With almost 10 discharges in the summer, it was expected that not all of them would turn out as expected, although at the Camp Nou there are several recent transfers that have turned out very well.
After one of the greater markets of summer in the recent history of the FC Barcelona, has arrived the half of the season officially afterwards that the culés completed the 19 days of League the past Wednesday. The ones of Xavi defeated to the Betis like visitor and completed the half of a course that did not begin so solid but that little by little has put numbers of very high level.
In addition to the clear work of the technical body, this success in LaLiga and also in the Supercopa and the Glass of Rey has been based in an eleven headline that every time is more consolidated. In defence Andres Christensen and Jules Koundé left backwards his physical problems of the first part of the season and have turned into an authentic wall, beside Araújo, Balde and of course, Ter Stegen.
The Danish arrived free from Chelsea and happened to be an interesting bet of market to an authentic bargain with the performance that has deployed in these first months like culé. By his part Koundé himself arrived with a lot of more chevrons, although like head office, but the season has carried him to be to the right side title of a Barça that every time defends better.
If we speak of signings of summer logically comes us to the mind the name of Robert Lewandowski. The forward arrived from the Bayern and only in League, in spite of losing several days, already adds 14 goals and besides has been present also in the assistances. In the Glass and Supercopa also did present, although certainly in the Champions League remained a bit more in debt.
To these three names of a very high level add him the ones of Raphinha and Marcos Alonso, those who arrived by distinct reasons and economic conditions, but so much the extreme like the side have not finished to show his best version. However, in the case of the Spanish himself that answered like head office of emergency when it was required and the Brazilian already raised the hand to replace to Dembélé with solvency after the injury of the French.
Those that still have to show
Finally there are three names that up to now have remained to have to, although all in distinct measure and context. Franck Kessié has not been able to with the high competition that there is in the Barcelona midfield, although in the dispatches remains the tranquility that did not pay traspaso by him and is a footballer that in the rotation contributes a physicist that many times is necessary in the second parts of the parties.
By his part, Pablo Tower arrived to the Camp Nou like a bet to future and up to now has showed good ways, but his minutes have been very limited. In a stage to deliver notes, surely Héctor Bellerín would be the only suspended, having to even leave of the Barça to half of season to the not going in in the consideration of Xavi only five months after his arrival.
