The Canary Islands are not famous for their cities. With good reason, generally. Although there are exceptions to the rule, however. One thinks of Tenerife's San Cristóbal de Laguna, for example, which you'll fall for on first sight.

There is plenty of time for Barcelona to fill any vacancies that they need to before the end of this transfer window, but so far at least, they are yet to eradicate their many glaring inadequacies from last season.
