Luuk de Jong signs for Barça with suspense and nocturnality

At 3.21 am, LaLiga gave the OK to the transfer of the Dutch forward to the Blaugrana club after verifying that he was adapting to the financial 'fair play'.


FC Barcelona consummated its last signing of the summer at night and almost treachery. And it is that until 3.21 am, LaLiga did not give permission to accept the registration of the Dutch striker, Luuk de Jong, as a new player in the Blaugrana squad. And that the documentation of the contract had arrived on time, before 12 o'clock in the morning, at the headquarters of LaLiga, but the need to supervise and check all the sections of the contract, especially the relations with the player's file, they delayed the validation process. It must be remembered that Barcelona has had to make real financial juggling to be able to register its new signings, as happened with Memphis, which coincided with the Piqué salary cut, and with Kun, with the reductions of Busquets and Alba.

Thus, Luuk de Jong lands at FC Barcelona on loan for one year and with a non-mandatory purchase option. The Blaugrana club also takes charge of the entirety of its file.

It should be remembered that De Jong is an express request from Ronald Koeman, who prioritized the need for a 9 to reinforce the squad. The Dutch coach knows his compatriot perfectly from his stage as coach 'oranje' and considers him an ideal attacker to cover some of the profiles that the team did not have.In fact, De Jong is right now Barcelona's second top scorer in European competitions, with 28 goals in 83 games, surpassed only by Argentine Kun Agüero, who has 63 goals in 110 European games.
