Calendar of FC Barcelona

The FC Barcelona pretends to achieve the incorporation of a left extreme for the season that comes, as long as the Fair Play financial allow it. The culés have to carry out several operations that allow him have sufficient solvency to go out to the market and, also, inscribe to the players that are slopes. The process will be slow and, surely, it will be necessary to expect to the month of July to have 'news' and solutions.

In the meantime, from the sportive area are evaluating the different alternative that offers the market of signings. For the left extreme there are two names that have highlighted above the rest: Nico Williams (Athletic Club) and Luis Díaz (Liverpool). In FCBN, review the profiles of both jugadore and which would fit easily in the team of Hansi Flick for the season that comes:

Nico Williams, youth and swift promotion in the elite

The name of the extreme of the Athletic Club has been in the list of futuribles of the Barça from does a long time, by different reasons. It is a player that, in spite of having only 21 years, has turned into one of the big offensive leaders of the 'lions' and one of the 'culprits' that, for example, have won the Glass of the King 2023/2024 and are classified for the next edition of the Europe League. It is one of the extremes more desequilibrantes of Spain and already is fixed in the absolute selection of Luis de la Fuente.

The minor of Williams is a very swift footballer that, constantly, treats to benefit of the wear that produces in his rival follow his careers by the band, generates a lot of advantages and spaces that benefit him so much to him as to his mates so that they are able to arrive on second line. His explosion goes directly tied to his speed, but also is a very intelligent profile that has known to understand when has to split from a more external position, hit to the band, or when has to put by the internal corridors. Of there that it was so difficult of descifrar for his rivals and that, usually, need a collective labeling.

Still it is very young and has gone 'improving' in key appearances like the reading of the game and how take out advantages from this, in addition to understanding the ideal time for his desmarques of support and achieve an important distance against his defender that him of 'space' of manoeuvre and more eases to approach to the rival area. This, added to his collaborations in defence, a point that has to correct to measure that it go growing, because usually it fails in individual duels and aerial disputes, have turned him into one of the players with greater projection in Spain.

It is a footballer in full evolution and, thus, understands that they still have points in which it has to take a step forward, as it is the case of the driving or in contexts of positional game, where has seen , in a lot of opportunities, touching more the balloon and 'taking' more in his actions, what derives in losses of time and of the spherical in a lot of opportunities. Besides, it is used to to opt by more individualities of which would have, especially in stages complicated in which the rival pobla the area and has complicated to advance by himself same. It has to insist more in the collective actions... But has a whole career by in front to go improving.

Luis Díaz, profile more settled and with experience

With the international with Colombia the debate always is present because, although it is one of the most striking extremes that have 'dominated' in Europe in the last times, demands him more leadership and impact to his 27 years. It has seen wrapped in several physical problems that have braked his progression in the Liverpool, but follows him being missing that 'extra step' to convince. It had marvelled in the Port wine, but in Anfield has remained the feeling that they expect that it do more. It is a very interesting profile and understands perfectly that the Barça can be behind him.

It is an extreme much more fact, by his age and path, with an infinity of resources to generate superiorities and plant in the rival area to define he or enable to his mates. It bases constantly in his speed (and his changes), with the option of desacelerar with ease if the played requires it to find a finish or lines of pass to a mate. It allows him surpass to rivals and generate spaces; factors that do him a very difficult footballer of descifrar and detain... Because it takes out his arsenal of resources: cuts, combinaiones, sprints...

His big skills causes that it was difficult to defend him with an alone player, by what generally have to put him a double mark to try minizarle. It is a machine to generate danger, but also a big definidor. Has a big strike from long distance, whereas it is used to to help in the shrinkings sure enough and support to the one who play in the side, delivering the works in defence, a point that, although it fulfils, has to follow improving to be more decisive.

It is a footballer that, unlike Nico, is much more fact and has less than 'learn' or improve, although yes it is necessary to highlight the fact that it signs series without 'appear' in the markers, already was with goals or assistances. It is not lower the data that, in the past season, in 51 parties (3.613 minutes) only annotated 13 goals and delivered five assistances. It goes out to a participation (goal/assistance) each 200 minutes, figures very low for an extreme that, in his day, cost 45 million fixed euros more 15 'kilos' in variables.
