More La Masia Recruits for Barca

With Chygynskiy's and Toure's departure, Guardiola is looking to La Masia for defensive cover for next season. Atleast four Barca Atletic defenders may find more playing time with the first team next season. Barca is expected to release Marquez and Caceres and also is expected to send Henrique out on loan yet again. Caceres performance against Holland in the World Cup semi-final may force the management to think about a loan deal rather than selling the player. He still may fulfil all the promises he shown at a very early age. Marc Muniesa, Andreu Fontas, Marc Batra and Sergi Gomez all are expected to make the cut for the first team this season. Muniesa is widely regarded as the natural heir to Puyol's throne and he should see more playing time than others. Add to this, Jonathan Dos Santos and Thiago, we have two brilliant midfielders also emerging from the academy.

The current management has wisely decided to focus on La Masia to find reinforcements for the team. Many Barca fans has been shouting this for a pretty long time. In this back drop, is it wise for the Management to pursue Cesc Fabregas signing anymore? He is a quality player but he will not come any cheap. If we manage to secure his signing, we will have to part with atleast 40-45 million Euros. We already have Xavi and Iniesta in the midfield and Fabregas will find it difficult to break into midfield unless Iniesta is given a more attacking role, which I firmly oppose. last season, in the whole drama of getting rid of Eto'o, Guardiola and the management failed to find a quality reinforcement for the fading Henry. This season we are in the danger of doing it again in the whole mess of Cesc Fabregas pursuit. We need two definitive reinforcement at present. First the left side of the attack and next the defensive midfielder position. It looks like the management is banking on Fabregas signing to solve both the problem, which for me could be a huge blunder - both tactically and Financially.
