The youngest players to debut for Barcelona since 2000

For a club so rich in silverware and winning trophies mercilessly, you’d think Barcelona were exclusively spending big money to achieve such riches.

They do – and in recent years they’ve spent aimlessly and had no success to show for it – but when at their best, they balance that cutting edge quality with the highest level of ability from their youth ranks.

La Blaugrana have blooded in some of football’s greatest players from their academy and continue to do so. 90min lists the 30 youngest players to ever make their debut for the club.
