Barcelona rebel ready to play for the reserve team starting this weekend



When Barcelona confirmed that they had reached an agreement to sign Pablo Torre from Racing Santander earlier this year, it generated a lot of excitement.

After all, the teenager was one of the most exciting young prospects in the lower levels of Spanish football. Moreover, the Blaugrana had defeated arch-rivals Real Madrid in the race to land the 19-year-old midfielder.

However, since arriving at the club, Torre has not had it easy. The young midfielder has featured just once for the senior team so far, that too for only nine minutes in the UEFA Champions League clash against Viktoria Plzen.

Meanwhile, Torre had been refusing to play for Barça Atletic as he did not wish to play in the RFEF First Division only months after helping Racing Santander win promotion from that competition to La Liga 2.

It had created quite a conundrum for the club as the youngster was not getting any playing time, which is crucial for his development.

However, there seems to be a breakthrough in the situation as Mundo Deportivo is now reporting that Torre is willing to play with Barcelona Atletic starting this weekend itself, when they face Murcia at Estadi Johan Cruyff.

While the teenager will continue training with the first-team setup and keep pushing for a spot in Xavi’s plans, the midfielder will turn up for the reserve team whenever he will be told to, as he and his environment understand that it is important for him to be playing regularly.

Barça Atletic manager Rafa Marquez had welcomed the idea of having Torre at his disposal in a recent interview and it looks the Mexican tactician can call upon the young midfielder as early as Saturday against Murcia.
