From the Masia, tries form to players with 'DNA Barça' so that they can give the jump to the upper categories with a style forged to base of possession, of association and to dominate to the rival having the balloon. Something for what the midfield players are fundamental pieces.

Since they left Xavi Hernández and Andrés Iniesta, in the Barça look for players -already was in the inferior categories or in the market of signings- that have his same profile of game. In base to this arrived Quique Setién to the bench of the FC Barcelona, always with the aim to recover the philosophy of game that did to win so many titles and that had his epicentre in the control of the medullary.

For the Cantabrian technician, that employs a system of game 4-3-3, there are two totally indisputable players: Sergio Busquets and Frenkie of Jong. The Catalan plays like mediocentro by in front of the defence, gives balance to the team by means of his tactical intelligence and gives exit to the balloon thanks to his technical quality. The Dutch, by his part, plays like interior showing fit well in the style culé.

More doubts there is in the third place of the centre of the field, that contest it to him three players of distinct profiles: Arturo Vidal, a todoterreno that contributes physical by means of arrival and pressure; Arthur Melo, a less physical footballer that the Chilean but more technical to ensure more control; and Ivan Rakitic, a more versatile midfield player that his two mates that carries years being key but that does not go through his best moment.
