FC Barcelona finished its preseason against Naples and now it is time to draw conclusions about the performance that all the players have given. The vast majority, such as De Jong or Riqui Puig, are reinforced by this preparation
The pre-season of the FC Barcelona already has touched to his end and the culés can be more than satisfied with the performance that have given all the players. Ones have shined more than others, but the true is that this preparation has left big feelings in general. This is the 1x1 of the Barcelona footballers in this preparation.
The German does not have at all that show and in pre-season neither shined neither had any error. It was very sobrio in all the parties that contested and saw him so safe as always. It will go back to be title a campaign more, in spite of the arrival of Net, and will be so important as of habit for a Barça that follows conceding too backwards.
The Brazilian has arrived this summer to substitute to Jasper Cillessen in the goal of the Barcelona. The ex of Valencia will be the acting of Ter Stegen and in pre-season has showed that whenever it play goes to be to the height. Against in Naples, in the first party of turns it American, went of the best and left big unemployed. The negative note has been his injury, that will keep him out of the terrains of game until September.
The carrilero Portuguese had doubts on his future in the Barça, but the change of position of Sergi Roberto has done that it remain like titling indisputable in the side. It has done a remarkable preparation and everything indicates that this can be his best season with the group barcelonista.
The Senegalese has played little in pre-season, but in the club trust that it was important on a long-term basis. Already it has index card with the first team and will be the acting of Semedo this course. Still it has a lot of things that improve, especially in defensive phase and in his taking of decisions, but expects that it grow this course.
The Barcelona head office will be indisputable headline a year more in the centre of the saga of the Barcelona. In pre-season has seen him sure, fast and with many win to follow winning titles with the Barça. Only it remains for determining who will be his mate in the saga.
The ex sevillista was to title the year happened to the detriment of Umtiti, that did not recover his place in the eleven after recovering of his injury. It gave the size and was one of the big news of the Barcelona the past season. In pre-season has seen him so safe as always and will play the place of left-handed head office with Umtiti.
The left-handed wants to resarcirse after his bad last campaign. It happened lesionado half course and when it recovered did not give the level and did not recover his place. In the preparation has seen him much better physically and expects that it soon can go back to be the one of always. It could be one of the best signings that do the Barça this year.
The jovencísimo French defender has won the confidence of Valverde in pre-season. The trainer blaugrana has seen him fast and applied in defence, and will be the fourth head office of the staff. A priori, it would have to be the relief of Hammered, but with the presence of Umtiti and of Lenglet seems complicated that it play when it rest only one of the central. What is clear is that will have more opportunities that the past year.
In spite of the arrival of Junior Firpo, anybody argues that the Catalan goes to go back to be the headline in the left side of the Barça. The past year did a temporadón, but arrived very tired at the end of season and went of which more distinguished remained in the semifinals against the Liverpool and in the final of Glass. In pre-season has been very well in attack and expects that it go back to be decisive.
The Hispanic-dominican arrives to be the relief of Alba. Only it has played a party in the Barcelona preparation, the first in front of the Naples. In the crash could him see something desubicado and had several errors in defence. In attack yes saw him more active and left details of the a lot that it can contribute. His physicist and his stride do him be a player to have very in account of face to the future.
The midfield player was quite toneless the past season and the age is beginning him to happen bill. In this pre-season has had lights and shadows, but the reality is that it follows him seeing two speeds underneath of what exije the football of nowadays. Frenkie Of Jong has arrived to remain and could loom the titularity of the of Badia.
Frenkie Of Jong
The Dutch has been the best of the pre-season in the Barça. It has shined whenever it has played and it has showed that it has it everything to mark a period in the Camp Nou. All what does does it well and has the dynamism that needed the centre of the field blaugrana. It is intelligent, technically is a delight and can break lines so much with a pass as in driving. With the permission of Griezmann, is the best signing of the Barcelona this year.
The Croat could leave of the Barça according to Valverde, perosu pre-season has been as so that it remain and go back to be indisputable. It has marked goals, has been remarkable in the game and has gone back to show that it can be important in this Barça. If it finishes leaving could be a very important drop for the midfield culé.
The one of Reus has gone back to his initial position, the one of mediocentro or inner. Valverde Has decided that it was the moment to plant him here to give him the titulartidad to Semedo in the side. The Catalan has fear in case it finish having less opportunities, but apparently in the preparation could be important in the half. Has quality, dynamism and power, qualities that the 'Txingurri' values in a midfield player and that they could do him play enough.
This has to be the season of Carles Aleñá. The canterano has to take a step forward this course after his year of adaptation. Valverde Has encouraged him and has him elogiado in press conference, and expects that it can be more important in the half. His pre-season has been good and sees him with hunger, but is missing to see if the trainer culé finish him giving the opportunities that deserves .
It has been the player of the filial that more has shined in pre-season. Has that something different that enamora to the fans every time that touches the ball. It has left a lot of destellos of quality and the fans wants to see him already in the first team regularly. The competition in the centre of the field makes him impossible to remain and is speaking that it could go out yielded to have minutes in the elite. His individual technician, his vision and his imagination do him be a differential footballer. In First could have place, but will be he the one who decide his future.
The Brazilian was too irregular the past course and expects that this year it was the one of his confirmation. It has to improve his physicist and he same already has admitted that is working in this. Only it has played 25 minutes in pre-season and will begin the campaign like acting, but expect big things of him. If it centres , it works and it plays as it knows it will be a key piece in the Barça of the present and of the future.
The Chilean was of the best in the final stretch of season, but this seems that it does not go him to cost of at all. Valverde Has him in very high esteem, but could be one of the means that go out by the 'overbooking' that there is in the midfield. It is a profile of footballer very different to the rest and, if it remains , along the year could go back to be very important.
The alone Brazilian played against the Naples in the second meeting of turns it American. It is the player that more possibilities has to go out of the Barça and his destination could be in Munich or in Paris. His quality does not argue , but his performance has left a lot that wish since you saw the blaugrana. The club has tired of him and wants to undo of his agreement, but no descarta that it can remain. In the changing room want him and Valverde would not put peros to that remained in the Camp Nou.
The French has been one of the victims of the arrival of Griezmann to the team. No longer it will be indisputable and this could have caused a change of mentality in him. It is working as never to be important in the Barça and in pre-season has seen him very active. It keeps on being very imprecise in his actions, but his speed and his desborde can change parties anytime. Against the Naples was decisive with a golazo and an assistance. If Neymar did not arrive, could be the year in which it consolidate at last in the club.
The French Is adapting fast to the Barça. It has cost him mark his first goal with the Barcelona T-shirt, but in all the other has been very well. It has moved very well between lines, has combined well with all the mates and already begun has to create a spectacular society with Luis Suárez. There are many win to see him with Leo Messi, with which could do one of the most magic duets of Europe. The Barça has him fichado so that it was the second sword of the Argentinian and expects more than him, but his first weeks like barcelonista have been good.
The charrúa faces a very important campaign for him in the Barcelona. With 32 years no longer is the one who was and has to accustom to play with a less powerful physicist. No longer it has the speed of before, but in pre-season has seen him with the same hunger and the same insitinto scorer of always. It has marked three goals in two parties and already has showed that it goes to understand very well with Griezmann. His big has to is in the Champions League, where will have to go back to be decisive after a lot of years without being it.
The canterano began the preparation being of the best, but party to party his light has gone turning off. It marked two so many against the Vissel Kobe in turns it Japanese, but since has not gone back to stand out. It is one of the candidates to remain in the first team, but seems that Abel Ruiz is advancing him by the right. If it does not remain in the Barça, will go out to a club of First, since has offers on of the table.
The Valencian incroporó late to the pre-season, but in his apparitions has dejdo good feelings. It is very of the taste of Valverde and in the club consider him one of the big perlas of the Masia. It has brushed the goal in the friendly contested and has quality as to be part of the rotation in the leading barcelonista. His future is an incógnita and these weeks have to be keys to know where will play the next season.
