FC Barcelona already find themselves in the United States preparing for the pre-season rounds which will face the American parquet floor. They are 28 footballers who find themselves in Miami, summoned by Xavi Hernández to conform the Barcelona expedition which will see faces with Inter Miami, Real Madrid, Juventus and the New York Network Bulls. Inside these 28 characters, find Marc Casadó, Abde, Arnau Tenas, Balde and Pablo Tower, 5 of the club’s “jewels” who will seek to convince Xavi in the friendly encounter.
The case of the 21-year-old goalkeeper is complicated. The footballer occupied the position of third goalkeeper and trained with the first staff throughout the past season. In Barça Atlètic is the title ‘indisputable’ and wanted to follow by being part of the place of the egarense whenever he presented the opportunity. However, the arrival of Iñaki Crag could leave him a role of witness in the staff and this would slow down his development, by which its future is an incógnita. In the meantime, he takes advantage of his opportunity by turning it around.
For his part, Alejandro Balde was seriously injured by a serious injury to his right ankle which put a damper on his development as a first-team player. Nevertheless, while he kept himself healthy under Xavi, his performance did not convince the egarense, the one who preferred Sergiño Dest above him despite it not being his natural position. . Now, and in view of the difficulties that have delayed the commitment of Marcos Alonso, the 18-year-old full-back will seek to show him to his coach that his qualities are sufficient to be Jordi Alba’s alternative.
Distinct is the case of Abde, whose imbalance and ability to overflow are very much to the taste of de Terrassa, the one who has been his great valet since his arrival at the culé bench. The extreme 20-year-old, arrived from Hercules last summer, is one of the footballers with greater projection inside the club, those who have decided to extend his agreement until 2026. However, the recent incorporations leave him without a place in the staff, for which the Catalans will seek a transfer to him during this summer to foguearse in the football of First Division, although in the North American land will have opportunities to show his great level.
‘Perlas’ From midfield
For his part, Marc Casadó expects to take advantage of the pre-season to make an “appointment” within the Barcelona world. The midfielder born in Sant Pere de Vilamajor arrived at City Condal in the relevant 2016 from Damm and during this campaign will belong to Barça Atlètic. At the age of 18 was part of all the lower categories of the Barcelona institution, in addition to being international with the Spanish selection. From now on, Xavi will have him under his command to confirm the good report he manages from the player.
Finally, Pablo Tour will seek to ratify that he is one of the greatest promises in Spanish football by donning the Blaugrana T-shirt. The mediocentro, who arrived at Camp Nou during this signing market, has proven to be one of the players with greater projection in sport in his stage in Racing de Santander. In his debut as a Barcelona player in front of Olot left good feelingsand despite parting ways as a subsidiary footballer, Hernández has made it abundantly clear that he has what it takes to make the first team.
