But to be able to excel in the CM/AM role is exactly why it will be so great to have him. Since Busquets won't be regularly dropped for at least 2 more years, especially not under a pragmatic manager like EV, this way there's a way for Frenkie to walk into our starting lineup anyway. And with Busquets in that lineup, Frenkie would have the freedom to roam forward with the ball at his feet, which he LOVES to do, and something which Iniesta did regularly too. While in the games, where Busquets rests (which should be more and more often as time goes by) De Jong can still play those games at DM and adjust to playing that position as well to be ready to take over from Busquets eventually, if we choose that position long term for him and not the CM/AM one.
What a luxury we have to be able to discuss how should we find space for both Arthur and De Jong together with Busi. If we also sign Rabiot and with Alena here we'll easily have the best midfield in the world.
