There has been rather surprising in La Liga transfer. Barcelona, which is being banned from making any transfer move till January 2016, has just managed to sign Sevilla’s Aleix Vidal. Even though the ban has yet to be over, the very player expresses a great amount of exhilaration. Aleix Vidal admitted to being close, dangerously, to giving up the dreams of making a living as a professional footballer in number occasions, tired of being in constant battle for the recognition in the number of teams that he has been affiliated with. It has been known that Aleix Vidal has played for ten different teams in the last 10 years.
Luckily, the decision he made to join Almeria in 2011 eventually gave his professional footballing career a well-deserved escalation, being the regular player for the first team after being right winger in the reserve team after one season of regular appearances. If Los Rojiblancos made their return to the Primera Division only a year after they had been demoted from their top tier in the Spanish league. That was entirelythanks to the very player’s enthusiasm, relentless desire, and consistent excellence to succeed at any costs.
Unsurprisingly, the Sevilla’s erudite sporting director Ramon Rodrigues Monchi made no hesitation to grab the opportunity to make the sign of such a promising youngster for a mere six million pounds in the summer last year. The rest has been history, as they claim. In a situation which is rather haphazardly similar to that of the previous teammate in Infantil B, Jordi Alba, Aleix Vidal discovered that he was under the expert sharp eyes of Unai emery and progressing in order to have regular playing time as full-back, instead of a wide winger. He has made forty seven appearances and even 6 goals later that season. The Catalan should be proud to have signed the key role in Sevilla. This player has boosted the team to their best in La Liga.
Now twenty five years of age, Aleix Vidal comes back to Barcelona much more prepared, mature player that will do everything with his competence to grab the opportunity to succeed at Barcelona with his both hands. Aleix Vidal’s physicality, dangerous when running on overlap, allows him to run toward bylines with no effort. He might not be as technically talented as Dani Alves, yet his splendid shape makes him a real nightmare for the opponent.
