's good."

Joan Gamper Trophy: "There are a lot of fans that have come, we have made a great effort to have a competitive squad and we have achieved it, although we have not finished yet. We have high expectations."
