Mouctar Diakhaby will start the next Sunday at the Camp Nou. It will be for the first time since the arrival of José Bordalás, a coach who has seen a “progression” in the French central. Diakhaby will perform for the sanction of Omar Alderete, although also because the Alicante coach sees him as “very prepared”. Thus, after playing alone for 90 minutes spread over six games, Diakhaby will have the first revalidation against Barcelona to gain prominence and also to the club accumulates information for the winter market.

Bordalás has in mind request reinforcement of a central in January. You really need it for a mere numerical matter. Hugo Guillamón now only has a midfielder and there is a squad only three centrals: Gabriel Paulista, Omar Alderete and Diakhaby. In the next step, a youth squad like Mosquera is already entering, a central defender with the future and that before the January window opens, he could have his share of prominence in the Copa del Rey. However, the analysis of the January market, as reported by AS, will be carried out in December, when there is another meeting between Peter Lim and Anil Murthy, Miguel Ángel Corona y Bordalás.

A proper name to discuss at the December meeting with Lim

At last week’s meeting it was not treated no signings from January. It was not done precisely because from Valencia they understood that it was not the time to ask the owner anything. Much remains to be analyzed until then. Among other things, the performance that I can give Diakhaby at the command of Bordalás. The Frenchman was one of the players that were for sale last summer, although whenever an offer arrived for an amount that was around minimum 10 million euros.

Own Diakhaby he was market pending, because a change of scenery was in their plans. But no offer came and his future, now, is an unknown, leaving the club’s eyes pending on his performance and the player’s eyes on how he feels with Bordalás.

Diakhaby is ready to compete. He is one of the players in which we have seen a progression. He is always ready for help the team and it has improved not only physically. It could enter but not necessarily due to the possible sanction of a partner but because he is very prepared, although Omar and Gabriel are doing well. But Diakhaby is one very high level“Bordalás said in the previous match against Cádiz, in which he played 30 minutes.
