The market of signings closed his doors the past Tuesday, and with this the possibility that Neymar Jr went back to dress the Barcelona T-shirt in the short term. But the true is that the FC Barcelona was not the only big club of LaLiga that remained without his 'guinda' for the staff. Real Madrid and Athletic of Madrid neither could do with the services of two players that became his priorities in the last days of 'mercatto'.

We speak of Paul Pogba and Rodrigo Moreno. The French midfield player appeared from beginnings of the summer like the big pretence of Zinedine Zidane to revolutionise the medullary merengue. And, when Florentino Pérez began to fichar to right and left and did with five players in less than two weeks, all the world thought that the rest of the summer would serve to focus the arrival of Pogba.

Jovic, Militao, Mendy, Rodrygo and Hazard signed by the entity madridista in the month of July, but in August the Real Madrid did not attain to convince to the Manchester United that it left to leave to Paul Pogba by a reasonable price. The wish of the footballer was to give the jump to the team merengue and desvincularse of the 'network devils', but Solskjaer had the French and did not give the traspaso.

Neither Rodrigo Moreno happened to dress the colours of the Athletic of Madrid, although his case was even more surprising. There was agreement between player and club, and the Spanish forward travelled until the Spanish capital to happen the medical recognition waiting for that both clubs closed the operation. At the end, there was not understanding and Rodrigo had to return to Valencia.

Three operations that can advance in winter

The ariete Hispanic-Brazilian never had bad words against his current club, and follows dressing the colours of the team 'ché' with the maximum motivation, although sabedor that in January can give a new chapter in the negotiations between Athletic and Valencia, already definite. The same could suceder with Pogba and Neymar for Real Madrid and Barça when it open the window of traspasos.

And it is that, when the operations are so hot and do not concretise , always remains a spine nailed. And if Manchester United, PSG and Valencia arrive to agreements with the three big of LaLiga, in brief will be able to see to new 'cracks' that boost the show in the Spanish competition.
