This Tuesday will be his day. Pjanic will officially sign his new contract at 1:00 p.m. He will be linked to FC Barcelona for the next four seasons, in addition to confirming a clause of 400 million euros. Later, and in the company of President Josep Maria Bartomeu, he will visit the Camp Nou facilities and the dressing room, where he will dress short to take the formal photographs on the pitch. And at 2:00 p.m. the player is scheduled to pronounce his first words at a telematic press conference where he will be accompanied by technical secretary Ramón Planes.

For the second time in a row, Bartomeu ‘will avoid’ the media and will not be at the press conference of a new signing. He was already absent from the presentation of the Portuguese Francisco Trincao and now he will repeat the play with Pjanic's. And it is that since Messi threatened with his departure through a burofax and later announced that he was staying but reluctantly, putting Bartomeu and his sports project in the trigger as the most responsible for the failure in recent years, that the president has decided to move away from the media spotlight, leaving the ‘brown’ to Planes.

The only exception was made in the farewell to Ivan Rakitic, at the beginning of September, where the president appeared at the press conference to honor the Croatian midfielder, but he was only in the first minutes of the act, and then left the witness to the now Sevilla player.
