To so alone days that it open the market of winter, the FC Barcelona is tied to the typical rumours of the period, mainly on the players that already came being related with the club culé, as Eric García or Memphis Depay. However and although the Catalan entity does not accustom to incorporate players in this window, except some surprise, if there were some of players that arrived in January to the Camp Nou during the last decade.
In 2011, by explicit request of Pep Guardiola, the Barcelona fichó to the Dutch Ibrahim Afellay, pertinent of the PSV Eindhoven in return of three million euros and although in his first season was quite regular, leaving several brushstrokes of quality, like the assistance to Messi in The Classical that the blaugranas won in the Bernabéu in the Champions League, by 0-2, an injury almost to finals of the year mermó the rest of the career of "Ibi" like culé. Finally, the player happened yielded to the Schalke 04 and to the Olympiacos, without recovering his best version, to finish finally in the Stoke City, after his exit of Catalonia.
Seven years had to happen so that the Barcelona went back to do wintry shopping, since it was in enerode 2018 when the club decided to incorporate to Philippe Coutinho and to Yerry Mina. The first arrived from the Liverpool in return of 145 million euros and in spite of his intermittent performance, still keeps in the club, with a cession to the Bayern Munich of by half, whereas the alone second was six months in Catalonia, after arriving from the Palmeiras by almost 12 "kilos" and go out sold to the Everton by 30.

The last signing of winter that has made the FC Barcelona has been the one of the Danish Martin Braithwaite, the one who added to the discipline culé in February of this year, after being bought to the Leganés by 18 million euros. His signing had something of stir, since the Barcelona team had a species of special permission to concretise it, given the combination between the drop of Luis Suárez and the number of players that there was in the staff of the club in this moment.
Of the incorporations that has done the Barcelona during the winters of the last decade, the one of Braithwaite is perhaps the one who better results has given, since the forward has earned importance in the actuality of the club, colándose recurrentemente in the alignment title of Ronald Koeman and marking some goals.
