The culés, thinking in renewing his staff after Xavi arrived to the bench in the end of the 2021, thought in the defender like a good opportunity of market. Although it had not had too much continuity in the last two seasons, the Barcelona Sportive Direction trusted that the risk was controlled to the not paying value of traspaso and being a footballer contrasted to the maximum level.

It finished returning before the stop of the World-wide, and for this 2023 and without the '3' in the staff, has consolidated like the central left of Xavi for each party.
