The FC Barcelona wants to keep put of full in the fight by the titles, and that's why it carries time planning his team of the future. The Catalans will confront soon at the end of the best generation of footballers of his history, and when the Messi, Busquets, Hammered or Jordi Alba say goodbye, want to be ready. To day of today, there are several debates in the construction of the staff, and one of them does reference to the retaguardia.
As well as it has renewed the centre of the field and in the forward looks for relief to Luis Suárez, the central go back to come under scrutiny, in this occasion, without so many urgencies like antaño. It cost a lot fill the gap left by a legend like Carles Puyol, and now that at last it exists a configuration of guarantees, in the club does not want to neglect this part of the planning, that has questions and answers.
The forecasts of future of the defence of the Barça
If it keeps his ascending path, Clément Lenglet will be definitely a signing crashes of the Barcelona, that hit of full in his bet by the one of Beauvais. It cost almost 36 million euros take him out of the Seville, but his consolidation in the Camp Nou has confirmed that the effort was worthwhile. To his 24 years, the French has reserved a place like titling in the defence of the morning, because it never does too noise but always is in the correct place, is tácticamente responsible, does not burn him the balloon in the feet and is a value in offensive actions.
To day of today, his best couple is Gerard Hammered, a veteran that soon will look for heir. The Barcelonan is 32 years old but is to an excellent level, and on the way to 2022, the date in which it expires his recently renewed agreement, will have to find a young spare to the that happen him the witness. Who will be the attendant to occupy his place? The question is more difficult of what seems, since in addition to his stood out qualities futbolísticas, ideals for the Barcelona style, the canterano has an identification with the colours and capacity of leadership complicated to retort.
Jean-Clair Todibo could be the answer in the succession of the Catalan, but to his 19 years is prompt to say it. There is time so that it mature on the way to the withdrawal of the third captain, but there are others in the fight by the minutes and the Frenchman has to confirm that it is more than a bunch of good and promising feelings. If the one of Cayenne or other applicants, as Ronald Araujo, do not consolidate , the Barça could attend to the market to complete an axis of the saga that up to now works perfectly.
To his 25 years and with a quality more than contrasted, Samuel Umtiti would have to be a rotunda certainty, but has turned into incógnita after some months plagados of injuries. It does hardly some weeks, the one of Yaundé ilusionó to the fans going back to offer a big level on the terrain of game... Justo before going back to stop by a contusión in his maltrecha knee in a training. The shadow of the doubt is on his head, and the feeling is that it only will be able to continue in the Camp Nou if it recovers a regularity that is him escaping.
