Barcelona defender Marc Bartra is not getting chances under Luis Enrique. He has become the fifth choice central defender in the squad and he’s only used fleetingly or in matches of little importance.
The player is aware of the situation, but for the moment is keeping quiet and working hard. Bartra is disappointed, but after being stopped from leaving in January, is going to give his all until the end of the season. It will be then that he will decide if he stays or if he seeks an exit. His agents, among them Carles Puyol, recommend that he stays calm and does not rush into any decisions. However, he’s aware that his lack of action could affect his chances with the Spanish national side - above all ahead of this summer’s European Championships.
Monitoring this situation, Manchester United have shown an interest in signing him in the summer. According to reports in Italy, the Premier League side are ready to pay 12 million euros for the 25-year-old, whose Camp Nou contract runs until 2017. That’s to say that after this season he has just one year left with Barça, but it doesn’t seem likely he will fulfil that year if things don’t change soon.
