One of the weaknesses that has characterised to the FC Barcelona in the last seasons has been the fault of defensive solidity in the sides. With a carrilero so offensive like Jordi Alba, the right lane of Sergi Roberto and Nélson Semedo has suffered more than the account to the hour to contain the contragolpes of the rival teams.

Sergi Roberto has accustomed to be the right-handed side headline of the Barça since it left Alves, although in this last course has shared leadership with Nélson Semedo. In the key parties of the season, however, have been able to see the defensive lacks of Sergi Roberto that it is a midfield player reconverted, and that therefore does not have of the job and the necessary physicist to brake to the best attackers of the world.

Had a lot of problems against the Liverpool, and also in front of other clubs with players more powerful physically that he. The canterano Barcelona is strong and fast, but stands out more by his technician with the balloon that by his actions without balloon. From here that Ernesto Valverde plan changes for the next campaign, and these would go through to give back to Sergi Roberto to the centre of the field.

The one of Reus is a midfield player of touch, specialist in the containment and also with a lot of capacity to filter balloons between lines and incorporate to the attack from second line. With his presence in the medullary, the FC Barcelona would reinforce even more a room of machines in which it already has Busquets, Arthur, Arturo Vidal, Rakitic, Frenkie of Jong and Carles Aleñá, without forgetting us of a Rafinha that still is still in the staff.

The movement, viable according to the Catalan sportive press, would cause that Nélson Semedo became the indisputable headline in the right side -has potential of leftovers for this-, something that could solve a lot of defensive problems in said zone when being the luso an authentic portento physical, tireless and with a big speed tip.

The aim: that the Barça was solider defensivamente

The FC Barcelona could rise to Moussa Wagué from the filial so that it exert of acting usual of Nélson Semedo, and like this would remain very reinforced said position. Although it is true that Wagué still is a bit green, would go purchasing an experience that would help him to progress to his 20 years. And, besides, that Sergi Roberto return to the medullary does not want to say that it can not return of punctual form to the right side, in some unimportant party or of little physical requirement.

It hits it for the canterano Catalan of the Barça is that, in spite of returning to his ideal position, will have a lot of more competition and will have of fewer minutes of game. It will be a player of staff, however, a joker to do of the Barça an even more solid team.
