In addition, the 22-year-old has an excellent relationship with the club analysts and reportedly knew the clubs playing style 'by heart' immediately.

He also receives information about opponents before a game and then asks for a video to detail possible improvements after games.

Per Sport, sources inside the club state,

"He is never satisfied with what he does. He is a born perfectionist and he demands himself a lot. He has a very special culture about his work and how to understand football."



"He is ready for everything and loves to get up. His speed in the pass is impressive because the efficiency is almost one hundred percent. "

"He has an innate talent to direct the ball with incredible precision. When he receives, he already knows where he is going to put it."

He has functioned in a variety of roles during his brief Barca career, whether it's playing at the base of the midfield or in a more advanced position.
