The presence of Barcelona in the transfer market has not ended. Despite the fact that the Spanish club have already closed deals for an unexpected number of up to 4 players, the new faces will have to continue to prepare each other in the remainder of the summer to be able to fill Ronald Koeman's squad with the best possible performances.
Undoubtedly, after the incorporations of Eric García, Sergio Agüero, Emerson Royal and Memphis Depay, the broader needs of the Blaugrana squad reside in the goal area and the left-back, two promotions of youth talents could be met without the need to tackle big transfers, with the presence of some of La Masía's most prolific homegrown players.
The two chosen
The departure of Norberto Neto and Júnior Firpo leaves Marc-André ter Stegen and Jordi Alba without competition for the position, a fact that could be solved with the call of Ronald Koeman to these two players:
- Iñaki Peña: the FC Barcelona 'B' goalkeeper could go from being the third goalkeeper on the squad to second place. A substitute for guarantees to play in the Copa del Rey and possible injuries replacement for the German goalkeeper.
- Alejandro Balde: the winger is one of the youth squad players who have generated the most noise in recent seasons. A lot of power, speed, self-confidence and quality for the side that has caused so many headaches in the last clubs campaigns.
