Midfielders: Frenkie de Jong, Sergio Busquets, Pedri
De Jong has continued his rise to stardom last season. In his first 12 league appearances he managed a goal or assist in every game. In the Copa del Rey final, he outshone again by setting up two and scoring one himself. He must remain in Barcelona’s midfield if they are going to get back to winning ways.
Busquets will remain as Barcelona’s heart in midfield, despite a disappointing campaign for Spain at Euro 2020 and previous league campaign with Barca, the defensive midfielder will be desperate to make amends next season.
For Pedri, the world awaits what will become of this 18-year-old. Likened to Andres Iniesta, the young Spaniard made 52 appearances for the club last season, and despite a disappointing campaign, he may come into his own this season with an adolescent point to prove, and a hunger for trophies.
