This is what I'd like Barca to do:

Sell Pedro and promote Munir and Sandro to the first team permanently
Sell Halilovic with a buy back option
Sell Adama with a buy back option (I really want to avoid this but I don't know we have much option here)
Sell Sergi Roberto and promote Samper to the first team

Samper is the most talented player on the B team and has potential to be a star. There is no way Barca should let him get away. Among all the young players - he's the most important player for Barca. He's the most talented player to come out from La Masia since Messi, imho.

Luis must give Samper a more attackin' position instead of playing him behind Busquets and Masch. Busquets is only 27-28 and will be in that position for a while. Samper has the ability to play in a more advanced role and he should be molded into that role. I would like to see him start against bad teams in La Liga and come in as a sub for one of the mid-fielders in late 2nd half every once in a while.

At the very least - Luis can find decent time for Samper on the pitch for the rest of 2015. Once Arda joins - then I can understand PT will be limited but until then - I really hope Luis gives Samper a lot of opportunities. Roberto hasn't done enough to keep his place - so I hope he is sold and that'll make room for Samper to join the first team.
