The FC Barcelona has a staff more than competitive to face the challenges of the present season, but already thinks in the course 2017-18 and in which will be the positions to be followed reinforcing in the team trained by Luis Enrique

Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona already has recovered the competitive rhythm with good results harvested in the last parties of League Santander, Glass of Rey and UEFA Champions League. However, these first months of competition have left clear to the technical body of Luis Enrique and to the technical office of Robert Fernández that, of face to the next market of summer, the staff will need to go back to reinforce .

It will do of surgical and punctual way, without tackling six signings like this past summer, but even so it will guarantee the arrival of young footballers that can help to the team to be followed growing, in search of the relief generacional that little by little goes establishing in the team.

Like this the things, and since Luis Enrique is puliendo to André Gomes to use it like mediocentro when Sergio Busquets can not be available in the alignments of the FC Barcelona, the club would need so only reinforce two basic positions to finish of ultimar a staff that is allocated to continue harvesting successes to world-wide level, although neither descarta that they arrive new incorporations for other positions.

Head office and carrilero, the two positions prioritarias

The places prioritarios to cover would be the ones of right side and head office, where the FC Barcelona is suffering some deficits by distinct reasons. At present the Barça has Sergi Roberto and with Aleix Vidal for the right-handed lane of the defence. However, and although Aleix Vidal little by little is recovering his place in the diagrams of Luis Enrique, would wish fichar to a player that can "oxigenar" to Sergi Roberto, being for the time being Joao Cancel the preferred for said function, and having to his 22 years a big future by in front.

The centre of the saga is another position that will have to be reinforced given the age of several footballers that play here. Jeremy Mathieu could go out next summer and Javier Mascherano begins to notice the age. In this sense, and independently of if Marlon Santos finish having or no the next season index card of the first team, seems that the Barça will attend to the market to close the signing of a central of present and, especially, future. Yerry Mina and Davinson Sánchez are to day of today the favourites, expecting that one of them turn into the new Samuel Umtiti of the Barça.
