From it does some seasons, and seeing the bajón of progressive performance of some key pieces of the team, the FC Barcelona has initiated a process of rejuvenation of the staff to base of talonario in the market of signings. They have fichado to some of the best players of the world, like Frenkie of Jong and Antoine Griezmann, in addition to other young promises like Dembélé, Junior Firpo, Lenglet, Semedo, Arthur and the abortive Coutinho, the one who turned into the most expensive signing of the history of the club and has finish going out by the rear door.

With the big aim to reduce the leadership of his heavy weights and increase the new sap without going down the competitive level, the FC Barcelona has looked for in the 'mercatto' what does some years came him from The Masia. The Messi, Busquets, Hammered, Pedro, Sergi Roberto; and going more to backwards Xavi, Valdés, Iniesta and Puyol triumphed in the first team because somebody bet by them and gave them minutes.

True is that equally they followed fichando to players of big talent like Ronaldinho, Deco or Eto'or, but always in a balance that allowed the development of which have been some of the most important players in the history of the FC Barcelona.

Now, it is possible that the sportive politics of the board of Bartomeu was entorpeciendo the promotion of young promises that already have showed, in spite of his little prominence, that in the long run could turn into important players for the Barcelona project. The two more striking cases are the ones of Riqui Puig and Ansu Fati, talents that are between the big jewels of the European football.

The young midfield player follows playing in the Barça B -where besiege him to hard entrances in Second B- to the not having space in the staff of the first team, on exploded of midfield players with Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Arthur, Frenkie of Jong, Carles Aleñá and Sergi Roberto. Aleñá, in fact, is another young promise that has seen relegada to the ostracism, and that this season hardly is going in in the announcements.

Ansu Fati And Carles Pérez, difficult lace in the forward

The another case that calls the attention is the one of Ansu Fati, the one who was the big disclosure of the principle of season with goals and assistances estratosféricos, and that carries a month without playing after they have recovered of his injuries Messi, Suárez and Dembélé. It could have minutes next Tuesday against the Valladolid, but every time is more complicated to find him hollow in the alignments.

In this contingent also goes in Carles Pérez, another attacker youngster that looks for opportunities in the first team and whose contribution is more than aprovechable, although it is possible that in the long run have to look for a cession or a traspaso with option of repurchase for like this have prominence and play each weekend. The Barça, in definite, finds problems to settle to his young values in the first team. Or it is that simply they do not assent because his fifth is not so good like the one of Messi, Hammered and Busquets in his day? It opens the debate.
