It stipulated the option to make the jump, but Barça has not decided anything.
Kiko Femenía could be the fifth ascent of the subsidiary for the project 2012-2013. The contract signed in the summer end up in one of its clauses the possibility of being player of Barça's first team since the start of his second year in Barcelona. His environment looks forward to receiving the approval of the club has not done so far, and that can cover the preseason with the elderly, although aware that their continuity will depend on the decision of the coach, is Pep Guardiola or otherwise.
The sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta, so far has confirmed that Montoya, Bartra, Muniesa and Jonathan dos Santos have a secure position. Contract, and because they have received technical OK. Has not commented yet on Kiko Femenía, whether the former Hércules, which is in a situation similar to any of them, have the option to fight to have tab and back.
Last Julythe Barça and they agreed a transfer by Hercules 2 million plus 1.5 in variables by one of the first revelation of players and their agents to be included in the contract with Xavi, Messi, Iniesta and co. He signed for three more years and another optional clause of 20 million euros and which would be 30 for boarding the first team.
The idea was that Kiko Femenía was taking the elevator to adapt completely to be a subsidiary and occasional reinforcement for Pep. However, it has not happened as planned.
His first run in the B was marked by ups and downs in performance and the difficulty in assimilating all tactical concepts. He played sparingly and only scored a goal against Cartagena. Lately it does seem to have found their place in the B.
In this last stretch of the season, Eusebio Sacristán has given way. Against his former team, Hércules, played its sixth straight game as a starter. Pep Guardiola was quoted for the last league match of the Champions League against BATE Borisov but eventually could not enjoy the minutes as a substitute.
The club would like to take this investment of two 'kilos' and is turning to a final solution. If improvement in the remaining games to finish, will the preseason. Of not achieving the level, you could seek a transfer or leave the branch with the consent of the player himself.
Barça is the owner but is also subject to the terms signed. There are still a few months of competition and from the technical secretariat will follow up their evolution. (via MD)
