Manchester United "agree terms" to sign Barcelona wonderkid this summer

Manchester United have reportedly agreed on terms for bringing Barcelona right-back Marc Jurado to Old Trafford this summer. Jurado, 16, is considered to be one of the most talented youngsters coming from Catalan giant's academy. He has spent nine years at the Spanish club. Barcelona had reportedly been confident of keeping Jurado at Camp Nou. However, according to the Spanish outlet Sport, the Red Devils managed to get agreement on a deal after several weeks of negotiations. Previously United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has shared his thoughts on the teenager, saying: "As Sir Matt [Busby] once said, if they're good enough, they're old enough. We are built on that tradition. We need young players coming through. It's important for the Academy and the players in the Academy to know that, yes, I am looking to progress players through. It comes to playing style and how we want to look in one, two years’ time. It's about finding players with the Man United identity and DNA. It's up to them to use their imagination and creativity and just enjoy playing for this club because that's the best time of your life. If you're a regular at Man United, you should grasp the opportunity to stay here and become part of this history. You go into every single game at Manchester United as a player or a manager, thinking you're going to win. That's just the nature of this club. The next one is always the important one."
