- title and reconstruction The League of the resurrection of Barcelona
There is no calm for Barcelona, much less for Joan Laporta, which continues to lose important executives while external advisers, family members and agents continue to take positions. Two days after the first football team was proclaimed league champions at Cornell, and 14 days after mateu alemanyfootball director, will announce his departure, who now voluntarily takes the exit door is Jordi Cruyff. The sports director, unlike Alemany, concluded his contract on June 30. But after taking a few days of reflection after his area was left without a head and already aware that whoever will take the reins in the construction of the new project will be the former Brazilian soccer player and now representative decorationCruyff has preferred not to delay his decision any longer.
The son of the Barça legend met this morning with Laporta to convey it to him despite the fact that the president wanted him to continue forming part of the structure and had let him know so. Later, the club issued an official statement in which it appealed to the “desire to undertake new professional projects” to argue its departure after two seasons of work that have ended with the Barcelona League title after four years of drought.
Barcelona, as was the case with Mateu Alemany, assures that Jordi Cruyff will offer his “maximum collaboration” in closing the pending operations of the summer market. Some of them, such as the Athletic center-back Iigo Martinez, they are already agreed. Others, like that of the German midfielder from Manchester City llkay Gndogan, which is also ending its contract, are directed in the absence of agreeing on the salary to be collected. In any case, the Barça club intends to fill in the next market the hole left by Sergio Busquets as midfielder –Martin ZubimendiReal Sociedad midfielder, is the priority of xavi hernndezdespite the fact that the Portuguese agent jorge mendes Squeeze so that the position is for your represented rben neves-; the always neglected plot of the right-back, with the Argentine john foyth another year as an aspirant; a center forward who can offer replacements to Lewandowski –aubameyang intends to return, even more so with Deco in charge of operations; and, above all, there remains to be an offer that he can accept Leo Messi and to make you move away from the siren songs of Saudi Arabia.
In any case, Laporta now has a free hand to incorporate Deco, for whom “the role of Txiki Begiristain” of his first presidential term – as he stated last Monday in an interview on TV3 – and that he has already held meetings with the leadership to discuss the future.
Last Saturday, on the eve of the duel at Cornell against Espanyol in which Barcelona would settle the title, Xavi was full of praise for Jordi Cruyff for his key role in reshaping the team: “I have tremendous confidence in him. He is a very loyal, very valid, transcendental and very important person. He has helped me a lot.”
It will be up to the Barcelona coach, then, to deal with his former teammate Deco when he can make it official that he is breaking ties with his representation agency, which is the one that led to the arrival of the winger. raphinha to the azulgrana club a year ago.
Not even the joy unleashed through the streets of Barcelona during the massive parade last Monday appeases a club where the doors keep turning.
