Lamine Yamal The Barcelona and Spain Sensation – Unveiling the Contract, Playing Style, and La Liga Records Broken.

Fans of Barcelona all over the world are always keeping a close eye on the newest players to come through the club’s famous school.

Now, a lot of their attention is on Lamine Yamal, a new star from the Spanish giants’ La Masia production line.

Barça manager Xavi made Lamine Yamal’s debut on April 29, 2023, when he was only 15 years, 9 months, and 16 days old. He was the youngest player to ever make his appearance for the club, and it was in a 4-0 win over Real Betis.

More games have been played for him this season (2023–24), and on September 8, when Spain played Georgia in Euro 2024 qualifiers, he made more history.

He broke both records by becoming Spain’s youngest male player and scorer at the age of 16 years and 57 days. The previous record holder was Barça partner Gavi, who made his senior international debut at 17 years and 62 days old in 2021.

Yamal scored Barça’s first goal in their comeback to tie Granada 2-2 on October 8, making him the youngest player in Liga history to score a goal.

People at The Sporting News read about him and his story.

What does Lamine Yamal do?

He was born in Esplugues de Llobregat, Spain, on July 13, 2007. Morocco is where his father is from and Equatorial Guinea is where his mother is from.

Once he got to Barcelona in 2014, he joined the club’s youth program and did what most young players do when they want to make their start for a senior club.

The Moroccan Football Federation noticed how well he played at La Masia and wanted to cap the player at the young level. However, the forward has played for Spain from the Under-15s level up to the Under-19s level.

He was called up to the Spain XI team for the September 2023 international match. In Euro 2024 qualifying games, Spain will play Georgia and then Cyprus.

Pay, release clause, and Lamine Yamal’s contract

Barcelona said that Lamine Yamal had signed a new deal with the club on October 2, 2023.

The deal is good until June 30, 2026, and there is a €1 billion release clause in it.

Sport also says that there is an understanding that Lamine Yamal’s contract will be changed automatically when he turns 18. His current contract will end at that point, and a new one will be signed that will last until June 2030 and include a big pay raise.

A source says that he makes about $1 million a year.

The way Lamine Yamal plays the game

Lamine Yamal plays as a right winger, even though he is better with his left foot. His coaches talk a lot about how he can sneak past his defenders by cutting in and going around players on the right.

Along with his ability to dribble, Lamine Yamal’s best offensive skills are his speed and ability to finish. “He is different,” Xavi said of the young player before putting him in his team for the first time for a game on April 23 against Atletico Madrid.

“He has natural talent, and kids aren’t scared of him.” It has been great training for him. Putting him on the list seemed like the best thing to do.

The youngest players to play for Barcelona

The record was held by Vicenc Martinez Alama, who was born in Barcelona on January 12, 1925, and made his first-team start on October 18, 1941, when he was 16 years, 9 months, and 5 days old. Lamine Yamal beat him in the match against Betis.

Here are the five youngest players to ever play for Barcelona.

PlayerAge on debut
Lamine Yamal15 years, nine months, 16 days
Vicenç Martinez16 years, nine months, five days
Ansu Fati16 years, nine months, five days
Bojan Krkic17 years, 19 days

Luka Romero, who was born on November 18, 2004, is still the youngest player to make his La Liga start. He is 15 years and 255 days old.

Romero was born in Mexico but became an Argentine citizen. On June 24, 2020, he came on as a substitute for REAL MADRID in their 2-0 win over his Mallorca team.

Name of Lamine Yamal in full

The full name of Lamine Yamal is Lamine Yamal Nasraoui Ebana. The last name on his father’s side is Nasraoui, and the last name on his mother’s side is Ebana.

Because of the way names are usually spelled in Spain, you should call him “Lamine Yamal” instead of just “Lamine” or “Yamal.”
