Although the Barcelona club explains a centre of the privileged field to level of talent with names like Frenkie of Jong, Pedri González, İlkay Gündoğan and Fermín López, all share a mainly offensive vocation and are not accustomed to the brush netamente defensive.

Under this premise, the Catalan picture lacks a mediocentro reliable that can strengthen defensivamente the medullary zone and that to his time can collaborate in works of attack. This campaign 23/24, theoretically this role recaería in the shoulders of Oriol Romeu, but unfortunately the native of Ulldecona has not been to the height of the constant requirements of the Barça.

In front of this situation, Xavi Hernández has tested several modifications in the zone, using to Of Jong, Gündogan and even Andreas Christensen, defender that already has played like pivote in his selection and other clubs, but no in the Barça. All these solutions half, since the Catalan cast is conscious that it will need fichar a mediocentro contrasted during the summer, and has stipulated a profile for this.

The FC Barcelona would look for a similar profile to the of Yaya Touré

The ex of the Manchester City, enjoyed of a big versatility, since it could play so much of pivote as of head office. Besides, it contributed to the Catalan square a remarkable deployment and a lot of physical power, which complemented with a very good technician to treat the balloon, very good capacity for incursionar to contrary field and a big shot of average and long distance. With this, incrustó in a 4-3-3 that had Xavi Hernández like immovable name in the medullary zone and other pieces like Andrés Iniesta, Seydou Keita and Gudjohnsen.

The alternatives evaluated by the Barcelona picture

In the actuality, the FC Barcelona values the idea to find a new player with this profile. For example, it has given to know the interest showed Amadou Onana of the Everton, quien has showed good provision to physical level and capacity to take out the balloon played, and in Bruno Guimarãis of the Newcastle, although this option would be costlier economically speaking. All these are considerable alternatives for a Barça that needs a mediocentro reliable and can not depend only of the irruption the young talents of The Masia, as Pau Prim (17) and Marc Bernal (16), those who still are in process of maduration futbolística and would not owe perhaps be exposed to a position that requires key in the terrain of game and that requires immediate results.
