The Barça "presumes" of last day

The departures of Ilaix, Rey Manaj, Emerson and Griezmann were joined by the signing of Luuk De Jong. The last operation closed at 3:30 in the morning.


The FC Barcelona offices fumed on the last day of the summer transfer market, and it was not until well after 00:00 on August 31 that they were unable to formalize the last arrival. From 18:00 hours and until well into the morning, the movements of the Blaugrana team on 'Deadline Day' resulted in a total of four starts and one incorporation. That is why the CM of the culé painting has wanted to remember them in a tweet / breakdown that perfectly illustrates everything described. A madness according to August 31 that time will determine if it has been for the better.

Although his departure was an open secret, Ilaix Moriba would not officially pack his bags until 6:20 p.m. on the last day. The FC Barcelona youth squad sets course for RB Leipzig in a transfer that will leave € 16M in the box, plus another 6M in variables. Likewise, Barcelona reserves 10% of a future sale of the player. Almost half an hour later the departure of the also footballer from Barcelona B Rey Manaj would become official, this time on loan to the Italian Spezia. Barça receives 300,000 euros for the loan of the Albanian striker, who will also have a non-compulsory purchase option of € 2.7M. The last to go out throughout the Emerson Royal afternoon. The Brazilian, recovered this same summer after his time at Real Betis, barely wore the Blaugrana shirt in the three LaLiga games played to date. The agreement reached by Barcelona and Tottenham at around 7:30 p.m. consists of a € 25M transfer.

But the best of the day was yet to come. A quadruple movement between FC Barcelona, Atlético de Madrid, Chelsea –Saúl Ñíguez would arrive in London from the Madrid team– and Sevilla FC would cause the return of Antoine Griezmann to the mattress team and the arrival of Sevillista Luuk De Jong at Camp Nou. After two seasons and three games, the French striker returns to Atleti on loan until 2022, date from which the rojiblancos will have to buy Griezmann for € 40M. The departure of the French footballer forced to reinforce a rather diminished front, and the one chosen by the Catalans would be the Dutch striker from Sevilla. De Jong, a signing that according to Barça finished closing at 3:30 in the morning, signs for a year on loan and the Blaugranas will have a non-mandatory purchase option to take over his services.
