Despite his remarkable performances for the FC Barcelona reserve team, young Senegalese international Mikayil Faye has yet to make his debut for the first team, leading to speculation about his future at the club.

Nineteen-year-old Faye, who stands at 1.86 meters tall, has caught the eye of Barcelona’s coaching staff, including legendary player Xavi, who has summoned him to the professional group on multiple occasions.

Since his arrival from NK Kustosija in Croatia last summer, the central defender has made a significant impact with Barcelona’s B team, featuring in 27 matches and netting four goals in the Spanish third division.

Faye’s talents extend beyond club football, as evidenced by his impressive debut for the Senegalese national team against Gabon last March, where he not only played a key defensive role but also found the back of the net in a 3-0 victory.

However, despite his burgeoning potential and successful performances, Faye has yet to make an appearance for Barcelona’s senior squad.

The delay has raised questions about his future at the club, with Faye expressing his desire for an opportunity to showcase his abilities at the highest level.

“In order to truly demonstrate our capabilities, we need the chance to perform on the main stage, and that’s where the current issue lies,” Faye stated.

Barcelona, grappling with financial constraints, has been unable to make high-profile signings, often turning to their renowned youth academy, La Masia, for talent recruitment.

Like fellow academy graduates Pedri, Gavi, and recently emerging central defender Pau Cubarsí, Faye hopes to follow in their footsteps and earn his place in the first team.
