All the big clubs has committed big errors in the past and, in the case of the FC Barcelona, the 'case Neymar' and all what this comported later can be one of the most catastrophic failures of the history of the entity. The summer of 2017 marked a before and an afterwards for the Barcelona club, after a series of operations that did not go out as it expected in a principle.

In the first place, the Barça committed the big error with the own Neymar. The Barcelona club renewed him to base of payments of commissions multimillionaires and of astronomical wages for the Brazilian but did not repair in something so basic like armouring him with a clause of rescission to proof of sheiks. Something that Paris Saint-Germain took advantage of to put on of the table of the 222 'kilos' of his price to carry it.

In a first moment thought that this quantity could serve to cover his drop by another 'galactic' but, for then, the clubs already knew that the Barça had of a lot of effective for fichar and that could inflar the price of any player. From the Barcelona club, in place to have cold blood to expect an opportunity, fell victims of his own despair and accessed to pay prices of crazy by players that did not cost it.

The 40 millions by Paulinho, a midfield player of half level with 29 years, or the 140 by Ousmane Dembélé when hardly a year before only cost 12 -besides, before the clausulazo of Neymar, his price was marked in 80- were a waste tremendo. Any of the two was a first sword or a player with experience or sufficient quality to equate to the Brazilian.

Coutinho, the guinda of the cake

After all, that Dembélé have not surrendered can attribute simply to the bad luck with the injuries, since talent has and has showed it. But the of Philippe Coutinho shows a fault of descoordinación total. The Brazilian, that in the Liverpool played of mediapunta, was fichado by the ex technical secretary Robert Fernández by 160 millions to be the relief of Iniesta treating of an entirely distinct player.

Besides, Ernesto Valverde neither bothered in testing it in the position for which had him fichado and confined him in the left extreme, converting him his experience like culé in a disaster. In total, 340 worn millions in few months for suplir to Neymar in three players that did not triumph. To all this, the past summer spent other 135 in Griezmann for, again, do him play out of position. New disappointment, new error and new form to show how not doing the things.
