There happens to be a new jewel coming through the Barcelona academy and it is not Lamine Yamal. 

If a report from SPORT is to be believed, a certain Guille Fernandez, aged 15, is already juggling between Juvenil A and Juvenil B team, showcasing his prowess of what’s to come.

The outlet writes that Fernandez, at 15 years two months and 21 days, is the second youngest player to make his debut in the Youth League.

Interestingly enough, Lamine, at 15 years, one month and 16 days remains the youngest debutant for the team in the competition.

A Barça historian

The outlet prompts that the youngster is destined for greatness. Last season, he showcased his talents at Juvenil A, and in the current season, he juggles duties between the two youth teams.

Following his inclusion in two league games with Juvenil A and one with Juvenil B, Oscar Lopez decided to hand him his debut in the Youth League. 

During this momentous occasion, Fernandez stepped in for Noah Darvich, becoming the second youngest player ever to don the Barça jersey in the history of the Youth Champions League.

As such, Norwegian midfielder Sverre Nypan holds the remarkable distinction of being the youngest debutant in the Youth League. 

This current Rosenborg first-team player achieved this milestone by making his debut in the youth competition at the incredibly tender age of just 14 years, 9 months, and 11 days.

Destiny has a lot to offer

Fernandez possesses all the attributes required to ascend to the ranks of an elite midfielder, writes Jaume Marcet for the aforementioned outlet. 

Furthermore, it is not a mere coincidence that, much like Lamine and Alejandro Balde, his representative is none other than Jorge Mendes.

The youngster is known for his sheer ball control, but what truly distinguishes him is his remarkable ability to deliver assists. His strong physique enables him to confidently dribble and surge forward without the worry of losing possession.

For years, loyal fans of the youth squad have been well-acquainted with the 15-year-old, closely following his journey on Barça TV. 

Now in his sixth season within the Blaugrana youth academy, Fernandez’s reputation transcends mere talent and physical prowess, leading to the suggestion that he might as well be the next big thing coming out of the academy.
