FC Barcelona never seem to shy away from scouting promising talents no matter what. Despite their obvious financial problems, the Blaugranes continue to entrust in the youth regardless of the investment involved. However, there definitely exist limitations.
Barcelona are only able to pursue the signatures of players that are within their accessible financial budget. As such, many of the established young superstars are not exactly within their reach.
This is where the players that are yet to properly explode come into play. Names that are not household ones just yet end up costing less than those that are. As such, the name of Alvaro Montoro is one that remains prominent in the list of targets for Barcelona.
Moreover, as SPORT claims, Barça seem to be the best-placed team to take him away from Velez Sarsfield. The Argentine club is currently home to the talented 16-year-old wonderkid and Barcelona would be more than happy to take over.
Despite recent attempts by clubs such as Roma to launch an initiative to get him, it appears that the player himself leans towards Barcelona. The project offered by the Catalan giants is one that personally intrigued him, as the report states.
His ‘refined’ technique and technical skill have led to comparisons being drawn with Barcelona legend Andres Iniesta. Be that as it may, the player will first have to prove himself in Europe for Barcelona, or any other club for that matter, to consider him of such high praise.
For now, his talents do still manage to attract the interest Blaugrana interest. Not having signed a proper professional contract yet, he remains an open target for any club that deems his talents to be worth investing in. It remains to be seen if Barcelona end up making a move or not, however.
