Jordi Alba

Jordi Alba has reportedly become close to the Barcelona bench this season, prompting the club to target him in the upcoming transfer window. When healthy, the Spanish left-back is now behind the other Barca fullbacks, and he may be headed to Serie A in the coming months.

Even though he was linked with a move to Inter on transfer deadline day, Alba stayed at Barca. Whether or not he is enjoying his role as a substitute is unclear. His future could be determined by how well the Barca defense recovers from the World Cup in January.

As the schedule heats up, it could get more difficult for Barca, who are losing defenders left, right, and center to international duty. Juve needs any kind of talent intake at this point. Domestically, they’re struggling, and Alba’s still got some gas left in the tank. The next steps are now a matter of fine-tuning the details.

Career

Alba played in all four of Spain’s games that year, helping the team win the Mediterranean Games gold medal and the UEFA European Under-19 Championship the following year. Additionally, he participated in the 2009 FIFA U-20 World Cup team that competed in Egypt.

On September 30, 2011, Alba was called up to the full national squad for the first time. He played in the final two UEFA Euro 2012 qualifying games against the Czech Republic and Scotland.

On his debut on October 11 against Scotland in Alicante, his cut back from the left wing set up the opening goal, scored by his old Valencia colleague David Silva.  Thanks to his promising start, he was selected to play for Spain’s under-23 team in the 2012 Summer Olympics in London, and many believe he may eventually replace Joan Capdevila as the starting left defender for La Roja.

Alba was a member of Spain’s winning Euro 2012 squad that was led by Vicente del Bosque and participated in every match of the tournament. He set up the first goal in the 2-0 quarterfinal triumph over France by crossing the ball for Xabi Alonso to head in. He scored the second goal in the championship game against Italy by racing onto a feed from Xavi during a counterattack.
