The Barça Academy is still a basis today for training the rising talent of both coaches and players, and a valuable source of new blood at La Masía.

The planning for the new season, which is being supervised by the assistance manager of the club and academy’s Methodology department, Isaac Guerrero, is once again committed to recruiting home-groomed talent who have plenty of years of background in the Barça playing style and values.
