First Carles Aleña left on loan to Betis. Now, Barcelona has announced the transfer of Jean-Clair Todibo, the 20-year-old central that arrived in the last winter market, at German Schakle 04. The operation has been estimated at 1.5 million euros, in addition to assuming the German club the defense card. Barça paid in January 2019 a million euros to French Toulouse.
Not only that. Schalke 04 also reserves a purchase option of 25 million euros plus five in variables. And in case Barça wanted to recover Todibo one day, it would maintain "a future purchase option for 50 million euros, plus 10 million more in variables".
Araujo gains prominence
Quique Setién stays with only three plants (Piqué, Lenglet and Umtiti) although, at the same time, a door is opened to Ronald Araujo, the Uruguayan defender of Barça B (20 years old), who will now have to assume the role of Todibo, that is, to be the central quarter of the Barça squad.
Todibo has been only one year at the Camp Nou and has left no trace. He has barely played five games (four in the League and one in the Champions League) in this brief step by Barça.
