There is a new treasure emerging from the Barcelona academy, and it is not Lamine Yamal.
According to SPORT, a certain Guille Fernandez, at 15, is already juggling between the Juvenil A and Juvenil B teams, demonstrating his potential.
According to the site, Fernandez, who is 15 years, two months, and 21 days old, is the second youngest player to make his Youth League debut.
Interestingly, Lamine, at 15 years, one month, and sixteen days, is the team’s youngest debutant in the competition.
A Barça historian
The outlet is convinced that this young talent is destined for a bright future. In the previous season, he had the opportunity to showcase his skills with Juvenil A, and in the ongoing season, he efficiently manages his responsibilities across both youth teams.
After making appearances in two league matches with Juvenil A and one with Juvenil B, Oscar Lopez made the significant decision to grant him his inaugural appearance in the Youth League.
During this momentous event, Fernandez filled in for Noah Darvich, thus becoming the second youngest player in the history of the Youth Champions League to proudly wear the Barça jersey.
In this regard, the exceptional distinction of the youngest debutant in the Youth League remains with Norwegian midfielder Sverre Nypan. This current member of the Rosenborg first-team achieved this remarkable feat by making his Youth League debut at the incredibly tender age of just 14 years, 9 months, and 11 days.
Destiny has a lot to offer
Jaume Marcet, writing for the aforementioned outlet, asserts that Fernandez possesses all the requisite qualities to ascend to the ranks of an elite midfielder.
What’s more, it’s not a random occurrence that, much like Lamine and Alejandro Balde, his representative happens to be none other than Jorge Mendes.
This young talent is renowned for his exceptional ball control, but what truly sets him apart is his extraordinary aptitude for creating goal-scoring opportunities. His robust physicality empowers him to confidently navigate dribbles and push forward without the constant concern of losing possession.
For years, devoted fans of the youth squad have been closely following the 15-year-old sensation’s journey, a journey that has been well-documented on Barça TV.
Now entering his sixth season within the Blaugrana youth academy, Fernandez’s reputation transcends mere talent and physical prowess, sparking speculation that he might just be the academy’s next big sensation.
