Intermediate centers are key in Parma
With an excellent start to the season for Parma (leading with 41 points out of 19 teams) in Series B, Adrian Bernabé has influenced one of his numbers. The former FC Barcelona canterano has scored five goals and provided four assists in Italy’s second division, leading midfielders like Fabio Pecchia.some political parties alternate between mediocentro and pivot positions, with a double “5” next to Brazilian Hernani Azevedo.
After two years in Italy, the Catalan has found the best version of himself. Bernabe left Masia after three seasons in 2018 with a letter of freedom from Manchester City. He was not able to make his debut in the first team. Although he had a brilliant performance at Barça as a Cadet, he failed to establish himself at Juvenile B and the club let him leave. At 22 years old, it seems wise to give Adrian the jump to Europe’s elite in 2024.
Bernabé, Barça’s options regarding pivot?
Under the agreement until June 2026, Mediocentro could leave Parma in the next market for close to 10 million euros, considering that his current value at Transfermarkt is rounded off to the nearest 5.5 “kg”.

Nevertheless, this instruction will be carried out by a more experienced and “low-cost” player, and after the poor results obtained with the return of Oriol Romeu, the club will consider the return to other canteranos. It’s almost impossible to see it in a good light. At this point, In this case, the only reliable replacement would be Thiago AlcantaraHowever, Liverpool’s still player’s physical problems have left many doubts about his reliability.
