    You guys didn't talk about the most famous barca youth product that left, Cesc Fabregras, the prodigal son that returned and then left again when he couldn't get games.

    Please do a video on how that blanket ban on youth players ruined their careers. Also how it was overturned in madrids case. Fifa is corrupt as af and would do everything to satisfy their Madrid masters

    Dani Olmo - I think best player on this list, Tactical winger who is key man in Dinamo's Lineup. Underrated asf, I watched him play.

    They are more better youth players than Xavi Simmons in the academy. He is more hyped and given attention because of the hair he has like Carles Puyol, name of Xavi Hernandez and the nationality of famous Johan Cruyff. It's all due to these he has those "2 million followers on Instagram".

    Barcelona’s president & Valverde is the problem. They don’t trust the academy enough. Btw you forgot to include Roberto Navarro who got snapped up by Monaco. You also forgot Balde Keita, Adama Traore, Manu Trigueros, Sergi Gomez, Antonio Sanabria, Oriol Romeu & Alex Blanco.
    Barcelona need to keep their Young talents like Ansu Fati, Carles Alena, Oriel Busquets, Abel Ruiz, Riqui Puig, Chumi, Jorge Cuenca, Moussa Waguec Carles Perez and Alex Collado etc.

    Are you able to make one explaining the Spanish football tiers. Can't seem to understand why Real Madrid B &
    Barca B etc, play in the second division. How does it all work

    Valencias Paterna is just as interesting and good as La Masia. Stars and prospects like: David Silva, Raul Albiol, Paco Alcacer, Jordi Alba, Ferran Torres, Carlos Soler, Kangin Lee, Grimaldo, Borja Iglesias, Centelles, Isco, Guillamon, Koba Kondreidi, Ferhat Cogalan, Nabil Touaizi, etc.

    Grimaldo is from Paterna, not La Masia. Same thing with Abel Ruiz.

    Valverde is busy buying big money flops meanwhile quality barca players cominh through the academy have no choice but to leave ;(

    Please to something on AC Milan.. either on the recent Giampaolo's demise, or more broadly on the rollercoaster since Allegri left... when all the problems started.

    Benfica fan here. I remember in the very first UEFA Youth League final La Masia absolutely killed our boys, especially Munir. He scored the 3-0 from their side of the pitch. It was heart wrenching, but fast forward a few years they gave us Grimaldo so I think it makes it okay.

    Grimaldo to Man Utd to replace shaw would be a good deal
