The market of signings hardly finish to begin, but the FC Barcelona already has fichado to Net Walled and Frenkie of Jong, has traspasado to Denis Suárez, André Gomes, Cillessen, Cardona and Cucurella (although it will go back to go out again) and has left that they leave with the letter of freedom Vermaelen, Murillo, Boateng and Douglas, to the not having they.

Of here to that it finish the summer there will be more names so much in the chapter of exits as of arrivals, and the FC Barcelona has very defined his planning of signings to know which are the next steps to be followed. The first seems that it will be the signing of Antoine Griezmann, that could do official in question of hours after having happened his clause of 200 millions to 120 'kilos'.

FC Barcelona and Athletic could reach an agreement in which both algan benefited, although the figure that will pay the group culé never will be upper to the of the clause of 120 millions.

Another decision that already would be confirmed is the one to award to Jean-Clair Todibo the opportunity to be the fourth head office of the staff. The FC Barcelona already refused his possible cession to the Celtic of Vigo, since Ernesto Valverde has he now that it has remained without Vermaelen and Murillo. After I Hammered, Lenglet and Umtiti, is foreseen that Todibo can go evolving and obtaining prominence little by little.

No less important is to resolve the future of Nélson Semedo, with the one who so much the managerial board like Ernesto Valverde explain. No descarta still to 100% his possible inclusion in the 'Operation Griezmann', although the initial idea is that it was not like this and that follow forming part of the staff the next season. The 'Txingurri' would have foreseen a talk with him.

The FC Barcelona also will follow giving gone out to the players with which does not explain. The next traspasos will be the ones of Rafinha, Cucurella and Sergi Palencia, whereas they keep in 'stand-by' the operations of players transferibles like Coutinho, Malcom, Rakitic or even Dembélé, waiting for seeing how evolves the market and the 'Operation Neymar'. The majority of these transferibles will follow and Neymar Jr so only will land in the Barça in a hypothetical case, in spite of all the speculations.

The Barça needs to reinforce the left side

Finally, it will do lacking to reinforce the position of the left side with a new effective that achieve to reduce the wear and the minutes of Jordi Alba, one of the big pillars of the team and the only that has not had relief this last season.
