It is the main theme, today more than ever, at the Camp Nou. The days go by and there are still no lights of the continuity, or not, of Lionel Messi at FC Barcelona. The situation, of course, already worries Ronald Koeman himself, who will start preseason on Monday and still does not know if he will have the Argentine forward. The Dutch coach has been uneasy about it.

“When everything is not right, you have to be concerned, but I have confidence in the president (Joan Laporta) to solve this issue. It is important for the club and for the League that the best player in the world remains. It is important to know which players you are going to have. We know that there is a limit, we are in preseason and we are working on it ", confessed the coach.

On Monday, Barcelona will start the preseason, although without the players who have played in the Eurocup and the Copa América and those who will participate in the Olympic Games, and the squad is far from closed, both in the registration section and especially in the one of casualties.

The truth is that Barcelona is in a stage of forced modifications, since it will have to get rid of many of its players, so that Lionel Messi continues to play, so it is very difficult to make an analogy of how the squad would be. Thinking about the best of the scenarios, which would bring consequences such as the losses of Umtiti, Dembelé Griezmann, or Miralmen Pjanic, the team would be:

Marc-André ter Stegen, Ronald Araújo, Gerard Piqué, Clément Lenglet and Jordi Alba at the defense. In the middle, Frankie De Jong, Sergio Busquets and Ilaix Moriba. Up front, the two brand new reinforcements would join the Argentine star, forming a luxurious attack. Memphis Depay, Lionel Messi and Sergio Agüero.
