Lionel Messi’s role in the history of Barcelona is so great that it has no parallel. Nevertheless, Leo is already 33 years old, and it is becoming increasingly clear that Blaugrana needs to find someone who will replace Lionel.
Of course, no one has the illusion that Barca will find anyone who will take over La Pulga entirely, but they should still try to find a young leader.
The sports website Thehardtackle.com has offered 3 candidates who will claim La Pulga’s succession in the future.
1. Academy Product – Ansu Fati
Ansu Fati stormed into the Barça main squad at the start of the season and practiced the same way as Leo – both of whom were promoted from the youth team at the age of 16.
Fati looks like a Barca captain with reactive agility and an ability to rack up opponents. But he lacks the vision of a pitch that has been over Messi since the early days.
However, if Ansu justifies the advances given, Blaugrana will get a great player, and it will not need to spend millions.
2. Luxury Purchase – Jaydon Sancho
Borussia Dortmund star is on the radar of almost every European grand. So, it will be difficult for Barca to capture him.
The 20-year-old Englishman has long been in the spotlight. In the current season, Jaydon has played a direct role in 29 goals.
In the group stage of the CL, Sancho also managed to score against Barcelona in a match that their team lost 3: 1.
The star is equally successful on the wings and in the center, as well as being creative and capable of making the right decisions.
Either way, Barcelona must do everything they can to prevent the club from endangering its future.
3. Alternative – Marcus Rashford
Although Marcus’s name appeared on the covers of the European press in the distant 2016, he is still very young and only 22 years old.
Manchester United fans are very much in love with the English legend.
This season, Marcus is a left-winger and has managed 14 goals in the Premier League. But Rashford is no stranger to centerfield either.
Although the Red Devils seemed to be on the rise, staying at Old Trafford could still bring Marcus many unsuccessful years. The transfer to Catalonia will be a guarantee of titles for Rashford.
