This summer, FC Barcelona saw Georginio Wijnaldum pass under his nose. If a midfielder was wanted, no one came. And yet…

Despite more than limited means, FC Barcelona had some ideas this summer to strengthen. And Ronald Koeman was notably awaiting the arrival of Georginio Wijnaldum , him who was free after having reached the end of his contract at Liverpool . However, while the Dutchman seemed promised at Barca, it was finally to PSG that he put his bags down. A blow for the Blaugrana, who tried to raise their heads by going for another reinforcement in the midfield.

Renato Sanches is close to Barça!

These searches ultimately led to nothing for Joan Laporta and no midfielder has joined FC Barcelona . However, the solution could have been called Renato Sanches . Indeed, during an interview with L'Equipe, the Portuguese LOSC revealed that he was close to joining Barça this summer and that it had finally failed because of his injury. “This summer, a lot of clubs called Lille. And then there was this injury and I knew I would stay here. Since then, I have been focusing on Lille (…) If I thought about leaving Lille before this injury? Yes. For FC Barcelona? Yes. What kept me from going to Barca? I think it's the injury. At first it was a shock, but then you put it into perspective. Football is all about ups and downs and I'm used to it. I stopped thinking about interested clubs and the rest to focus on recovery, “said Renato Sanches.
