After the official announcement of FC Barcelona, where the Argentine’s stage in the club was ended by not being able to register him in LaLiga for the Financial Fair Play, the destination with which he has been most associated is the Parque de los Príncipes. We see some tactical systems in which it could fit for Mauricio Pochettino:
A midfield formed by Leandro Paredes, Marco Verratti and Georginio Wijnaldum could bring together very complementary profiles at the defensive, organizational and arriving level, respectively. In addition, having a trident composed of Neymar Da Silva, Kylian Mbappé and Lionel Messi in attack would be a luxury.
The capabilities of all three attackers, with the Dutchman’s surprise option as a specialist coming from the second row, could be a tricky argument for opposing defenses.
It is the system most used by Mauricio Pochettino since he began his stage as a technician at the Parque de los Príncipes. In this case, the victim would be Georginio Wijnaldum, since he would need a more positional and, in turn, complementary core, such as the one that Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti could form, including Danilo Pereira for the Argentine.
The intention would be to form a line of three with the magic trident mentioned above, with the difference that a reference such as Mauro Icardi would appear in this proposal.
In this case we would seek to cover a defense that has troops to have a powerful line of three with Marcos Aoás “Marquinhos”, Presnel Kimpembe and Sergio Ramos, in addition to giving greater flight through the lanes, with an Achraf Hakimi specialist in it and a Ángel Di María who could act on the other side with less defensive weight and leaving the adventures to the Andalusian for that profile.
Regarding the distribution of the rest, it would be essential to have a pivot with a lot of defensive capacity like Danilo Pereira, seeking to open the game with the two mentioned above so that Neymar Da Silva and Lionel Messi could look for interior holes with Kylian Mbappé and Mauro Icardi ahead. .
The previous option is very ambitious on the offensive plot, so we propose another a little more realistic. In this case we once again have a double pivot, with Leandro Paredes and Marco Verratti and the same tenants on either side: Achraf Hakimi and Ánge Di María. We would continue to have the lethal trident above, without a clear reference when eliminating Mauro Icardi, but with a great capacity to generate uncertainty.
With this alignment, easily mutable to 4-2-4 with Achraf Hakimi and Kylian Mbappé on the sides in attack, covered by the sides on the side, depth could be gained in the lime line and stimulated the appearance of spaces in the center, leaving Neymar Da Silva and Lionel Messi to associate without being references either of the two. From behind, the double pivot proposed above seems to us a great option.
Paris Saint Germain have a great squad for the coming year, which started in a negative way after losing (1-0) to Lille OSC in the Trophée des Champions. In the absence of seeing how the information regarding Lionel Messi flourishes, we will see them starting their journey in Ligue 1 against Troyes this Saturday.
