Dream Barcelona XI featuring world-class Chelsea superstar N’golo Kante

Barcelona are keen to sign Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante in a player plus cash deal, which could see Andre Gomes moving to Stamford Bridge. The Catalans, after getting Arthur are probably looking for a dynamic midfielder like Kante to partner Sergio Busquets.

Manager Ernesto Valverde’s 4-4-1-1 formation will suit the Frenchman’s playing style, as he will have the calming influence of Busquets alongside him. In addition, this midfield partnership will help the likes of Phillipe Coutinho and Ousmane Dembele to move forward without thinking of the defensive duties all the time.

Let us take a look the line-up which Valverde can field if Kante does move to Camp Nou:

Probable Barcelona XI featuring Kante

Manager: Ernesto Valverde

Marc-Andre Ter Stegen (GK)

The German has done well in the past couple of seasons and has taken over the first-choice role at the club.

Nelson Semedo (RB)

The Portuguese right-back was slow to start his Barcelona career but seems to have come to grips in Spain.

Gerard Pique (CB)

The ever-present Pique will seek to continue the good work he has been doing for the club at the back. He will be partnered by an energetic Samuel Umtiti.

Samuel Umtiti (CB)

The Frenchman has had a fantastic World Cup and after signing a new deal, he will look to relish the opportunity of playing a long-term role for Barcelona.

Jordi Alba (LB)

Alba has been an epitome of consistency in the left-back area for the Catalans. He will continue to take that position and supply width down the left-hand side. The Spaniard will find more space as Coutinho loves to tuck-in from inside the left channel.

N’Golo Kante (CDM)

Kante can be deployed as a defensive midfielder, shielding his defence and covering the ground to support the fullbacks moving forward. His recoveries will awe the whole of Camp Nou.

Sergio Busquets (CM)

With Kante alongside him, Busquets will have a much freer role to play. The Spaniard is a gem with the ball and he can use it more effectively, knowing there is protection behind him.

Phillipe Coutinho (Inside LW)

Coutinho will play in a more central role to make space for Alba outside. The Brazilian is a fabulous technician with the ball and expect him to be deadly from long distance as well.

Ousmane Dembele (RW)

Dembele had a terrible last season due to injuries but is ready to set the stage alight at Camp Nou. He can keep the width down that right-hand side and run past defenders with ease. His pace will allow Lionel Messi to play in the pockets of space, as the defenders will prefer to stay deep.

Ousmane Dembele

Lionel Messi (SS)

The great man doesn’t need any specific position to impact the game, however, he can terrorise defences by staying close to the striker and operating in the pockets of space.

Luis Suarez (ST)

The Uruguayan will work his socks off leading the line, creating subtle angles for midfield runners. He’s a deadly finisher and can kill games off for the Catalans.

  1. N’Golo Kante, the “destroyer”, should belong exclusively to his actually team! Never in his history Barça didn’t have a “destroyer” and will not need one! Ivan Rakitic is already the best defensive midfielder considering his attacking skills and work rate on stopping counter attacks! So forget N’Golo Kante!

  2. why should Rakitic be on the bench for N’Golo Kante to play never will this he is good at Chelsea not barca we need Rakitic than him okk

  3. Comment* you can see we Barca are going down now and we are not the best team like before… I don’t say they should not sign kante but we have to notice what’s wrong with the team..the solution for the team now is not signing of Kante Barça have been signing some player that not suppose to be e.g Gomes,alcacer, digne, some of them like that and we have some players that better than them in the team B.only thing we need now is just two player to add to the team left back and wiger
    I even had that they want to sell yeri Mina. why??

  4. You actually make it seem so easy along with your presentation but I
    in finding this topic to be actually something that I feel I would
    never understand. It sort of feels too complicated and extremely large for me.
    I am taking a look ahead in your next put up, I’ll try to get the hold of it!
