Barcelona presented to the League yesterday the medical reports that ensure that Ousmane Dembélé will be six months off after the surgery he underwent last Tuesday to correct his proximal tendon of the femoral biceps. A medical commission will now have 72 hours to decide whether the condition is classified as a long-term injury (greater than five to months), taking into account that a similar injury to the other leg in 2017 only kept him three and a half months off. The approval of the doctors would enable Barcelona to sign outside the winter market to a player who replaces the Frenchman. A patch that shows the null sports planning of the technical secretariat headed by Eric Abidal and an emergency (although he has 15 days to sign, the intention is that he is available to play against Eibar) that generates a huge controversy in the culé environment .
The image offered at Villamarín squeaks, with only three players from the first team on the bench. Unfit for a club that wants to win the Champions League but to which the economic urgencies have pushed it to prioritize income and lighten its salary mass with the assignments of Carles Aleñá, Wagué and Todibo and the undercover transfers of Carles Pérez and Abel Ruiz, two players, the latter, which could solve the problem that Setién now has after the injuries of Dembélé and Suárez and that no one in the sports management knew how to intuit.
«As a canterano I am, they do not give the opportunities they deserve to La Masía. I feel bad because I expected more confidence in the quarry. There is more to gain than having patience, ”Marc Cucurella openly lamented yesterday, who will visit the Camp on Saturday defending the Getafe shirt. Precisely, in the team of Bordalás milita Ángel Rodríguez, one of the strikers who are on pole to reinforce the culé attack during the 14 games that will remain for Barça in the League (the new reinforcement cannot be registered in the Champions League). Ten million clause, 9 goals and two assists in 20 league games played are his cover letter, in addition to the facilities that will put Angel Torres. “I can’t deny a kid to go to a big team like Barça,” admits the president of the Madrid club.
In full debate about the danger of repeating a new “Boateng case” (Barça paid two million euros to Sassuolo last year for his assignment during the winter market and his contribution was testimonial), Abidal manages other names outside of Angel .
Lucas Pérez (Alavés) and Loren (Betis) complete the list of applicants after William José was discarded because of his high price (70 million) and his status as an extra-community. Players who in normal conditions would never have signed for Barcelona but who turn into a smokescreen so dense that they cover up the shame of an ominous planning. .
