Luka Romero, Barca and the fear of Kubo 2.0

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 4,560

The 'new Messi' is now officially the youngest La Liga player ever. He was in La Masia when he was seven, but he could not stay as he did not live in Barcelona. Since then, the Barca coaches have got their eyes on him to prevent them missing out on him like they did with Takefusa Kubo.

Luka Romero is the new La Liga sensation since he became the youngest La Liga player to make his debut. Vicente Moreno has had him in the first team for a few weeks and now he will be watched by all many around the world. 

And the thing is that him being dubbed 'the new Messi, the fact he looks similar to him and the fact he is so young make him one of the players to look out for in the coming years. That is what Barca have been doing for some time with the idea of signing him as soon as possible. 

Because, in fact, they already had him in their side. It was at the end of 2011 when Horacio Gaggioli, the same agent who brought Messi to La Masia, did the same with Luka Romero. The player passed the test and was well liked at the club. However, FIFA's rules on minors meant he could not stay there as he did not live in Barcelona. 

Romero left La Masia, but Barca were clear they would call him back once he was old enough to be able to do so. 

While Mallorca and his inner circle are trying to get him to stay at the club, Barcelona are not losing sight of him. Even more so after what happened with Kubo, who is curiously now also at Mallorca. A FIFA ban for signing minors in 2013 prevented a large number of their young talents from playing until they were old enough to do so. Many of them had to do so including the Japanese player. 

Last summer, the Catalans tried to re-sign him, but they were too late. To make things worse, he joined their arch rivals. They did not want the same to happen to Luka Romero so they are keeping their eyes on him. Romero was born in Mexico to Argentinian parents, but he moved to Spain at the age of three.
