    We lose ton of players on yearly basis, rarely any of them became anything special.
    We also sign many top prospects, and again rarely any of them become anything special.
    Last truly big name player we lost was Icardi, and he would never have developed same way if he stayed. After that it was the Keita Balde, Grimaldo & Bellerin. Non of whom are truly barca level.

    Exactly. Why we can't produce anything anymore? Thank God for Fati. There's small hope.

    We will have to wait and see if any of these players turn out be any good before raising alarm bells about La Masia. Though, all the money that the Premier League clubs have more their exorbitant TV contracts does mean they have more spending power to entice the youngsters.
    I don't think La Masia produce enough talent these years, and that's the problem -not that players leave to other clubs.
    Grimaldo is world class according to some barcafans with an agenda, but the problem is defunding of La Masia and not strategically betting on youth through the years.
