FC Barcelona, ​​despite its financial difficulties, has not hesitated to successfully renew several of its young talents from the quarry, who have a promising future ahead of them. In this task, Deco, sports director, has played a strategic and leading role

Calendar of FC Barcelona

Anderson Luis of Souza, Deco, assumed the charge of sportive director of the FC Barcelona around the middle of 2023 with full knowledge of the challenges that expected him: a true consistent proof in carrying out incorporations and renewals in the middle of the already known economic situation of the club culé. Although the financial section has begun to show clear signals of improvement, keeps on being all a challenge for the sportive direction attain any type of transaction in this moment.

Nevertheless, against all prognosis, this problematic of the institution has not been an obstacle so that, under the management of the exfutbolista Portuguese, have attained big strategic renewals of young pertinent talents of The Masia. These 'jewels' have called the attention of several foreign clubs that have explored several roads to carry them, but without a lot of success.

Lamine Yamal and Alejandro Balde

Since Deco assumed the sportive direction of the FC Barcelona, the combined of the City Condal has oficializado a total of five renewals. Between them, they stand out the ones of Lamine Yamal, the one who renewed until 2026, and Alejandro Balde, the one who extended his agreement until 2028, both with clauses of rescission 'astronomical' of 1000 M€.

Both players apparently received upper economic offers much more yielding that the posed by Barcelona cast, but the intervention of the luso was fundamental to leave them clear his importance so much in the current sportive project as in the future. It has transmitted them the confidence in them like fundamental pieces and has ensured them opportunities to see action of regular way.

Fermín López

Another of the negotiations that was to charge of Deco was the renewal of Fermín López. It is necessary to remember that to the beginning of the season 2023/24, the agreement of the player expired on 30 June. The club, valuing his remarkable performance to the start of the campaign, decided to renew it in August, extending his agreement until 2027, improving his wage and establishing a clause of rescission of 400 M€.

However, this renewal made with an index card of the filial, by what onubense carried the '32' in his back. Nevertheless, this situation lasted little, since in December, although López still there was not 'exploded', but already showed destellos of his talent, the Barcelonan picture decided to award him an index card of the first team like clear sample of his intentions with him. Fermín finished answering to this confidence of flawless way, invoiceing 11 annotations, finishing the course 23/24 like one of the best goleadores of the group culé.

Pau Cubarsí

Added to the renewal of the native of The Campillo, also stands out the contractual prolongation of the project of defender 'top' Pau Cubarsí the past month of May. His new agreement links it with the institution until 2027 and has a clause of rescission of 500 M€.

It is necessary to mention that the one of Estanyol already had agreement until 2026, but required an update of his wage and, the most important, of his clause liberatoria, since this found around the 10 'kilos', an insufficient figure for a talent like him. The '33' has showed to be a 'escudero' exceptional, with very good provision to defensive level and a big capacity to initiate played from the background line, already was with his good transfer of balloon or by means of the pass, one of the tools that more calls the attention in his repertoire.

Héctor Fort

In the past month of May, the Barcelonan cast also renewed to one of his big promises in the right and left side, Héctor Fort. The canterano had agreement until 2025 and had a clause of rescission quite low, around the six million euros, what turned it into an affordable aim for other clubs. The FC Barcelona acted quickly and extended his bond until 2026.

The renewals of Marc Casadó and Guiu, pending tasks for Deco

Likewise, it has spoken a lot on the possible renewal of Marc Bernal until 2026, with the option of two or three years more, which could do official very soon. Deco Also is working in the renewals of Marc Casadó, whose agreement finalises this summer, and Marc Guiu, whose bond wins in 2025. These two pieces are considered promises as 'jewels' of the quarry culé and seem to be the next in renewing and have his opportunity in the first team.
