It exhausts the time and the doubt in the FC Barcelona continues: Who will accompany to Samuel Umtiti in the centre of the saga in Mestalla? The list of possibilities is very wide, and Ernesto Valverde has not wanted to decant by any hardly some hours before the clash. Although it has left to fall some names, could have descartado some options.

The presence of Gerard Hammered against Valencia aims to be a decision of last hour, by what in the previous trainings, the technicians already will have sopesado pros and contras of all his alternatives. One of which follows sounding with strength is the one of Sergio Busquets, that already has occupied the place in some commitments with the Barcelona group and also in the selection.

Although his position in the field already approaches to the one of a central theorist, is not the same to cover hollow that take the responsibility in defence, and with the ones of Marcelino looking for hurt to the against, the one of Badia could have a bad time with the speed of the forwards blanquinegros.

One of the last occasions in which Pep Guardiola opted by the Catalan finish precipitating the reconversion of Javier Mascherano, a fact that has lengthened in the time until does few months, in which the Argentinian has continued explaining like reference in the retaguardia and no in the centre of the field.

The best pivote

Precisely, that is another of the arguments that invites to think in that Busquets would not be the ideal election to accompany to Umtiti, because it would mean to lose also to the best closing for the medullary. Reconstruct the zone with Ivan Rakitic and Paulinho does not seem bad idea, but would force to recomponer all the vertebral column of the team.

Between the rest of candidates, to Yerry Mina would touch him suffer also with the rhythm that pretend to print the 'che', although in his case exists the advantage to be a more natural option. Like alternative faster appear Lucas Digne or even Nélson Semedo, whenever it do not confirm the surprise and Gerard Hammered sera the headline. At the end, Ernesto Valverde decides, and everything will go through his hands.
