The market of signings of the summer 2019 is in full ebullición, and the FC Barcelona is already very near to complete his duties. If it confirms the incorporation of Junior Firpo will have certified a reinforcement by line -also arrived Frenkie of Jong, Net Walled and Antoine Griezmann-, and will be able to centre in outlining the operation gone out while it expects patiently to that it arise some interesting opportunity.

The international panorama has revolutionised with the traspaso of Harry Maguire, that will turn into the most expensive defence of the history. The one of Sheffield will leave the Leicester City and enrolará in the Manchester United, and could pop the banking and plant by in front of Virgil go Dijk (85 million euros) in this peculiar classification because in England value him in a rank between 87 and 93 million euros.

This explosion with the central has done to think to the culés, that took in completing his saga but have an axis of maximum quality. It cost to forget to legends like Carles Puyol, but Gerard Hammered has taken the witness of the big captain and is the veteran and reference of a plot that has young like Samuel Umtiti and Clément Lenglet and a promise pujante like Jean-Clair Todibo.

It is really curious that the sum of all these investments hardly was of 66,9 millions, a figure that today seems cheap for a central solo. Repescar To the Catalan of the United cost 5 millions, to which it is necessary to add the 25 paid to the Olympique of Lyon by the one of Yaundé, the 35,9 of the clause that the Seville put him to the of Beauvais and the 'kilo' that cost to convince to the Toulouse that it will free to the of Cayenne.

By the way there have been other businesses with more or less success, but the strategy of the Barça is not bad because it does not have pillado the fingers. The efforts are controlled and make in occasions explained, and are far of a podium that will lead Maguire by in front of the mentioned Go Dijk and of Lucas Hernández, that cost him 80 millions to the Bayern of Munich. In occasions does not do lacking rascarse so much the pocket to hit.

It will break the record the Barça if index card to Of Ligt?

The Barça already has a lot of carats and to very good price, but was about to to be leading with Matthijs of Ligt. The Dutch was a bet of present and of future, the possible heir of Gerard Hammered to the that remain him few years in the Camp Nou. The Juventus paid 70 fixed millions and agreed 10,5 more in variables, what has aupado to the of Leiderdorp to the fourth place of the most expensive defences. His agent, Mino Raiola, left to fall that Turín will not be the last destination of the central, and this always has dreamed with playing in the Camp Nou. They will break the record and the tendency the Barcelona by the ex of the Ajax?
