Reports: Barca Boss Unhappy Brazilian Was Allowed To Leave

FC Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde is reportedly not happy that the club let a Brazilian star leave without his permission in this window.

Messi Linked With Shock Move

Despite winning the 2017/18 LaLiga title and the Copa del Rey, it appears that Valverde is still not entirely in charge of incomings and outgoings at the club.

According to Marca, the Spaniard was against allowing Brazilian midfielder Paulinho to leave in this window. Although he is now on loan at Guangzhou Evergrande, it is unlikely he will play for the Catalans again.

The club's general manager Pep Segura and president Josep Maria Bartomeu seem to be in charge of transfers currently, while former managers Pep Guardiola and Luis Enrique had full control over who the Blaugrana signed and sold.

After missing out on Antoine Griezmann and with Paulinho going back to China, Valverde insisted that the club sign Chelsea winger Willian, but that deal fell through.

The Blaugrana have instead secured the signature of 21-year-old Brazilian attacker Malcom, but it is unclear if Valverde had him in mind ahead of the 2018/19 season.

Do you think managers should have more control over transfers? Let us know in the comments section below.
