FC Barcelona closed a winter market for history, in which they managed to complete four new incorporations that will serve as important pieces inside Xavi Hernández’s scheme. Now, although they are hierarchy players who will contribute to the imbalance for the team’s new offensive, not all of them will be able to register for the Europe League, whereby between Dani Alves, Ferran Torres, Adama Traoré and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, it will be necessary to stay out of European competition.
And it is that according to article 46 of the rule of UEFA, only clubs will be able to register three new players from the winter window. This is how one of the four new faces that will come to life inside the Camp Nou will have to leave the international tournament. Barça will make their debut on Thursday, February 17, ahead of Napoli, after two decades without knowing another international competition that did not go to the Champions League.
This same Wednesday is the deadline that the directive of the entity will have to be able to make a decision concerning its footballers. In the first analysis, everything indicates that it will be Adama who will remain outside. Xavi doesn’t have much in reserve for his side, and Dani Alves, despite being 38, continues to be a solid and experienced bet for the saga. Moreover, the 55 million paid to the club by Ferran Torres ensure him a ticket, equal to Aubameyang, the one who has the goal and who is essential to the condales.
Moreover, Ferran Jutglà and ‘Ez’ Abde would also remain absent. Although they still have the file of the branch, they still do not take two years inside the club, by which in case of registering them, it would be explained as new signings. It is an even more noticeable drop for the master, the one who appreciated the good performances of the two youngsters and was a spectator of the good exercise they had in the first half of the campaign.
Close the qualifiers in Catalonia
The native of Terrassa knows that he must ensure his ticket for the eighth of the League Europe in the party to go to the arches of the Cité Sportive Joan Gamper. The last visits to Italy have not been good for the blaugranas, being this defeat (3-0) against Rome in the Champions League the most painful in recent years. The new pieces can bring constant danger in the rival arc, and a solid approach past the Neapolitans can secure a good advantage in the corner at the Diego Armando Maradona stadium.
