The 26-time Spanish champion in the summer is reinforced by defensive midfielder Miralem Pjanic from Juventus (60 million), Trincan from Braga (31 million) and defender Serginho Dest from Ajax (21 million). The most important event was the transfer to the team of Ronald Koeman , who took over the club on 19 August.
