Barcelona Target Highly Rated Paris Saint Germain Starlet: Good Fit For Valverde’s Plans?

Barcelona are looking to invest further into the youth system by bringing in Paris Saint Germain’s highly rated teenager Yacine Adli. The 17-year-old plays in a midfield position and is yet to sign a contract with the Ligue 1 giants. It is believed that the player is being courted by several big clubs like Bayern Munich and Manchester City and Pep Guardiola is going to rivalled by domestic opponents Arsenal as well. The midfielder is technically gifted and has created a lot of noise down in France while playing for the youth system if Paris Saint Germain.

Barcelona are enjoying a fantastic season under new boss Ernesto Valverde. The Catalan giants have been traditionally a big club throughout their history but are enjoying their golden generation of football with their crown jewel Lionel Messi lighting up the world stage of football for well over a decade now.

Pep Guardiola’s introduction as Barcelona manager 10 years ago set into motion a system at Nou Camp that is still benefitting the club. The former Barcelona player ingrained into the club a style of play that started from the bottom channel and helped convert their youth academy into a storage unit for future players.

The likes of Xavi, Iniesta, Gerard Pique, Cesc Fabregas, Pedro, Thiago Alcantra, Sergio Busquets, Bojan, Sergi Roberto, Rafinha and golden boy Leo Messi have all made it to the top of the tree credit to their youth academy of La Masia.

The club genuinely believes in developing young players and giving them ample first team chances to prove their credentials. Hence for any young player, it is a blessing to be picked up  Barcelona.

As for Yacine Adli, it seems that the player will have the pick of his choices. He could choose to stay back at Paris Saint Germain who are undergoing the changes as a part of their new big dream project. However, with the club’s habit of buying talent rather developing players, he may not get adequate chances to prove his mettle.

Moving on to England, the scene at Manchester City could be similar. The Etihad outfit follows the same policy and are unlikely to base their billion dollar project in the form of a 17-year-old. Arsenal could be an ideal destination for Adli but given the uncertainty over Wenger’s future at the club, Emirates could prove to be a gamble.

This would mean that Barcelona could well become the best choice for him should the Catalan giants move for him.
