The human being accustoms to extract fast conclusions, in hot. We are visceral by nature. The social networks flooded of messages elogiando to Sergi Samper after his more than remarkable performance in front of the Juventus. To the canterano saw him solid in defensive tasks, very positioned and very agile in the game asociativo, not interfering between Iniesta and Messi.

It understood his role and executed it to perfection, leading the pressure of the team, something that is used to to do Busquets to perfection. It is pre-season and only was a party, but was a good sample of what is able to do Samper, that has been yielded a year in Granada where has taken experience.

There it has not been able to stand out because the style of game of the Andalusian group was distant a lot of the culé, but yes learnt and improved a lot in the defensive facet, something that in Barcelona is distinct, since the Barcelona team is not so embattled, but it is used to to have the tempo of the party. And this changes it everything. 

The big question that do us is: owe the Barça remain it and forget of Paulinho? The most logical would be to say "yes" to this question. The reasons are simple: it knows the house, is 22 years old -projection- and fulfils with the necessary requirements to be able to play in the first team. No perhaps for powerful parties of Champions, but yes for the League. 

Would have little sense invest near of 40 millions by a player like Paulinho that would have to adapt to the philosophy of the Barça. Besides, the Brazilian never has been a footballer that have stood out in Europe. It would not be better to bet by Samper -that has a risk- and give this second opportunity to André Gomes that seems will arrive?

The millions, for the stars

Already we said it does weeks that this team does not need big changes. Had to retouch some concrete pieces to improve the basic wardrobe. The other is almost inmejorable. Therefore it does not have felt to spend a millonada by a player that even can be by behind until four players -Rakitic, Iniesta, Sergi Roberto and Gomes/Suárez-. 

40 millions would not have to invest in Paulinho, a player with little projection already, and yes in stars or emergent stars like Dybala, Hazard, Griezmann or Coutinho. The other has to go out of the quarry, where there are players with level that need opportunities... And be surrounded of good players so that they adapt better and can surrender to high level.
