FC Barcelona has already confirmed five Barça B youth players who will be in the preseason this summer. In addition to the long-awaited Iñaki Peña and Arnau Tenas, there will also be Alejandro Balde, Nico González and Álex Collado
By fault of the Eurocopa and of the Glass America, the FC Barcelona will not be able to have many of his players of face to the pre-season of this summer. For example, Frenkie of Jong, Memphis Depay, Leo Messi, the Kun Agüero, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba or even Martin Braithwaite will incorporate later and will not be available for the start of the preparation, that will be on 12 July.
By this reason, Ronald Koeman has confirmed already to five footballers of the filial that will do the pre-season with the first team. The club has given the seen well to this election, since, in fact, varied of these canteranos could even remain with the greater during all the next campaign. It treats of Iñaki Crag, Arnau Tenas, Alejandor Balde, Nico González and Álex Hill, all with potential to triumph in the first team.
If it was necessary to do a 'top 10' of players of the Barça B with qualities, talent and possibilities to do a gap in the Barcelona, probably all the names mentioned would be in the list. The goalkeepers, in fact, went the course happened one more with the greater and Koeman explained so much with Crag as with Arnau in a lot of trainings and in crowd of announcements. The idea in case that it leave Net Walled is that Iñaki was the acting of Marc-André ter Stegen for the season that comes.
By his part, Balde is a left-handed side jovencísimo, of still 17 years, but with qualities that do him be a firm candidate to be the relief of Jordi Alba the next campaign. Thus, Koeman wants to see him in pre-season, since in the next days could close the sale of Junior Firpo to the Leeds. The canterano will have minutes in the friendly and will try to show that it is a good option like alternative for this left lane.
Nico González, on the other hand, is very little likely that win a place in the first staff, although yes it could be to half horse between the filial and the Barça in case that it convince to Koeman. The Galician has enamoured to the Dutch technician and in front of the drops of Of Jong, Pedri and Busquets will have opportunities to show his qualities. Besides, it fits to say that if it went out Miralem Pjanic, something very possible, can that have options to be his replacement.
Hill could remain in the first team by Trincao
Finally Hill is surely the canterano that more 'done' is of the ones of this list, to exception surely of Crag. The captain of the B is a mediapunta special and aims that it could occupy the place that leave Francisco Trincao in case to leave yielded. The Catalan has a lot of talent, can play in band, of stick and of interior, and has to show his best version in this pre-season to win a place in the staff.
