With Vidal in & Vidal out, what's Barca business like this summer?
- The club has replaced the four players who have departed with an equal number
- Barca's net spend is more than decent for a top club
Eric Abidal has been in the new role of a sporting director for not so long but he's already made an impact by bringing in a few quality names. Barca deals so far.
Paulinho to Guangzhou Evergrande (loan with €50m to be paid)
Lucas Digne to Everton (€20m + €1.5m in variables)
Gerard Deulofeu to Watford (€13m + €4m)
Aleix Vidal to Sevilla (€8.5m + €2m)
Andres Iniesta to Vissel Kobe (free) ?
Douglas to Sivasspor (loan)
Malcom from Bordeaux (€41m + €1m)
Clement Lenglet from Sevilla (€36m)
Arthur from Gremio (€31m + €9m)
Arturo Vidal from Bayern Munich (€18m + €3m)
?NET SPEND: -€34.5m
Are we doing just fine with Abidal?
