Escape clause would have to renew in Valencia.
Gareth Bale is the first in the list in Barça's technical preferences to reinforce the left, but the club azulgrana has hedged its bets with Jordi Alba.
The side of Valencia is even aware of this and so it has already advanced more than renew with the team 'che', provided that includes an escape clause at a fixed price that allows you to sign for Barça.
Alba, a former canterano at La Masia, is prepared to wait that time among other reasons because it is at home in Mestalla and does not care to continue as 'che' with a substantial improvement contract if Barça was done with Bale, who by his enormous potential is greater consideration in the transfer market than a single side, something like a Dani Alves opposite field.
The economic effort involving the operation 'left side' determine its name. If Bale, number one on the list, he will be the star signing of Barça 2012-2013.
If the Welsh international goal becomes inaccessible, then the whole operation would be activated Jordi Alba with this renewal with Valencia CF until June 2016 that would always leave the door open to its affordable wholesale FC Barcelona. (via MD)
