Forget Cesc Fabregas - Barcelona Should Groom Thiago Alcantara To Become Xavi’s Successor

It’s a story that’s bound to rumble on for a few summers more: Barcelona haranguing Arsenal for the services of their captain Cesc Fabregas.

Barca wasted much of last summer chasing after Cesc and got nowhere in the end as the playmaker decided to stay a Gunner, and has since gone on to pledge his future to the club. That won’t stop the Blaugrana from trying again next summer, despite the club's growing debts and escalating financial mess.

But the Catalan giants do already have a ready-made solution in the form of young Thiago Alcantara. Barca’s lack of experienced back-up players in the squad will provide their emerging youngsters will ample opportunities as the season goes on.

The story is too old to be commented.
