"The FC Barcelona has communicated to the Real Betis Balompié that exerts his right to recover to Emerson Royal, that has played yielded the two last seasons in the Andalusian team, from 1 July". East was the communiqué by means of which the Barça announced that the Brazilian side already is to all the new effects player barcelonista. A signing that took for granted, but that no thus it is necessary to leave to celebrate.

The carrilero arrives to the Barcelona to compete by a place in the right with Sergiño Dest. The Dutch of American origin arrived the summer gone through request expresses of Ronald Koeman and has completed a season something irregular. It has left very good feelings in determinate moments, but also has showed that is very green in other so many meetings.

Precisely because the international North American to his 20 years keeps on being a player that is in training, the arrival of Emerson is so necessary. The ex of the Athletic Mineiro has only 22 years, but carries already two campaigns in the Betis adapting to LaLiga and improving with the step of the parties. The international 'canarinho' seems right now more mature and complete that the one of Almere, by what expects that it was important the course that comes.

It will be necessary to see to who chooses Ronald Koeman or the trainer that feels in the bench culé the next campaign. What yes seems sure is that the elected will not be Sergi Roberto that it has remained without place in the right-handed side. The one of Reus carried several years consolidated in this position in front of the fault of effective in this zone, but right now would not have felt to follow betting by him in this zone, since there is two carrileros pure.

Sergi Roberto remains 'touched' with the arrival of Emerson

This leaves to the Catalan in a very feeble position, since it finishes agreement in 2022 and in these moments no needs him neither in defence neither in the centre of the field. Like midfield player, that is his natural position, apparently has fewer things that contribute that Frenkie of Jong, Sergio Busquets, Pedri, Ilaix Moriba, Riqui Puig or even that Miralem Pjanic, that in spite of not explaining for Koeman, is a mediocentro of a lot of level and quality.

With this panorama, Sergi is prescindible and has a lot of ballots to abandon the Barcelona this summer. It comments that the club will offer him the renewal to the drop with a wage a lot of minor of the that would like him. If it does not accept the proposal, will put him in the market to do box with him and that do not go free inside a year. The Manchester City follows him closely and in the weeks to come could do some offer by him.
