Kaizer Chiefs Youngster to Jet off to Barcelona at the end of the Season

Kaizer Chiefs youngster set to jet off to Barcelona at the end of the current season.

The Spanish Giants have made contact with Amakhosi about having the 17-year old Mduduzi Shabalala for an assessment at the end of the season.

However no formal agreement has been reached between the Catalan giants and the Soweto giants yet.

According to Soccer Laduma the player is likely to travel to Barcelona where he will be assessed by the club's Academy known as La Masia Academy.

"Contact was made by La Masia, but nothing has been confirmed yet. They were checking the possibilities of having him over," revealed a source.

The source added that the Spanish Giants are looking to have the player in June during the off season.

The youngster currently trades his play in the Amakhosi reserve side in the DStv Diski Challenge.

He has been outstanding for Amakhosi this season and has also seen his market value increasing rapidly.

The player was also roped in to the senior team by head coach Stuart Baxter.

This came after the club was hit by the outbreak of the Covid-19 at Naturena village that saw not less than 36 people testing positive.

The player also archived a milestone in 2020 after he was crowned as COSAFA under 17 Player of the Tournament.

The youngster was supposed to travel to Spain at that time for a different trip after he was selected for a La Liga development experience, where he was set to experience how is the football in Spain and he was also set to train with local clubs.

However the Covid-19 travel restrictions prevented the youngster from traveling outside of the country as the restrictions were much strict at the time.

The player will be looking to gain experience on his trip to Barca that will help his career going forward.
