Lamine Yamal, aged 16, harbors ambitions, particularly with FC Barcelona, but less so with the Spanish U21 team…

Yamal will feature in the Euros. However, the Barcelona winger doesn’t seem keen on participating in the Paris Olympics a few weeks later.

“It wouldn’t be logical to compete in both tournaments because since I started, I’ve tried not to overload myself and play too much, and it wouldn’t make sense to go to both. But obviously, if I have to go, in the end, you play with Spain and it’s a dream,” emphasized the Blaugrana player to Mundo Deportivo. “It will also depend on how the Euros go, but I think the most important thing would be to be at the Euros,” Yamal continued.

With Barcelona, the young prodigy has ambition and aims to claim Messi’s number 10 jersey. “Certainly. I hope to become a legend of Barcelona,” he responded to the Catalan daily. Currently, it’s held by Ansu Fati: “As you said, it’s Ansu’s number 10, but if eventually it’s not yet available, it would be an honor. It would be any child’s dream to be the number 10 of Barcelona. No one in the world would say no, but it’s something the club has to manage.” Lionel Messi had claimed this shirt at the age of 21.
