    Good job by him and Jordi Cruyff this summer. Even if Xavi had a big say in a few of these transfers like Kounde I doubt he picked out every single transfer we've made. Not a big fan of Alonso and Bellerin at the end, but I guess as super cheap options they're fine.

    Every SD at every club will have a couple of misses, even Txiki did and he's had a few of them at City as well.

    Two clear priorities for next summer already which is RB and CDM with positions such as LB, Attacking CM and GK depending on how Balde, Gavi/Frenkie and ter Stegen do this season.

    All things considered, for 115M net with the squad we had, it was great start of rebuild.

    Plenty of work needs to be done in next few years to complete rebuild.

    Is Alemany really a SD like Planes was, though? I thought he was the football director who takes care of the business side of transfers (both in and out) such as handling negotiations, and had little input in exactly what players we want to bring in etc., and such decisions had been largely made by Xavi and even Laporta himself, after Planes’ departure?

    He isn't 100% business though.
    Usually clubs has negotiators for that, and we had (at least under Bartou) a football director and sport director and both for football. Depends on who has power for what.
    Like we had Fernandez + Segura, at some point Segura was more involved in decisions than Fernandez.

    Seems like Alemany is the more influential guy, but there is probably an army under him that we don't hear of.
    Also, Jordi Crujif assumed SD role
