Espanyol fume as Barcelona raid youth setup for seven top prospects

Barcelona are being accused of hypocrisy over their raid on Espanyol's youth team.

RAC1 says Espanyol chiefs are fuming after seeing six of their junior players snapped up by Barca - with a seventh currently in advanced negotiations.

Barca have complained about Arsenal's capture of Jon Miquel Toral earlier this season, but did not think twice in raiding neighbours Espanyol for the best of their youth talent.

Barca's capture is of three cadetes, two benjamines and one prebenjamín from Espanyol's youth setup.
