After the decisions of Robert Fernández, Ernesto Valverde and his technical team, the plan of Barça for this market of signings was clear, bring a reinforcement by line. In spite of everything, the Barcelona group has closed a central -Marlon- and follows negotiating by a right side -Bellerín-, by what arises the doubt: What happens with the left side?

Before beginning his new adventure in the Camp Nou, the Txingurri already had a clear thing, need two players by place. With this mentality has worked the club in what it goes of summer but on the left flank have sobrevolado the doubts in more than an occasion this past season.

The decisions of Luis Enrique like this have showed it, given the little confidence in Digne, that hardly has explained, and a fault of understanding with Alba, that remained out of the eleven in some decisive parties by the reconstruction of the alignment in a 3-4-3 and showed his dissatisfaction with this.

Like this, the Asturian opened the door to a change in the left band and the club did not commission to close it, since it followed very attentive the evolutions of Theo Hernández until this chose to leave to the Real Madrid. However, with the arrival of the new trainer all changed. Ernesto Valverde has proposed do borrón and new account with the staff, and except some exceptions -the descartes-, no permitiran gone out before the evaluation of the technician.

Of this way, the competition goes back to be between two. A priori Jordi Alba splits like titling, but has to show that in which it will be his sixth season like Barcelona follows prepared to give 100% and be a differential factor in the side. Lucas Digne, by his part, has the opportunity to certify, to his 23 years and in his second course in the City Condal, that his was a signing hit. Only it remains to expect.

Marc Cucurella, smart?

One of the best news of the season of the Barça B, shelving an importantísimo promotion, is the irruption of several players that podrian have his opportunity in the first team. One of them is Marc Cucurella, of the that all consider that has a brilliant future.

The left lateral youngster has to go step by step in his progression, has only 18 years, but is possible that during the season have some occasion to train, and even debut, with the 'greater'. Of Ernesto Valverde and of his performance will depend his minutes.
