The next summer market could be the great stage for Éderson in terms of taking the definitive leap in his career, although in 2023 he could have already done so, but Barça ended up ruling out the operation

It is not a secret for anybody that the midfield player of the Atalanta, Éderson, fulfil -and fulfilled- with the minimum requirements that had the FC Barcelona the past summer to be the possible replacement of Sergio Busquets. Further of the obvious differences of characteristics, the Brazilian has been supported by regularity this perception that it would have fit very well in the team culé, especially thanks to the physicist that allows him hold the 90 minutes playing to high intensity.

But in spite of being very high in the list of the Barça the past year, after they offered to the player by 30 million euros, the entity could not advance in the operation. And it is that as it remained clear the past summer, the Barça had too many economic resources for fichar, and there preferred to do with the services of Oriol Romeu, the one who arrived in return of less than 5 million euros.

The Barça simply could not advance by a big option for his pivote

The 30 'kilos' that asked the Italian group by Éderson, that now seems a 'bargain', simply do not hinder in the planning of a Barça that could not sell what believed and simply had to adapt to what the market offered him by 'swim', as in the case of the cessions of the Joaos or the signing 'free' of Ilkay Gündogan. The German arrived free, and in spite of his high index card, did not represent a so high investment like which demanded Éderson.

Now, the Atalanta prices to his player between the 45 and the 50 million euros and a lot of clubs of the Premier League already begin to posit like candidates to do with the pivote, perhaps no so creative with the balloon in the foot, but definitely with some physical dowries that serve him to keep the together blocks. These qualities precisely were the determinants in the victory in front of the Bayer Leverkusen in the final of the Europe League, and could also have been valuable for a Barça that happened all the course without a player of this profile in the field.
