To his almost 34 years, Sergio Busquets keeps on being fundamental in the diagram of the FC Barcelona. The Barcelona legend is more strengthened that never to the axis of the centre of the field of the culés and does not seem that it go it to soltar prompt. This has to , mainly, to the fault of a spare of guarantees in the staff for the footballer, that has seen as they have happened several players in his demarcation without being able to 'argue him' the place. The last of them was Frenkie of Jong,whose role after his arrival to the Barça happened to be a half of containment to a steering wheel with more arrival to the area.

However, the years do not happen in vain, and Xavi Hernández is conscious of this. The Catalan trainer leave clear that the club has to look for a substitute for the one of Badía, since this will not be for ever in the City Condal. "Busquets is not eternal. It is necessary to take it into account for the future. There is not a profile like the one of Sergio Busquets in the team. We have to find one. It is important that the planning of the team go by here. The Barça has to have two players by position. We do not have some positions bent and is important to do a good planning", ensured the egarense in the previous press conference to the meeting with the Celtic of Vigo.

In this stage, from the offices of Can Barça have put by the work to find him a replacement of level to the champion of the world, and have annotated three names in his 'diary' of future signings. The first of them is the midfield player of the Real Sociedad, Martín Zubimendi. Of all the candidates, east is the one who more likes in the technical body, since to his 23 years has gone back 'indispensable' for Imanol Bailiff. His good deal of balloon, added to his big defensive capacity, do it the substitute 'ideal' for 'Busi'. However, has agreement until 2025 with the 'txuri-urdin', and his clause of rescission of 60 millions would force to the culés to negotiate with the Basques, that would be a 'hard bone of roer'.

Of the same form, the Barcelona would follow trying the contracting of the player of the Wolverhampton, Rubén Neves. The Portuguese is an old known of the Catalan institution, that carries long showing interest in the mediocampista. The footballer would want to go out of England and from the Camp Nou have posited like possible destination for the player. His price, which round the 60 million euros, would be an obstacle for the operation, but the good relation between Joan Laporta and the agent of the player, Jorge Mendes, could facilitate the things.

An option 'far'

Finally, the name of Aurelién Tchouaméni has been linked with the barcelonistas in the last days. The 'jewel' of the French football has taken the determination to go out of the Monaco during the next market of signings, and his destination preferred was the Real Madrid. However, the merengues have descartado his contracting for this summer and the Barça could take advantage of the opportunity to carry it to his rows. Nevertheless, his high price (speak of 70 million euros) and the hard competition that would confront the culés (Liverpool, Chelsea and PSG walk after the steps of the player) do of this the option less 'feasible' for the Catalans.
