The rise in budgets in European teams forced Barça in its day to bet on young signings, to detect future stars, and offer them long-term contracts. This year he maintains the same philosophy, and also with less money, which in some way has also caused a true diaspora in his quarry. The bet is two Madrid pivots Jaime Gallego and Javi Rodríguez, to replace French Fabregas. “I also came at the age of 21, although I had been in the French team since I was 18. I think it’s a commitment to the future of Barça”, commented the pivot in Madrid, already with his bags ready to play next season at the Hungarian Veszprem.
Laszlo Nagy’s Magyar team happens to be one of the greats in Europe that has been best strengthened, and not only with Fabregas, the best pivot in Europe, because it has also been Zoran Ilic (Hamburg), to Augustine Married (Melsungen), to Hugo Descart (Montpellier) and the Spanish goalkeeper Biosca (Wisla), for example.
Raúl González’s PSG has also made movements caused by the departures in his squad: first he was Ruben Marchan (Nantes), and to replace the giant Kristopans (Melsungen) has hired some of the best wingers of the Danish team, Jacob Holm, from Fuchse Berlin, plus Tonnesen (Pick Szeged) to add muscle to his defense.
The invention of Norwegian Kolstad, a team that intends to be one of the greats in Europe in two or three years, has taken Sander Sagosen, world star of Kiel, who returns home. He also returns to his country Niklas Landin, to the Danish Aalborg and leaves the German Kiel that is why he wants Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas (Barça) because the two compete to be the best goalkeeper in the world.
