Barcelona Will Have Two Scouts Present At The FiFA U-20 World Cup To Monitor Talents
Barcelona have made it a point to identify and go after the signing of prodigious young talents across the globe.
The Blaugrana have recently roped in players like Lucas Roman and Julian Araujo, among others, while they have their sights set on a move for Brazilian striker Vitor Roque.
Now, according to Joaquim Piera of SPORT, Barcelona will have two scouts present at the FIFA U-20 World Cup that is set to kick off this month in Argentina to keep an eye out on any young prospects that enjoy a breakthrough at the tournament.
Given their financial situation, it has become imperative for the Catalan giants to try and recruit young players who are more feasible financially than established superstars that could cost a huge sum.
As such, they have been closely monitoring youth competitions, especially in South America, where they had scouts present at the Copinha tournament in Brazil as well as the U-20 and the U-17 South American Championships, where they were impressed by talents such as Endrick, Roque, Kaua Elias, and Rayan, among others.
Now, they wish to keep an eye out on the FIFA U-20 World Cup as well, where there will be plenty of interesting names on display.
One player of interest for Barça, who is set to participate in the competition, is Fabricio Diaz. The Liverpool Montevideo captain, who is very much on the radars at Spotify Camp Nou, will very likely be a part of the Uruguayan U-20 national team.
A move for him is likely to cost around €6 million and personal terms are unlikely to be an issue. Apart from him, the Blaugrana could also look at other special talents at the tournament in Argentina and plan moves for them either immediately or in the future.
