De Jong's departure to Manchester United begins to 'get on track' and this would leave a gap in the squad that must be filled by Nico, who will be forced to step up in what will be his second season in the first team
The Manchester United wants to do with the services of Frenkie of Jong 'at all costs' and follows presionando by his signing. The delicate financial situation of the FC Barcelona has forced them to listen offers by the footballer and the 'network devils' have him like priority in the market, due to the fact that his new trainer, Erik Have Hag, already had under his orders to the Dutch in his stage in the Ámsterdam Sand and was the one who greater performance him 'took out' to the player. Thus, from Old Trafford have advanced in the management and, to fault of the "himself" of the ex of the Ajax, the operation begins to 'encarrilarse'.
To concretise his exit, the medullary culé will see 'weakened' to the margin of a possible spare of first level (Bernardo Silva, Carlos Soler...), by what Nico González will see forced to take a step forward in function to win weight in the staff of Xavi Hernández. In his first campaign like player of the first staff, the youngster canterano has carried 'cool legs' to the medullary of the group barcelonista, and aims to be one of the protagonists of the team in the future.
Now, the mediocampista, in principle, will live his second course like footballer of the first team and will have to show that has what needs to dress the Barcelona T-shirt. For this, the mediocampista has to recover the good feelings that went dissipating during the final stretch of the past course, where the injuries and the doubts that left in the terrain of game took him off prominence in the diagram of the egarense.
In spite of this, the trainer of Terrassa keeps on being one of the big valedores of the international with the Spanish selection sub 21 and has he in his staff for the following campaign. In spite of that his name has been related to a cession, the recognised agent Jorge Mendes affirmed after a dinner with Joan Laporta that "do not want to it sell and, although there are offers by him, goes to remain", leaving clear the intensiones of the club with the footballer.
The Barça trusts he
In the City Condal have full confidence in the midfield player, whose qualities are 'unquestionable' and do him a player of only profile inside the group blaugrana. By this reason, and further of the reinforcements that arrive or no to the team culé, if it confirms the traspaso of Of Jong, Nico has the obligation to give a 'hit' in the table and consecrate like one of the main Catalan figures. Nevertheless, the fight does not go to be simple, since the Busquets, Gavi, Pedri and Kessié split with advantage in the 'career', but the quality and projection of González make possible his settlement in the group of Xavi.
