The past summer, promoted in the want to of Ronald Koeman and by the humillante defeat by 2-8 in front of the Bayern Munich, the FC Barcelona gave start to a revolution in his staff, undoing of players whose name was quite significant inside the plantel Barcelona. Of this way, Luis Suárez, Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal sacked of the Camp Nou and put course to Athletic of Madrid, Seville and Inter of Milan, respectively.

Now, after a new and painful fall in the Champions League, this time in front of the Paris Saint-Germain, the picture culé has to finalise the revolution begun the past summer and finish to remodel the plantel. This painful replanteo goes through "to cut the heads" of other players of weight, such as Jordi Alba, Gerard Piqué and Sergio Busquets, three of the distinguished after the fall in front of the Parisian group.

Alba has suffered enough in tale to his defensive contribution this season and, precisely in the party in front of the PSG, the same was unable to contain the advances of Moise Kean. By his part, Piqué went back to the terrains of game after some months of drop and his fault of reflections and of activity was more than remarkable, in front of the climbings of Kylian Mbappé.

In the case of Busquets, the mediocampista has gone of less to more regarding his performance this season, but little by little has noticed that his rhythm no longer is for big appointments, like the meeting in front of the PSG. No longer it is able to direct the times of the parties as before and his fault of skill do it be one of the signalled every time that the Barcelona falls defeated.

Piqué, Alba and Busquets, was or to the bank?

The big doubt that arises after this situation is the one of what do with Piqué, Busquets and Alba, since, although every time it is more notorious that they have to be replaced in the alignment title, the same could serve like relief of the youngsters that arrive to substitute them. Of this same form happened with Xavi when Ivan Rakitic was signed in the campaign 2014-15, being the change equaliser with which explained Luis Enrique in that then.

Although these players could be sold to generate some income, also exists the possibility that they assume this exemplary role for the next campaign. In front of the more than possible arrival of his reliefs, as Eric García and Alejandro Balde, as well as the climbing of youngsters that already find in the first team, as Riqui Puig and Ilaix Moriba, the permanence of Alba, Piqué and Busquets could be beneficial.
