One of the most exciting young players in Spanish football is Bryan Gil. The Sevilla player on loan at Eibar has been making waves with his play this season. The winger is an exciting prospect for anyone and seems to have caught the eye of Barcelona.

Specifically, German Vaya Ballabriga ‘Mani’, a well-known Barca scout commented on the player this week. Mani helped Barca to discover players like Fait and Iniesta, so his opinion is worth our time.

“Right now he is Spain’s best footballer and I compare him with Neymar,” Mani said.

“He can do certain things and has great versatility, as he can play at full-back in the middle or on the left wing. It’s impressive.

“I have spoken with Roman Planes about him and he has Bryan Gil in mind.

“If he is signed now then his release clause is 35m euros, but if he signs a new deal with Sevilla then he’ll have a release clause worth 150m euros.”
