Ortolà, transfer target for Barça B

Ortolà, transfer target for Barça B

It’s not only FC Barcelona’s first team that is looking for a new goalkeeper. According to Mundo Deportivo, the number one transfer target for FC Barcelona B next summer is Villarreal B goalkeeper Adrián Ortolà (19).

The era of Oier Olazabal (23) is coming to an end after one season with Guardiola, three with Luis Enrique and two with Eusebio.

If we are to believe Mundo Deportivo, FC Barcelona has scouted the best young goalkeepers Spain has to offer for the past two years in Kepa and Remiro from Athletic Bilbao, Mariño from Villarreal, and Cuesta from Sevilla. The preferred candidate would be the earlier mentioned Ortolà.

Ortolà has been part of the Spanish youth squads on numerous occasions, at under 17 and under 19 levels.

Although he is not the tallest of goalkeepers (1.82m) people have compared him to Manchester United goalie David De Gea because of their similar style in both the positive and negative aspects of their game.

Fun fact, Ortolà’s idol is our very own Victor Valdés.
