As far as auditions go, Angel Rodriguez couldn’t have swung the jury any better if he’d tried.

Introduced in the 52nd minute on Saturday, as his current side Getafe trailed FC Barcelona 2-0 at the Camp Nou, the striker was introduced as part of a double substitution involving he and fellow entrant Kenedy replacing Jorge Molina and Mathias Olivera.

Immediately making an impact on the proceedings, Angel slipped through the defence in a split second in the 66th minute. Rooted to the spot, he smashed home a side-footed volley that gave Barça something to think about, after complacently resting on the laurels provided by their two goal cushion.

The 32-year-old did not celebrate his fine effort, absorbed by some outlets such as Mundo Deportivo to mean that he is aleady Catalonia-bound, but there in the moment, as the Blaugrana attempted to keep the heat on La Liga leaders Real Madrid, there was little time to dwell on this as he came within a whisker of again hitting the back of the net.

Denied on the line by the one-handed heroics of Marc-Andre Ter Stegen, who blocked his shot and then managed to slap the ball away out of danger, the hosts eventually held on to their lead and are now, thanks to Los Blancos’ slip up against Celta Vigo last night, just a single point behind their eternal foes in La Liga as a March 1 installment of El Clasico fast approaches.

Before that, though, there are two fixtures against Eibar at home on Saturday and Napoli away in the Champions League.

According to SPORT’s Ivan San Antonio, coach Quique Setien has already clarified in meetings with sporting director Eric Abidal and right-hand man Roman Planes that he needs to start rotating a gravely-undermanned front line as early as the weekend.

Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele out injured, it is due to the revealed six-month absence of the latter that special permission has been requested from the RFEF to sign a stand-in replacement.

As soon as it is granted, San Antonio claims that Angel could sign within 24 hours and become an FC Barcelona player once his touted $11mn release clause has been activated.

Able only to feature in La Liga, he may feature in low priority assignments in the Spanish top flight while the likes of Lionel Messi and Antoine Griezmann are given a rest.

A much higher quality reinforcement than last season’s Kevin-Prince Boateng, to keep socios and Culés sweet, it is now just a matter of playing the waiting game to get the green light from the authorities.
