Dennis Suarez arrived at Manchester City from Celta Vigo in May 2011.
Since then he has been impressing his critics and pundits with his immaculate footballing skills and he is tipped to make it big in world football.
The Spaniard had a wonderful tournament in Turkey this summer with the national U-20 team, and now finds himself as a target of Catalan giants FC Barcelona for the second time.
Spanish starlet Suarez is an attacking midfielder who has drawn comparisons with Manchester City colleague David Silva.
Suarez's dribbling and finishing skills makes him a natural goalscorer, while his flair is what makes him stand-out performer at the age of 19.
Creative vision is also a highlight of his playing style and now one can relate the comparisons with Silva.
Suarez also possess a slight frame and is not a physical player. Tackling isn't one of his strength's and he need to fine-tune these skills and attributes to prepare for bigger challenges in football.
Even though an attacking midfielder Suarez can also play a meaningful role on the wings. But he is not a good contributor in defence and that leaves the door open for opposition attacks overloading the wing-back.
Even though he is versatile enough to play in multiple positions, it won't be a good idea to expose your defence and that seems to be delaying his progress into first-team duties in Premier League.
Suarez's stand out performances in age group tournaments have also highlighted his first touch and link up play.
His close control and decision making have also developed beyond his age. Is he a rough diamond or a polished product?
Even though Suarez didn't enjoy the rub of green under Roberto Mancini, Manuel Pellegrini's appointment might prove out to be a difference maker in his career.
Pellegrini had tasted success in Spanish football, and has promoted the talented youngsters with ease and finesse.
Suarez will be hoping that he will be the next in line to enter the big stage under the tactician.
Will he find Barcelona more attractive than Manchester City? Suarez had opted for City ahead of the Catalan giants early in his career.
Now he finds himself in similar situation with Barcelona interested in his services. Even though £4 million is being quoted for his services at present, it is surely going to increase as he establishes himself down the line.
Irrespective of where he ends up at, Suarez has the talent and skill which makes him a special player.
The only remaining question is, how long it will take for him to fulfil his potential?
