'Xavi will call him up very soon': Cules raving about new signing who plays for Barca Atletic

Barca fans are in awe of Mikayil Faye's performances for Barca Atletic.

On Sunday, the Senegalese impressed once again as Rafa Marquez's side faced Gimnastic Tarragona.

In one of the best episodes of the game, the 19-year-old completed a picture-perfect tackle inside his own box, preventing an obvious goalscoring opportunity.

What a great timing to close the opponent down.

No foul here! Can you imagine?

Here is how some Cules react.

💭 TheStrategist (Twitter): "Faye was stellar defensively. Nevertheless, he still needs to improve when receiving the ball under pressure and learn how much risk he can take with the ball at his feet. Overall, another immense performance again. We will see him with Xavi very soon."

💭 AM10 (Twitter): "The moment I saw Mikayil Faye, I knew there's a superstar in the making. Simply sensational talent. The sort of ease he duels with — physically shoving off the attacker, it’s brilliant. His comfort on the ball — especially his range of passing is super impressive. Stupendous."

💭 Neal (Twitter): "Yeah, Mikayil Faye is a monster. I'm already a very big fan. Curious to see what Xavi has in store for him. He's going to outgrow Barca Atletic very soon, IMO."

Barcelona signed Faye for Barca Atletic earlier this summer. The powerful centre-back joined the club from the Croatian second division for €1.5m plus add-ons.
