Although the initial plan of the FC Barcelona was to reinforce this summer with Matthijs of Ligt and Antoine Griezmann for like this strengthen even more the staff, both signings keep stagnated. The price of the first shoots , and on the second there are doubts
The FC Barcelona already has tied to Frenkie of Jong like first reinforcement for the next season 2019-20, but will not be the only. From the Catalan entity know that they will need more signings of height to improve the staff and content to some upset fans by the bad end of season of the team, that happened to be to few steps of the triplete to remain only with the title of League.
Beside Of Jong, the initial plan of the FC Barcelona was to bring to his compatriot Matthijs of Ligt and to the French Antoine Griezmann, for like this improve the provision of the defence and the potential goleador of the team. The sportive planning like this decided it, before even of the painful defeats of the Barcelona in front of Liverpool and Valency in Champions and Glass of Rey.
'MD' like this ensures it, sustaining that Griezmann was the first request of Valverde, and that already was sondeado during the summer of the escape of Neymar to Paris Saint-Germain. Then it could not and it landed Ousmane Dembélé, whereas a year afterwards the Barça received a 'no' of the French that trastocó the plans of the 'Txingurri' and of the managerial culé.
Precisely the refusal of Griezmann generated the antipathies of big part of the barcelonismo, to the that would cost him accept his signing this summer. From here they arise the doubts of the directive of the Barça, that could ficharle in the weeks to come by 120 million euros but that, for the moment, keeps the operation stagnated and under a deep analysis.
With Matthijs of Ligt this problem does not exist, since the Barcelona fans wishes his arrival and sees him like the future successor of Gerard Hammered in the saga, with route to turn into a legend of the club during the next decade. The only hándicap are the economic requirements of the representative of the player, Mino Raiola, that would be shooting the price -included commissions- of the operation.
Like this the things, the two big priorities of the FC Barcelona for the next season 2019-20 keep in 'stand-by'. At the end, it is possible that the Barça decant by other alternatives and that neither Griezmann neither Of Ligt finish dressing the elastic Barcelona in the Camp Nou. Everything will depend on how pass the next weeks, when the environment have relaxed .

From here, and with the arrival of Frenkie of Jong enclosed, has arrived the hour to analyse which are the true needs of the staff... And if Of Ligt and Griezmann are the best options to cover them.
