If Suarez can have a last season resurgence where he'll not stroll around with a beer belly, not press and still bitch at every other player and slow down our player with his retarded antics, then sure, he should play, but I don't count on it.
If he returns, I don't see how Valverde could be the man Zidane is by keeping the stars satisfied and under his full control.

Messi,
Suarez
Griezmann
Coutinho
Dembele
Neymar
De jong

sounds fun, but zero balance can be achieved if some of them won't sacrifice their potential or who they are...

Someone need to sacrifice a bit for it to work.

Coutinho I assume will be sold, Suarez should be benched in big games. This is most likely Suarez' last season anyway given his contract runs out in 2021 and they won't let him run it all the way down or give him an extension. If he starts bitching then too bad for him.

Let's assume it's a 4-2-3-1 then. I would not play Busquets as a starter in big games either. Arthur and de Jong are stronger, more mobile and faster and capable of covering big ground. I love Busquets, but his decline is obvious for anyone to see.

Neymar at the LW at Barca was frustrating at times due to him slowing down play, but one thing every Barca fan will always give him credit for is how hard he worked off the ball and defensively by tracking back and winning the ball back. So I won't worry too much about him.

Dembele on the other hand need to get his ass moving if he want to ever become more than just a talented player.

If both wingers can track back and form a 4-4-2 off possession and press more up front like a team it could in theory work well. A bit similar to how Zidane's early RM team looked in some key CL games.

That said, I don't trust Valverde at all, but you would hope, after fucking up big time two times, he wouldn't repeat his mistakes again.

Even if Neymar doesn't come, I would bench Suarez and play a 4-3-3 like this:

Less spectacular but more balanced

Griezmann - Messi - Dembele

Vidal - de Jong - Arthur

Firpo(hopefully) - Umtiti/Lenglet - Pique - NOT ROBERTO

That's a fucking pity. For that price, it's a no-brainer. No doubt he'd be more useful to this team than Müller.

Abdou Diallo signs for Paris SG

Good investment. Can play as centre-back and left-back, i wanted him here before he moved from Mainz to Borussia.
