Manchester City reportedly attempted to recruit Barcelona’s “Young Gun” Ramin Yamal.
Global media “Gol dotcom” reported on the 16th (Korea Standard Time) that “Man City attempted to recruit Ramin Yamal of Barcelona during the summer transfer period.”
Yamal, who is considered the best talent of Barcelona youth “La Masia” at the age of 2007, was substituted against Real Betis last season and broke the record of the youngest player in the club’s history and the youngest appearance in La Liga (16 years and 38 days). He also showed his value in front of Barcelona fans by creating threatening breakthroughs and opportunities despite his short playing time.
Having confirmed Yamal’s potential, Xavi is giving him a chance to boldly start the game early in the season. Yamal, who played in all four league games played by Barcelona this season, is playing one of the pillars of Barcelona’s offense with his excellent breakthrough and sharp shooting ability regardless of left and right sides.
Along with his outstanding performance, he also celebrated his debut for the Spanish national team. In the match against Georgia on the 9th, he broke Spain’s youngest A-match debut record in the 44th minute of the first half and scored in the 29th minute of the second half, setting the youngest A-match score in Spain. He also made his starting debut against Cyprus on the 13th, leading the team to a 6-0 victory.
Director Xavi is also showing great expectations for Yamal, who boasts all-time talent. Director Xavi said in an interview, “I have a lot of expectations for Yamal. He is a unique, smart, judgmental and accurate decision-making player. This is the most important thing for a soccer player.”
He will also have no problem dealing with what is to come for him. He loves soccer and is a humble man. Of course, there can be competition. I can confirm that he is ready to play for the team,” he praised.
Seeing Yamal’s young age and potential, it turned out that “European champion” Manchester City drooled. “If Manchester City had put all their efforts into recruiting him this summer, something surprising might have happened,” Gol Dotcom quoted Spain’s Radio Marca.
Yamal and Alejandro Valde were in a situation where they could leave Barcelona this summer. “We confirmed that there was an inquiry from Manchester City about Yamal by Enric Masif, an adviser to Chairman Juan Laporta,” he said, expressing Manchester City’s interest in Yamal.
