Few barcelonistas expected the past Saturday, in the rest of the party that the FC Barcelona played against the Real Betis, the bad news that showed after the replacement of Ansu Fati by apparent prevention. The Hispanic-bissauguineano resintió of an entrance of Aissa Mandi but could follow, by what went a hard hit the diagnostic that announced hardly three hours afterwards: that suffered a break in the meniscus of the left knee.

This Monday, Ansu Fati was operated of the knee and the FC Barcelona estimated his time of recovery in four months. A very important reverse for Ronald Koeman, that considered to the canterano a key player in his alignments and that, before his injury, already demanded a signing to reinforce the offensive plot. The grave injury of the Hispanic-bissauguineano does that the urgencies still are more evident in the forward.

The problem is that the pandemia has left the economy of the very touched club and that goes to be complicated to reinforce to the team with some player, even if it treats of a Memphis Depay that would arrive to low cost due to the fact that it finishes agreement in June. It is thus that touches to look for solutions and in the quarry there is one: Konrad de la Fuente, American forward that shined by his portentosa staged during the past pre-season.

To his 19 years, Konrad de la Fuente is a right-handed footballer that is used to to play to leg changed in the position of left extreme, although also it can adapt in the right side. During the friendly of September, gave some destellos of class showing his tremenda speed, his technician and his ease for desbordar. A style of player in roads of extinction in the modern football.

Ronald Koeman remained marvelled by the portentosa quality of the North American forward and like this recognised it publicly, in addition to including him several times in the list of summoned in the start of LaLiga. Without Ansu Fati, Ousmane Dembélé and Francisco Trincao are the two only pure extremes of the staff, but both find more comfortable playing by the right. It is thus that Konrad de la Fuente, accustomed to play by the left, can win weight in the team.

Konrad de la Fuente, a different player

The profile of game of Konrad de la Fuente is in roads of extinction, since it is of those pure extremes that open the field and that do not fear in encarar to his marker with insistence. Besides, it is fast and is versatile to the hour to go out inside or by out, contributing a similar profile to the of players like Ouismane Dembélé or the own Ansu Fati and giving variants to Pedri and Philippe Coutinho, that seem to be those that from now will deliver the cake in the left extreme.
