Ronald Koeman initiated the season with a quite distinct staff to which fracasó estrepitosamente in the previous campaign. The FC Barcelona 2020-21 has had numerous low and until four new signings -Francisco Trincao, Pedri, Miralem Pjanic and Sergiño Dest- for maquillar to the team, but finally the directive could not give him to his new technician two needs that he considered basic.

The first was the one of Eric García (Manchester City) to reinforce the central axis of the defence, that only has to Gerard Hammered, Clément Lenglet and Ronald Araújo to cover it taking into account that Samuel Umtiti does not explain for Ronald Koeman. The second was the one of Mephis Depay (Olympique of Lyon) to reinforce the position of '9', that has in Martin Braithwaite to the only specialist of the staff since Luis Suárez left .

So much the central Catalan like the Dutch forward wished to dress of Barcelona and even had a draft agreement to sign by the FC Barcelona before the closing of market, but was not possible. The club rowed until the last hour of the last day to draft them and content like this the requests of Ronald Koeman, but neither the Manchester City yielded with the traspaso of Eric García neither Ousmane Dembélé decided to leave to do him hollow to Memphis Depay.

In spite of these two failures in the market of signings, the FC Barcelona has not forgotten , neither much less, of any of the two. In fact, in the club have clear that will go back to the load the next month of January and that will try to bring them when it reopen the window of traspasos to give him to Ronald Koeman a joy of face to the second half of the season.

Agreement for ficharles to cost zero

So much Eric García like Memphis Depay follow being totally decided to fichar by the FC Barcelona and have clear that will go back to try it the next month of January. It will be then when Manchester United and Olympique of Lyon will have the last opportunity of not losing to both players free, since both finish agreement in June of 2021 and, if they do not arrive to the Camp Nou in winter to low cost, will do it in summer entirely free.

For the club, both players are important. Eric García formed in the Masia and now, with 19 years, has gone back an important player for Pep Guardiola in the Manchester City, by what considers him a codiciada piece of future. Memphis Depay, of 26 years, is a big opportunity of market by his contractual situation and Ronald Koeman is his main valedor, since it considers that his versatility would allow him play of '9' or in the band.
