President Joan Laporta has always been a massive advocate for Barcelona’s academy, La Masia, and the importance it holds in encompassing the essence of Futbol Club Barcelona. Now, in his second tenure as club president, Laporta intends to re-establish the academy as a profitable entity as well as per the reports from Cadena SER.

While La Masia continues to develop and nurture talent of tremendous potential as it always has done, it has lessened its existence as a profitable revenue stream for FC Barcelona.

Players of a higher caliber such as Ansu Fati (at this moment in time), Gavi, Alejandro Balde, and others alike in the main team have more or less been deemed untouchable in terms of selling them for maximizing profit, and thus this leaves behind not much else in terms of sellable assets.

However, there have existed events that took place under the supervision of Joan Laporta that would suggest a change in trends to be already in place. The transfers of both Riqui Puig and Ilaix Moriba were definite examples of this change, as both La Masia products were considered surplus in terms of requirements and thus offloaded.

Current players Nico Gonzalez and Abde Ezzalzouli, on loan at Valencia and CA Osasuna respectively, are both being reportedly considered as La Masia products worth saleable values and expendable within reason.

The objective ultimately lies within Laporta’s goals of expanding Barcelona’s revenue streams and La Masia is undoubtedly one of their biggest assets in terms of sustainability as well as being reasonably profitable in both short and long-term targets.
