One of the most surprising arrivals that had the Barcelona the past summer was the one of Matheus Fernandes, a Brazilian midfield player that arrived of the Palmeiras in return of 7 million euros and that grieve had minutes with the Real Valladolid where was yielded by six months. In fact, not even it was presented officially.

The Brazilian still has not won the confidence of the technician of the Barcelona, Ronald Koeman. It tried him look for an exit the past summer, but did not find any team that was interested in him. Only it has contested 17 minutes with the first team. This occurred in the appointment of the culés in the Champions League against the Dinamo of Kiev, party that, by the way, had a lot of rotations of players.

Praise and exaggeration

In the moment in which it concretised the operation of signing of the midfield player of 22 years, Eric Abidal still was technical secretary of the Barcelona. As it informed this Monday BE Catalonia, the sportive area of the combined Barcelona, ensured that the youngster was "the new Busquets". His height of 1,83 metres and his position -of pivote seemed to answer to the profile of the 5.

However, the reality of the Brazilian is one totally different to the one of Busquets. With Koeman has not contested neither the Glass of Rey neither any commitment of LaLiga Santander. It is an usual in falling of the announcements and all what was not an exit the next window of signings will be a surprise in upper case. Youngsters like Riqui Puig or Ilaix Moriba have happened him clearly by in front.

To his 22 years, Fernandes follows having agreement with the team barcelonista until mediated of the 2025. Justo now, finds in the list of players that, for the directive led by Joan Laporta, can be transferibles and cedibles, but will not be at all easy to give him an exit. Since it arrived to Spain, neither has had minutes and neither has convinced to the Barça or to the Real Valladolid. The curious of the case, is that in an interview that did him time backwards, the youngster affirmed that his idol was Busquets

How it was his signing

Months backwards, Alexandre Mattos, sportive director of Palmeiras, explained in an interview with Fox Sports how was that the Barcelona the fichó: "In October of 2019, called to André Cury (ex manager of catchment of the Barça in Brazil) and asked him that it spoke with Abidal because it wanted to teach him to a player. Cury Thought that it was Dudu. Abidal Was to see a training of the team reserves of Palmeiras. I said him 'it looks the number 35'. In this moment, called me crazy. 'You want to sell a player of reservation of Palmeiras, that plays little, to the Barcelona?'", it related

The Brazilian is a mediocentro pure, likes him participate in the game combinativo, landed in Pucela for and go adapting to the Spanish football. However, it has not arrived to win the confidence of the teams in which it has played. The memory that left in Valladolid, however, is good. Of agreement to a publication of Newspaper MARKS, describe it like somebody polite, with win to improve, that asked in what could improve. With quality, but still for developing in the physical.
