CHANGE OF STRUCTURE IN THE 'SCOUTING'
Barça's strategy to break into the Brazilian market
Barça is aware that Brazilian football is the one that has produced the most talent in recent years. That is why it has evaluated a new way to get hold of some of its 'jewels'
The FC Barcelona does not have too financial margin after the investment of the Managerial Board with the 'crowbars' during the summer, what has converted the next market of winter in one vital to reinforce the staff of Xavi Hernández of face to the second half of the season. Nevertheless, there is a planning that is carrying out the club to achieve new pieces to future that can improve to a large extent to the first team.
The sportive direction is assuming new tactical thinking in the catchment of new talents, being the Brazilian market one of the big 'targets' that has the institution to short and average term. The changes began with the incorporation of Paulo Araújo to the area of 'scouting', a movement that will be essential to increase the tarpaulins and reduce the losses in the investment of talent.
The first step of the Portuguese executive has been to modify the structure to a more agile and dynamic to emulate the management of the Benfica, Port wine and Shakhtar Donetsk, those who have succeeded in his contractings in the market sudamericano. Besides, one of the immediate aims is that the managerial take in account that the weakened financial structure forces to take conclusive decisions with those players that have a positive register in the different mappings.
This leaves on the table the option to negotiate and 'tie' those promises that still are in growth like this can not give the jump to Barcelona until reaching the majority of age. For the culés is practically impossible to measure nowadays to Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester City and Real Madrid in signings already mature, what forces to the institution to be determinants when it present the opportunity of any young promise.
Endrick, far for the moment
A clear example that the plan of action of the Barça will suffer changes is the 'case Endrick', that to his 16 years already is showing that it is for big things. Clubs like PSG and Madrid already have him in looks it and will be very difficult that the Catalans go in in this bidding, taking into account that it was near at hand at the beginning of year when it still had not signed his professional agreement with Palmeiras.
Another case is the one of Andrey Santos, the pivote of Basque gives Range that is being protagonist in the Seleçao Sub-20. The Managerial Board did not move index card by him and finished renewing with the Brazilians, what could frustrate definitively his aspirations to achieve him if has a performance of high level in the next Sudamericano of Colombia. The Barcelona has to launch by those 'perlas' that already has in his diary the before possible, because afterwards his value of market increases and is impossible that compete economically with some institutions-been.
