The center of the field of FC Barcelona is the area of the field in which there is more competition, even with an 'overbooking of soccer players. Valverde begins to have clear preferences
After more than two months of official competition, Ernesto Valverde begins to show which are his favourite letters to form the alignments. One of the big doubts that there was at the beginning of season was about which type of bet would make the technician extremeño to form his trio of midfield players title, something that begins to clarificarse.
Until the moment, Frenkie of Jong, flamante signing that the Barça closed in January, keeps like indisputable in the position of right interior. To his side, Arthur Melo, in spite of resting against the Real Valladolid, also is enjoying of major prominence and both are surrendering to a good level with a style of game very near to the that teachs to the youngsters, from the inferior categories of the Masia.
The third footballer with major prominence in the team is Sergio Busquets, that follows keeping as the anchor of this centre of the field by in front of the defence. Beside Of Jong and Arthur, forms a trident of 'peloteros' that has like aim bet by the possession of the ball, although no in all the parties is working as, for example, in the last duel of Champions League against the Slavia of Prague.
Since the Catalan, the Dutch and the Brazilian form the trio apparently title, there is a fourth man that is winning on the field opportunities to be able to oust to any of them. It treats of Arturo Vidal, that has an entirely distinct profile, since it is a midfield player of physical deployment, of pressure and arrival from second line. His level does him be very useful in the team and entirely indispensable for Ernesto Valverde.
On the other hand, it does not be necessary to forget of Sergi Roberto, the big joker of the FC Barcelona by his capacity to adapt to the places of mediocentro, of interior and of right side. The Catalan began having prominence in the medullary, but the últomas injuries in defence have gone back to do that Valverde opt for delaying his position to the saga.
Rakitic And Aleñá, forgotten with options to go in January
The case of Ivan Rakitic is the more extreme of the team, becoming a key piece for the Txingurri to a player of bench and second parts. His dissatisfaction and the fact to have poster in Europe do to think in a possible course in winter. Finally, the case of Carles Aleñá, a player condemned by 45 bad minutes against the Athletic Club that has not gone back to play since and that, like the Croat, could leave in January in search of opportunities.
