The FC Barcelona Future Stars (FCFS) is FIFA’s Elite Development Squad. In a 7-year period, the youngsters will graduate to the first team, beginning a journey towards their ultimate goal: the FIFA Club World Cup.


Barcelona are a club who love to bring young players through their fabled La Masia academy and though they had to let the talented Ilaix Moriba depart for RB Leipzig in the summer, so far this season, 11 of the 24 players used by Barcelona have been aged 22 or under. Some you may have already heard of, like United States international full-back Sergino Dest or Spain defender Eric Garcia (a summer signing from Manchester City), but what about the others?

Mingueza has actually enjoyed his best games for Barcelona as right centre-back in a back three, where his abilities come to the fore while having the comfort of a covering defender. The young defender -- who knows his limitations and adapts his game accordingly -- also demonstrated a fair degree of professionalism as he bounced back after being substituted in the first half in the defeat against Paris Saint-Germain. While the jury is still out as to whether the 22-year-old is a long-term regular for Barcelona, he has undoubtedly deserved his chances and could turn out to be a fine utility player for the club.

"PPV per 90 min This beautiful metric is one of the most important to analyse players. PPV means “Pass Progression Value”. It measures the ability of a player to pass the ball into “dangerous zones”. A successful long pass into the box results in lots of positive PPV points – a pass backwards with a danger of opponent interception results in negative values. The higher the PPV per 90 min, the better."

Slowly but surely, Barca have returned to their philosophy of relying on the youth instead of having to fight in the transfer market. Players like Riqui Puig, Ansu Fati, Oscar Mingueza, and Ilaix Moriba are some of the upcoming talents. The Catalans have also purchased some youngster like Ronald Araujo, Pedri, Konrad de la Fuente, Francisco Trincao, and Sergino Dest, who will surely look to be a regular at Camp Nou.
