The FC Barcelona faced the wintry market with the clear intention to achieve a midfield player 'low cost' to strengthen his staff of face to the rest of the season, especially in the position of mediocentro. Nevertheless, in spite of the wish of the sportive direction of the club, the reality is that the economic limitations seems that they will prevent to the cast of the City Condal satisfy this need at least in January, postponing it for the next market of summer.

In this sense, Deco, sportive director of the Catalan picture, went the attendant to communicate the bad news, confirming that the team culé will not be able to fichar to the pivote that Xavi wished from the past summer and that he same considered a priority. However, given the empty existent in this position after Oriol Romeu, the only midfield player with a profile netamente defensive in the Barcelona payroll, did not surrender as it expected , seems that the Barça will opt for testing a new alternative with a player of the current staff.

Christensen, the 'covered' of the Barça for the pivote

The footballer selected to exert this function in the most demanding parties would be the defender Andreas Christensen.

The Danish, whose name has been linked with a possible traspaso in next summer, considers a totally valid option to test in this demarcation, since it has some experience in this role, having contested several meetings in this position so much with Chelsea as with the Borussia Mönchengladbach and his national selection. Equally, the Barcelona group also is evaluating his tools of game, capacity to recover balloons and his physical image, without descartar the ease that has to initiate played from the background line.

The referred source also sustains that so much Deco like Xavi Hernández seem to coincide in this idea. Both value to Andreas Christensen by his big intelligence and capacity to read the game, considering it a viable option to test. Nevertheless, this will not be possible until Iñigo Martínez return, since at present the Barça needs to the Danish in defensive works because of the changes that is experiencing the defensive line of the picture culé by the injuries that have him azotado in the last time.
