What would Barca’s squad look like if they didn’t register for rookies in time?

Until now, the Camp Nou team has not been able to register to play for the contracts they just brought in last summer.

Against a lower-ranked opponent like Rayo Vallecano, Barca must win a positive result to be able to put pressure on Real Madrid in the early part of the season. In other words, Barca needs a beneficial result to ‘get in front’ in the crucial season ahead.

However, the difficulties on the negotiating table persuading the players to reduce their wages, especially Martin Braithwaite and Frenkie de Jong, led to Barca being at risk of entering the first round of the season without a contract. faces of rookies, including Ousmane Dembele or Sergi Roberto.


So if they really don’t complete the procedures in time, how will coach Xavi have to step out on the field with the force situation?

Goalkeeper: Marc-Andre ter Stegen

Still, nothing will change in the position of holding the goal. The German goalkeeper is still the number 1 choice that coach Xavi Hernandez has.

Bộ tứ vệ: Sergino Dest – Ronald Araujo – Eric Garcia – Jordi Alba


Ronald Araujo will still play the defensive leader

With the absence of Sergi Roberto and Dani Alves already leaving, Sergino Dest is the only option on the right wing that Barca have at the moment. The duo blocking the front of the goal is still a familiar pair of partners last season, Ronald Araujo and the Spanish midfielder, Eric Garcia. Jordi Alba will be trusted by Xavi for a starting position on the left wing. 

Midfielders: Sergio Busquets – Pablo Gavi – Pedri

The high possibility of Busquets’ experience will help him have an official appearance in the next match next to two young talents Gavi and Pedri. Barca’s La Masia trio’s ability to control the rhythm and manage the midfield area will help Barca optimize the ability to manage the midfield.

Frenkie de Jong is a name on the bench that can play the role of a tactical ‘card’ that Xavi can throw on the field at any time. Besides, a Miralem Pjanic who played very well in the pre-season may be the surprise plan of the Spanish teacher.


Forwards: Ansu Fati – Aubameyang – Memphis Depay

The absence of both Robert Lewandowski, Ousmane Dembele or Raphinha greatly affects the attacking power of Barca. But they still have the future of the attack Ansu Fati and another player who is also flourishing in the pre-season is Memphis Depay. This is an opportunity for the Dutch striker to express himself.

Playing highest in attack will be Gabon striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. There have been many sources that Chelsea are looking for his signature and Barca also do not rule out the possibility that Aubameyang will return to NHA. But coach Xavi has been adamant that the 33-year-old striker is still an important card for him and the importance of Aubameyang will have the opportunity to be demonstrated in the upcoming match.


It can be seen that, despite not having the strongest squad, the uniform depth helps Barca fans not to be too worried about the current situation. The quality of Barca’s squad is still better than Rayo Vallecano’s players and 3 points is completely possible if there are no surprises.
