After the exit of Luis Suárez to the Athletic of Madrid the past summer, the FC Barcelona remained with the grave problem of not having a player that was the reference in the area and that offer the so required association with Lionel Messi and other elements of the oncena Barcelona for concrete the goals that have done so much fault recently.
It has been the same Messi the one who has had to assume this position inside the field, although always doing gala of the freedom that awards him Ronald Koeman to retreat metres and begin the played from further back, as it is used to to do.

By his part, the footballer of the Lyon is of the favourites of the trainer culé Ronald Koeman, the one who would know perfectly how do it surrender of the best way, thanks to that both coincided in the Dutch selection during some time. Both footballers are excellent options of face to the need of the Barcelona to achieve a 9, but only one will be able to arrive.
