The summer market has left many movements and even some really surprising decisions. Barcelona is one of those teams that has caused astonishment, although not exactly for the better. The exits that he has made have been highly questioned and even the protagonists themselves have left messages for the board: the cases start from what happened with Lionel Messi to the last exit, that of Miralem Pjanic.
On the balance sheet, Barcelona has sold more than it bought and that is positive for economic stability, especially if one takes into account that it got rid of at least three important contracts, including the one that demanded the most money, that of Lionel Messi . However, the arrivals have not been the best and, certainly, the departures of the footballers were not on the best terms.
The most controversial departures from Barcelona
- Miralem Pjanic: Pjanic's questioning goes directly to the coach, who never gave him the opportunities he asked for. A back door exit to Turkey's Besiktas will give him minutes, but it's just not what he would have wanted.
- Ilaix Moriba: The inconveniences between Moriba and Barcelona reached a limit point with the non-renewal. Moriba did not want to continue at Barça and the board did everything possible to keep him, but in the end he ended up giving in to his request and agreed to let him go to RB Leipzig.
- Emerson Royal: Emerson was only 90 days in Barcelona. He bought it from Betis and, at the end of the market, he sold it to Tottenham. Is it what the player really wanted? No.
- Antoine Griezmann: The most surprising exit of the last day of the market. Barcelona put his name on the table with the intention of taking Joao Félix, but he did not succeed.
- Lionel Messi: The most painful exit for the entire world of football. Messi was Barcelona and Barcelona was Messi. President Joan Laporta explained that his departure was due to the inability to pay his contract, while Leo revealed that they only made him one offer, which he accepted and never made another to try to accommodate numbers.
