It was a secret to voices, but already is real. Moussa Wagué Has risen from the Barça B to the first staff of the FC Barcelona, by what from this moment already will be a fixed more to the orders of Ernesto Valverde, so much in the trainings as of face to the parties of all the competitions, as long as the 'Txingurri' decide to summon him.

The FC Barcelona has announced through the social networks the promotion of Wagué to the first team, and has done it by means of a photography taken in the Ciutat Esportiva Joan Gamper, in which it appears the young Senegalese player posing with his new dorsal, the number '16'. To his 20 years, the one of Bignona has taken the news with special illusion, and is had to struggle by minutes of game in the Barça.

It will not have it easy because of the competition with Nélson Semedo, that from now will be the right-handed side headline of the Barcelona. Sergi Roberto will happen to play in the centre of the field of usual form, but no descarta that in punctual parties can return to the right lane of the defence, by what Wagué will have to encourage to the maximum to have of opportunities.

It treats of a carrilero right-handed that the past season 2018-19 already showed some of his qualities with the first team, in parties explained of the Glass of Rey and LaLiga Santander. It is a very fast side, that is used to to incorporate to the attack with frequency and very correct to the hour to defend, with a physical potential that allows him recover the position easily after being surpassed.

Has still a lot for learning, but expects to do it in one of the best staff of Europe, surrounded of some mates that will help him to improve and to evolve futbolísticamente. Moussa Wagué Will be, therefore, a young reinforcement and of big projection for the Barça 2019-20, that will endow to the staff of even more depth and, why no, of some 'overbooking' in the centre of the field.

Accumulation of talent in the centre of the field

Because, if Sergi Roberto happens to the room of machines, in said positions Ernesto Valverde will have to choose between Rakitic, Busquets, Arturo Vidal, Arthur, Frenkie of Jong, Carles Aleñá and the own Sergi Roberto, explaining besides with that Rafinha still has not done the cases, whereas Coutinho also can act in positions of interior or mediapunta if necessary.

It will be the promotion of Wagué the confirmation that one of the midfield players can do the cases of imminent form? We will not know it until suceda, since in spite of the rumours that exist from does days, the Barça has not closed still any agreement. And so much Rakitic like Arturo Vidal already have left clear, in more than an occasion, that want to be still in the staff.
