FC Barcelona: Five of the Next Generation from La Masia

Gerard Deulofeu

Age: 18

Credentials: Already has a senior cap for Barcelona and been through the ranks of the under 16, 17 and 19 age levels for Spain.

Deulofeu has recently been linked with a move to Liverpool with the reds rumoured to be willing to pay £7.5 million for the services of the Barcelona man.  The Anfield side are not the only ones tracking the youngster with QPR and Chelsea also interested.  Barca coach Tito Vilanova is rumoured to be undecided over the future of Deulofeu however the chances are that he will stay at the Camp Nou.

A move away would give Deulofeu more playing time and he would be able to experience a faster pace of football in the Premiership adding to his resumé.  However it is more likely that he would be loaned out rather than sold.

The jewel in the crown of Barca B last season, Deulofeu’s explosive pace and skill with the ball have been the main attributes that were most impressive.  Expect to see him in La Liga next season.

Future Barca first teamer? Definitely.  Seems to have it all.  Barca more likely to loan him out rather than sell him.
