To fault to choose definitively who continues and who leaves , the staff of Koeman has eight players with offensive profile, without counting to Luis Suárez, with good numbers
Although still desconoce if Luis Suárez will finish abandoning or no the FC Barcelona, and if in his place fichará to an attacker youngster like Memphis Depay or Lautaro Martínez, the reality is that Ronald Koeman has to his disposal a wide payroll of players of offensive profile, many of them young, to face with some security the beginning of the season 2020-21.
The hypothetical course of Luis Suárez will leave to the Barça without his second maximum goleador season after season from the campaign 2014-15. The one who yes follows is Leo Messi, fortunately, and to his around could orbit a more dynamic attack, technician and fast with and without balloon that in previous campaigns. Without a 'nine' static, the Barça could play as it did it in time of Pedro and Villa like companions of the '10'.
An attack with more depth and dynamism, able to explode his potential to the contragolpe and also in static, although without the possibility to use to a reference as it is Luis Suárez to fix to the central. The Barça will go back to entrust a year more (the last?) To the magic of Leo Messi, but wait also that others 'covered' of a step forward in his growth.
Like this it was the presentation of Pedri and Trincao
One of them is Antoine Griezmann, that will go back to receive chevrons like headline and that expects to have an important paper in the diagram of Ronald Koeman. With the Argentinian splitting from the right band to go to the centre, 'Grizi' would play like false nine in the tip of attack, with a left band that it would be for Ousmane Dembélé or Ansu Fati, two young promises with an incredible talent and with capacity goleadora.
In the palestra find to other players of offensive profile, creative and asociativo as they are Philippe Coutinho, recently arrived of his cession to the Bayern Munich, and two youngsters perlas with a lot of progression by in front as they are Francisco Trincao and Pedri González. Also it goes on down now Martin Braithwaite, although Koeman wishes to examine him these days and it will be necessary to see if it finish having place in the staff.
If it leaves Luis Suárez, it will be necessary to compensate the 33 goals that has left of average in each one of his seasons like culé. The Uruguayan forward annotated in total 198 so many and is the third maximum realizador of the history of the Barça, that is not little thing. If it does the cases and the Barcelona no index card to a spare, to day of today is an incógnita know if carburará the new attack of Koeman. Names will not be missing him, definitely, and to them could add Rafinha Alcántara like extreme, false nine or midfield player with arrival if it finish forming part of the team. A wide and full payroll of talent.
