The name of Emerson Aparecido Leite de Souza Junior (14-1-1999) begins to sound loud in the office of Barça’s technicians. Known as Emerson Royal (Because of the similarity his aunt found with the mascot of a famous jelly brand in Brazil), the very young right-back man who will turn 21 in a few days progresses properly. Barça is already considering the option of executing a clause by which it could anticipate the arrival of the player, foreseen by contract until 2021. The arrival of Emerson links with another of the ideas that surround the head of the Barca technicians: sell to Nelson Semedo. Barcelona announced the signing of Emerson on January 31, 2019. Coming from Atlético Mineiro, he signed for five seasons. The cost of the operation was 12 million euros and closed by the hand of Betis, which paid half of the transfer with the condition of maintaining 50 percent of the rights of the player, which he owns today. Complex clauses surrounded the wording of the contract. In principle, Barça would have to pay six million euros to Betis if he executes the player’s return in 2021. If you advance this summer, you would have to pay, a supplement and the final price would be between 9 and 12 million. The good relationship between Barça and Betis, confirmed in the transfer of Junior Firpo and the assignment of Aleña, would facilitate conversations. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 6, 2020 Emerson has already scored three goals and has given four assists this season. Between Semedo and Sergi Roberto, the two right sides of Barça (without considering Wague that has hardly had any options) have not scored any and have given five assists. To the figures of Emerson (which could have gained weight because it reaches the rival area a lot) adds the feeling that it is a side with physical power, that it is going forward and that it is also growing. That factor is the one that convinces the Barça technicians, who have intensified the follow-up of the player, who It does not have a community place, although today is not a problem at Barça (only has Arthur Y Vidal as foreigners).’Discovery’ of André Cury, the head of the technical secretariat in South America, Emerson arrived in Europe after a strong bid that Chelsea and Arsenal also entered. His signing, full of clauses and commissions, was questioned in Barcelona. Mainly because a transfer was being paid for a player who was not going to wear the Barca shirt, but Betis. After a few months, however, there are already voices that see him as the right-wing future of Barcelona. The possible exit of Semedo in summer and its growth in the championship begin to make it feasible.
