With the official announcement coming from Barcelona’s B team, it’s clear that the ace will initially be with this side – who ply their trade in Spanish football’s third tier.
Ndiaye is certainly an exciting prospect, the talent was called up to Senegal’s senior squad during the November international break, but the ace is yet to make his senior debut for his homeland.
The fact that Ndiaye is a left-sided player also make the talent one to keep an even closer eye on, central defenders like this are hard to find and are considered very valuable at the elite level.
