The market of signings of the summer 2019 has like protagonist to the FC Barcelona, immersed in another important reform of his staff. The Catalans want to step advance and already have confirmed several reinforcements for the first team, although they do not lose of sight the inferior categories and also have done officials some incorporations that will improve the filial.
Between the recently arrived to the City Condal finds Hiroki Abe, an attacker of hardly 20 years that played in the Kashima Antlers. The priority of the window estival was to concretise the return of Takefusa Kubo, but when they complicated the negotiations with the ex of the Masia, the managers culés activated another contracting of a lot of carats.

The qualities and the talent that treasures the international Japanese award him an opportunity of gold, and it will be necessary to see how advances an adaptation that will initiate in hardly some days.
But to level of márketing, the attacker also supposes an interesting investment, since it allows that the Barcelona have another visible face in his strategy of expansion in the Asian country.

It does not be necessary to forget the recent collaboration of the Barça with Rakuten, that is one of his big sponsors and that in this same pre-season will organise the Rakuten Cup, that will cross to the group that directs Ernesto Valverde with Chelsea (Saitama, 23 July) and the Vissel Kobe (Kobe, 27 July). The youngster will not be to the orders of the Txingurri in these appointments of preparation in 'his house', but will be another piece more in the gear of the entity.
The Barça could go back to 'fish' in Japan
The signing of Hiroki Abe is not the only that controls the Barça in Japan, where also follows to Jun Nishikawa. The midfield player of the Cerezo Osaka is another perla of the country that is shining so much to level of club as of selections, although to think in a possible mudanza to the Camp Nou it will be necessary to expect still some months, since is 17 years old and could not leave until fulfilling the majority of age, something that sucederá on 21 February 2020.
