Barcelona are renowned for bringing exciting young starlets through the club’s famed La Masia youth academy and look to have yet another very special talent on their hands
Lamine Yamal, who has already been called up by Xavi for first team training this season, scored a double on his debut for Barcelona’s Under-19 side on Saturday, September 10.
The youngster has opened his account at the age of 15 years, one month and 28 days, beating the previous record held by another special Barcelona talent, Ansu Fati.
Fati went straight from the Under-19 team to the first team at Barcelona, never playing for the reserve side, but only scored his first goal for Juvenil A at the age of 15 years, 10 months and eight days.
Yamal actually ended the game with two goals. The teenager scored Barca’s third in a 5-0 win over CD Ebro and his performance will undoubtedly add to the excitement surrounding the player at Barcelona.
The teenager is already considered one of the most exciting prospects at La Masia, while it has been reported that Xavi is already “in love” with the teenager’s quality and potential.
