To the FC Barcelona him atragantó of to a large extent the final stretch of the market of signings, with numerous failures so much in signings as in sales
The market of signings closed the past 5 October and can not say precisely that all went to ask of mouth. The conclusions evidenciaron numerous failures of the club so much in the section of signings as in the one of sales, so much by operations that could not close as by others that agreed totally to the drop and in some frankly abysmal conditions. Everything in some last frantic hours.
Especially badly it was all in the section of signings, in which Ronald Koeman remained without any of the two only reinforcements that had asked. The first was Eric García, defence of 19 years with which already was all agreed to reinforce the defensive line. The Manchester City refused until four offers, the last of 10 'kilos' fixed more eight in variables (five of them of easy fulfillment). The operation fracasó by two míseros million.
Depay, a case that brushes the comic
Neither it arrived Memphis Depay, forward that also was a priority of Ronald Koeman for apuntalar the offensive zone. So that the crack of the Olympique of Lyon arrived without breaking the 'fair play' financial, was necessary to close the exit of Ousmane Dembélé to the Manchester United, by which negotiated during the two last days before. At the end, the French denied to go to Old Trafford and the second failure already was a reality.
In the section of exits, there were several players that do not go in in the plans of Ronald Koeman but that, in spite of this, did not go . The clearest case is the one of Samuel Umtiti, that supposes an annual cost of more than 12 million euros for the club but that does not explain for the trainer. His high wage combined with his physical problems did that anybody interested by him. There was not neither an alone offer in firm neither the option of 'give it back' to the Lyon in an exchange by Depay.
Another distinct case is the one of Matheus Fernandes, midfield player that arrived the past winter and that Ronald Koeman did not want to see neither in painting in his staff. In spite of knowing it, the Brazilian did not want to contemplate the option to leave of the FC Barcelona. There were offers in the final hours of teams like the Eibar to continue in LaLiga or of the Basilea to go to Switzerland. But the player did not want to go.
Exits to the drop
Other operations closed although without giving the feeling to be a good business. Jean-Clair Todibo, by which expected take out 20 million euros, refused to last hour go to the Fulham, that offered 18, and only accept a cession of two years to the Benfica, that contributed only two 'kilos' to the arks culés. But, however, the operation that carries the palm was the exit of Rafinha to the PSG by 3 millions in variables. Both are considered good businesses by the club.
