It did not go at all easy. The FC Barcelona tried it everything to negotiate with Paris Saint-Germain and Liverpool the traspasos of Marco Verratti and Philippe Coutinho, but both clubs closed in band and the FC Barcelona was not able to incorporate to the staff to the midfield player of creative profile that was looking for this past summer in the market of signings.

The president of the Barça, Josep Maria Bartomeu, is not however at all concerned for that. it Trusts that, with the current staff and the punctual participation of players of the quarry, as Carles Aleñá, the Barcelona can go back to mark the differences in Europe.

"You can want to a player, but that his club do not want to sell it. Here the Barça and the clubs of LaLiga have an indefensión", has begun valuing Bartomeu, in the interview that has conceded during the last hours to 'MD'. "We are speaking with UEFA and FIFA to solve it, but is something of labour field. If in LaLiga there are clauses is because the AFE asked to a judge of the labour that there were them and gave them the reason".

The question is that, by some reasons or others, the Barça has finish remaining without Coutinho and Verratti. "The sportive reflection has been to level of team, and in this sense has identified that the Barcelona already has players of organisational profile and that there are players of the base prepared for this. An example is Carles Aleñá. From the sportive part has considered that weighs more the bet by the ones of house in front of the prices that there is was".

The planning of the next season, in the air

Bartomeu, besides, does not know if the FC Barcelona will go back to bet by Verratti and Coutinho in the future, of face to the next campaign, since this will depend on what suceda in the current. "Schedule of a season to another changes. It depends on how it go the season that keep or change the aims of the market. It will be necessary to see it when it approach next summer", has answered.

In this coyuntura, insinuates therefore that, unless there are surprises, the FC Barcelona does not have thought in principle make big investments in the market of signings of winter. Everything will depend, in any case, of which was the performance of the ones of Valverde.
