Marca says Getafe have made the youngster their No1 target for the winter market.

Alena will leave Barca in the New Year after recognising he has little chance of first team football this season under coach Ernesto Valverde.

Getafe will face stiff competition for his signature, with Celta Vigo and Tottenham also keen.

But the presence of former Barca B teammate Marc Cucurella could swing the deal in Getafe's favour. The pair are great friends from their time together at La Masia.

Firpo insists he was always confident his playing chance would arrive.

"I'm not worried about my situation, I've not been here long and I think everyone needs time to adapt," said Firpo. "All players are selfish and of course I'd like to play more. It was hard not to play against Levante but in the end I have to respect the decision of the coach.

"We'd all like regular games but when I came I knew what I was in for. I don't like not being in the squad but I understand that the full-back who doesn't play sits in the stands. I'll keep working and I'm ready."

The Argentine star scored a hat-trick in the Blaugrana's 4-1 win over Celta Vigo on Saturday, including two goals from freekicks.

"We have a very big advantage, he's the best in the world and also the best freekick taker in the world," Busquets told Movistar about Messi.

"He's been improving bit by bit and it was difficult.

"Having him is a very big advantage."

Busquets scored a rare goal to round off Barcelona's victory at the Camp Nou as they regained top spot in LaLiga Santander.

"I hadn't scored in a while, although that's normal," he said.

"The important thing was that the team won. We were struggling in LaLiga Santander and the Champions League and it was important to stay top and go into the international break with calmness."

The Barcelona captain converted a penalty before netting two sumptuous freekicks to condemn Celta to a 4-1 defeat at the Camp Nou.

"With Leo, anything is possible," Valverde said about his forward.

"[Taking freekicks] is something that he's mastered to perfection.

"Because of this, the opponent can't commit fouls on the edge of their own box. If they do, we try to take advantage.

"Messi, apart from scoring goals, has a commitment to the game."

<![CDATA[​Denis Suarez opens up on Arsenal injury nightmare]]> <p>Former Arsenal star Denis Suarez has admitted that he was disappointed at how his time at the club panned out.<br></p><p>The midfielder joined the club in January 2019, with a view to getting first team game time that he could not achieve with Barcelona.</p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/denis-suarez-opens-up-on-arsenal-injury-nightmare-4303478?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BCelta%2BVigo'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Former Arsenal star Denis Suarez has admitted that he was disappointed at how his time at the club panned out.

The midfielder joined the club in January 2019, with a view to getting first team game time that he could not achieve with Barcelona.

However, he was injured for much of those six months, and only played six games for the club.

Suarez is now at Celta Vigo after a permanent transfer away from Barca.

"You never know what can happen in the future [regarding a move back to the Premier League]. I went to Arsenal with great hopes," the 25-year-old told Goal.com.

"I made my debut against Manchester City but in our first away game I got injured. I thought I had ruptured my adductor because I could barely put weight on the leg or move it.

"The scan showed it was not ruptured, but rather that I had a huge build-up of fluid on my pelvic bone and from there I could not take a single step without feeling pain.

"I carried on training because I didn't want to stop in my second week after arriving but I couldn't do it because I was never at 100 per cent, not even 50. I couldn't even take a shot at goal."

<![CDATA[LALIGA RECAP: Levante shock; Escriba sacked; Ramos Real Madrid record]]> <p>Here are ten of the top stories from LaLiga Santander, from fine margins at the top of the table to Sergio Ramos and Luis Surez's latest records.</p><p><br></p><a href='https://www.tribalfootball.com/articles/laliga-recap-levante-shock-escriba-sacked-ramos-real-madrid-record-4303231?utm_source%3Dmediafed%26utm_medium%3Drss-feed%26utm_campaign%3DFeed-Latest%2BArticles%2Bfor%2BCelta%2BVigo'>Read more on Tribal Football</a> Here are ten of the top stories from LaLiga Santander, from fine margins at the top of the table to Sergio Ramos and Luis Surez's latest records.


THREE TEAMS ARE LEVEL AT TOP

It could hardly be tighter or more dramatic at the top of the LaLiga Santander table. After the results of matchdays 11 and 12, there are three teams level on 22 points, with Barcelona, Real Madrid and Real Sociedad all leading the way.


THE TIGHTEST OF LEAGUE TABLES

It's not just at the very top of the LaLiga Santander table that it's tight. The top 13 teams in the standings are separated by just five points. From Barcelona in first place on 22 points to Valencia in 13th on 17 points, every side is separated by just a couple of victories after what has been a fascinating start to the 2019/20 season.


TWO MATCHDAYS AND 60 GOALS

There was a midweek round in LaLiga Santander last week, with matchday 11 taking place across Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, before matchday 12 on Saturday and Sunday. In total, LaLiga fans saw 60 goals across the 20 games.


FRAN ESCRIBA'S TIME AT RC CELTA COMES TO AN END

Following RC Celta's 1-0 defeat against Getafe on Sunday, the Galician club decided to part ways with coach Fran Escrib. He took over in March and helped steer the Sky Blues away from the relegation zone and to survival at the end of the 2018/19 campaign, but paid the price for a rocky start to the 2019/season. He coached 24 LaLiga Santander games wide the side from Balaidos, winning six, drawing seven and losing 11.


16 YEARS OF GOALS FROM SERGIO RAMOS

By converting a penalty against Legans, Sergio Ramos scored his first league goal of the 2019/20 season. This was an extra special goal for the Real Madrid captain because it means that he has now scored in 16 consecutive LaLiga Santander campaigns. Of active players, only Lionel Messi can say the same thing.


ESPANYOL TURN 119

There were celebrations at RCD Espanyol this week, as the Catalan club celebrated the 119th anniversary of its founding. Founded in 1900, the club is the third-oldest in LaLiga Santander, behind only Athletic Club (1898) and FC Barcelona (1899), and special celebratory events were held at the club's official store on La Rambla, in the centre of Barcelona.


SANDRO ENDS SCORING DROUGHT

Real Valladolid fan favourite Sandro Ramirez finally broke his 23-month 11-day goalscoring drought when he fired home a rocket from outside the area in their 3-0 win over RCD Mallorca. The hope is that he'll now push on a continue banging them in after rediscovering his goalscoring touch.


LUIS SUAREZ'S IMPRESSIVE FEAT

By finding the net against Real Valladolid in midweek, Barcelona's Luis Suarez has now achieved the impressive feat of scoring against every team he has faced in LaLiga Santander. That's 27 different clubs, since moving to the Camp Nou in 2014.


ADURIZ HITS 400

In his final season before retirement, Aritz Aduriz hit another milestone for Athletic Club by making his 400th official appearance for the Bilbao-based team. By coming on against Espanyol, the striker reached this total. Of his 400 matches for the Basque side, Aduriz has won 155, drawn 104 and lost 141.


THE VILLARREAL ACADEMY PROJECT LANDS IN THE USA

A series of events were held in the USA over the past week, as Villarreal worked with LaLiga to take the Villarreal Academy project to Florida. Football camps, a soccer clinic and even a tournament were held across the state, while the club's former captain Marcos Senna was also involved in this project to promote grassroots football.

His father Mazinho played at Celta.

"It's something that you have from little, that you feel, you can't explain it," added Rafinha.
