Marc Bernal is one of the most talented players Barcelona have in their youth academy right now, with the forward making waves with his performances in the youth competitions.

Barcelona are aware of Bernal’s potential, as the youngster impressed onlookers with his technical quality and ability to control the play from the middle.

That is why Bernal is one of the players Hansi Flick will be keeping a close eye on as he looks to assess all his options before embarking on a pre-season campaign.

Marc Bernal’s message to Hansi Flick

Bernal did little to dispel that notion with a starring performance for Barça Athletic in their recent match against Deportivo.

Nicknamed the ‘Berga panzer,’ Bernal showcased his versatility across the midfield, excelling in both defensive and attacking duties.

His tireless work rate saw him win tackles and pressurize opponents, while his technical ability shone through with driving runs and defence-splitting passes.

The 17-year-old’s impact was reflected in the scoreline as well, with two key contributions directly leading to Barça Athletic’s goals.

Bernal’s first goal involvement saw him meet a long ball from Casado with power and pace, delivering a pinpoint cross for Pau Victor to equalize. Later, he orchestrated the team’s second goal with a perfectly weighted pass to Marc Guiu, who finished clinically.

While Bernal may not be a household name just yet, his performance against Deportive has sent a clear message to the incoming manager, who is not averse to giving young players the opportunity to perform at the highest level.

It will be fascinating to see how Flick integrates Bernal into his plans for the upcoming season. The player, for his part, dreams of making an impact in the senior side sometime soon.
