It is intractable. Leo Messi has once again taken a step forward. But this time not only in the sports, also in the offices.
The Argentine Star is more involved than anyone in the making of the staff of FCBarcelona. After getting to be the highest paid player in the world without discussion for some time, in his latest renovation he expressed other needs.
Messi transmitted both to PresidentBartomeu and to the leadership responsible for the sport and executive management of the club that they were doing some things wrong. Many Signings did not work.
The crack Rosario wanted to take the winch by the horns. Help sign players with whom he and his teammates feel comfortable. At Barça , they give up.There is no other.
The signings of Messi
Being the best footballer in the world grants many rights. And the truth is that the signings of Messi are resulting in this course. The Argentine star askedPaulinho and Coutinho.
The former Guangzhou Evergrandeplayer has uncovered himself as a lethal goalscorer: eight goals in 31 games . And although his football does not end up fitting the Barça style , he has been key to getting the Liga back on track .
Coutinho, on the other hand, has just landed. But his profile does fit perfectly with the style. It's costing him something to play alongside Iniesta and cover the right wing for two reasons.
The first is that he feels more comfortable on the left, his more usual profile. The second is that his tendency to go to the middle collides with his compatriotPaulinho, with whom he usually coincides. This has generated that in the last matches a small funnel is created for both.
Dembelé and Semedo worry
But, obviously, these two hirings are much better looking than the signings ofDembelé, Semedo or Deulofeu. The latter has already left for Watford.
Neither signings of previous courses have finished of set: Arda Turan -fuera, although it was also request of the Argentine-, Aleix Vidal, André Gomes,Paco Alcácer or Lucas Digne.
Most of these players are now on the line.Messi has already sent a notice to sailors: if they do not wake up, they better leave in June.
The four indicated by Messi
For Barça it is not easy to find a way out.Few clubs want to pay for them or assume their high salaries. But right now, several are on Messi's blacklist .
The main ones mentioned are Gomes,Vidal, Digne and Alcácer. Players who have not proved to be up to Barça level .
And there is another football player warned: Semedo. He has just landed and patience is needed with him, but SergiRoberto has shown himself to be very superior, as was the case with Vidal andDouglas.
Dembelé, for his part, continues counting for the coaching staff. Although it is not ruled out that it enters in some operation of summer. Messi and Luis Suárez do not have them all with him.
