Manchester United land Barcelona teenager Marc Jurado

Manchester United have agreed a deal to sign Barcelona’s 16-year-old defender Marc Jurado, according to Barcelona-based journalist Albert Rogé.

The right-back turned down an offer from Barca ahead of his move to Old Trafford this summer. The Catalan club proposed a three-year deal, however, Jurado, who spent this season with the club’s U16 team, has decided to accept an offer to move to United.

His non-professional terms with Barca expire this summer, meaning the English club will only pay a small amount of compensation in development rights, believed to be in the region of €200,000.
