Last summer’s transfer window, Barcelona worked quite actively to bring to the Nou Camp a number of notable rookies such as defenders Hector Bellerin, Marcos Alonso, Andreas Christensen, Jules Kounde, shuttle midfielder Franck Kessie , winger Raphinha or the owner of the FIFA The Best 2021 award, Robert Lewandowski.
However, not all of the above names can integrate and immediately assert themselves in the Blaugrana shirt. Typical examples include former Arsenal defender Hector Bellerin and one-time AC Milan midfielder Franck Kessie.
The duo could not compete for the main kick position at the Nou Camp and often had to sit on the bench under the reign of coach Xavi Hernandez. Therefore, there have been rumors that Barca may soon sell these two names to earn a certain amount of money, especially when they all come to the Catalunya representative on a free transfer.
Speaking about the future of the two summer rookies, President Joan Laporta expressed: “We can confirm that both Franck Kessie and Hector Bellerin will be respected more in phase 2 of the season”.
