Luuk de Jong signs for Barça with suspense and nocturnality

FC Barcelona consummated its last signing of the summer at night and almost treachery. And is that Until 3.21 am, LaLiga did not give permission to accept the registration of the Dutch striker, Luuk de Jong, as a new player in the Blaugrana squad. And that the contract documentation had arrived on time, before 12 o’clock in the morning, at the LaLiga headquarters, but the need to supervise and check all sections of the contract, especially the relationship with the player’s record, delayed the validation process. It must be remembered that Barcelona has had to do real financial juggling to be able to register its new signings, as happened with Memphis, which coincided with the salary cut of Pique, and with him Kun, with reductions of Busquets and Alba.

Thus, Luuk de Jong lands at FC Barcelona as yielded one year and with a non-mandatory purchase option. The Blaugrana club also takes charge of the entirety of its file.

Remember that De Jong is a express request of Ronald Koeman, which prioritized the need for a 9 to reinforce the workforce. The Dutch coach knows his compatriot perfectly from his stage as coach ‘oranje’ and considers him an ideal attacker to cover some of the profiles that the team did not have.

In fact, De Jong is right now Barcelona’s second top scorer in European competitions, with 28 goals in 83 games, only surpassed by Argentine Kun Agüero, who has 63 goals in 110 European games.
