The club ensures with him the continuity of the youth team that was proclaimed champion of the Youth League, the Youth Championships, last season, 2017-18.
Álex Collado is one of those players who ‘whistle’, who promise, who aim. Zurdo, 19 years old, is one of the pearls of the Barça youth team. The club announced its renewal this afternoon until 2021, after those of Abel Ruiz, Oscar Mingueza, Jandro Orellana, Oriol Busquets, Riqui Puig, Monchu and Juan Miranda. Barça is assured by Álex Collado the continuity of the youth team that was proclaimed champion of the Youth League, the Youth Championships, last season, 2017-18.
In his case it bears an asterisk, linked to its growth. Collado arrived at La Masía nine years ago, in 2009, at Alevín B. His trophies were growing almost at the same time as the candles in his birthday cakes. He was league champion with the Alevín A, with the Infantil A, with the Cadet B, with the Cadet A and with the Juvenil A. The idea of the club is to make this preseason with the first team. Top scorer in Junior League Youth Honor Division (11 goals) in the Youth League also left his name: he played ten games and also thrashed, four times. One of them in the semifinal, against Manchester City. With Barça B in Segunda, last season, he made his debut. It was in Lorca, day 31, holder: played 70 minutes. The Bundesliga knocked on his door. Also the Premier. The club keeps him. Here the asterisk.
Because that end in 2021 could be extended two more years (until 2023) and because its clause will be 50 million while it remains in Barcelona B but if it is registered in the first team it would automatically double, it would reach one hundred million. Crack clause. To what it points.
