For several months, since the defeat against Bayern Munich in the Champions League all the cameras are pointing to Barcelona. Luis Suárez, Arturo Vidal and Ivan Rakitic have already left. Will Sergio Busquets be the next one? Is he still essential to the structure of the team?
Ronald Koeman planned a team with Busquets playing aside Frenkie De Jong, but let’s be honest, they play in the same position. Both of theme is really complete and useful players not only in Barcelona, but for any Europe big team. But what will happen when FC Barcelona is losing a match and the coach need an offensive option?
Clearly one of them would have to be replaced, and there we will see which one is more important for that circumstance. The 32-year-old Spanish has much more experience, but Frenkie is a young star with more pace and energy. It is useful for the coach to have both of them, but sooner or later he will have to choose one.
The only thing we know now is that the options in the midfield are less than ever in FC Barcelona. With the arrival of Miralem Pjanic, it will not be easy to set a staring midfield on the pitch, but when the times comes, Koeman will have to do it. Can Pjanic, Busquets and De Jong play together?
