Munir El Haddadi, FC Barcelona youth squad.

He FC Barcelona 2018/19 kicks off this Wednesday. Only thirteen players are cited in the Joan Gamper Sports City, and some of them with a more than uncertain future that will be resolved throughout the summer.

They will lack, as it is logical, the soccer players who still continue disputing the Russian World Cup 2018 (Umtiti, Dembélé, Vermaelen Y Rakitic) but also those that have already been eliminated. Nor will it be Aleñá, injured, and will not arrive on time Arthur, the last azulgrana signing, who starts the trip from Brazil on Tuesday.

Actually, the coach, Ernesto Valverde, will only have five of the players who, in principle, will make up the first team next season: Cillessen, Semedo, Digne, Sergi Roberto Y Denis Suárez.

Familiar faces

Among the other eight there are players that many fans may have forgotten. It is the case of Munir Y Douglas, who return after their assignments to Deportivo Alavés and Sporting de Portugal, respectively. It also comes back Marlon after his passage through Nice, although perhaps fleetingly because the club has offers for him. The others are Sergi Samper (Las Palmas) and Rafinha, after the Inter breached the purchase agreement reached in the last winter market, when its assignment was agreed.

The three remaining players are Aleix Vidal, André Gomes and Paco Alcácer, whose continuity in the first team is far from guaranteed, especially the first two.

At the moment, Barça has only closed the start of Gerard Deulofeu (Watford) and of Paulinho (Guangzhou ET).
