Barcelona have a reputation of having the best youth system in world football. 

"La Masia" has always been known for their great education, but since the arrival of Johan Cruyff as the head coach of Barcelona, "La Masia" has gained a lot of importance. Particularly the current squad of Barcelona is filled with a big number of home-grown players:

The likes of Victor Valdes, Lionel Messi and Cesc Fabregas were all educated in the famous talent factory.

Many Barcelona fans ask themselves, who will be the next home-grown superstar. Here are the next stars of Barcelona.

Gerard Deulofeu

The promising talent from Riudarenes made his first official appearance on October 29 in 2012 against Mallorca. 

He has great dribbling skills and is very fast. He has everything to make it to a future superstar, his only opponent is himself, because he seems to be a little bit arrogant. 

Barcelona loaned him for one year to Everton and hope that he gets enough first team experience to make the breakthrough.

Jean Marie Dongou


Dongou came to Barcelona in 2008 through the Samuel Eto'o foundation. He often showed his class in the youth of Barcelona and made a very good impression in Barcelona's preseason. 

His performances were so impressive, that Tata Martino took him with the first squad to their Asian Tour.

Frank Bagnack


Another Cameroonian who came to Barcelona through the Samuel Eto'o foundation. He is the discovery of Barcelona's pre-season. 

He was like Dongou allowed to go to the pre-season tour with the first squad. Bagnack is expected to replace the great Puyol in the near future.

Sergi Samper

The 18-year-old Spaniard is actually the brightest midfield talent of Barcelona. His playing style is similar to that of Xavi or Iniesta. He is expected to replace Andres Iniesta in a few years.

Alex Grimaldo


Grimaldo seems to be one of Spain's big pearls. The 17-year-old left back played already in Spain's U21 squad. At the age of 15, he was the youngest player ever to play in a Segunda Division game when he debuted with Barcelona B.

David Babunski

The son of Boban Babunski is a big hope for Barcelona’s midfield in the future. His performances in the second team of Barcelona were so impressive, that he already debuted for the National Team of Macedonia in their friendly against Bulgaria on August 14. 

His younger brother Dorian plays in the youth of Real Madrid.

Adama Traore


He's a winger with Malian roots who plays in Barcelona's Juvenil A. He decided to play for Spain instead of Mali. Traore’s big strengths are his dribbling skills and his pace.

Antonio Sanabria

The 17-year-old forward seems to have a bright future too. He already debuted for the Paraguayan National Team in their 3-3 draw against Germany. 

He is regarded as the greatest talent of Paraguay ever and actually plays in Barcelona's Juvenil A.

Seung Woo Lee


The South-Korean winger is regarded to be the next Leo Messi. His playing style is similar to that of the 4 time Ballon d'Or winner. It is important to build him up carefully and to not put too much pressure on him.

There are a lot of other talents who can become future Camp Nou stars. There is no doubt, that Barcelona has a bright future.
