[Barça B] Athletic Like to goalkeeper Oier

The goalkeeper of B, which is growing every year, could cut a hypothetical operation.

Oier Olazabal, goalkeeper of Barça B, could be key if the Athletic Club aviniera to negotiate the signing of Javi Martinez this summer. Although today Gorka Iraizoz life insurance is the goal rojiblanca, Oier incorporating key would always be in the future. Since joining La Masia at 17 from Real Unión de Irún B and express recommendation of Juan Carlos Unzué, Oier has grown season after season. "It's like Zubizarreta for their looks, but different from Andoni to play in football today. Moreover, it conveys nervousness and likes to be authoritarian," he said of Unzué.

Oier debuted with the first team on January 2, 2008, at the turn of the sixteenth Cup against Alcoyano and has become the third first team goalkeeper for Guardiola.

Despite the stiff competition it has in the subsidiary, Miño-now injured, and Masip, Oier has grown into the undisputed starter for Eusebio. The Navarre, who had just contract this summer, has recently renewed its relationship with Barça until June 2015. Even so, and if the Athletic agreed to incorporate in the operation of Javi Martínez, the club azulgrana could reconsider what to do with Oier, which today has a great future at Barça since José Manuel Pinto, a 36-year - in principle only stay one more season at the club azulgrana.

From Barça technical secretary is clear that there are two ways to strengthen the position of pivote. Either they bet on a football contrast, the level of Javi Martínez, who has the bonus of versatility, since it can act both as a central pivot of pulling the ball played from behind, or by Keita profile, which predominates physical tone and placement on the technique.

In the first case, the operation would be very costly for the institution. Accordingly, and unless there is an exit that left many revenue into the club azulgrana, Andoni Zubizarreta, Barça technical director already made clear in a few weeks ago RAC1 that this summer would be little money to invest. Large operations were undertaken last summer, when the club spent 60 million to gain the services of Cesc Fàbregas and Alexis Sánchez. (via MD)
