Frenkie de Jong and Arthur Melo are the two young midfielders for which FC Barcelona has bet. Both are destined to be the culé game directors
The style of game is innegociable for the FC Barcelona. From the arrival of Johan Cruyff to the bench culé, established in the team a philosophy based in having the balloon like offensive and defensive weapon, generating superiority in all the zones of the field and avoiding that the rival have the ball to create occasions of danger.
Since, they have arisen a lot of midfield players of the Masia that have carried to the practice said philosophy -as they can be Pep Guardiola, Xavi Hernández, Andrés Iniesta or Sergio Busquets- and a lot of signings have understood to perfection how fit in this style -as Deco or Ivan Rakitic- to help to the ones of house.
From the past season, the FC Barcelona has put the batteries to find in the market of traspasos footballers the most alike possible to which already arrived or to which formed in the Barcelona quarry.
