In spite of the hard that it can be the economic crisis of the Barcelona, the same can offer opportunities to the footballers of The Masia to arrive to the first team that in normal occasions very probably had not arrived to have.

Already it occurred the season, in which Koeman, in front of a big number of drops in the first team, saw forced to resort to the filial, and with excellent results. It had burst into Òscar Mingueza as it did it? Pedri Had had all these minutes from a principle? We would have seen to Ilaix to title in spite of having 18 years?

Being honest there is not form to know it for sure, but any one knows that the answer is that no. In the last times, before the crisis and the pandemia, the tendency had been to look to out and take out the chequebook in place to bet by the youngsters in the Masia. But when the penurias tighten does not remain more alternative that bet by the youngsters.

In full process of reduction of mass salarial, the Barcelona has decided, as it informed yesterday SPORT, not looking for replacement to Junior Firpo.

It started his career in the school of Sant Gabriel, with six years, but around the middle of year already went up him to the Prebenjamín. This campaign played of forward and marked goals. The Barça and the RCD Espanyol followed it closely.

His way in The Masia

In that then, Balde wished to play with the Barcelona, but in the club demoraron a lot his answer and preferred to accept the one of the group blanquiazul. There, also fungiendo like forward, went back to stand out and already dissipated all the doubts. It had to be Barcelona and this was what occurred.
