A year ago, Todibo arrived at Barça as an alternative to the more than likely "no" of De Ligt, which eventually ended up being produced. A year later, everything has changed a lot

What are the things. To finals of 2018, the signing of Matthijs of Ligt, priority of the FC Barcelona to rejuvenate the defence, began to complicate and even Josep Maria Bartomeu aimed that it already knew in which team would finish the Dutch (was the Juventus, although the Barça kept his offer on the table until the last sigh). In front of this 'chronic of a death announced', from the Camp Nou looked for solutions.

The FC Barcelona did not expect to that Of Ligt decided in summer, but it attacked to his 'relief' already in January. It was Jean-Clair Todibo, a mediocentro defensive of the filial of the Toulouse that had turned into one of the feelings of Tie it 1 after bursting into in the first team playing like head office to a big level. To his 19 years, finish agreement in summer, what facilitated his arrival by one million euros.

A year after this, the situation has given a twist tremendo and, maybe, unthinkable then. Todibo, in spite of having a very reduced leadership in the FC Barcelona, has numerous offers on of the table so much to leave traspasado as to leave yielded, since his physical and technical conditions are very very valued in Europe.

And, what are the things. Of Ligt, a central by which the FC Barcelona dribbled does hardly some months and to the that considered the natural heir of Gerard Hammered in the axis of head office of the defence, has turned into the big forgotten of Maurizio Sarri in the Juventus of Turín in spite of that the Vecchia Signora disbursed 85 million euros by him in summer.

The adaptation to the Italian football is being a problem for Of Ligt, that has turned into the fourth head office of the team after Bonucci, the lesionado Chiellini and the youngster Demiral, that has confirmed his 'sorpasso' on the Dutch. Something that was unthinkable when it arrived as 'galactic'. Of course, still it has time to invest his situation but, by the moment, his individual errors have condemned him to the bench.

Todibo Convinces in Europe

Whereas Of Ligt curses his decision veraniega, to Todibo him it rifan in Europe. With the few opportunities that the French has had to play in the Barça, the French has convinced to Milan and Bayern Leverkusen so that they trust fully in him, whereas Ernesto Valverde keeps him in the ostracism in spite of the difficulties of his 'central of confidence'. To the doors of the more than likely exit of the Txingurri, does not foresee that the Barça risk to sell him. Cession or sale with option of repurchase, as a lot.
