His final two seasons at the Camp Nou followed similar patterns as Bojan was in and out of the team with the likes of Messi, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, David Villa and Pedro denying him a regular starting berth. He managed a further 14 league goals in that time but a breakdown in his relationship saw him seek a move.

His time in Milan was, by and large, a torrid one. He scored just three goals and by the end of the season the club opted not to play him at all for fear that he might trigger a clause that forced them to sign him on a permanent basis. A crushing blow for a player low on confidence and whose mental strength, seemingly so strong in his early days with Barcelona, had been questioned.

So that he then came in and scored within half an hour of his full debut showed a confidence and ability to handle the pressure that was just as notable as his technical qualities. Just as Messi was really beginning to showcase his remarkable talents, it seemed that the Catalans had another starlet ready to step up.

I had a relationship with him that I haven had with anyone else. is not to say that Guardiola did not rate the teenager, who would make his only senior international appearance to date at the beginning of the 2008 09 campaign. Indeed his comments early on suggested that he had high hopes for Bojan.

The end of the season saw Rijkaard replaced by Pep Guardiola, a change that marked the beginning of Bojan troubles. He had had a fantastic relationship with the outgoing manager and has since admitted he has struggled to develop the same connection with another manager.

Approaching seven years since his Barcelona debut, Stoke no. 27 cannot live off his reputation much longer. The fact he has ended up at Stoke, in itself, shows that time is running out on that front. He is no longer a youngster trying to find his feet; he is fast approaching the mid point of his career and his once frightening potential has yet to materialise.

The striker got his chance under Frank Rijkaard having impressed for the club team the season before and having reportedly scored over 900 goals for Barcelona various youth teams. Much was expected of Bojan and initially, at least, he looked like he might just deliver.

That he comes to England with a point to prove is also good news for Stoke, that he has been trying to prove that point for the past three seasons less so.

Bojan (27) was nominally playing on the right but the graphic shows he spent little time out wide

There were certainly some positive signs in Stoke opening day defeat to Aston Villa, nothing to go overboard about but enough to give his new club hope that he will prove a smart acquisition.

In pre season there were glimpses of the player he threatened to become as he bagged three times for Hughes side, but it remains to be seen whether he can produce the goods when it really matters.

The youngster finished the season with ten goals in 31 league appearances, many of those from the bench, and was named the La Liga Breakthrough Player of the Year. He also made his mark in the Champions League, scoring the winning goal in Barcelona quarter final clash with Schalke, making him the first player born in the 1990s to score in the competition.

Indeed, the Spaniard's average position was in the centre of the pitch and further forward than any of his team mates, including lone front man Mame Biram Diouf. There appeared to be no shortage of confidence on the ball as Bojan attempted twice as many dribbles any other Stoke player and recorded an impressive passing accuracy of 86.49%.

a doubt, Bojan has all the attributes to be a world star. He is a great talent who has more to come, but has already left his business card, said Rijkaard, ahead of the 2007 08 season. This before Bojan has even made his competitive debut for the club. No pressure then.

A complicated deal saw him join Roma in the summer of 2011 but, despite starting the season in the first XI, he struggled for consistency and after seven goals in 33 games was loaned out to AC Milan the following season.

Having won four league titles, two Champions League and the Copa del Rey by the age of 23, a move to Stoke might not seem like the obvious choice for a Spanish forward once tipped to outshine Lionel Messi.

However, things are not that straightforward where Bojan is concerned. The Stoke new boy has played for a number of Europe most famous clubs in the past four seasons alone but, despite numerous chances to shine, he has largely failed to live up to the hype that surrounded him when he first burst onto the scene as a 17 year old at Barcelona.

Barcelona exercised their buy back option last summer but instantly loaned Bojan out again, this time to Ajax. Once again he started brightly but, once again, he was unable to maintain his early season form. The Dutch giants decided against extending the loan and so, after talking to Mark Hughes, Bojan signed for Stoke.

They are words that Bojan must heed before it is too late or he faces becoming little more than a cautionary tale of unfulfilled potential.
