The FC Barcelona announced in May one of the most expected news by the followers of the quarry of the Barcelona group. The culés confirmed the renewal of Nico González, one of the big jewels of the Masia and one of the most promising players of the filial. In fact, those that more know him signal him like the natural substitute of Sergio Busquets in the first team, something that are greater words.
The Galician finished agreement this summer and was one of the pending subjects that had Joan Laporta. Luckily, the midfield player always left clear that his first option was to be still in Barcelona and can do with a gap with the greater sooner that late. By this reason, the renewal has been relatively simple and to the club has not cost him too much arrive to an agreement with him, something that is not occurring with another perla of the quarry like Ilaix Moriba.
The also mediocampista finish agreement inside a year and still is far to having renewed. His representatives are asking a lot of money and in the entity have decided that the Hispanic-aficano was in dynamics of the Barça B until it resolve everything. It is a measure of pressure so that the one of Conakri accept to renew, although by the moment has not arisen effect. This is an abysmal news for the blaugrana, although it could have his good side.

Without Moriba, in these moments the Dutch technician only has Riqui Puig, Miralem Pjanic, the joker Sergi Roberto, Gavi and Álex Hill like possible midfield players. Taking into account that the bosnio does not explain and that the rest are inner or mediapuntas, is very possible that Nico do of Busquets against the Gimnàstic.
Until Frenkie of Jong, recently incorporated to the pre-season, win something of shooting, is likely that González play a lot. Koeman Is enamoured of him since it saw him for the first time in the filial and will not doubt in following having he if the Galician surrenders. It will be necessary to see what happens with Ilaix at the end, since if it does not renew and finish going, the coruñés could finish having place on a long-term basis with the greater.
