4 Youngster Eligible to Strengthen Barcelona Main Team
Barcelona has a famous player academy, La Masia. Names like Xavi Hernandez, Andres Iniesta, Gerard Pique and of course Lionel Messi are a handful of stars who are the graduates.
But now the main team of Barcelona is no longer much inhabited academic products, although in fact there are still many La Masia academy graduates who loaned to another club. Here are four young Barcelona players who deserve to be called back to Camp Nou.
Munir El Haddadi
In the era of coaching Luis Enrique, Haddadi was able to collect 26 appearances for Barcelona and scored four goals. El Haddadi became a major successor to Luis Suarez. But shortly afterwards he was loaned to Valencia after Paco Alcacer replaced him.
Haddadi was able to develop during Valencia’s play, but Barcelona decided to keep the talented young player from the Nou Camp for another year and then loaned him to Alaves.
With Suarez’s worrying performance and Alcacer’s unsatisfactory performance, Munir could be a substitute for an effective attack for the Blaugrana, who are trying to restore their glory.
This talented winger into the Barcelona B team in 2014. There Camara had collected 61 appearances and scored 12 goals. Good performance also make it a future prospect of the club.
However he was loaned to Girona for a year followed by another loan term to Reus Deportiu, where he currently plays. After Neymar’s departure and rumors of the departure of Denis Suarez and Gerard Deulofeu, Camara could be an effective rotating player in Barcelona’s first team.
Santos made his debut in Barcelona’s first team in a Champions League match. It proves his ability as a talented young player.
In the midst of Barcelona’s bid to bring in OGC Nice midfielder, Seri, in this year, they finally loan Marlon Santos to the French club. As a talented young player, Santos has excellent ball-controlling ability as a defender, and that could be useful for Barcelona.
With Valverde’s lack of dependence on Vermaelen, Marlon has been predicted to lead Barcelona’s defense in the near future. Valverde also ensures that he knows everything about Marlon as this player plays an important role in Barcelona’s pre-season.
Seen as a natural substitute for Sergio Busquets in a defensive midfield position, Samper’s career at the Blaugrana has been plagued by poor administrative board decisions.
Samper has an impressive pre-season in the US with the first team. After graduating from La Masia, the club’s decision to keep Samper away from Camp Nou for two consecutive seasons was not well received by the fans, who carefully monitored Samper’s progress to replace Busquets in the future.
The defensive midfielder who now plays for Las Palmas is also voiced by stating how unhappy he is with the council’s decision regarding his future, although his dream is to strengthen Barcelona’s main team on a regular basis. (Source: Sportskeeda)
