“Barcelona going after [Johan] Mojica or even [Marcos] Alonso as a back-up left-back makes no sense when Balde offers what they have.
Besides, he is both a younger player and is more adjusted to Barca’s style of play,” Barcelona fan Nathaniel tweets.
“He still has to work out a few kinks but I’m certain he’s perfect as a substitute,” he adds.
Many were left impressed with Alejandro Balde’s outing against New York Red Bulls.
The 18-year-old pleased the fans with his runs that made him particularly dangerous on the left wing.
Balde isn’t perfect defensively but he could be really helpful for Xavi’s 3-4-3 formation that would allow him to freely cover the whole left side.
❓ Should Barca give up on their transfer targets and stick to Balde as Jordi Alba’s substitute?
