Calendar of FC Barcelona

To each week that happens, the FC Barcelona seems to have more impossible the signing of Marco Verratti, for the time being the only midfield player that could assume the role of creation and distribution of game that had antaño Xavi Hernández. Fortunately, with Sergio Busquets and Rakitic to good level the Barcelona has ensured some provision in the half field, to fault of a third component that misses .

André Gomes, Denis Suárez, Rafinha Alcántara and Burn Turan have not attained to fill the enormous gap that leaves Andrés Iniesta when it is not available to be ranged, or simply when it is not to the one hundred by one hundred on the lawn. To his 33 years, the one of Fuentealbilla follows shining by forced marches like a "Supernova" to which already remains him very little light that give in the international football.

It could turn off completely this next campaign, and thus Ernesto Valverde would have foreseen to use him more like an effective of luxury for the bench, as it did Luis Enrique with Xavi Hernández in the season of the triplete 2014-15.

The question is that, if finally it does not arrive Verratti and neither Paulinho neither N'Zonzi, other midfield players that also have sounded for the team blaugrana, Sergi Roberto could purchase the sufficient confidence as for no desaprovechar an opportunity of gold: the one to consolidate finally in the titularity and no like right side, but in his natural position.

Sergi Roberto can go back to explode... Now in his place

Sergi Roberto is able to act practically in any position of the field, but the places of interior are in which better can explode his technical qualities, of vision of game and arrival to the contrary area. Also it is an excellent recuperador of balloons and, as Iniesta, is able to handle the times and know when brake or accelerate the game.

It can that the FC Barcelona no fiche to Verratti this summer, but can also that this serve so that Sergi Roberto go back to explode by enésima time, in this occasion to consolidate like midfield player title.

Luckily, will have like minimum a season more to learn in the trainings of the same Andrés Iniesta, that will help him in all what was in his hands. A half field Busquets-Rakitic-Roberto does not sound at all badly.
