Konrad has named in Barcelona’s first team
Quique Setien faces selection trouble ahead of Barcelona’s Champions League clash with Napoli at the Camp Nou. Pushing him to make a historic lineup in the form of Konrad de la Fuente. The 19-year-old Miami-born winger became the first American to be named in a Barcelona first team. It comes after six appearances for Barcelona B this season and scoring three goals, including a 3-2 brace over Real Valladolid B. Konrad was in the Under-20 of the US team. That reached the quarterfinals of the FIFA World Cup in the summer of 2019. He participated in five matches played in that tournament.
In June, Barcelona announced that Konrad had renewed their contract with the club, with a new contract containing a buyout clause of €50 million and running until June 2022. If Konrad promotes to senior staff permanently, this buyback clause will rise to €100 million. Setien has to face the possibility that he will not be able to fill his bench for Gennaro Gattuso’s visit. The injuries of Samuel Umtiti and Ousmane Dembele add to the problems caused by the respective suspension of Arturo Vidal and Sergio Busquets.
