Bara accelerates to close the signing of Ferran Torres. The Manchester City player will thus become the second Barça addition to the winter market, after returning to the club. Dani alves. The signing of the former Valencian player, who has already undergone medical examination in Barcelona, ​​has a fixed cost of 55 million euros and 10 more in a series of variables, such as being elected Baln de Oro, winning the Golden Boot or the Barcelona team winning. the Champions with more than 70% participation of the international footballer. Now, the club has to do what its football director has repeated so many times, Mateu alemany: let out before entering. Barcelona will pay those 55 million in four installments starting next June.

The salary limit now conditions the registration of the striker. The forced withdrawal of the Kun Agero due to his heart problems and the fact that the Argentine will finally resign his second year of contract have already made it easier for Bara to register Dani alves. The Brazilian will not be able to play the next game, against Mallorca, because the deadline to register new players in Spain opens on January 3. In the case of Ferran Torres, the player is in the final stretch of recovery from the fracture in his right foot that he suffered in the semifinals of the last edition of the League of Nations. The deadlines have been lengthened more than originally planned and everything indicates that it could be available to Xavi at the end of January. By then, the club must drop ballast.

Five names

Right now, there are five names that are on the exit ramp. The first is that of Yusuf demir. Barcelona, ​​finally, has decided not to make effective the option to buy the Austrian, which will be activated as soon as he plays 10 games as a Barcelona player (he has nine), and will end his transfer by Rapid Vienna. Several German teams have already shown interest in taking over his services.

Luuk de Jong, which reached the Barcelona discipline at the limit of the closing of the summer market, could end up in the ranks of Cádiz, in a three-way operation in which Sevilla also intervenes. Sergio Dest It is also in the window, with the intention of taking advantage of the good poster that the American still has. In recent weeks there has been speculation about the return to Ajax as a bargaining chip for Noussair Mazraoui, although Arsenal and Chelsea are also following in his footsteps. Bayern have never hidden their interest in recruiting him.

Exit Coutinho and Umtiti

The main names that the Bara will want to place in the market are those of Philippe Coutinho and Samuel Umtiti. Both are in the range of the highest chips in the workforce and have turned a deaf ear to the proposals to lower their respective salaries. Coutinho is the most expensive signing in the history of the Barcelona entity and his performance has not been, far from it, up to expectations. Despite this, his poster in the Premier, where he shone for five and a half seasons at Liverpool, is more or less intact. Arsenal is the one that seems best placed to take him, in the form of a loan, but there are other clubs, such as Newcastle, the new rich man in European football, or Everton, who have also taken positions to take over his services. The Brazilian soccer player, of course, is also interested in packing his bags. Right now he is a substitute and that determines, and a lot, his presence in the World Cup in Qatar next year. To do this, yes, you will have no other option but to adapt your millionaire income to the current reality of football.

In case of Umtiti it is also very painful for the Bara. During his first campaigns at the Camp Nou, the French center-back became a fundamental piece for the team and his progression caused the then president, Josep Maria Bartomeu, would sign you a multi-million dollar renovation. The defender, in 2018, decided to avoid going under the knife to solve some annoying problems in his left knee and be able to play the World Cup in Russia with the French team. The Gauls added their second world championship there, but the performance of the Barcelona defender was never the same as before.
