Although the Catalans encouraged in the market veraniego of signings to bend the majority of positions in the changing room, Ernesto Valverde has seen forced to look downwards, because the physical problems and the sanctions have gone back to situate a dangerous hole in the axis of the saga.

The charrúa is to exámen in this season, in which it will value if the best is that it give the jump to the first team or that leave to loan to continue progressing.
