Thanks to an error in 2016 by the Brazilian Santos board, Barcelona has secured the preferential purchase option for two of the rising 'jewels' of the São Paulo team
The sale of Gabriel Barbosa to the Inter of Milan by part of the Saint FC in 2016, has opened him the door to the FC Barcelona to be able to have the option of purchase of the defender Kaiky Fernandes, of 18 years, and the extreme Ángelo Gabriel, of 17. All this, as it aims 'SPORT', owing to one of the agreements in simultaneous of the Catalan group in 2013 by Neymar Júnior, in where, previous payment of 7,9 million euros, had the right of preferential purchase of three players of the Saints, and one of them was 'Gabigol'.
Of turn to 2016, was Robert Férnandez the one who occupied the place of technical secretary of the Barça, and he same travelled to Brazil to be able to see with his own eyes the exert of Barbosa. However, the attacker did not show the results expected, by what the Barcelona group would not move by his signing. In spite of this, this did not exempt to the Peixe to notify to Catalonia in which moment went it to sell, thing that overlooked.
The club 'canarinho' finished selling to the forward to the Inter by 30 million euros, what generated the immediate answer of the City Condal through a complaint to the FIFA by incumplimiento of agreement. The maximum organism of the world-wide football determined that the ones of Urbano Caldeira had to credit a payment by three millions, but the club found plagado of debts and feared that a new sanction forbade him fichar by several markets of traspasos.
Nevertheless, and again as 'SPORT', the new directive that took the control of the institution offered this preferential option to the culés on Kaiky and Ángelo, in what it seems to be an agreement more than sealed. Ándres Rueda is the new mandator in the offices of the team paulista, and to kept agreements with several creditors that loomed with paralysing the club because of the morosidad. Now, everything indicates that they have focused in resolving the pending subjects and go back to plant to the Saints in style.
Two important players
Close the traspaso of these footballers could be some important movements for the future of the institution. Both work in the positions of more need for the staff blaugrana, in addition to offering even more youth to the plantel. Xavi Hernández could see his arrival like an opportunity to increase the possibilities of success of the team, which showed good level in the Supercopa of Spain, and that expects to show in the eighth of Glass of the King in front of the Athletic Bilbao.
