Lamine Yamal is a highly-regarded prospect in the Barcelona youth system. With the club expecting him to play a significant role in their future plans. The Catalan giants have made it a priority to secure his future at the club both in terms of his contract and on the sporting front.

It’s great to hear that the Barcelona first team manager, Xavi Hernandez, is showing faith in Lamine Yamal. According to a report by Mundo Deportivo, Xavi has regularly invited the 15-year-old to train with the first team. He will do so again for the upcoming match against Getafe in La Liga Santander. Hence, this is a clear indication that Yamal is highly regarded at the club and could be a future star for Barcelona.

How is Barcelona coping with the injuries?

It seems that Barcelona’s current situation is a bit difficult. As the team is struggling with injuries to key players, which has led to a drop in performance levels. As a result, Xavi seems to be turning to La Masia talents to fill in for the injured players and bring their unique qualities to the team. The injuries of Andreas Christensen, Pedri, Ousmane Dembele, and Frenkie De Jong have significantly affected the team’s quality and structure.

It is not yet clear which of these young players will make the cut for the match against Getafe. However, Xavi’s willingness to give La Masia talents a chance highlights his belief in the club’s youth academy and the importance of developing young players for the first team. Barcelona is facing financial difficulties and unable to spend big on transfers. Hence, promoting young players from within the club could be the way forward.

Barcelona will face Getafe at the Estadio Coliseum Alfonso Pérez in Madrid on Sunday, April 16th. This game is crucial for Barcelona’s chances of winning the La Liga title this season. A victory would put them in a strong position to be crowned Spanish champions.
