Barcelona January transfer window – ins and outs




There has been quite lot of changes for Barcelona this January. They have brought in Yerry Mina and Philippe Coutinho. This is great news! They also have Ousmane Dembele back which should give a good balance to the team. However Coutinho will not be able to play in the Champions League for Barcelona and he is tied up with Liverpool. But he can surely be of a big help to the team. With the season winding down and hoping Barcelona maintains some lenient space for the veterans of the club while they compete for the European title.

Yerry Mina can definitely become a stronghold for the future of the team. He is being paid a stated negotiated fee of € 12 million which he will do total justice for.

Who does not want to stay can leave Barca

There are also couple of high-earners that the club had to bid farewell to. This had to be done in order to trim on cost. Javier Mascherano was one of them who were given a warm farewell. He left to China and Arda Turan has gone to Basaksehir Istanbul for the rest of the contract.

Another change is Rafinha who has gone temporarily with Inter and Gerard Deulofeu has returned to the Premier League with Watford.

There are more of ins and outs in Barca B.

Among the players who are in are Christian Rivera from Eibar on loan, Martin Hongla from Granada on loan, Ballou Jean-Yves from Montreal Impact, Marcus McGuane fron Aresenal and Nahuel Leiva from Villarreal on loan.

The players who have been given a farewell by Bacelona FC are Choco Lozano to Girona, Rafa Mujica to Cornella on loan, Wilfrid Kaptoum to Real Betis, Santi Bueno to Peraladav- Girona B on loan. Moises Delgado, Fali, David Concha and Jesus Alfaro have been released.

Better than last summer

This transfer window has been a great one compared to the confusion that happened during the summer. There is tremendous hope that Yerry Mina will be a part of the defence in the future. There is also a great anticipation that Philippe Coutinho will take the team a level up.

The outs are equally important as high wage earners like Arda Turan and Javier Mascherano are out of the wage bill. Gerard Deulofeu and Rafinha are also going to spend the remaining season somewhere else, however they will be back during the summer.

The wage bill is surely high for obvious reasons. Having the best players costs a high price. When the priority is excellence in sports and economic rigour

The wage bill is high, yes, because having the players we have is not cheap. Our priority is sports excellence and economic rigour. These both aspects are very much interlinked and equally important.

The club does accept criticism, however they make sure that the players perform well and fit well in the club.

This January transfer window which everyone around the world was waiting for is indeed a good job and satisfactory.
