BarcelonaEspanyol is very clear about the player who must remedy the defensive problems with which the season has started: César Montes, from Monterrey. This 25-year-old centre-back maintains his desire to go to Europe and is waiting for a call from the white-and-blue club to be able to leave Mexico and fulfill his dream of playing in Europe. Espanyol, who tried unsuccessfully to sign him in the last few days of the summer transfer window, is his preferred option. The advice of one of his closest teammates and national team, former Spanish player Héctor Moreno, the fact that his brother is playing on loan at Real Avilés and being able to live in Barcelona are some of the enticements that make him opt for white-and-blue project. Espanyol, however, knows that it cannot fall asleep, as several European clubs have inquired about him in recent weeks.
