The relegation of Barça B to the Spanish third division has taken its toll on the club's youth system, and moves are going to happen.
New first team technical secretary, Robert Fernández, spoke on Thursday about his role as an official with the Blaugrana, and he seems to be deeply involved in the inner workings of the institution, which apparently includes taking care of transfers as well. Fernández talked to the media about all rumors surrounding the team, and he made clear that two youngsters will go out to get experience: midfielder Alen Halilovic and winger Adama Traoré, both highly rumored to move away from Segunda B.
"Halilovic is sure to go on loan to another team. We have told the player that that’s Barça’s intention. We’ll look for a loan deal where he can continue to develop as a player and come back next year. He’s a young player with a lot of quality."
"He’s a magnificent player but due to certain circumstances he hasn’t managed to find a place in the first team. He might leave."
Halilovic is a gem, and he's a future star, which is why the club is clearly looking to loan and get him back as safely as possible. Adama, however, has never been able to take the next step and move into The Show with immediate impact. Sources say the Blaugrana are comfortable with selling him for even a low price, and the Premier League seems to be his destination.
What do you say, Blaugranes? Good move for the kids?
