“Next week we will announce new additions for the first team”. During a long press conference this Friday, Barcelona President Joan Laporta set the trend for this summer transfer window. It must be said that even if there are big files to manage, starting with Lionel Messi and the coaching position for the moment still occupied by Ronald Koeman, there have been big advances behind the scenes.
Thus, as explained by various Spanish media such as AS or RAC 1, the schedule for the week is going to be busy in Barcelona, and fans will know many of their new players by next Sunday. First of all, the Kun Agüero, who should have his medical check-up on Monday. It remains to be seen if the formalization of the signing of his contract will be made before his departure with the Argentine selection.
€ 9 million in transfer fees
Eric Garcia, who has already confirmed his future arrival in Barcelona via social networks, will already be introduced as a new Barcelona player on Tuesday, with the traditional press conference and the juggling session on the Camp Nou lawn. . Like his Argentinian teammate, he arrives free of any contract from Manchester City and with rather low emoluments.
Other signatures should then be officially confirmed. That of Georginio Wijnaldum, who will also arrive free, his lease with Liverpool expiring in June. Then, the fourth reinforcement of this first week of June will be Emerson, the only one for which the leaders of the third of the last Liga will have to put their hands in their pockets. They will thus spend 9 million euros to buy the other half of his rights at Betis, but the Brazilian right-back could be sold in the process. The press releases will rain this week!
