Barcelona head coach Quique Setien is ready to guve Ansu Fati and a host of other youngsters chances in the first team, as per a report from Spain.

As much as six Barcelona youngsters will reportedly get chances to impress for the first team under Quique Setien.

May 4 has been penciled down as the likely date for La Liga sides to resume training, under strict measures, and that could mean a window of opportunity for some youngsters.

Prior to the suspension of the La Liga, Barcelona were running on a short squad due to injuries.

Whenever football does resume, it would mean that squad might be strained even further with lots of fixtures having to be played in a short time.

Spanish publication Marca, now claim that Ansu Fati, Riqui Puig, Alex Collado, Ronald Araujo, Inaki Pena and Monchu could be given chances to stake a claim in the first team setup.

Monchu is the captain of the Barcelona B team and is also the team’s top scorer with eight goals.

The report adds that compared to others, Monchu hasn’t had many first-team chances but has trained with the first-team and is highly rated by Setien.

The report concludes that Barcelona still remain bothered about the prospect of losing the youngsters if the Segunda B Division does resume, as the side could need their top players to compete in promotion playoffs.

Meanwhile June 6, June 28 or May 28 has been listed as potential dates for the La Liga to resume proper.
