FC Barcelona may fail to re-sign Lionel Messi this summer, but they are determined to find ways to reduce their wages and raise funds. With just a few hours left in the transfer window, it has been confirmed that Blograna has accepted an offer of پانچ 25 million (30 30 million or .7 25.7 million) in bonuses in addition to 25 25 million for Emerson Royal.
The Brazilian international arrived at Camp Nou earlier this summer, when Barcelona exercised their right to withdraw from the co-ownership deal. The right wing, however, barely reached an agreement with the Catalan giants before sending them to the Premier League to join Spurs.
Arsenal had previously offered 10 million euros in cash deals in addition to one player, including Hector Ballerin, but Barcelona turned down the offer throughout the summer after making it clear that they would not accept the offer. If they do not match the price, they do not intend to leave any player.
Barcelona could be trapped for cash, but instead of selling cheaply, they stopped players like Antoine Griezmann. After failing to offload their earners, they are now. Glad to accept Spurs’ offer. For Emerson, at least at the cost of his player.
Initially, the Premier League side offered Serge Aurier for only 15 million euros, but Barcelona will not give up. In a last minute move, Tottenham extended their offer and Barcelona are finally satisfied. Emerson will now travel to England to complete his medical treatment and officially sign the contract.
Nono Esprito has Santo Emerson firmly in his plans, while Barcelona manager Ronaldo Cuomo is happy to leave the defender with his eyes on strengthening his attack. Even without Lionel Messi, there are plenty of forwards on the Barcelona roster. However, newcomer Sergio Aguero has yet to fit in due to an injury that has seen him on the sidelines for another two months.
Meanwhile, both Osman Dembele and teenager Hass Ansoufati have yet to return from serious injuries last season. With less than a day left in the transfer window, it remains to be seen whether John Lipporta will be able to terminate his last-minute deal to strengthen his forward line.
