General Comments:-

To start with, it might be strange doing a profile on such a young and maybe not so well known player but i can ensure you that Deulofeu has serious talent. He is a very creative player that one day could give any team an extra spark of life, This player has bits of everything in his game. Good vision, pace, flair, score goals, good crosser and his movement is fantastic. What leagues could he fit into? well i believe if he lives up to his potential and is treated correctly, he could play in any league. Deulofeu is one for the future and we should all keep an eye on him and lets hope he lives up to his potential. Will he move club? well if i was him i would stay at Barcelona and grow as a player, but his future might not be in his hands and he may be forced to leave, if this is the case i think he should try stay in Spain and learn the game a little more then one day he could go on to greatness.

I have decided not to do a summary of Deulofeu because he such a raw talent and can still improve or even develop more weaknesses.
