The ups and downs of Barcelona this summer

 

The F.C. Barcelona is a very meticulous team to choose their new signings and to let go those who no longer count on the plans of the club; let’s review what have been the changes during this past summer of signings and meanwhile, make the purchase of tickets online to take advantage of the best offers.

Your new DT

Before talking about the changes that have been undergoing the runner-up of the Santander League, it must be said that the board of the Camp Nou has appointed a new coach.

It is Ernesto Valverde, the 53-year-old Spanish coach who trained until a few months ago at Athletic Club, and also spent time in the middle of Greek football and with clubs Valencia and Espanyol.

Now, Valverde has come to supplant Luis Enrique (who has gone to Sporting de Portugal) on the bench and has not hesitated in his strategy for this new season. Let us see your changes.

Nélson Semedo

Semedo has arrived from S.O.L. Benfica; the Portuguese defender of 23 years cost the team 30 million euros.

Gerard Deulofeu

Deulofeu was formed in the Masia del Barcelona when he was still very young; then played with Everton and Sevilla and last season was next to the A.C. Milan.

Deulofeu seems to be for two seasons at the Camp Nou after the club paid his option to buy 12 million euros.

Thomas Vermaelen

Vermaelen is another who has come to the plans of Valverde; from the A.S. Roma, where he was on loan, the Belgian defender has returned to the Barca team this season. It is necessary to remember that the soccer player already had a contract with the Boat for 5 years.

Paulinho

The Brazilian left the Chinese league to sign this season with Messi’s team for a transfer of 40 million euros and with a contract whose termination would be around 120 million.

 

Ousmane Dembele

The 20-year-old forward has left Borussia Dortmund to strengthen Barcelona’s squad for nothing more than 150 million euros.

The casualties

Among the casualties are Cristian Tello who has gone to Betis, Jordi Masip to Valladolid, Samper who was loaned to Las Palmas, Douglas loaned to Benfica, Munir El Haddadi loaned to Alavés and Marlon Santos also loaned to Nice.

And, of course, the most controversial and costly, Neymar Jr.’s departure to Paris Saint-Germain after a transfer of 222 million euros, which has made him the most expensive player in the history of football.

The departure of the Brazilian was not expected and has left an unresolved problem in the field of play since his absence is remarkable and Valverde has had to contrive to balance his squad.

Do not wait to buy tickets online before they run out and get ready for the new days of the F.C. Barcelona this season.
