The FC Barcelona has fallen again in an important party in the era post-Messi. In a duel between the two more winning teams of the Glass of Rey, Xavi Hernández saw in the obligation to change his diagram of game to the two minutes, when Iker Muniain surprised to Ter Stegen with an authentic golazo. From this moment, all the structure planned in the previous went to rack and ruin.

However, while it advanced the commitment, the Barça tried to impose his ideology, although it did not go until the minute 20 that Ferran Torres gave a 'hit on the table' and empató the duel. Nevertheless, since it initiated the meeting, the absence of Frenkie of Jong in the eleven headline leaves clear the posture of Xavi: no longer it is intocable. And it is that once it arrived rest, the technician decided to move the bench and gave him to Nico González the opportunity to première like official player of the first team, leaving also out of the main rotation to the Dutch.

The party advanced in the complement and did not go until the minute 61 that of Jong saw minutes when going in by Gavi, in an attempt of the míster to impose control in the medullary. At all more far of the reality, the born in Arkel went back to happen unobserved and included gave a short pass that could mean the (2-1) for the 'lions'. Although it was not a party 'bad' for the dorsal '21', what is clear is that it finds very far of his best version, that that showed in the Ajax. His last performances begin to put in doubt his high value of market, that according to ´Transfermarkt´, round the 70 million euros.

His figure has seen opacada by the youngsters of the filial, and the confidence of the trainer in his capacities every time is lower. In spite of this, still sees minutes constantly, but has been displaced so much in the eleven headline by Gavi as in the first rotation by Nico. The midfield player is comfortable in Catalonia, but from the offices of the Camp Nou begin to do questions, and already Xavi has left clear that does time that left to be an indispensable piece.

A traspaso of 70 'kilos'

The Barcelona could move in the next market veraniego and go out of a player like Frenkie, the one who, such as it seems, every time has less time of game in the eleven initial. His traspaso can be one of the most elevated of the staff, and beaux would not be missing him to the player of 24 years. Besides, it could do 'box' for the landing of Haaland. The time advances fast, and the Barcelona directive has any alternative in account.
