Although you might not have been able to imagine it in 2010, when, at the age of 12, he left school Barcelona, In Buenos Aires, who had recruited him after discovering him in his reservoir The birth lasted a few days The Masia So he knew his methodology; the truth was that he was going to build a career Nahuel Molina, since he broke out into a giant as a child, would zigzag around Camp Nou several more times. The last one is this summer.
It happened the same way two years ago when Juventus, Atalanta, and Chelsea competed with Atlético for the services of the winger with the soul of a goalscorer and the brains of a 10-man assistant who stood out during the season. Udinese Barcelona would now think about it again as World Champions to bridge the emptiness that has weighed on him since the first goodbye Alves.
However, the economic problems that have rocked the Barça organization recently have been the biggest obstacle with which it has encountered Mateu Alemany When he reviewed the Argentine’s situation and realized that he was unable to take part in the bid that Atlético would win in the end, the new management in the sports directorate Culé would encounter the same problem.
Molina became irreplaceable last season after being the most used player under Simeone (He even played more minutes than the goalkeeper Cloud or the star Griezmann) and underlined his importance in Atlético’s attack with a series of goals that are unique for a team (only in the Rojiblancos’ last 14 games). Antoine with seven and Morata with six, surpassing his five goals), in Barcelona they had no doubt about the man who could fulfill this wish, Xavi, to have two guarantees once and for all.
No offer option
So beforehand, I’m breaking off In the last section of the market appeared the first route explored in the Camp Nou, that of Molina, for which Bayern Munich already had what Juventus would have returned for if they had sold Churchjj Vlahovic. Even though they were aware that their 90-kilo clause It was completely unaffordable for their coffers; their salary was right, because even though he has a World Cup star on his chest and is now considered one of the three best right-backs in the world, he reckons he is among the lowest positions on the Metropolitano staff pay scale, although Atlético had expressed its intention to adapt him to his role on the field at the end of last year without this verbal commitment being reflected in his contract.
With the salary within his means, Barcelona’s strategy is tied hand and foot to, yes, executing one Offer to Atlético as a consequence of the problems with fair play He had to ask what financial situation was suffocating him and ask Andrea Bertha to select some of the players he had declared transferable. However, since the Italian is only involved in the search for a 5, there would be no room for such a suggestion The signature of that great wish, named Molina, would disappear for the second time.
