The market of signings of the summer 2019 arrives with strength to the FC Barcelona, that has to Philippe Coutinho like one of the names stood out. After investing 120 40 million euros in his arrival, the carioca has gone of more to less, and what at the beginning were joys have transformed in some worries to which will touch to look for solution along the window estival.

The simplest alternative seems to put up for sale him, a decision that obviously has pros and contras. There are important obstacles so that PSG or Chelsea, his firmer beaux, attain an agreement by the crack, that for the time being is priced in no less than 100 'kilos'. But if it opts for giving him another opportunity or no fructifican the negotiations, there are other roads of performance.

If the Brazilian remains in the Camp Nou touches to help him to recover his best level, and is evident that has a lot of quality. The problem is that in the diagram barcelonista has not found his ideal place, that is not the one of midfield player but neither the one of left extreme. In the first causes a disequilibrium in the medullary that prejudices to the defensive balance, and in the second has showed sobradamente that does not feel comfortable.

Between the proposals for the next course, Ernesto Valverde has the one to use a training 4-2-3-1. In his first year predominated a 4-4-2, afterwards recovered the 4-3-3 classical and always has said that the best would be to use the tactics that better lace to all the pieces, so it could decant systematically that knows to perfection, since it has used it usually during his path in the benches.

With Sergio Busquets, Ivan Rakitic, Arturo Vidal, Arthur or Frenkie of Jong willing in the double pivote -the Croat and the Chilean even could act more advanced-, the reference would be Luis Suárez, and the Barça could take out party of the talent of all his half tips. Leo Messi, Ousmane Dembélé and even Malcom can occupy these intermediate positions, in which they also would fit possible signings like Antoine Griezmann. It would require mobilidad in attack and pressure and responsibility in defence, something that the technician already treats of inculcar to his pupilos.

In the concrete case of Coutinho, this is the configuration that has given him back the smile in the selection, since it can keep near of the area and explode his quality in the pass and in the shot -centred or something escorado-, is involved directly in the creation of game and does not depend exclusively of his speed for desbordar or to do coverages, since it is more arropado by his mates and this benefits him.

The Barça has to have care with the assessment of his signings

The problem that is having Coutinho have faced it other players of the Barça, when it brings them to play in positions in which they are not specialists. Some, as Ivan Rakitic, know to adapt to perfection, but others are loomed by a failure irremediable. For putting some example, to Burn Turan brought him like inner when it never had occupied this place, and when more it shined was when it had to suplir to Neymar, more near of a band where felt more comfortable. Instead of repositioning pieces, would be more suitable to adjust to the needs of the team, and more with a market dominated by the inflation like the current.
