At the age of 16 years, nine months and 25 days, Guinea Bissau-born forward Fati became Barcelona's second-youngest player ever when he made his debut against Real Betis on Sunday. The African wonderkid narrowly missed out on the top spot to defender Vicente Martinez, who debuted for Barca in 1941 against Real Madrid at the age of 16 years, nine months and seven days.
Bojan Krcic, who recently joined MLS side Montreal Impact, is the third-youngest player to have featured for the Blaugrana after making his debut for the club at the age of 17 years and 19 days in 2007. Bojan went on to make more than 150 appearances for the Blaugrana before enjoying spells at Roma, AC Milan, Ajax Amsterdam and Stoke City.
The biggest name on the list is that of Lionel Messi, who made his debut for the Catalan giants at the age of 17 years, three months and 22 days in 2004. At the time, the Argentine superstar ranked second among Barca's youngest debutants, but he is now in fifth spot after being surpassed by Fati, Bojan and Marc Muniesa.
Gerard Deulofeu and Adama Traore, who both currently ply their trade in the Premier League, feature in ninth and 10 place, respectively – you can view the full top 10 by scrolling through the gallery above!
