The FC Barcelona is finishing of pulir his staff of face to the next season. After closing the signings of Antoine Griezmann, Net Walled and Frenkie of Jong, the technical office culé only has by in front work in the left side and perhaps in the forward. Jordi Alba and Luis Suárez follow without having a spare of guarantees, but the most likely is that only it finish arriving a left side, waiting for seeing what occurs with the possible signing of Neymar.

It was as it was, the Barcelona have made a spectacular staff with a lot of variants and with alternatives of level in practically all the places. Ernesto Valverde will have to find the balance in his eleven to give him fit to all the players culés. The trainer barcelonista has a plantillón and this year touches him know manage it of a suitable form in which all the footballers can feel important.

In spite of the arrival of Net, Ter Stegen keeps on being indisputable in the goal and there is not doubt that it will be headline. In the centre of the saga, Gerard Hammered is fixed, but his companion could vary according to the state of form of Samuel Umtiti. Clément Lenglet won the place the past course when completing a big season, but in this pre-season begins of zero. If Umtiti goes back to his level, could have options to snatch him the place to his compatriot. Todibo Will be the fourth head office and it is necessary to see if it is prepared to give him a break to Hammered.

In the left-handed side, waiting for that it arrive the signing, Jordi Alba is another of the fixed. The Catalan completed a big season the past year and with an acting of luxury could have more rest and arrive better to the final stretch of competition. In the right side is where could have important novelties, since Valverde seems that it will explain more Sergi Roberto for his centre of the field. It could be the turn of Nélson Semedo, that asked minutes and loomed with leaving . The luso is in front of the opportunity of his life and could be the year of his definite consolidation. Wagué Would be his big alternative if Roberto happens to the midfield.

Fierce competition in the half and in the forward

The centre of the field is where more competition there will be and is also where Valverde will have to know manage better his resources. Sergio Busquets seems that it keeps on being indisputable, but with Frenkie of Jong will have competition and especially will have a relief of category to be able to rest. Ivan Rakitic will have to win the place, but, in principle, would follow splitting like titling. Of Jong could be his companion and would be the big novelty of the team in half. The Dutch will contribute him energy, quality and speed to the circulation of balloon culé.

Arthur Melo and Arturo Vidal would be the two big alternative to the interiors in the midfield, without forgetting to Coutinho, that with the arrival of Griezmann could have more minutes in this position. Besides, also it is Sergi Roberto, that seems that it will play more in his natural position. The normal would be that the 'Txingurri' rote much more of the usual this course, since has spare players to do it. Carles Aleñá also has won have more opportunities and has to keep growing, the same that Riqui Puig, that is near to demolish the wall that all canterano has to demolish.

The signing of Griezmann does that in the forward also can have interesting variants. In an eleven type, seems that the Frenchman will share line of attack beside Leo Messi and Luis Suárez. It would have to play in the left, but with a lot of freedom to move and change of position with the '10'. Also it could play in the centre to give him rest to Suárez, that seems that it will be another year without spare. Abel Ruiz, of the filial, could be his relief, but it is necessary to see what want to Valverde. In the case that the ex rojiblanco happened to the tip of attack, Ousmane Dembélé could go in by the left. The Frenchman will be important in the second unit and will try to do a gap in the eleven. Coutinho Also could play here, but seen his level seems that it is behind the ex of the Dortmund. Malcom, if it remains , will be another of the alternatives that handle the technician extremeño

In summary, the 'Txingurri' goes to have in his hands a spectacular staff in almost all the positions and expects a year of a lot of rotations. But always it is necessary to have an eleven more or less predefinido and the one of the ex of the Athletic Club could be east: Ter Stegen; Semedo, Hammered, Lenglet, Alba; Busquets, Rakitic, Of Jong; Messi, Suárez and Griezmann. Arthur, Dembélé and company could go in by almost any one anytime. The Barça has osiers to do something important this campaign and Valverde is in front of the big opportunity of his career.
