Jean-Clair Todibo left of the FC Barcelona the past summer to put course to the Benfica. The Portuguese asked the cession of the French by a season and the ex of the Toulouse sacked of the group barcelonista until 2021. But the adventure lusa of the defender is not going as it expected and in this first stretch of course has not played neither an alone minute with the team of the Eagles.

Jorge Jesus, trainer of the lisboetas, has not had he absolutely at all and does some days left clear that does not want it in his staff. "Todibo Will not be in front of the Standard. It does not have physical conditions neither tactical. It has not worked with the team. It is not one of the players in which I am thinking", said, although the defender carries weeks recovered of the injury that did him lose the first months of competition.

The ex technician of the Flamengo does not want to to the defender in his staff and from does weeks is speaking of the idea of the Portuguese to give back to the player to the Barcelona. The ones of the capital lusa would want to break the agreement of cession of the Frenchman in what it open the market of winter for fichar to another central. Lucas Verissimo, of the Saints, would be the elected, but his arrival depends on the exit of the of the French Guyana.

Nevertheless, command to the French of turn to the Barça will not be so simple as they believe , since the blaugrana do not have intention to facilitate his turn. In fact, as it aims 'Sportive World', internal sources of the group barcelonista ensure that "his signing in summer is fixed by agreement" and that "it is a cession by a year and does not exist the possibility that it return".

In the club consider that the Benfica does not have at all that do and that are trying to tighten the rope so that it was the Barcelona the one who have to move index card. The idea is not allowing that statements like the ones of Jorge Jesus affect to this operation, since the aim would be to finish forcing to the own group lisboeta to have to remain to the player and to give him minutes by need.

A dangerous decision for the interests of the Barça

But with this decision, the Barça risks to that the lusos leave all the campaign to the French in the terracing or in his house. This would be very negative of face to his hypothetical sale in summer, since his value would descend noticeably. No a lot of teams would want to pay by a footballer that has happened all the year without playing. The problem is that it can that in Barcelona neither had too many minutes, by what it would be necessary to think in which is the lower evil.
