One of the a lot of keys of the best FC Barcelona of the history was to have, in the left side, two reliable options and compatible. Abidal Was the headline, although Sylvinho became to title in the final of the Champions of Rome 2009 and Maxwell was a safe of life for Guardiola. Distinct profiles, total efficiency. 

From it does years, Jordi Alba has adueñado of the left lane, but the injuries have prevented him show a regularity on a long-term basis. And when this has occurred, his relief has generated doubts. Neither Adriano -also of glass-, neither Mathieu neither Digne reach the level that demands this style. 

By this reason Robert Fernández and his team of observers carry months tracking the market to find a side that complement to the of Hospitalet and can, to his time, put him pressure (competition). Between the multiple names that there is on of the table stands out the one of Ricardo Rodríguez, of 24 years.

Ricardo Rodríguez, offensive talent that it wants to all Europe

Pretended already by Arsenal and Real Madrid, Ricardo Rodríguez plays at present in the Wolfsburgo, that is not signing precisely a good campaign in the Bundesliga. The Swiss, of Spanish ancestry, has marked two goals in 27 parties and his price could not surpassing the 25 million euros -although has agreement until 2019-. 

The first time that began to sound the name of Ricardo Rodríguez for the observers was in the World-wide Or17 that won Switzerland in the year 2009 with Shaquiri like star. His left-handed marvelled to many, as well as his technical capacity and his powerful shot from out of the area. Many arrive him to describe like extreme, although defensivamente does not lose the back and help in the corners (1,80m).

In any case is an option more for a Barça that it will have to hit this time in the investment, that will not be little, because a lot of European teams are in the market looking for precisely a left-handed side.
