    Marc Casado






    It's time this kid gets a thread. He was on US Tour in summer, started season well playing for both Barca Atletic and also Juvenil A in UYCL and now Xavi has choosen him as emergency RB so he's training with the team and is on the verge of making his first team debut, maybe tomorrow in Mallorca.

    I think he has skill set to do what Xavi wants from his RBs so will be interesting to see how he'll do if given a chance. Wouldn't mind if we could turn him into next Roberto. I like the kid and versatility would clearly improve his chances to stay here.

    I really like this player, and out of the dmc that have came through before (Jandro, Alvaro Sanz, Monchu) I think he is better. So he might reach LaLiga level.

    Lacks height and physically, though as I have stated before, he is deceptively fast with good acceleration. So I can see why Xavi gave him pre-season minutes as one of his possession fullbacks.

    Would love for him to emerge over the next season or two at defensive midfield though, because lets face it, Zubimendi is not that great. Certainly not 60m+ great.

    Nothing wrong with looking at bad examples to know what NOT to do.

    Good question tbh.
    Think the only thing Casado has over Monchu is the opportunity, since Barca is desperate for DM

    Technically for sure. But Monchu had that mentality like Gavi, and that helped him take him to a further level than just his talents, even if that is just a lower half LaLiga side.
