Already it does some seasons that the FC Barcelona is losing paulatinamente the essence of the game of position and of possession that so many joys has carried during lustros. Besides, the fault of competitiveness of the team in big parties during the last months would have carried to take important decisions. It is thus that the club pretends to reinforce the staff​ with several incorporations.

The first, already enclosed, is the one of Francisco Trincao, young extreme of the Benfica. Besides, also they will arrive two defences -a central and a side- and a leading centre, being Lautaro Martínez the one who more likes to the sportive direction. The staff will recover also the presence of Carles Aleñá, yielded to the Real Betis, and will elevate the leadership of players like Riqui Puig in the case of the drops more than likely of Arturo Vidal or Ivan Rakitic.

Nevertheless, according to the informations published by the newspaper Sport this same Sunday, the FC Barcelona has planned another signing whose profile had not trascended up to now. It treats of a physical midfield player, that have route and work to strengthen a medullary that mostly will be technical, with players like Arthur Melo or Frenkie of Jong.

Said media specifies that the signing of this midfield player would be of the profile of footballers like Touré Yaya or Seydou Keita, that apparently did not seem players with 'DNA Barça' but that finish mixing to perfection with the game of touch of men like Xavi Hernández or Andrés Iniesta. The informations aim that Catalan club already has selected to several candidates for the place.

The true is that, during the last seasons, the FC Barcelona has incorporated to footballers that apparently neither fit in the philosophy of game culé but that have finish working frankly well. The best examples of this have been Paulinho Bezerra, that gave a quite good year, or Arturo Vidal, that seems that it will finish playing in the Series To the next campaign.

Looking for a '4'

The examples of Paulinho or Arturo Vidal went focused to this type of physical footballer, but are not exactly of the profile that the Barça will look for. The club is more interested in a '4', a mediocentro to play by in front of the defence as it did Touré before the explosion of Sergio Busquets. In definite, a physical footballer but that no desentone technically at the side of the ones of Jong, Arthur or Aleñá.
