In the last decade, the FC Barcelona has had a generation irrepetible of footballers that have allowed to the club increase his list of winners with tens of titles. Logically, the step of the time is doing mella in the key footballers, with some that already have left of the team -as Xavi Hernández or Andrés Iniesta- and others that begin to notice that his physicist no longer is the one who was.

Thus, from the technical office bets from does some seasons by fichar to young footballers with a profile of game that fit with the one of the Masia, based in the pressure, the offensive game and the possession. Men like Arthur Melo or Frenkie of Jong have arrived to the team to remain and, over time, to displace to players that have been important in the last years.

To day of today, the one who more has suffered the consequences of the change generacional is Ivan Rakitic that, to his 31 years and after carrying varied being a key player that played it practically everything, has seen relegado to the paper of acting by the emergent paper of footballers like the Dutch or the Brazilian.

One of the next, already was in this campaign or in the following, can be Sergio Busquets. After years without direct competition in his place, now finds that Of Jong, with hardly 22 years, offers full guarantees as much as mediocentro as of interior. To his 31 years, the one of Badia will have to improve in this irregularity that has characterised him in the last seasons.

Griezmann, presionado

Antoine Griezmann arrived to the FC Barcelona this same summer like signing crashes, but can have topado with two important obstacles of face to win the place. The first is the one of his compatriot and fellow Ousmane Dembélé, that seems to have an attitude of work much more centred and an explosive performance that it can separate to the ex athletic of the eleven if it attains no lesionarse so much.

The second obstacle is Ansu Fati, a youngster of 16 years that has woken up the affection of all the barcelonismo by his enormous talent and his blatant game. It is true that Griezmann has more status, but at the end the performance is what finish imposing and, in this start of campaign, the team seems to work better with Dembélé and Ansu that with the 'principito'. Pressure for the French, that also can finish displaced.
