By and large the 23 man squad for next year is pretty much settled. But Romero needs to be removed. In a World Cup year instead of sticking with Sampdoria he runs off to Monaco to warm the bench. That alone indicates a lack of desire. He has become complacent and Sabella needs the balls to remove him and put in Willy.
And alongside him Barovero and Orion. Not Andujar.
In defence other candidates that need to be examined are Mateo Musacchio (Villareal) and Nicolas Spolli (Catania). One is young the other is a veteran but both read the game very well. Roncaglia might also merit further looking at if Sabella wishes to play a back three.
Midfield and upfront holds no problems and fingers crossed there are no injuries prior to next summer and the players are all fresh.
My 23 would be:
GK: Caballero, Barovero, Orion
DF: Zabaleta, Ansaldi, Spolli, Garay, Basanta, Peruzzi, Campagnaro, G.Rodriguez/Colocinni
MF: Mascherano, Gago, Banega, di Maria, Lamela, M.Rodriguez, Biglia
FW: Messi, Aguero, Higuain, Lavezzi, Scocco
The u17 have reached the round of sixteen to play Tunisia. Sebastian Druissi, Nicolas Tripichio and Matias Sanchez have caught the eye.
