To his 20 years, Ousmane Dembélé will need minutes without too many interruptions to progress as it is owed in the FC Barcelona. If Antoine Griezmann lands this summer in the Camp Nou, the evolution of Dembélé will remain in risk

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Already it does several months that speaks of the possibility that the FC Barcelona, in spite of the big staff that already has in his rows, do this next summer with the signing of Antoine Griezmann to do even more lethal his flank of attack. The French would arrive by a clause of rescission that would not go down of the 100 million euros, and would be a piece of luxury for the Barça.

However, the question is: How it would fit Ernesto Valverde to Antoine Griezmann in a staff in which they already are Leo Messi, Luis Suárez, Philippe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembélé?. Five men of world-wide size and a puzzle difficult to resolve.

One of the big virtues of Griezmann is his versatility in the positions of attack. We have seen him play in tip, by behind the forward or until in the band, that, in fact, is where played in the Real Sociedad and where achieved to call the attention of the club 'colchonero'. This versatility is key to be compatible with Leo Messi, that enjoys of total freedom in his mobility by all the offensive front.

What would happen with Ousmane Dembélé?

Nevertheless, it is necessary to take into account that no only would share attack with Leo Messi, but also it would do it with Coutinho, Dembélé and Luis Suárez. The most likely is that we could see to a Griezmann splitting from the band and coming to the centre.

The performance of the French is upper when has to a 'nine' that fix him to the central, since his arrivals by surprise from second line added to his smell of goal do him easier arrive to the area freed to be able to hurt. This yes, could hamper the progression of a Dembélé that probably would have to compete with his compatriot to win the minutes in the Barça.

A problem of dream for Valverde

A problem added for the adaptation and hatching of the young footballer Frenchman, that for the moment has not been able to explode by the injuries and the fault of confidence, and to the one who the competition by Griezmann could even 'bury' in the Barcelona group.

Regarding Griezmann, is an unpredictable player, goleador and to the that loves him associate, a key appearance to dress of Barcelona. For I satisfy, also it knows what is to play in LaLiga. His arrival probably would force to see to players like Leo Messi or Philippe Coutinho in positions more retarded. If the French finish arriving, blessed problem for Ernesto Valverde... As long as it fit all the pieces of the puzzle.
