How Barcelona Could Lineup their Defence Next Season

Barcelona seems to have beaten Chelsea to the signature of Jules Kounde. The Catalan club have been very active this summer and were in a transfer battle with Chelsea for the 23 year old defender.

Xavi is keen on strengthening Barcelona's defence this summer and they identified Jules Kounde as the perfect man for the job. The Blues are unhappy with Barcelona after missing out on Kounde and they might not do business with the Catalan club for years to come.

Barcelona are currently weak in defence but they have improved a lot in attack following the arrival of Robert Lewandowski and Raphinha.

Ansu Fati and Ousmane Dembele have also been impressive in performance so far. Barcelona also strengthened their midfield positions after signing Franck Kessie.

Here is how Barcelona Could Lineup their defence next season

Jordi Alba and Ronaldo Araujo may play as full-backs while Eric Garcia and Jules Kounde may play as centre-backs.

Another option Barcelona could go for is Alba and Dest playing as wing-backs. Eric Garcia, Ronald Araujo and Jules Kounde may form a defensive partnership.

Andreas Christensen is also expected to be in Xavi's plans as he looks to rebuild Barcelona. The manager also told Gerard Pique that he needs to perform well inorder to play for the club.
