Summoned for the first time with senior team of Xavi Hernandez for the derby against Espanyol, Ilias Akhomach had even started and participated in the victory of his team against Espanyol (1-0).

But before taking his first professional steps last Saturday, the young Hispano-Moroccan talent could have signed with the eternal rival: Real Madrid. Indeed, after his transition from 7-a-side football to 11-a-side football, the striker was ultimately signed by the Catalan recruiting team. 

At the microphone of the Cadena SER, his agent Horacio Gaggioli confessed that the Los Blancos had offered a contract to the 17-year-old player, while he was playing at Nàstic Manresa:

"Madrid wanted him and others teams in Europe were interested, but the player chose to return to Barca. " Despite his precocity, his representative confided to Spanish radio that “It is difficult for Ilias to reach the sky, he has his feet on the ground. He is very grateful, but he knows he is a teenager. He's a great professional ”.
