Without a doubt, handball has a pace that is incomparable to any other sport when it comes to signings.

Accustomed to other disciplines in which market movements are known days, weeks or, at most, a few months before they occur, In the handball transfer market, some movements are already known, even officially, that will not take place until the summer of 2025.

So, as if from a ‘Domino effect’ The pieces of the enormous dimensions were involved, ‘puzzle’ the goals of several European teams seem to be starting to fall into place.

One of the first movements was that of Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas, current Barça goalkeeper, who announced his signing for THW Kiel last summer for 2025.

Despite the German team’s intentions to bring forward the arrival of the Barça goalkeeper by a year (in the end, the ‘zebras’ have signed the German Andreas Wolff), finally the Toledo native will fulfil his contract with Barça and will continue to defend the goal for Carlos Ortega’s team during the 2024/25 season.

In order to replace Gonzalo, FC Barcelona already has an agreement with Viktor Gisli HallgrimssonIcelandic goalkeeper who has played in recent seasons for French side Nantes, but who next season he will play for Wisla Plock. He will do it for a year, prior to landing at the Palau Blaugrana in the summer of 2025.

And precisely, for when that happens, the Polish team has announced the signing of Norwegian goalkeeper Torbjorn Bergerud, who has been presented as a new player for Orlen Wisla Plock from summer 2025, once his commitment to Kolstad ends.

Bergerud has signed a three-year contract with Xavi Sabaté’s team.

“We are delighted that a world-class goalkeeper like Torbjorn Bergerud, whose impressive career speaks for itself, is joining our club. His exceptional goalkeeping technique, reflexes and ability to make decisions under pressure are well known, and we are delighted that he will be part of our team.” commented sporting director Adam Wisnieski.

Two of the three star signings of Wisla Plock that were announced by the Polish press a couple of months ago have already been confirmed: Mitja Janc will join this summer and Bergerud in 2025.

The main course, however, will be Barça’s French full-back Melvyn Richardson, who will also arrive in 2025.
