Mátyás Tajti, the promising young talent from Puskás Akadémia, has chosen Barcelona instead of Real Madrid. The contract will be secured on June 2nd, when he reaches the age of 16, report origo.hu.
Although the Spanish interest was well known, the announcement was only made recently as Barcelona was threatened to be banned from the next two transfer window. However, FIFA suspended the punishment, hence all obstruction moved away from the transfer.
Both Real Madrid and Barcelona showed interest toward the Hungarian youngster and the Blancos had a better position as they are partners of PuskásAkadémia. Yet Tajti chose the Catalonian club as he is a fan of the Balugranas and was allowed to choose freely.
According to origo.hu, the soonest when he can join the famous youth academy of Barcelona, La Masia, is June 2nd. It is his 16th birthday, because only at least 16 years old players can be transferred.
El MundoDeportivo said that Tajti is the most promising Hungarian young player. Barcelona discovered him on an U16 tournament and invited him to train. He returned with the determination that he would like to continue his career at La Masia.
