Barca are trying to set up some football schools in china and brazil. in the case of china, this will not only help us by finding some up and coming chinese talent but also be a catalyst for the game in china.
if we manage to set these up espect alot of talent coming ourway in the future
i think the reason for setting up one in china is because they are eager to become a football power with the population they have. barca notices this so they are trying to snap up the talent aswell as improving the game over there.
would be funny if the barca team in 10 years is a bunch of chinese with spanish citizenship
Yes, at the moment the best talent will probably be found in Brasil. That good very well change in the long run though, when football becomes popular in China. Besides that, a good player from countries like China, Korea, Japan will be very good for Barcelona's marketing activities -> money!!!!! Countries like this aren't used to having fellow countrymen playing at the major clubs in europe and, as soccer is becoming more popular every day over there, the players that do make are considered 'gods' (or at least half-gods ). Look at what happend in Korea! Look at nakata at Parma and Ono at Feyenoord. They're gods in Japan and bring in alot of money for their clubs!
Well, I have heard a little bit of talk on the radio stations and some of the pre-season NFL type shows about the deal with FC Barcelona. I guess you could say that this would mean that players would be more likely to go to Barcelona if they are ready to go to europe.
That being said, its still pretty rare to see european team shirts.
I find it a little difficult to believe Barc,a is that popular because I figured Celtic would be the most popular, but its good to hear.
ON the other hand, I don't find it hard to belive that barc,a is the most popular club for South Americans.
barça is studing to create football schools in china and in brasil, the financial stop the operation.
in china the club will' give' the name to two teams, the problem here is not the financial, is to follow the teams and the school
brasil, they want money and barça thinks that theses schools would not been a financial trouble for barça
Well, I know Ajax got some talents out of their South-African school (Benni McCarthy, for instance), so it could bring some goods. But in the end marketing will be a massive reason for us to start these schools....
But is it bad to make money of which we can buy new players?
