The Dutch midfield player of the Liverpool, Georginio Wijnaldum, already could be landing in the Barça if the directive of the Paris Saint-Germain had not done him this exorbitante economic offer. The footballer of 30 years was a request reiterated of Ronald Koeman from his arrival to the charge like míster of the Barcelona, but now that it knows that it will not come.

As a result of this, the question is if the Barcelona club will follow looking for to a footballer like him or if it will see the positive side and will opt will take out benefit of what already has in his rows to give him more confidence and responsibility to Ilaix Moriba, one of the young promises and that have turned into one of the disclosures of the "era Koeman".

One of the interrogantes constant on the arrival of the Dutch, was if his position in the first team could brake the exert of Ilaix, but since the midfield player of the "reds" seems that it will land in the PSG, this could leave to be a problem. It is truth that Ilaix still is very young, fulfilled 18 years in January and that the Barça is a team that, as all the big teams, demands a lot. Already it said it Joan Laporta: there are not seasons of transition.

However, the youngster oriundo of Guinea Conakry has known no only be to the height of the circumstances, but it has surpassed the expectations that had of him when it has given him an opportunity. Besides, it has showed to have what requires to do a place between the big Barcelona players.

Amazing numbers

The 18 parties in which it has played Ilaix the past season were a big learning for his second year, that has to be the one of the confirmation. The youngster did not leave avasallar in any moment and showed an every time better performance with the step of the parties. Even it arrived to show his powerful shot and projected in the classical of Alfredo gave Stéfano.

It marked a golazo in The Sadar and delivered three assistances in 672 minutes to the highest level. Trincao (In front of the Alavés), Messi (in front of the Seville) and Dembélé (in the duel in front of the Real Sociedad) were the benefited of the same.

As if all this was not quite impressive, Ilaix showed a capacity that values a lot in the Barça, a club that enorgullece of his quarry, since this reinforced without problems to the Barça B when it did fault without that it showed mella in his quality. It could not it do in the playoff of promotion by the sanction of Of Jong.

Pending renewal

An important chapter in what it has been Ilaix Moriba with the Barcelona team is to guarantee his continuity. The midfield player has reiterated that his intention is to follow with the culés and although his agreement finishes in 2022, his surprising irruption forces to negotiate the best for the two parts, before another club advance him to Laporta.

Now, the sportive managers of the Barça will have to decide if follow looking for in the market to another player like Wijnaldum, or bet by a footballer to the that Koeman already knows very well and has given prominence him. If the directive of the club trusts so much in The Masia as it alleges, would have to give him more opportunities to Ilaix now that it is little likely that Wijnaldum seen the Barcelona colours.
