FC Barcelona and Real Madrid are used to to struggle elbow with elbow by the big promises of the international football. Raisin almost every year, and along the last times have been able to see cases of players that were near of fichar by one of the two teams and, in a last twist of events, left to the eternal rival. It happened with Neymar Jr, Vinicius Jr, Asensio, Ceballos... And further back in the time with Isco, Rakitic or Luis Suárez.

In occasions, the FC Barcelona has measured too much his offers and this has caused that the Real Madrid, adding some figure more to the talonario, did with young players in clear ascensión. It occurred with Marco Asensio, the one who was to a step to leave to the Barça but finally finish in the Real Madrid, after Zubizarreta and the rest of high controls culés did not bet by the signing to 100%.

Now, the vice-president of Peñarol has explained that the FC Barcelona launched an offer by Federico Valverde, but at the end was the Real Madrid the one who carried it to him when betting with greater strength and economic muscle by the young Uruguayan midfield player, that is exploding this season under the control of Zidane.

"In addition to the Real Madrid, other clubs like Arsenal, Manchester United and Barça interested by Federico. The Barça did not want to pay the price that we sued, not even approached to him. They have lost to a big player by have not wanted to make this economic effort", has explained Rodolfo Catino in statements conceded to the newspaper 'ACE'.

It had to go up his offer the FC Barcelona by Valverde? To day of today is being one of the feelings of the season so much in LaLiga as in the European panorama. His ancestry in the team of Zidane has gone up of meteoric way, until the point that the Uruguayan is indisputable headline right now to the detriment of other players like Modric, Isco or James. Author of two goals and an assistance, his physical power and his profile of 'all-terrain' turn him into a total midfield player with a lot of route in the group merengue.

Barça and Madrid, always in the fight by the best

The FC Barcelona thought that there were other priorities in the market of signings when it posed his possible incorporation, and went the Real Madrid the one who carried the cat to the water. Of course, this same has occurred him to the whites sometimes with the group culé, and is a situation that will follow happening in the next years. Barça and Madrid, the two big antagonists of the European football, always will litigate by the 'cracks' of the future.
