The problems of effective that is having the FC Barcelona in his defence by fault of the continuous injuries of Thomas Vermaelen and of the uncertain state of the knee of Samuel Umtiti did that the signing of a central was question of state in Can Barça. Finally, Jeison Murillo has been the elected.

The Colombian defence, up to now in the ficlas of Valencia, will arrive yielded until final of season with an option of purchase at the end of the same that rondaría the 25 million euros. The fact that the group 'che' need to free index cards of his staff for fichar to a forward has facilitated the negotiations between both clubs.

Jeison Murillo moves away of this profile of defence mediático to the style of Matthijs of Ligt. The FC Barcelona wanted a signing 'low cost' and carries to a player experienced in spite of his youth -is 26 years old- and with a lot of job. Especially, it stands out for having physical attributes very good that give him superiority in several facets of the game. 

The Colombian is a swift player, something that works to perfection to do coverages. Besides it is a good player regarding tactical perception, by what can work very well at the side of Gerard Hammered or Clément Lenglet. Lucas Alcaraz, that had him like pupilo in the Granada, stood out this on him: "it Is a fast player, arrives well to the crossing and does good coverages".

The defect of Murillo: the exit of the balloon

Jeison Murillo is considered a central defence to the old usanza: with big physical qualities but without the necessary technician to give fluidity to the game from the saga. The Colombian is not an expert taking out the balloon played from backwards, something that can be a problem like that of game of the Barcelona, but it will be necessary to see how manages .

Abel Resino, ex technician and goalkeeper of the Athletic of Madrid and that also had him in the Granada, spoke on this lack of Murillo: "it is not a player with big skills taking out the balloon, but can complement with another mate, already was with the central that has like mate or the pivote or the sides and that they are they those who drive the balloon".
