Blessed problem but it is still a brown. The tremendous irruption of Gavi in Barcelona brings with it a new headache for Ronald Koeman, as if they were not few. The Dutch coach will have one more piece in his midfield puzzle and will have to find a place for one of the best and safest positions he had, such as midfield. Sergio Busquets, Pedri gonzalez and Frenkie De Jong they form a safe and reliable trident at the core that could now be altered by the trendy guy.
The 17-year-old has landed in a spectacular way in elite football, more dazzling if possible than what he achieved Pedri González last year. In just a month and a half with the first team of the Barça, the canterano culé was cited by the absolute of Luis Enrique and in two highly demanding games against Italy and France, the Los Palacios has left shades of the great footballer he is destined to be.
The young man happened this week not to appear among the appraisals of Transfermarkt, off the map in its previous update, to surprise with a first value of 25 million euros, a privileged position in the domestic championship, the same market value as one of the great stars of LaLiga like Karim Benzema and superior to other teammates like Eric Garcia (20), Riqui Puig, Mingueza (15) the iron (12). In fact, in the club they work at full speed to improve the contract of the youth squad before any great interested appears that endangers the future of the young man as a Blaugrana.
I told you. We are not talking about an unusual case. For him he is playing like at school or in the backyard of his house. It is a pleasure to see a player with his quality. It is the future of the national team along with many others “, said Luis Enrique after the match against Italy in which he started. Gavi and where he agreed with the coach with his citation. The Sevillian shows self-confidence, ambition, ease, tranquility and a football that fits perfectly with Culé’s DNA, forcing Koeman to find a place in his well-defined midfield.
Luckily right now, the relapse of Pedri your left thigh quadriceps muscle injury earlier in the month will make your decision easy to Koeman in this return to the competition after the national team break. The canary is still in the infirmary and his return to the group is expected by the end of October. Meanwhile, a vacancy opens up in the midfield next to Sergio Busquets and From Jong, the other two very titled.
The crux of the matter will be when everyone is healthy in midfield. Koeman You will have to come up with a formula to accommodate all the good guys. The recovery of When Omen, Ousmane Dembele and Ansu The fate expands the range of possibilities up front (and reduces your possible excuses), so the 4-3-3 it will remain as the main scheme in their plans, under the express order of the directive.
With the explosion of Gavi and its accurate impact on the national team is not understood that the young man, despite his 17 years, is not in the starting eleven of the Barça henceforth. Pedri and From Jong are fixed as interiors and at the ends now appear Memphis and Ansu The fate as preferred options, with Dembele as an alternative. It is true that to date, the Sevillian has adapted perfectly to everything the Dutch coach has asked him to do. He has played in both interior profiles and has also held extreme positions in according to which lineups, with 3-4-1-2 and even briefly 4-4-2 on the scene.
The Gavi that will return to the hands of Koeman he will be a much more established and mature boy in this intensive course that he lived with Spain. Luis Enrique showed that the Sevillian has more football and more resources than what was seen at this start of the season with the Barça. It remains to be seen how the Dutchman exploits him from now on, especially when Pedri be back and have to solve your blessed brown.
