Manchester United in Talks with Barcelona to Acquire Marc Jurado


Manchester United will sign 16-year-old teenager Marc Jurado from Barcelona after having reached a contractual agreement, Diario Sport reports.

Jurado turned down the Catalan club’s offer for a contract extension and has a deal in place to move to England. He is set to arrive this summer at United with a fee of €1.5 m (£1.3 m) relative to the player’s development.

Jurado has played in the youth teams of the Blaugrana over the past nine years. Despite Barcelona promising to continue progressing through the ranks alongside an improved salary, the young player has decided to go to Old Trafford instead.

Over the years, Barcelona has lost a number of promising youth players, but they believed that last year’s contract extensions given to rising talent Ansu Fati and Ilaix Moriba turned the tide.

The teenager had played this campaign for the Cadet A side of the club, and was due to be promoted next season to the Juvenil B team. The right-back defender celebrated his 16th birthday last month.
