For anybody is a secret that the FC Barcelona has several open folders inside the staff of face to the next season. The club no only keeps attentive to the the pending renewals and to the registration of his footballers inside the mass salarial, but also in those reinforcements that can concretise during the following window of signings.

Although the right side and the position of pivote are two needs, also the spare of Robert Lewandowski is a key absence after the exit of Memphis Depay. The Pole does not have a substitute of guarantees and several media have aimed that the aim of the Barça would go through to incorporate to Marcus Thuram, the '9' of the Borussia Mönchengladbach, the one who finishes agreement in June and would not have in his plans renew.

To his 25 years, accumulates 14 goals and four assistances in the 22 commitments that has contested in the season, being one of the most important pieces inside the conjoint Teutonic. From the sportive direction culé handle reports very positive on his possible adaptation to the style of game of the club, in addition to that his polivalencia allows him work like referent in the area and also by the left side, something that likes a lot to Xavi Hernández.

With 1.92 metres of height, is an aerial threat and also a traspaso amortizable for the economy barcelonista. His age and condition of free agent turn him into an opportunity of market with a lot of margin of improvement, added to the fact that his father, Lilian Thuram, already dressed the elastic Barcelona during the seasons 2006 and 2008. To the equal that Andreas Christensen and Franck Kessié, will have opportunities inside the eleven that they could leave him like a fixed in the alignments, already was by the band or as leading centre.

Where it would fit better?

If the Barcelona closes his movement during the summer, will be a new piece so that the trainer distribute him by all the offensive front. Already with the French selection showed to be a player of team when keeping a role of acting, although in the Spotify Camp Nou will look for to do with a place to title. 'Lewy' Still subtract him 3 years more than agreement and keeps on being determinant like forward, although it could go in in rotation so that the French add minutes in each party.

So much with France as with the Borussia has kept the position of '9', but if there is something that differentiates to Xavi is the capacity to change totally the roles of his footballers so that they can be multifuncionales. Sergi Roberto can act like midfield player and lateral, whereas Jules Koundé and Ronald Araújo also have left the axis of the saga in several opportunities to work by the right side. Gavi Has happened to be midfield player to false extreme after the injury of Ousmane Dembélé, by what would not be surprise that Thuram was displaced to the left extreme in case that Lewandowski keep his intact level. Anyway, it will be necessary to see if the Catalans concretise his signing and advance to clubs like Arsenal and Inter of Milan, those who also want to do with his services.
