Spanish professional football club FC Barcelona failed to recruit a promising player by 18 seconds.
According to ESPN, a sports channel on the 4th (Korean time), Barcelona could not submit the transfer documents for Julian Araujo (22, LA Galaxy) until the transfer market deadline on the 31st of last month. Barcelona football director Mateu Alemani missed the transfer deadline by 18 seconds due to a ‘system error’, but hoped the deal could be made. However, the International Football Federation (FIFA) did not allow this. 메이저놀이터
Araujo is a rightback who has gone through all age groups in the United States. After stepping on the first team stage in 2019, he digested a total of 107 official games (2 goals) and established himself as the main player for the LA Galaxy. Barcelona, which judged that defense reinforcement was necessary, reached an agreement to raise the transfer fee of LA Galaxy and Araujo to 4 million euros (5.4 billion won). However, the joys and sorrows were mixed with an 18-second difference.
According to local media, the document preparation process was delayed as the contract conditions changed. FIFA confirmed that the transfer of Araujo from LA Galaxy to Barcelona was not completed in accordance with the rules.
