Calendar of FC Barcelona

Yusuf Demir Has been the third victim of the FC Barcelona (or fourth, if it includes the 'operation Umtiti'), after Philippe Coutinho and Àlex Hill. The Barcelona picture has broken the cession of the Austrian player, to the that does some months called him the 'Messi Austrian'. Yusuf Was, precisely, one of the big bets of the Barcelona club in the summer, but the history has changed very soon. It leaves by the rear door and without leaving footprint in the team.

Demir Presented like a very polyvalent player (that it is it) and able to play so much of extreme, by the two bands, as of mediapunta. However, in the FC Barcelona grieve and had some opportunities. It contested, in total, nine parties, with 290 minutes contested. The majority of the clashes played them like acting and had more incidence in the beginning of the season, but went diluting with the happen of the time. It leaves , definitively, by the rear door.

There are several important points in the exit of Demir, of both edicts, but it is necessary to recognise that lto sportive planning of the Barça remains in doubt. It was a bet of the club and there was a lot of confidence in the Austrian extreme, but this dispelled very soon. Maybe it was missing time, maybe no, but the true is that it remains very clear that anybody has a place ensured in the team... And if you do not shine immediately, you do not have more remedy that do your cases, because this of 'expect', right now, is not viable in the Camp Nou, especially when the competition is maximum in the Barcelona picture.

Probably the club culé precipitated with the Austrian, no by his cession, but for giving him an index card in the first team so rapido, when in principle it landed to Can Barça to reinforce the filial, trained by Sergi Barjuán. And it is that his exert in the pre-season, caused that Ronald Koeman awarded his complete confidence to him, conscious that after the exit of Leo Messi and Antoine Griezmann in the summer and the injuries of Ansu Fati or Dembélé, the leading had remained totally orphan.

Demir, in this moment, presented like a light in the middle of the uncertainty, at the same time that Àlex Hill remained without index card in the Barça... It was one of the few available resources for dinamizar the attack and in this moment, with the situation to the limit, were unlikely that could carry out a new incorporation. Now, with the incorporations of Dani Alves and Ferran Tores, was necessary no only free the mass salarial, but also have available squares in the first team, conscious that the Barça wants to inscribe to Gavi and Nico.

Who will be the following 'victim'?

The Barça still needs more movements in this market of wintry signings. For the Barcelona picture is paramount to follow lightening the mass salarial, with exits and contractual readjustments, as in the case of Samuel Umtiti. It is the only road in which the Barcelona will be able to complete, between other things, the traspaso of Álvaro Morata.

The Barça follows working in the possible incorporation of the international with Spain, but are conscious that the Juventus is putting a lot of obstacles on the way, reason by which have begun his played 'final', that would include to Memphis Depay.
