    Strictly speaking Barca B and Juvenil A right now. Anything below is too early to judge. And Alena is with the 1st team so I'm not counting him as he's made the step up and I believe will be valuable to the team even if it is as a super sub.

    The one who is also currently overrated by fans is in fact, Puig not Oriol.
    He's a promising talent, but I fear he suffers from the same limitations as Sergio, without the elite talent, and with football evolving and teams wanting players that are more aggressive, agile with mobility as their defensive midfielders........game might be running past Oriol Busquets. But if he's indeed special, he'll make the team regardless of who we sign.

    Oriol Busquets has the most strategic name of all the La Masia players. The last best two defensive midfielders rolled into one. Oriol Romeu and Sergio Busquets.

    Level wise, he is probably in the middle of both and can potentially be a squad option with our lack of depth at DMC.

    I see Oriol being a good backup for Frenkie when Busi is no longer able to start, or at least, I see that being his ceiling. I find it hard to imagine Busquets willingly sitting on the bench long term as he ages and is forced to watch a new wonderkid play his role, just the same as Pedro before him.

    Busquets said a couple of months ago he has two more years at this level so I won't be surprised if he leaves to join Iniesta in Japan or something in 2020/2021.

    Busquets is one of Barcelona's biggest legends, he'll be treated more than fair. As usual.

    Yeah. Also unlike other teams our legends seem to realize when it's time to leave. Xavi and Iniesta left at the right time unlike Ribery and Robben over in Munich or Rooney and others in England.

    If Xavi and Iniesta were still here our starting midfield under Valverde would legitimately still be Xavi, Iniesta, and Busquets.

    Also, when did I lose that bet for this profile picture? I had to keep it for so long I actually grew to like it...

    Alena is a first team player now not a part of the B team anymore

    He will succeed just like Morey as long as they stay injury-free.
    Hope Puig also makes a smart decision.

    I don't think he'll surpass the level of, say, Oriol Romeu.

    Selling him with buy-back option to a good BL team would be good for him and Barça.

    Mallorca apparently also wants Oriol (and Miranda) on loan.
