The midfielder has arrived at a time when there are plenty of rivals for a place in the XI
Pablo Torre has to go step by step at Barcelona. He’s shown he has talent, but all will come with time. He will play more for the B team than the first team this season, although Xavi Hernandez will give him some minutes at the top level.
Torre has arrived at a moment where the middle of the pitch is well covered, with Pedri, the 2021 Golden Boy winner, a key figure. Then there is Gavi, Kessie, potentially Frenkie de Jong, potentially Sergi Roberto, all keen for minutes.
Pablo Torre needs to gain muscle mass and maturity, as is logical, although he’s demonstrated he has his head on his shoulders and is a sponge for absorbing advice from Xavi and his staff. In the first friendly against Olot he left some mouths open and took his chance well on tour in the States.
The objective is that he keeps playing regularly with Rafa Marquez’s Barça Atletic, where it’s expected he can regularly make the difference, instead of stagnating without game time in the first team squad.
