Fati, who plays as a forward for Victor Valdes’ Juvenil A side, has only been training with the first team for the past week

The injuries to Lionel Messi , Luis Suarez and Ousmane Dembele have opened up space in Valverde ‘s squad for the likes of Fati and Abel Ruiz to prove themselves

Fati was born in Guinea-Bissau on October 31, 2002

According to Mundo Deportivo , Fati arrived at Sevilla three years ago and moved to La Masia in his teenage years

If he plays against Betis on Sunday, Fati (16 years and 298 days old) will become the second youngest player in Barcelona ‘s history to feature in an official match

Vicente Martinez was 16 years and 278 days old when he played during the 1941/42 season. Messi is fifth on the list, making his competitive Barcelona debut aged 17 years and 114 days

Fati recently renewed his contract at the Catalan club until June 2022
