One of the first names to come out of FC Barcelona in the face of the winter signing market was that of Ferran Jutglà. The fact of having fixed numbers in the middle of the field brought to the de Sant Juliá de Vilatorta to say goodbye to the Barcelona groupall the time that his presence in the staff of Xavi Hernández would translate into very few minutes on the lawn.
In this way, ended his cycle as a culé, signing a total of 21 goals (19 with the subsidiary and two with the first team) along his 41 appearances. Likewise, he had some praise for the one who went to his coach in the Blaugrana group: “I can’t put a ‘but’ on Xavi. His training is pure football. It gave me confidence and I’m very grateful to him and to the club”.
Jutglà was sold to the Witches for five million euros, a figure that could go up to 20 ‘kilos’ in case of achievement of the objectives traced in the subscribed variables. In addition, the Catalan entity has reserved 10% of its cost on a possible future sale. The midfielder was happy with his experience in Xavi’s team and the new challenges he will have ahead of him: “I think if you do things right, people will reward you”.
He is also aware of the investment made by the Belgian team through his incorporation and expects to live up to the expectations that have been placed in him to be able to reward the club and the supporters for the support received: “c was a good option for me, is a club that bet a lot to integrate me. This is my opportunity to strengthen myself in professional football“.
The “explosion” of Jutglà
The Barcelona canterano is aware of the transformation that a footballer’s career can undergo in a very short time, an experience that touched him live after giving the jump to the first team and now to a new league and a new team with a distinct game philosophy: “Sometimes players explode and this year did. One-year-old Ferran wouldn’t believe everything he’s been through this season“.
After being consulted on his passage by the City Condal and the mentors who had in the locker room, the name of Dani Alves stood out, the one who returned to Barcelona precisely with the aim of giving a motivational boost to the youngest: “With the age that he has, continues to behave like an 18 year old boy: always with the maximum of illusion and the maximum of professionalism“.
