Mateu Alemany has met with the player's agent in Barcelona.
Barça are interested in signing Blues player Jorginho, whose contract runs out at the end of the season. After Azpilicueta (who did not sign), Christensen and Marcos Alonso, Barça are once again targeting the London club for a player who is out of contract.
The player's agent met Mateu Alemany and discussed Barça's plans to reinforce the pivot position. Jorginho is of great interest because of his tactical, physical, technical and Champions League experience.
The player fulfils all the requirements to occupy a fundamental position in Xavi Hernandez's game.
At this meeting, it was agreed, in principle, that the player would receive a firm proposal to be able to sign in January as a new Barcelona player for the 2023/24 season.
Barça intend to quickly deal with all the steps to sign him, pending the finalisation of the agreement.
They could take advantage of the fact that La Liga's fair play regulations are more lenient in the winter window than in the summer. The rule is 1x1 in the winter and 4x1 in the summer.
