So much the directive like the technical body of the FC Barcelona are satisfied with the final balance of the market estival. The five reinforcements fichados have allowed to reinforce the staff in all his lines, although Xavi Hernández, perhaps, had preferred fichar to another mediocentro mixed. The egarense bent by Giovani Celso, but the Tottenham descartó negotiate by the cession of the Argentinian.

In this sense, 'Footmercato' ensures that, during the day of the Friday, the directive tanteó the possibility of fichar to Azzedine Ounahi. The Moroccan player already was in the orbit culé after the World-wide, but the problems of the club with the 'Fair Play' financial left free the way to the Olympique of Marseilles for ficharle. The one of Casablanca led the centre of the field of his selection beside Sofyan Amrabat, carrying to Morocco to a historical fourth place in Qatar.

Ounahi Had fit in the diagram of Xavi

Regarding the previous season, the Barça has less alternative in the centre of the field in the 2023/24. The exits of Franck Kessié and Pablo Tower, in addition to the traspaso of Nico González to the Port wine, do that, in this moment, neither Frenkie of Jong neither Oriol Romeu have a natural replacement. Ounahi Had fit in the plans of Xavi like variant to the Dutch and to the Spanish, but there was not margin to negotiate by his cession with the Marseilles.

The Moroccan has valid agreement until June of 2027 and has begun very well the season, with a so much in his first three apparitions (209 minutes). The one of Casablanca suffered a fracture in his right foot in a friendly international to finals of March, losing the final stretch of the season after only contest 154 minutes with the Olympique from his arrival in January.

Sergi Roberto and Cancel can help to the centre of the field culé

For the moment, the centre of the field culé only has a drop (Pedri). In case of not explaining in some party with Romeu or Frenkie, is very likely that so much Sergi Roberto as I Cancel advance lines to help in the recovery. Eric García also could exert the function of pivote, but preferred to leave to the Girona in search of more leadership.
