The crisis of central defenders that the FC Barcelona crossed during November of this year, given the drops of Araújo and Piqué and the unstable present of Umtiti, carried to Ronald Koeman to give him the opportunity to debut in the first team to Óscar Mingueza, the one who formed part of the filial. The performance and the adaptation of the young defender have been quite remarkable, adding already nine meetings with the first staff.

This situation has been extremely surprising, since Mingueza, in his moment, was not not even title in the FC Barcelona B, directed by Francisco García Pepper. Even, in the most important party of the filial culé in the past season, in which it played the promotion to Second To against the Sabadell, the central headlines were Araújo and Jorge Cuenca, leaving to the Catalan out of the first options.

Now, Mingueza has gone back an option more than recurrent in the plans of Ronald Koeman, thanks to his stood out performances and to the polivalencia that offers his profile, to be able to cover emergencies. This, due to the fact that, in addition to being able to play like head office, the player of 21 years can occupy any one of the two sides.

Mingueza, with his renewal in sight

Óscar Mingueza finalises his agreement with the FC Barcelona in June of 2021, afterwards to having renewed previously in the year 2018. However, in this last extension of agreement, the player and the club opted for clearing the option of 3+2, that indicates that it would renew him by three years, with option of two extra.

Of this way, the intention of the Barcelona and of the same Mingueza would go through to expand the current legal commitment that the player is supported by the club. Of this way, the footballer could follow managing like culé and fulfil his dream to triumph in the rows of the group of his loves, to the that arrived 14 years ago already.
