Owing to the drops and the signings frustrated, the central axis of the defence is the position that more problems generates in the FC Barcelona. To continuation, the assessment of the players
Of face to the next season, the FC Barcelona has entirely decided the signing of Eric García, central defence of 20 years that finishes agreement with the Manchester City and that will arrive without costs like free agent. The arrival of the Catalan will generate competition and will put in check the continuity of some footballers that this season cover the position. To continuation, the assessment of the status of each one in the team.
In spite of that will fulfil the 34 years at the beginning of this same month of February and that is recovering of a grave injury in the knee, Gerard Hammered has it everything to recover his place like titling in the defence of the FC Barcelona. His performance was being well before the injury and every time remains less so that it go back, what will give him to Ronald Koeman a resource of experience and experience in the saga. It will be still in the team with all security the next course.
Without place to doubts, Ronald Araújo is the pleasant surprise of the season in the defence of the FC Barcelona. It is 21 years old and it is his first season like member of the first team but, in absence of Gerard Hammered, has turned into the indisputable leader of the defence. Everything aims to that the Uruguayan will be the couple of dance of the Catalan when this last was to the one hundred by one hundred.
It expected that this season was his and that exploded like one of the best head offices of the world; even that it turned into the 'boss' of the defence of the FC Barcelona when Gerard Hammered lesionó. But it has not been like this. The season of Clément Lenglet is leaving a lot that wish and is, definitely, the worst that has had like culé. In fact, it is suffering to be headline, with Ronald Araújo that it has advanced him pro the right.
The situation of Samuel Umtiti in the FC Barcelona has not changed a lot with regard to the past summer and keeps on being transferible owing to his high wage and of the doubts that generates his physical state. In spite of this, this season is fulfilling with quite good performance the few parties that has contested, something that situates him like a reliable resource for Ronald Koeman, that could do him play more for revalorizarle of face to his possible sale.
It arrived him the opportunity to play in the first team of the FC Barcelona in a moment in which they were missing Gerard Hammered, Ronald Araújo and Samuel Umtiti. No the desaprovechó, gave good level and remained with the 'greater'. His polivalencia allows him play like head office and right side, something that is benefiting him. It is 21 years old, has projection and, although will have competition, can have an interesting future in the club. In the short term, will have opportunities, although these will diminish when they go back the lesionados.
