Another great fail story on the last day of the market, which comes to us this time from Barcelona. After the passport theft in Bordeaux and the shipments of bad documents in Paris, here is the computer error that causes a transfer to fail for… 18 seconds. In any case, this is what the sporting director of the FC Barcelona Mateu Alemany, Wednesday evening, about the failed recruitment of the Mexican side of the Los Angeles Galaxy Julian Araujo.
“We did not arrive in time due to a computer error, we are trying to clarify this, explained the latter at the microphone of Movistar +, before the kick-off of the match between Barça and the Betis Sevilla. It’s probably because of the system, and since it’s 18 seconds, I don’t know what the FIFA. »
Zero recruits but Gavi finally registered
Alemany added that the young Julian Araujo “is a player who should come to strengthen Barcelona Athletic”, the Barça reserve team, coached by the Mexican Rafa Marquez. According to the Spanish press, the player of Los Angeles Galaxy could have served to compensate for the departure of the side Hector Bellerin (transferred to Sporting Lisbon).
Barça closed their winter transfer window on Tuesday evening and did not register any new players. He only registered his nugget Gavi, hitherto listed with the reserve team, within his first team. In addition to Bellerin, the Catalan club transferred the striker Memphis Depay at Atletico Madrid.
