    Do I need to say how hard it is to fit a player like N'zonzi into a team like Barca? He might be great for Sevilla but not for Barca.
    Paulinho has all the qualities Nzonzi does too. Most likely he would be just as bad or actually worse in Barca since he's not that versatile anyway.

    Absolute nonsense. N'zonzi and Paulino are nothing alike, not even close.
    The former is a physical regista with great passing and ability on the ball, even though he usually keeps it simple, and the latter, well, he's Paulinho. It's like comparing Busi with Paulinho...

    Whatever. If you'd put Paulinho into a team like Sevilla he would look 100x better. I dont like Paulinho but he's a great player to sub in and links up well with other players like we saw at the start of the season

    Nah, not really. Paulinho would probably do better at Sevilla than here, but it would still be clear as day that he is not suited for Barça. N'zonzi on the other hand, I could see fit like a glove in Busi's position. Which coincidentally is the reason why he'll never play at Barça.

    So no, not whatever...

    Nah I dont see it sorry. I'd much rather have Sergi cover for Busi or anyone from La Masia who is ready for the challenge.

    Sorry for people having hopes..
    0% of the people here are saying he will be a goat, were just holding our thumbs considering we really really needs strenthening in our midfield.
    More so when it comes to controll and delivering.
    I don't have a beef against him, I just don't trust those Brazilian flavor of the month transfers, and especially for the price Barca are paying. I would love it if he can become a great player for Barca, but I hate it how some of you overhype him like he's the solution of all our problems. For each great player coming from Brazil, there are 20 shit players, so you see why I have my doubts about him and all other players coming from Brazil

    Unfortunately, Nzonzi should have been transferred instead of Paulinho. I'm baffled that people see Paulinho as an actual option, even coming of the bench. The guy is a total disaster and can't string 2 passes together even if his life would depend on it.
    I'm not saying that Nzonzi would have fit like a glove at Barca, but at least he is a football player. Paulinho is just a big slow, headless chicken who offers nothing to the team.

    IMO we could actually use a Kante/Nzonzi type of player: good on and of the ball. Wanted Nzonzi last year but too late now. We should take a look at Ndombele in Lyon. Same type of player with a huge potentiel.

    Take a look at him here:

    For next season, this current Barca squad needs: No new players. Some of the underused players will leave, like every year. Promoting Alena will backfill one of those spots, so that he can get his chance to rust on the Barca bench. It might be better to have a smaller squad next season, I think even 20 players could be enough. Atletico is going with 19 as of now. Some of the players outside of the first 11 could back up additional positions. For instance, Gomes could backup at RB if Semedo leaves. If Semedo stays, S. Roberto could actually play significant minutes in midfield.

    On the back line, going from Semedo or Mina to someone who could cover multiple positions would be a plus. Or, could Mina or Pique backup as striker? I think Digne might be able to cover the 4th choice CB job. I'd be fine if all three of Paulinho, Gomes and Vidal continue on next year. The front line alternatives to just always Messi and Suarez have now proven themselves: Coutinho on the left, Dembele on the right, always play 4-3-3 when either Messi or Suarez are not on the field. No new forward is needed, maybe just one newbie to squander as deep depth.

    If Iniesta leaves, we need another attacking midfielder.

    I dunno. 6 maybe? It doesn't matter really, because when he left, Suarez picked up form again.

    No, no. I mean he scored 6 goals for us (I read that too fast).

    He was let go for free, so no buying spree for .
