Vicente Guaita first choice for FC Barcelona

Valencia CF goalkeeper Vicente Guaita is the first choice for FC Barcelona as the replacement for Victor Valdez. Guaita hasn't featured prominently this season and has changed places with Diego Alves, but is still considered one of the top goalkeepers in Spain and his youth is reason why many clubs, including Barcelona want him as he can still improve.

FC Barcelona sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta sees Vicente Guaita as the perfect replacement for Victor Valdez and the fact that he hasn't featured too much for Valencia CF makes him the perfect candidate as his transfer fee won't be too much and his salary is also on the low side, which going to FC Barcelona is likely to double, if not more.

Vicente Guaita has has that he is happy at Valencia CF, but that is likely nothing more than lip service as he hasn't featured much and his form has been dropping as result. Plus at FC Barcelona he is going to be the undisputed first choice and the big salary and the chance to win trophy's are all giant reasons to leave Valencia CF and I wouldn't blame him, he hasn't been first choice for a year and a half and his salary is very poor compared to even other Valencia CF players.
