By some odd reason, Jean-Clair Todibo has not achieved to win the confidence of any trainer in the FC Barcelona. When it arrived pertinent of the Toulouse in return of one million euros -finish agreement and agreed his arrival to the Camp Nou with the culés-, Ernesto Valverde hardly loaned him attention and much less opportunities, by what authorised his exit the past month of January.

After the fleeting step of Quique Setién by the FC Barcelona, that coincided with the cession of Jean-Clair Todibo to the Schalke 04 with a performance a so much irregular, expected that Ronald Koeman could concede him a second opportunity to the central French. And more taking into account that Samuel Umtiti did not go in in the plans of the Dutch and that the arrival of Eric García went to be complicated.

Todibo Wanted to be still in the Barça

But neither it arrived in this occasion. Ronald Koeman had Gerard Hammered, Clément Lenglet and Ronald Araújo like main head offices and with Santiago Bouquets Mingo like option of emergency in front of the uncertainty with Samuel Umtiti. Jean-Clair Todibo did not play neither a minute with the Dutch trainer, that had clear that him quedía was. It is thus that the club put him in the market.

The FC Barcelona was very near to sell him by 18 million euros to the Fulham, but the player refused the option to last hour and decanted by the Benfica, with an offer much less convincente. The Portuguese paid two million euros for doing with the cession of the French by two seasons and obtained an option of purchase no compulsory by value of 20.

By what seems, Jean-Clair Todibo has not taken too much in enamorar to the technical body of the Benfica. According to the informations published this Sunday by the 'Correio give Manha', Jorge Jesus, trainer of the group luso, is impressed with the qualities that is showing him the player yielded by the FC Barcelona in the few trainings that carries in Portugal. It thinks that has potential to be an important player.

The FC Barcelona, scarce of head offices

The FC Barcelona has an evident deficit in the position of head office, the less populated and feebler of the staff​. It is true that the intention of the group barcelonista is to reinforce with Eric García in January but, to date, could have him given the opportunity to Jean-Clair Todibo, before that 'give' his cession by two millions. If the French progresses properly, could elevate his value very above these 20 millions in which it enciphers his option of purchase.
