The staff of Barça is one of the most expensive in Europe. A hypothetical eleven with the most expensive culés would be worth more than 900 million. That would be the comparison between that eleven and the one in his head Valverde

The FC Barcelona is one of the teams that better has invested his money in the last years. The culés have spent a lot in some signings, but also have found bargains in others. After the course of Andrés Iniesta, Carles Puyol, Dani Alves or Xavi Hernández, the barcelonistas had to initiate a period of necessary restructuring that has culminated with the signings of Antoine Griezmann and Frenkie of Jong.

The eleven initial that has planned Ernesto Valverde for this season would be an eleven that in the market would cost a lot of money. But it would not be the eleven blaugrana that more economic value has in the market. According to the known web transfermarkt, the alignment barcelonista that more would cost would be one something distinct that would surpass the 900 million euros.

In concrete, this eleven initial would cost 925 million euros and would be composed by the following players: Ter Stegen (90 millions), Sergi Roberto (50), Lenglet (60), Jordi Alba (50), Of Jong (85), Busquets (50), Arthur (70), Messi (120), Coutinho (90), Dembélé (100) and Griezmann (130). This so odd alignment would form with a species of 3-4-3 with a rhombus in the half with Busquets, Of Jong, Arthur and Coutinho, and with Messi, Dembélé and Griezmann in the forward.

It would be a training something descompensada in defence, but that it could win definitely to a lot of rivals by his quality in midfield and up. But the reality is that Ernesto Valverde has in his mind an alignment and a tactical diagram entirely distinct and in his eleven would have several change reseñables.

A distinct alignment

To fault that it resolve the case Neymar and to fault to see where finish Coutinho, the 'Txingurri' has in his head this eleven initial in these moments: Ter Stegen, Semedo, Hammered, Lenglet/Umtiti, Jordi Alba, Busquets, Of Jong, Rakitic, Griezmann, Luis Suárez and Leo Messi. In total, there would be three safe changes and one possible, with the doubt of Lenglet and Umtiti.

This shows that the value of market does not matter at all at all and that in the world of the football it is necessary to guide more by the performance and the feelings. Rakitic Or Suárez, in spite of his age, keep on being two safe bets nowadays and seems almost impossible that go out of the eleven próximamente. On the other hand, Dembélé or Arthur, in spite of having an a lot greater market, have not showed all what would have to and, for the moment, will have to expect his opportunity in the bench.
