Barcelona management are excited about the potential of Marti Riverola.

Barca Juvenil A captain Riverola has been likened to homespun stars Andres Iniesta and Sergio Busquets.

With Seydou Keita and Yaya Toure leaving Barca for the African Nations Cup in January, Barca coach Pep Guardiola is considering calling up the 18 year-old for significant first team action in the coming months.
