It’s pretty much indisputable that FC Barcelona has the best youth system of any team on the planet right now. It’s reasonably arguable that they’re the best ever at turning little kids into footballing geniuses. It’s only fitting that the building that houses the heart and soul of the system should be the best in the world.

This is the new La Masia, the replacement for the centuries old farmhouse which formerly housed some of Barca’s brightest starlets. It oozes modernity from every atom. This is not the old FC Barcelona, the romanticized beacon of all things Catalan. This is 21st century Barca, fusing tradition with corporate efficiency to amass more glittering silverware than a five-star restaurant.
