In addition to having interposed the PSG in the operation, from Can Barça do not wish to spend neither a euro in the reinforcement of the Dutch unless it produce some exit that contribute income.

In Lyon, besides, neither want to 'give' to his main star further that it have not renewed, for now, and that his agreement expire in June of 2021. If Depay lands in the Camp Nou, everything seems to indicate that it will do it during next summer, thing that also sucederá with all probability in the 'Operation Eric García', another of the big aims culés.

Descartado Depay For this winter, and with the hypothetical signing of Lautaro Martínez like an impossible dream to economic level, the Barcelona has seen forced to look for alternatives much more affordable, that do not affect even more to the arks of the club.

It would not arrive to be indisputable headline, neither much less, but yes to balance even more the forward and offer alternatives to the position of '9', at present with Braithwaite like only option.

Samuel Eto'or has not doubted in giving the 'OK' when being consulted by sources of the Barcelona club, although with the indispensable condition to go back to dress the dorsal '9'. Braithwaite, therefore, would happen to lucir any of the dorsal still available. Another that has given the seen well to the operation is Ronald Koeman, conscious that the African forward could be a temporary solution to the punctual problems that has the team in attack.

The arrival of Eto'or is foreseen for when it open the market of winter, by what the signing could close between the 1 and on 2 January. If the performance convinces to the 'staff' technical of Koeman and to the sportive direction, in addition to to the new president of the Catalan entity (after the elections of the day 24), to Eto'or would offer him a new agreement by a season more, until finals of June of 2022.

To his 39 years, Eto'or has accepted the challenge and is convinced to be able to to surrender to base of goals and assistances: "I keep Me strong and have not lost the smell goleador", has ensured during a videollamada in scoop for 'FCBN'. "The chemistry with Messi neither has changed, still can achieve big together things", adds. The Barça, like this then , already has new wintry reinforcement for the forward.
