The FC Barcelona surpassed to the Arsenal in the Gamper by 2-1 in a party in which the culés were of less to more to finish conquering his trophy. Luis Suárez was the author of the so much of the victory in the last minute and went back of his holidays of the best possible way. After the crash, Ernesto Valverde analysed the meeting and spoke of the 'overbooking' that there is in the centre of the field culé.

From it does several weeks is speaking of the quantity of footballers that has the Barcelona in the half and of the problem that this could generate. The 'Txingurri' seem to have darse# cuenta of this and left to fall that of here to that it finish the market of signings veraniego could have some exit and also some arrival. "In the centre of the field there are quite a lot of players and already will see if it occurs something. I do not know if it can close some exit or incorporation", confirmed.

Of all the midfield players with which explains the Barça there is varied that they are fixed and that do not run danger. Sergio Busquets, Frenkie of Jong​, Arthur Melo, Carles Aleñá and Sergi Roberto seems that they are fixed in the staff, but Ivan Rakitic and Arturo Vidal himself could go out. The Barcelona trainer, in fact, commented that the Chilean could play less this course because there is a lot of more competition in the midfield that the past year.

The own Valverde has caused that in the centre of the field this campaign go to have a footballer with which did not explain . Sergi Roberto will go back to his natural position in the half and the 'Txingurri' thinks that can contribute him a lot of things to the team. "It is a midfield player that the first crash of side did it in Saint Mamés for suplir to Dani Alves. It has adapted well, but the position of half has it recognised. It can play of interior or of mediocentro. It gives energy in the centre of the field", aimed.

Of Jong seems that it will be indisputable in this Barça, whereas Busquets seems that every time it is it less. The one of Badia will have to struggle more than ever by the place and will have a fierce competition for playing. Aleñá Wants to keep growing and could take a step forward, the same that Arthur that it has to confirm like the brain of the team. Besides, Riqui Puig is demolishing the door of the first team to the big and is deserving more minutes every time that plays.

The future of Rakitic and Vidal

Valverde Goes to have it very complicated so that they can play all the means and does not go to be simple that are all happy with his minutes of game. It seems that the bets of the club and of the technician are clear and are the Rakitic or Vidal those that go to see more prejudiced. Also it could leave a Coutinho that every time has less place in the forward and that neither has already place in the half.

Valverde Opened him the door of exit to Rakitic does several weeks and has done something seemed with Vidal this past Sunday. Both seem to have more ballots that any to go out of the Barcelona and would not be of extrañar that went even the two if it arrived some good offer. The normal, this yes, seems that it would be that only it left one. The Croat could go in somehow in the operation of Neymar and Vidal could have an offer of the Inter, that also wants to to the ex sevillista.
