Xavi to try Nico in midfield

The Catalan reassured the player about his role in the upcoming season

Joan Laporta and Jorge Mendes maintain a close relationship, and in their regular meetings the name of Nico Gonzalez has popped up on several occasions. Xavi does not want to hear about the midfielder's departure, despite the fact that he did not hand him too much game time last season. He understands that the player has plenty of potential to one day be important in the team - in fact, he is convinced that he has the potential to become Sergio Busquets' replacement in midfield.

According to 'Esports3', the midfielder had a meeting with the coach to know his plans for the future. Nico was willing to go on loan to Olympique Marseille and play alongside his friend, Konrad de la Fuente. However, the coach made him see that, as was the case with himself and Andres Iniesta, the road to success in the first team is not always as fast as any player would like.

With that in mind, Xavi has conveyed to the 20 year old that he wants him to follow the footsteps of Sergio Buquets, that he is willing to try him in that position and give him the game time to prove that he is not wrong. Xavi also added that he has maximum confidence in him and that he will be given the necessary time and opportunity to earn a place in the team.
