The Barcelona technician has not wanted to esquivar any question this Monday in the Ciutat Esportiva, although it has admitted that until the moment has not asked any concrete signing to the directive. "The Barça always is attentive to the market, is logical"
To two days that the FC Barcelona undertake his turns by United States -where will contest three friendly parties-, Ernesto Valverde has appeared in press conference to analyse his first days like technician culé and comment the actuality of the club, centred especially in the matter of signings.
And Valverde has been cutting, ensuring that up to now it has not asked "any signing in concrete". The technician, very calm and measured in his statements, has not wanted to speak neither of Verratti neither of Paulinho: "I do not think in what can incorporate to any player. The club works to have the best staff. My idea is always work with what have".
"We have spoken of the staff, but have not asked at all"
Precisely, on this last aim, is where more upsetting has done Valverde. "The club is attentive to the market, to players of other teams. It is difficult to improve what have here because have a big team. At the beginning they go out always a lot of names. I understand that the summer is long and gives foot to everything".
In front of the more than evident 'overbooking' that exists in the centre of the field, Valverde asks patience: "Have margin to decide of here until final of market. Our idea is to adjust the staff to the competitions that come us by in front. Regarding the number, will adjust us the number that want to compete, do not contemplate to have 25 midfield players and any central".
Finally, Valverde does not put a deadline to have the enclosed staff: "The trainers want that the staff close what before, but know that the times have changed a lot. In my period of player the first day already were with almost all your mates. We will see it in function of how go the things."
Robert Fernández gives long
When being asked on Verratti, a possible barter with Rakitc or in case they had received offers by some member of the staff this summer, Robert has showed conclusive: "we do not pose us lose to any player to achieve to another and up to now have not arrived offers by anybody".
