Quique Setien will have to polish these players’ in a way that would prepare them for challenging situations. Let’s take a look at 5 such young players’ who could play a crucial role for Barcelona FC.

1  Frenkie De Jong

The former Ajax FC player is known for his all-round play. The 22-year-old can outrun the opposition with his speed and electric counter attacks. Frenkie De Jong is normally a midfielder but the enterprising star can play offensively as well as defensively. De Jong can change his game as per the situation of a game which is one of his biggest strengths.

The midfielder has showcased his intelligence at the flanks and is a destructive operator inside the box. Although De Jong scored only 2 goals in 26 La Liga games in the 2019-20 season his creativity and clever one-touch passes are effective during the run of play. Aerially De Jong is a deadly operator because of his destructive headers.

De Jong is a keen learner and playing with the likes of Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez will make him technically sharp. De Jong’s reach and fine shooting abilities make him a threat during aerial duels and set-pieces. De Jong’s presence has surely added more fluidity in Barcelona’s midfield. It will be a unique experience for the youngster which will make him a complete player in the future.
