Many thought, after witnessing the two parties of League 2015-16 that contested Marlon Santos with the first team of the FC Barcelona in the last days, that with the exit of Jeremy Mathieu the central youngster Brazilian would have the opportunity to form part of the staff of the first team this season 2017-18 to the orders of Ernesto Valverde.

And the true is that like this it went during some months, until the technician extremeño decided that it did not convince him of the all the fault of experience of Marlon, what finish causing the course of the Brazilian to the Nice in shape of cession, so that foguee during a time in the French league and go back to the cape of a year much more curtido physical and mentally.

The question is that the Catalan press spoke long and tended during some days, at the beginning of the month of August, on the possibility that Íñigo Martínez could have been the fourth head office of the FC Barcelona in place of Marlon. The Basque player was had, had contacts of score by part of the Barça with the Real Sociedad and the clause of rescission was of 32 millions, affordable for a Barcelona that earned shortly after 222 millions by the traspaso of Neymar and that, besides, fichó to Paulinho by 40 'kilos'.

Vermaelen, the 'relief' of Marlon in the Barça

But if something has showed the technical office of the FC Barcelona these last campaigns is that it never leaves indifferent to anybody, and surprised the decision of no fichar to anybody and 'recover' as fourth head office to Thomas Vermaelen, that exceeds already the treintena of age and, in spite of his experience and good conditions, did not play hardly the past season in the Rome by fault of several injuries.

In definite, the same situation of always with the Belgian. The official parties that has played with the Barcelona can have the fingers of the hand because of his infinite injuries, that definitely also influence in his performance. If Vermaelen has to 'save' to the Barça when Mascherano, Umtiti or Hammered can not play... The Barça has a problem. This yes, with easy solution: throw of the filial.
