In case we need a quality centre-back, there is one at La Masia.

Barcelona fan Domagoj Kostanjšak names his candidate.

"I would take Mika Marmol over Umtiti and even Lenglet in a heartbeat.

Young, fast, good duelist & a very good progressive left-footer. He has all the tools to make the transition into the first team. And the best thing yet? Extremely reliable, fit & consistent. Do it, Xavi."

Marmol was among the players with the most minutes played for Barcelona B last season.

The 20-year-old is a left-footed centre-back who has also played at left-back on multiple occasions.

It's worth a mention that he's just 1.84m tall. Each of his two goals scored for Barca B was a left-footed shot.

This season, Marmol is a regular starter for Barca B as well. We're yet to see if Xavi needs his services this term.
