The FC Barcelona follows studying options in the market of signings, although no all the operations that wishes to close the sportive direction headed by Éric Abidal go to be possible. In concrete, there are two footballers that like but that are practically descartados, at least in the short term: it treats of Tanguy Ndombélé, midfield player of the Tottenham Hotspur and Pau Torres, defence of the Villarreal.

In the first of the cases, the one of Tanguy Ndombélé, the FC Barcelona saved hopes of ficharle because in spite of being a player that arrived to the team londinense does hardly a year by 60 million euros, does not have cuajado a good campaign. His little continuity owing to the injuries has done that it have not been a fixed neither for Mauritius Pochettino in a start neither neither now for José Mourinho.

However, according to the informations desveladas this Friday by the 'Daily Mail', Daniel Levy, president of the Tottenham Hotspur, considers that the bet that made by the French does a year is the sufficiently consistent as to give him a second opportunity. It is thus that descartará the interest of the FC Barcelona, that even had arrived to pose offer to Philippe Coutinho like piece of change. Although, on the other hand, the culés already reinforced his medullary with Miralem Pjanic.

By the another side, according to the informations published by the newspaper 'Sport', also is descartado Pau Torres, head office of the Villarreal. To his 23 years, has been one of the disclosures of this last edition of LaLiga Santander, by what called the attention of the FC Barcelona, as well as of several clubs of big European scope like the Manchester United or the Manchester City.

But we are speaking of an unfeasible operation economically, since the clause of rescission of the defence castellonense is of 65 million euros and the Villarreal in no case would sell it by less than 30. In the economic appearance, Manchester United and Manchester City have a lot of more options that the FC Barcelona to carry to Pau Torres. Besides, for the culés is Eric García the aim prioritario for the defence.

Seven 'signings' safe for the FC Barcelona

In spite of the failure with Tanguy Ndombélé and Pau Torres, the FC Barcelona opts to other signings like the ones of Eric García or Lautaro Martínez. Besides, the culés can have until seven safe reinforcements for the next campaign: Miralem Pjanic, Francisco Trincao, Pedri and Matheus Fernandes will arrive like signings already closed in the present season, whereas Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig and Ronald Araujo will go up of the filial.
