Barça will sign an important nine as a smoke screen

first_imgIt seems written that Barça will sign a smoke curtain this week to try to stop the storm of criticism for the chain of erratic decisions that the Barca club has taken in recent weeks, with assignments or marches of quarry players and a change of coach that is already questioned.And also the low of Suárez. Like it or not, Barça was going to miss the loss of a player who had participated in 25 goals this season. Nine will arrive, but Setién must explore the weaknesses of the system he has implemented upon arrival. Lautaro Martínez and Rodrigo are the great favorites to join Barça, although behind the scenes there is speculation with a cover. When Maxi Gomez’s ball took a diabolical trajectory after Jordi Alba’s rejection and Valencia made it 1-0, Setién looked at the bench and found no striker. There were Iñaki Peña, Lenglet, Junior, Lenglet, Semedo, Rakitic, Vidal and Collado.Carles Pérez, who had renewed his contract until 2022 last September, and that was supposed to be a club bet, was at home packing his bags without knowing his destiny because the club he has given part of the best years of his life has told six days to close the market to look for a team.And while Carles Pérez was sitting at home, Barça woke up in Valencia and only knocked on the door five times. Four of them from Messi and another with an almost joking shot of De Jong. LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of January 25, 2020last_img read more

So, Costa Rica looked like the best fit for our market,” Waterson added.Recommended: 21 Tips: The do’s and don’ts of renting an apartment in San JoséTourism Minister Wilhem von Breymann said that the new routes would help bolster Costa Rica’s relationship with the United States, the largest single source of visitors to Costa Rica. According to the ICT, 90 percent of U.S. tourists arrive in Costa Rica by air and spend an average of more than $2,200 per person, per visit.Tourism industry representatives have been increasingly concerned about the rising costs for travelers in Costa Rica, but Waterson said the country continues to provide greater value than many other destinations.“There are many countries, many islands that have a great beach, but you can’t leave the hotel. Costa Rica offers a diversity of visiting nice beaches and hotels, but also of seeing more of the country in a safe manner, and that’s priceless,” Waterson said.President Luis Guillermo Solís said Southwest’s announcement and his intention of opening a direct flight to Costa Rica from China were part of a larger policy to make Costa Rica more connected to the wider world. The president added that the announcement was once again proof that Costa Rica is an attractive, reliable market for companies to invest.Southwest already offers international service to Aruba, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic and Mexico. Service to Belize City is expected later in 2015.Fans of the carrier’s distinctive cattle-call boarding policy can look forward to seeing the same queues here in Costa Rica, Waterson said.“We can’t wait to show you that Southwest hospitality,” Jordan said.
