Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona is seeing in the present season like the urgencies regarding his effective in defence have begun to appear by fault of the injuries. Players like Thomas Vermaelen or Samuel Umtiti are accusing the physical problems and hardly have been able to have continuity in the current course, something that left to Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet like only effective in the saga.

The need to reinforce was imperiosa and, in spite of the economic restrictions caused by the cost in the previous windows of signings, the FC Barcelona moved with efficiency to bring to a footballer without cost of traspaso but that offered some guarantees. The elected was Jeison Murillo, that arrived yielded by Valencia. 

Curiously, a year before, the FC Barcelona lived a very seemed situation with the course of Javier Mascherano, that left a vacancy for covering in the saga. In this occasion, the elected was a Colombian compatriot of Jeison Murillo: Yerry Mina. Both of the same country and both of the same position, but two styles of signing very distinct.

Yerry Mina, that arrived pertinent of the Palmeiras Brazilian, was a footballer with a lot of projection of future but without any type of experience in the football of European elite. The result was not of the all convincente, since Ernesto Valverde hardly trusted he and, when it gave him opportunities, the Colombian showed little filmed, being traspasado in summer.

The difference of Murillo with Yerry Mina

Given the experience with Yerry Mina, the urgencies of the present season have given step to a signing of court very distinct. Jeison Murillo is 26 years old and is not a bet of future like his compatriot, but all the contrary: a player curtido, with experience in LaLiga and also to the maximum European level being headline in the rows of the Inter of Milan.

Ernesto Valverde did not want experiments and asked to the technical office to a player of route in the Spanish football that had a fast adaptation and Murillo turned into an ideal option. Crazy for dressing the Barcelona T-shirt, the Colombian arrives motivated and with a lot of experience, something that will do fault until final of season.
