Lamine Yamal burst onto the scene last season, as he became the youngest player in the history of Barcelona to feature for the club.

Lamine Yamal came off the bench on April 29 in a game against Betis, aged 15 years, 9 months and 16 days at the time.

Lamine Yamal has been involved in pre-season games with Barcelona, and it seems he has a bright future ahead.

According to Sport’s Ferran Correas, Xavi fully intends to integrate Lamine Yamal as a member of the Barcelona first team this season.

Yamal won’t leave on loan, and has already been told he will be included in the squad to travel to Getafe for Barca’s La Liga opener this weekend.

Following the departure of Ousmane Dembele, Lamine Yamal will play a back-up role in that position.

Xavi has been left highly impressed with Yamal’s performances since his debut,  and we won’t be surprised if he makes the position his.
