The Barcelona coach, Ernesto Valverde, met criticism after a loss in Champions League to Liverpool. This season his team is empowered with Griezmann and Frenkie de Jong.
Gerard Pique can play as a stopper. Sergi Roberto will be moved to play in midfield. Moussa Wague can be a rival to Nelson Semedo and the same situation is between Samuel Umtiti and Clement Lenglet.
Midfielders Sergio Busquets, Frenkie de Jong, Arthur, Sergi Roberto, and Carles Alena are supposed to stay in Barcelona and compete to be at the starting eleven. Philippe Coutinho, Rafinha Alcantara, Arturo Vidal, and Ivan Rakitic can find new clubs. Would it be a PSG? Let’s wait and see.
In attack there are four footballers and positions are three. We are talking about Lionel Messi, Griezmann, Ousmane Dembele and Luis Suarez. The weakest position has Dembele.
It seems that Barcelona has too many good players and all of them will compete to hold a regular spot. Change of Sergi Roberto position can indicate that Valverde will prefer a quicker style of game. The first match is against Athletico Bilbao on Friday.
