They were not few the names that sounded to be included in the 'Operation Neymar'. First they were Coutinho and Rakitic those who more covers occupied, but with the step of the days the press centred also in Semedo, Dembélé and Todibo like alternatives. Josep Maria Bartomeu confirmed this Friday that the Barça never proposed players to the PSG, but it was the Parisian group the one who did it.

To the thread of the words of the president of the Barcelona, in any case, from the Catalan entity did not value the possibility to include to footballers and that was one of the reasons by the which the operation was not viable. But if it had left Jean-Clair Todibo in the last days of the summer, in any case, from the Barça would have had very clear who had to be his substitute.

And the elected would not have been another that Ronald Araujo. It treats of a defender of the same profile that Todibo, talentoso and with a potential tremendo to his 20 years, but still with a lot that learn in the elite. It would have risen him to the first team so that it learnt of the players of the staff and went curtiendo, and of this form the Barça would have completed the team without need of fichar to a new central.

With Gerard Hammered and Clément Lenglet like the couple title of defenders, Samuel Umtiti is the third in discord and expects to have progressively of minutes along the season 2019-20. Ronald Araujo, in this sense, would not have had a big incidence regarding minutes contested unless it produced some unexpected injury in the saga.

The case is that Todibo did not do the cases, by what to day of today is he the fourth head office and Ronald Araujo will be still in the filial this campaign. The FC Barcelona, in spite of everything, has the luck to have two young head offices and that aspire to mature in question of few years.

Of Ligt sounded with strength for the Barça

A lot of fans asked the signing of Matthijs of Ligt this summer, but instead of this the FC Barcelona preferred to bet by Todibo for the first team and by Araujo in the filial. The time will say if the decision taken from the sportive area was or no the hit, but what knows for the moment is that Of Ligt, that chose to the Juventus to have more leadership of the that would have had in the Barça, for now is not to title with Sarri.
