As the summer transfer window fast approaches and trails on by, the business has already begun for top European clubs such as FC Barcelona. The Blaugranes have set their own standard and objectives in relevance to the way they are to approach this transfer window. Investing on free agents, low-cost recruitments and a particular emphasis on young talent seems to be the primary stance.
In the most recent of relevant news concerning FC Barcelona and their pursuit of young talents across Spain and Europe, emerges the name of Mawuli Mensah. The 19-year-old Ghanian currently plies his trade for Antequera Club de Futbol in the Segunda division of the Spanish footballing realm.
As per the report by Angel Garcia, the player excites FC Barcelona and in particular the man whose eye he managed to catch, Bakero, the current scouting director of Barca Atletic and grassroots football. The player has also reportedly managed to catch the eye of La Liga sides Celta Vigo and Real Betis, with both sides also appearing to be keen on inquiring about the player and looking deeper into his capabilities.
Standing at 1.68 meters tall, the 19-year-old Ghanian is by specialty a central midfielder who prefers to operate as an interior for the team. Currently valued at a meager €50,000, the young player has a long way to go still before becoming a household name among Europe’s finest.
With clubs such as FC Barcelona interested in him, it will not be long before Mensah begins to attract even wider interest from other European clubs and becomes a hugely sought-after property in the realms of European football.
