In words of the own technical secretary ofl FC Barcelona, Robert Fernández, the election of the leading chamber was the most difficult of the summer. After losing the clear options of Vietto and Gameiro, to the group blaugrana opened him different and distinct possibilities to the hour to reinforce in this demarcation. To the option of Paco Alcácer appeared him others just across the Atlantic. Gabriel Jesus, "Gabigol" or Luan were some of which sounded but that, finally, did not finish of like to Robert. The reasons were these.

"The most complicated signing of all because it is a very delicate situation", began saying on the subject the sportive director in an interview for "Sport".  By what the Barça preferred to opt by the atacanta of Valencia CF is due to the fact that "it is young, with big possibilities and was an important person in Valencia"

The one of Torrent imposed to the Brazilian options that, as it explained the Barcelona technician was been due to, especially, the experience in First Spanish Division.  "In Brazil there are a lot of players, with the same price that Alcacer, some even more. Paco has the experience to having played four years in First Division, is international… know It more and consider that his adaptation would be faster that the one of a Brazilian, although they were players very good", had to well say.

And it is that, as well it knows Robert, the change of Sudamérica to Spain or Europe is very difficult: "Always I say that there is very few players sudamericanos that go directly to a big in Europe. All have to pay a toll: Ronaldinho, Rivaldo, Ronaldo, Roberto Carlos, Marcelo… The only is Neymar. If besides they are young, sure that they have to pay this toll. The bet could be good, of future but are speak of the same quantity of money and Paco already is a reality".
