The July market, in Spain, began on July 1 and will close on August 31. Two whole months to sign in which the big clubs of Europe move. There is the Juventus, with its more than 105 million euros by Cristiano Ronaldo. Or the Athletic, with Lemar surpassing 70 in his most expensive signing in history.
And in the two great Spanish football? Barcelona and Real Madrid have taken totally opposite paths. They are the two sides of the coin that, in addition, have changed the destination. Now it's Barça who pays and pays and Madrid who also pays, but much less. And sell, which makes having a positive balance. This was the opposite a decade ago, when the whites spent a lot of money to rebuild a totally sunken team and with the Catalans pulling the quarry with a very fruitful batch.
The data is clear. The Barcelona, in the last four full seasons and the beginning of the present (where 66 million have already been spent on two second-tier players such as Lenglet and Arthur), is the fourth European team with the worst balance, with 748.74 million euros spent and 399.4 entered, resulting in a negative balance of 349.34. Only surpasses Manchester City of Guardiola (-644.83), United de Mourinho (-566.09) and PSG (-434.8), according to data from Trasnfermarkt collected by The world.
On the other side, as far from these equipment as it is placed on the pum 223, is Real Madrid, which has a positive balance. The club chaired by Florentino Pérez only spent 371.25 million euros in this period of time, for the 426.85 that entered. A clear trend that is not a consequence of a single year, which would be a 'cheating' trial, but of five years at the end of this period.
And not only in figures is the huge difference between Real Madrid and Barcelona. Time has shown that, in addition to investing less and entering more, the white club scores better. There are the examples of Keylor Navas, Kovacic, Marco Asensio, Toni Kroos or repurchases as profitable as those of Lucas Vázquez, all of them players who came to Real Madrid in this period of time (since 13/14) and ended up being 'chollos'.
It can only be said that Madrid failed in the signings of James Rodriguez, which in one year will be his property unless Bayern makes the purchase option, Lucas Silva, a footballer whose injuries prevented him from demonstrating his worth, Danilo, which nevertheless was sold for only 1.5 million euros less than what it cost and that of Theo Hernández, still waiting to know if it really works for the club.
But Barcelona's is very different and much worse. The Catalan club puts its players on sale shortly after signing them, showing his mistake. It is the current example of Yerry Mina and André Gomes. The Colombian joined him only six months ago and they do not want him anymore. Portuguese, two summers ago and everything that played was a disaster. Ruinous transfers that cost 12 and 38 million respectively: 50 in total.
They are not the only ones. In order of signings, Barça was wrong in many signings. By Mathieu They paid 20 million and it did not work. By Vermaelen one less, 19, and could barely play for his numerous injuries. By Douglas four and the Brazilian soccer player ended up being a joke on social networks. By Arda Turan 34 million euros. By Aleix Vidal, now also for sale, 17. Por Paco Alcácer, who seems to have forgotten the goal, 30. Por Deulofeu, repurchased, 12 million and then finish removing it. By Semedo, marked in the culé shipwreck in Rome, another 30. And for Dembélé, which still has to wait a while, 105 more variables that reach 150.
Removing the figures of the French footballer, since it can not be considered still a waste, the club adds 166 million waste, a badly used money that ended up in poorly chosen players, most of them outside, the biggest symptom that it is Barcelona itself that recognizes the error.
