The situation of the Brexit is having consequences for the big majority of the fields of the life of the United Kingdom. Recently I can know that, given the measure, the lower players of 18 years will not be able to arrive to the clubs that integrate the Premier League and the other categories of the balompié English, given the new rules that are boosting to govern to the football in the same.

Of this way, remains forbidden one of the most used tactics by the teams of the British islands, especially some quite known like the Arsenal, the Manchester City, the Manchester United or Chelsea. These groups were used to "to steal" to the young talents of the quarries of the clubs of other countries, to nourish his inferior categories.

Like this it was the origin of the histories of big footballers, as Cesc Fábregas, the one who was fichado with less than 18 years by the Arsenal, when it still was in the quarry of the FC Barcelona. Of equal way sucedió with Gerard Piqué, the one who left to the Manchester United with 17 years, from the breast of The Farm.

Out of the surroundings of the Barcelona also has been able to observe this situation in repeated opportunities. Clear examples are the ones of the signing of Paul Pogba from Him Havre to the Manchester United, when the French midfield player had hardly 16 years; or the one of the known of LaLiga Adnan Januzj, the one who arrived to the "Red Devils" with the same age, from the Anderletch of his natal Belgium.

Other remarkable cases

Héctor Bellerín, Ignasi Miquel, Fran Mérida, Francis Coquelin and Serge Gnabry arrived in his full adolescence to the rows of the inferior categories of the Arsenal, situation that will not be able to repeat thanks to the Brexit. Of equal way, Nathan Ake, Andreas Christensen and Timothy Fosu-Mensah signed by Chelsea and the Manchester United respectively, being very young.

With this new rule also will avoid the arrival of the current lower players of age that already dazzle to the world of the football. Names like the ones of Luka Romero (Mallorca), Ryan Cherki (Lyon) or Youssoufa Moukoko (Borussia Dortmund) will be far of England, at least for now.
