The Spanish national team qualified for the next edition of the European Cup as first in their group, but the price they had to pay was high, especially for the Barça club, which did not suffer this terrible injury.
Xavi Hernández was satisfied with the classification Spain at Euro 2024but not much about the injury to one of FC Barcelona’s most promising players. The worst part is that he will miss the rest of the season due to the physical setback. A situation that leaves that Mr Egarense as it was one of the most important figures in the attack.
The FC Barcelona medical department reports that player Pablo Martín Páez Gavira, better known as Gavi, has a torn cruciate ligament. His sick leave will last from today, November 20th, until the end of July 2024. It can be shorter or longer depending on its development. So Xavi will have to manage to compensate for such a loss.
The FC Barcelona quarry as a solution for Xavi
Without thinking twice, the Catalan coach went to the Barça Atlétic camp to find his new Gavi. ORA task that does not seem easy, especially considering that a footballer worth 90 million euros has to be replaced. However, there is talent left in the B squad that Rafa Márquez can easily guarantee.
Currently, Marc Casadó is the one who has the most chances of breaking into the first team and temporarily filling the position of Sevillian midfielder. The pivot Vilamajorence is not only the captain of Barcelona B, but also one of the most technically adept and intelligent players when he has the ball at his feet. His strength is not his speed, but his vision to place very dangerous balls that almost always end in a goal.
Casadó is looking forward to his league debut at FC Barcelona
Generally, youth players make their debut with the first team in the Copa del Rey or LaLiga. In this case, the 20-year-old midfielder managed a 2-4 win against Viktoria Plzen in the Champions League on November 1st last year. But if we talk about the present, he also added minutes against Shakhtar Donetsk on October 25.
Strangely, he hasn’t played his first minute in LaLiga yet, but given the circumstances FC Barcelona are in, Marc Casadó could make his league debut very soon. The most likely scenario is that Xavi will call him up for the game against Rayo Vallecano this Saturday. However, the trainer considers other options to find the best solution.
