FC Barcelona The difficulties of the culs to close hires
n n summer would not be a summer without the typical event surrounding a signing. It is part of the summer landscape, as well as beach umbrellas or crowded terraces. At the Bara they know very well what the topic is about. His record is full of attempts to undertake signings -some with success and others not- that gave people something to talk about for weeks .
The two proper names for the culs in the market code this summer they are Lautaro Martnez and Miralem Pjanic . In the case of the Argentine, everything seems to be an economic matter. The Culs know that they will have to scratch their pockets to take one of the strikers of the moment in Europe. As much as the 111 million euros that appear in its termination clause . As for Pjanic, Juventus was willing to assess a barter with Bara for Arthur, but the Brazilian is not willing. Thus, the Catalans will have to find an alternative if they really want to sign the Croatian.
In any case, what is once again revealed is that it is difficult for Bara to close operations. There are many examples of soccer players who escaped him due to his financial difficulties. Others ended up arriving in the end, but after occupying the covers of sports newspapers for weeks.
The most recent example of one that escaped due to lack of liquidity was Rodrigo from Valencia. The striker was presented as the most appealing option for the Blaugrana in his attempt to replace the injured Luis Surez . They were not able to undertake their hiring and had to go for Martin Braithwaite .
The latter was also a signing with a crumb, since the Legans were left without strikers for the decisive stretch of the championship, after that his two attackers, Youssef En-Nesyri and Braithwaite left the club.
What to say about the operation Griezmann who was involved in controversy on all sides. First, for the televised pumpkins of the first year, with the famous documentary The decision . Second, because of the Attic's claim for an amount of money other than the Gallic clause.
The signing of Frenkie de Jong whom the Bara managed to convince about the horn, with an express trip by Josep Maria Bartomeu to Amsterdam.
The list is long, but the conclusion is always the same. When a club is willing to scratch its pocket everything is easier . And if that is enough, then the pressure that the players themselves can exert helps, as happened at the time with Coutinho in Dembl . That is, in both cases the Bara had to pay more than 100 kilos.
