Barcelona are always on the lookout for the best young players around the world, and have a tendency to bring them through the La Masia academy system.
There have been successes, with both Pedri and Ronald Araujo having now established themselves as first team players at Barca under Xavi Hernandez. The club will hope that new signing Lucas Roman can do the same, having recently trained with Xavi’s squad for the first time.
However, there are occasions when it doesn’t work out. One of these has been Emre Demir, who joined last summer from Turkish side Kayserispor for €2m. Demir was the youngest scorer in Super Lig history, but his time in Catalonia has been disappointing.
He has rarely featured for Rafael Marquez’s Barca Atletic side this season, having made just two substitute appearances. It hasn’t worked out at the club, and they have decided to cut their losses and sell him to Fenerbahce.

Barcelona will retain a 20% sell-on clause for any future sale from the Turkish giants, but are not believed to have received a transfer fee.
