Barça could face another disappointment in the transfer market if the sale of Frenkie de Jong is completed. With his departure, the Dutchman would join a list of incorporations that have failed in the club
The more than possible exit of the Frenkie of Jong of the FC Barcelona has in 'vilo' to all the Barcelona world. The Dutch arrived to the City Condal in 2019 like the big hope culé in the midfield, the attendant to handle the 'threads' of a medullary Catalan that was full of veterans in this moment. However, his performance from his 'landing' in the Camp Nou has been far to fulfil with what expected , and from the offices blaugranas would be working in closing his traspaso to the Manchester United. In case to concretise his incorporation to the 'network devils', Of Jong would join to a list of players that 'disappointed' during his stay in Can Barça.
Through the years, the barcelonistas have made a quantity of signings that did not finish of 'cuajar' in the team and went out by the rear door. In the season 2015-2016, for example, the culés hired to Aleix Vidal and Burn Turan. The first arrived to be the relief of Dani Alves in the right band, but never knew to justify the 17 millions that disbursed by him and went out by 9,3 million 3 years afterwards. By his part, the Turkish arrived like the 'star' of the Atleti to a Barça that paid 35 millions by him, although the injuries and his poor performance conditioned a 'adventure' that culminated with his exit to cost 0.
The sale of signings of the 2016-2017 was the most moved for the culés in the last years. However, any of the footballers hired during said market had a good go through the Camp Nou. Andre Gomes (37 millions, went out by 25), Jasper Cillesen (13 millions, went out by 35), Denis Suárez (3,5 millions, went out by 13), Lucas Digne (16,5 millions, went out by 20,2), Samuel Umtiti (25 millions, still is still in the team) and Paco Alcacer (30 millions, went out by 21) were the footballers that 'landed' in the City Condal during said campaign, happening 'without penalty neither glory' by Barcelona.
To the following year, the Barcelona did with the services of Gerard Deulofeu, by the one who paid 12 millions and sold by 13 a year afterwards; Yerri Mina, whose good performance in the World-wide allowed to recover the 12 millions invested in him and be traspasado by 30 millions; Nelson Semedo, bought by 35 millions and sold by 32; and finally, Philippe Coutinho. The Brazilian is, discutiblemente, the worst signing of the culés in the last 7 years, by his price and performance. The Catalans credited 135 million euros to the Liverpool to incorporate to the mediocampista, the one who never adapted to the team and finished going out by 20 millions to the Aston Villa.
Of more to less
In the campaign 2018-2019, the Barça did with the services of Arthur and Clément Lenglet. Both players burst into with strength in a principle and did with a place in the eleven initial of the Catalans. However, his provision went diluting with the happen of the time, 'pushing them' to the door of exit. The Brazilian was traspasado to the Juve by 76 millions, more than the double of the 31 that paid by him. By his part, the French is still in the square of Xavi, although it aims to an exit during the summer by much less of the 35 millions that cost him to the Barça.
Big names that 'disappointed'
Finally, in the season 2019-2020 the FC Barcelona fichó to two names of weight to elevate the quality of the staff. One of them is the already mentioned Frenkie of Jong, whose sale rondaría the 85 millions that paid by him. On the other hand, Antoine Griezmann did not find his place in the City Condal, and after having cost 120 millions, could go out by 40 'kilos' to the Atleti. Finally, the contractings of Braithwaite (18 millions) and Junior Firpo (20 millions) happened unobserved by the City Condal.
