11 Best Barcelona Players Xavi Should Use As Starting Eleven XI Including Lewandowski

FC Barcelona had a hell of a transfer window with many recruits. Taking the many signings into account, the Spanish club could upset their XI next season.

Here are 11 best Barcelona players Xavi Hernandez should use as starting eleven XI with Lewandowski next season.

1. GOALKEEPER: Marc-Andre Ter Stegen

Marc-André Ter Stegen will keep his place in the bars as for several years. Almost no competition should come to put him in difficulty since Barça would like to sell Neto, according to the Spanish press.

2. RIGHT BACK: Sergino Dest

Sergino Dest has the full confidence of his coach for the moment. Xavi Hernandez has no more reinforcements on his wing. It’s up to him to demonstrate his full potential this year.

3. CENTRAL DEFENDER: Ronald Araujo

Ronald Araujo convinced FC Barcelona of their progress last year. The Uruguayan international scored important goals, managed to establish himself as a defensive leader as well as in the recovery.

4. CENTRAL DEFENDER: Andreas Christensen

Andreas Christensen fulfilled his childhood dream by signing for FC Barcelona. The Danish international reinforces the central hinge and establishes himself as the future successor to Gerard Pique. A physical and technical player capable of evolving in the middle too.

5. LEFT BACK: Jordi Alba

Jordi Alba still has a few years of service ahead of him. Even if his defensive involvement is no longer best as before, his offensive impact has not changed. He should have a bit more competition with maybe Marcos Alonso as his understudy.

6. SENTINEL MIDDLE: Frenkie de Jong

Frenkie de Jong isn’t too fond of this position. However, FC Barcelona has a definite future for him as a defensive midfielder. The Dutch international is expected to establish himself as Sergio Busquets’ successor. The Catalan star even did everything to stay at the club rather than leave. It’s time for him to rise higher.

7. CENTRAL MIDDLE: Pedri

Pedri has had a rocky season due to injuries. From now on, the Spanish international must impose his paw even more in the midfield. At 19, his place as indisputable holder is assured.

8. CENTRAL MIDDLE: Franck Kessie

Franck Kessié arrives in a particularly competitive midfield. Many profiles can evolve in his role, but certainly not with his volume of play as his dexterity.

9. LEFT WINGER: Ousmane Dembélé

Ousmane Dembélé extended his contract to win over time with FC Barcelona. The French international should take place on the left wing with the arrival of Raphinha, who, as everyone knows, can play with both feet.

His profile had allowed him to become a preferential soldier of Xavi from the top of his dozen assists. It’s up to the former Rennais to repeat the effort.

10. CENTRAL ATTACKER: Robert Lewandowski

FC Barcelona’s big addition is obviously Robert Lewandowski. At the forefront of the attack, Barça had no size since the departure of Luis Suarez. Now, the Catalan team recovers the top scorer in the Bundesliga and one of the very best in Europe. The duel with Karim Benzema in the Clasico promises to be fiery.

11. RIGHT WING: Raphinha

Same observation: Raphinha signed for more than 65 million euros and it is not to polish the bench. The Brazilian international has two more qualities than Ferran Torres: his quality of percussion and that of finishing. This is why he should take a position on the right wing and try to transplant on his left foot.
